Kardashians Give E! Its Biggest Ratings Ever

More than 4 million tune in for the latest adventures of the reality family

It’s getting tougher and tougher for the competiton to keep up with the Kardhashians.

Sunday night’s episode of E!’s "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" gave E! its most-watched hour ever, with more than 4.2 million viewers tuning in for the antics of the Kardashian clan, according to Nielsen data. That’s more viewers than watched a special 10 p.m. repeat of "Desperate Housewives" on ABC, as well as seven times higher than E!’s primetime average this quarter.

Among E!’s target demographic of women 18-34, "Keeping Up" notched a 5.1 rating– not quite a record, but still better than programming on ABC, CBS and NBC.

An hour earlier, the E! specal "Kendra: Here Comes the Baby," drew 2.7 million viewers. That’s the best number yet for the "Kendra" franchise.
