FYI Orders 15 Additional Episodes of Khloé Kardashian’s Talk Show ‘Kocktails With Khloé’

FYI has ordered 15 additional episodes of Khloé Kardashian’s primetime talk show “Kocktails With Khloé,” Variety has learned.

The episodic order comes after the show debuted on Jan. 20 to the network’s highest-rated series premiere in FYI’s history.

Hosted and exec produced by Kardashian, “Kocktails With Khloé,” which hails from Pilgrim Media Group, takes a spin on the traditional talk show: It’s set in a replica home with no studio audience, but plenty of guests join the reality TV personality in the kitchen for a dinner party with cooking, cocktails, party games and conversations. Guests so far have included Kardashian’s sister Kendall Jenner, Snoop Dogg, Aisha Tyler and “Real Housewives” star Brandi Glanville. Chef Sharone Hakman is a staple on the show.

“Khloé and her iconic brand have struck a chord with FYI viewers, who have been extremely interactive with the show on social media. Her ability to draw upscale millennial viewers across all our platforms in record numbers is a game changer for FYI,” said Gena McCarthy, FYI’s senior vice president of programming and development.

“Khloé’s creativity, wit and work ethic make her a perfect host and an ideal partner for Pilgrim,” added exec producer and Pilgrim Media Group CEO Craig Piligian. “We’re thrilled to continue working with Khloé and FYI as we further our unique spin on prime-time talk.”

The original order for “Kocktails With Khloé” was eight episodes. Bringing the first season to a total of 23 episodes, the talker will run through June, continuing to air Wednesday nights at 10 p.m.

After drawing 347,000 viewers for its Jan. 20 premiere (and a network-record 496,000 in Live+3), “Kocktails With Khloe” has declined in subsequent weeks but continues to out-rate the network’s prime-time average (162,000 last week). Its second episode drew 216,000 same-day viewers, and last week’s third episode upticked to 238,000.

Today, FYI also announced more guests for the upcoming episodes of the show, including Tori Spelling, Ne-Yo, T-Pain, Sonja Morgan and King Bach.
