FYI has greenlit 15 additional one-hour episodes of primetime talk series “Kocktails with Khloé” – hosted and executive produced by media personality, best-selling author and entrepreneur Khloé Kardashian – nearly tripling its original order of eight episodes. The series is produced for FYI by Pilgrim Media Group.
The announcement, made by FYI’s Senior Vice President of Programming and Development, Gena McCarthy, follows the show’s January 20 debut as the highest rated series premiere in network history across key demos, with episode two and three leading FYI to its highest ranked digital viewing days on record. “Kocktails with Khloé” also delivered triple-digit growth across all social platforms for FYI.
The additional 15 episodes of “Kocktails with Khloé” will air weekly, immediately following the current eight episodes, and will run through June. The series airs Wednesday nights at 10pm ET/PT.
Said McCarthy, “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.”
Added Executive Producer and Pilgrim Media Group CEO Craig Piligian, “Khloé’s creativity, wit and work ethic make her a perfect host and an ideal partner for Pilgrim. We’re thrilled to continue working with Khloé and FYI as we further our unique spin on primetime talk.”
