As “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” have experienced a drop in ratings since the premiere of its new season, the clan has reportedly been pointing the finger at lead star Kim Kardashian. The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” season 13 debut was claimed to have significantly fewer audiences compared to last year’s premiere.

As pointed out by Unreality TV, Kim Kardashian is taking the blame as the number of viewers for the new season fell by 33 percent. “The entire family is completely freaking out right now,” an insider said to Radar Online, emphasizing other “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” stars, including sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian. “They would not know what they would do with themselves if the show got canceled.”

Even stepsisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner along with matriarch Kris Jenner are reportedly upset with Kim Kardashian. It was Kourtney, however, who was reportedly outraged by the lowered ratings of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” According to the insider, the eldest sister “is relying on her [Kim] to keep them on the air.”

 “Kim seems to be completely just over it because she seems to think that she will continue being super famous whether or not KUWTK is on the air!” the source added. The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” season 13 premiere debuted to 1.48 million viewers on March 12 while the second episode reportedly raised the numbers by 100,000. According to TV By The Numbers, episode two of the reality series’ latest season raked in 1.58 million viewers.

Meanwhile, a teaser for the new episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” features Kim revealing her plans to have a third baby with husband, Kanye West. "I'm going to try to have one more baby," Kim Kardashian said in a preview released after the episode on March 26. "I want my kids to have siblings but my doctors don't feel it's safe for me."

According to Billboard, the mother-of-two had gone through several complications during her past pregnancies; with North West, she went through placenta accreta in which the placenta develops far into the uterus. With Saint West, the baby was found to have been in breech that means the baby was not placed in the right direction while in utero. Meanwhile, a catch-up preview of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" season 13, episode 3 can be viewed below.
