Season 15 of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” has hit an all-time ratings low.

According to Showbiz 411, the season finale of E!’s hit reality show plummeted 37 percent from the premiere, which raked in 1.3 million viewers August 5. Sunday’s finale brought in a mere 851,000 viewers, despite multiple unfolding storylines and two of the sisters welcoming babies during the season.

To make matters worse, the show finished last of all Sunday night shows at the 9:00 p.m. (EST) time slot.

The decline in ratings has been a sort of trend in recent weeks — two weeks ago the reality show brought in only 941,000 viewers. For comparison, the middle of last season brought in 1.44 million viewers, according to Forbes.

But not everyone’s upset about the decline.

“They’re a bunch of spoiled whiny brats who preach one relentlessly depressing message: that you can succeed in life by being completely and utterly devoid of any talent other than stripping naked and shameless self-promotion,” U.K. Daily Mail columnist Piers Morgan wrote in an op-ed Thursday. “And week after week on their unutterably tedious TV show they prove they don’t have a single intellectual brain cell between them.”
