If not in the news then be on the news, you know? Next week the television’s first family, the Kardashians, are taking their first swing at primetime, Bruce Jenner, Kris Jenner, Khloe, Kourtney and of course Kim each having a turn as Hoda Kotb‘s Today show co-host. Whether or not they should be being no matter, the Kardashians can really do anything!
The Wrap reports that, one at a time, the Kardashian clan will take over the fourth hour of Today next week. Khloe, the youngest, will kick things off on Monday, followed by her step-dad and Rick Perry‘s favorite Kardashian, Bruce, on Tuesday. Kris will “handle Hump Day duties,” Kourtney takes Thursday. Kim will bring us into the weekend, actually reporting on herself on Friday when she offers a preview of Sunday’s E! special, Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event.
As The Deadline points out, this special week has been made possible by the recent NBC Universal/Comcast merger. The Kardashian’s home station, E!, and Today‘s NBC are related now, and it only makes sense that they stretch their influence across as many properties as possible. Right?
