E!'s ‘Kardashians’ Hits Season High With Finale

E! said the two-part season-nine finale of Keeping up with the Kardashians hit season highs, including 2.8 million total viewers for the Sunday-night (Aug. 31) episode from 9-10:30 p.m. Collectively, the Sunday and Monday night (9-10 p.m.) episodes drew 5.8 million total unique viewers, meaning viewers who each tuned in for at least 6 minutes and a bigger number than average total viewers.

The Sunday episode hit season highs across other key demographics in terms of total viewers, E! said: it drew 1.9 million adults ages 18-49 and 1.2 million adults ages 18-34. Those demo gains were about 10% above what the season-opening episode delivered, and was the most watched original episode in more than a year. It was the most-watched original episode in those two demos since the season-eight premiere in June 2013, E! said.

The episodes were about the family's events leading up to the wedding of Kim Kardashian.

E! also said the series #RichKids of Beverly Hills drew 1.9 million total unique viewers across two premieres over the holiday weekend, and that Sunday’s original was the most-watched episode for the series to date among adults ages 18-49 (863,000) and ages 18-34 (699,000).
