No Kanye West, No Ray J, Kim Kardashian Shines In Drop Dead Diva Fourth Season

Drop Dead Diva had a ratings problem until Kim Kardashian happened to it

By DiMarkco Chandler

For some of you TV junkies that have not watched “Drop Dead Diva,” I can tell you that you’re missing a good ensemble cast and an equally entertaining comedy script about an aspiring model (Deborah “Deb”) who dies in a car crash. As she enters heaven, the gatekeeper informs her that she has arrived broke. In other words, she has neither good deeds nor any bad deeds to be measured by. Finding such news unacceptable, she pushes to return to her former body so she can return to her earthly life. By pushing a key on a computer that she should not have pressed, she gets a measure of her wish fulfilled. She is brought back to earth; however, the body she receives is not her original Drop Dead package as she is placed in the body of a plus size brilliant lawyer named Jane Bingum.

In its first year, the show was well received, but after its third year, ratings began to fall off. Access Atlanta reports that “creator, Josh Berman said he heard through the grapevine that Khloe Kardashian was a fan of the show. So the show called Kim’s representative directly and it turned she knew about the show too. ‘I pitched the concept of her character,’ Berman said. ‘She was intrigued. She liked the spirit of the show. So she flew in for three episodes.’”

I usually don’t have anything good to say about Kardashian, however, she is a natural for the role of a relationship guru. I guess I’ll have to start giving her credit for something. But with that said, Kim Kardashion might just be the medicine that the doctor ordered to put “Drop Dead Diva” up in the ratings.

Television is sure enamored with her. This Sunday, she will appear on three different channels. Of course, she will appear in her regular reality gig, but she will not only make her debut on “Drop Dead Diva” but she will also be featured in Ashton Kutcher’s return on Punk’d.

Kardashian is sure racking in the dollars. Some might suggest that she is fleecing the networks and her fans in exchange for her God-given beauty: a sort of Beauty and the Fleece. While I would normally agree with such an analogy, I’m going to have to pass this time. Her efforts on “Drop Dead Diva” have forced me to rethink how I feel about the Kardashian.

    Really? You should take another look. Fans of Drop Dead Diva, myself included, did not want to watch DDD because Kim was on. She’s not a good actor. She is merely a personality. OK for a guest shot, but not a regular. The cast has good, solid, talented actors, especially Brooke Elliot, Margaret Cho, Ben Feldman (so sorry to see him go, but watching him on Mad Men), etc. Hope KK won’t be a regular because I will have to stop watching. It is just too painful to watch bad acting.

      Rachel, then don’t watch it, you and the other idiots that choose not to watch because of Kim were never fans and for every 1 person like you, she will bring at least 50 of her fans with her to the network to watch it, so have a big seat and get a life. Kim is out here working and contributing to society, paying her taxes and employing many people, what is your contribution other than sitting on a blog criticizing someone that you don’t know. You people are unbelievable. If only you were so passionate about real issues that are going on right in your own community. You would probably walk ove a homeless person or someone that is down on their luck due to this economy but you are ready to throw arrows at someone who hasn’t done anyting to you. You judgemental people will have to face a higher power one day and it won’t be pretty. The ratings will prove my point. You don’t have to watch.
