The Kardashians' Hulu show PANNED by TV critics as 'listless' and a 'disappointment' to fans in scathing new reviews
The new Kardashians show received major shade from TV critics who called it boring and less entertaining than the original.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alums have heavily promoted their new series ahead of its April 14 debut.
But despite the excitement surrounding the show's premiere, TV critics have aired their grievances about the new program after viewing the first two episodes in full.
In a scathing take, Variety complained that The Kardashians is "obsessed with the past in a way that holds this series back."
The report when on to say that the new show has "little" new to say about the lives that have been broadcast over the better half of three decades.
The magazine claimed that Kim Kardashian's appearance was more "muted" than expected, and viewers could sense a feeling of "panic" over trying to build interest without revealing too much.

Variety asserted that the reality star could be "outgrowing" the genre itself, as she has breached the point of mindless TV into full on stardom.
In a separate take, The Hollywood Reporter slammed The Kardashians as a "disappointment", with a lack of "shock value" as the family's international brand has been carefully formulated.
The review chastised the first two episodes as an "experiment in marketing, selling viewers an unattainable aesthetic and lifestyle," as they chose to once again "display their dizzying amounts of wealth."
The outlet claimed that the new series "strips away any bits of fun," that KUWTK might've had, "leaving only the rigid ethos of a family that has mastered being famous."

The Reporter ripped the show as "aggressively" boring saying nothing could rid The Kardashians of it's overwhelming sense of "listlessness."
With their retired E! program focusing on their rise to fame, critics claimed the new watched them struggle to balance their lives as mothers alongside their capitalist work ethos.
Despite the controversy surround the premiere of the Hulu original, the family itself has gone above and beyond to promote their new venture.
However, some interviews have left fans unpleasantly shocked, namely after Kim's infamous rant claiming that "nobody wants to work" anymore.
Now, Kourtney has taken the center stage after appearing on Good Morning America on Wednesday wearing nothing but a black robe.
The mother of three donned just the terrycloth wrap while joining the show alongside her sister Kim via Zoom.
The Poosh founder ditched her usual glamorous look for a much more casual vibe for the promotional interview.
She appeared to go makeup free and wore her short dark hair in a simple, tousled 'do.
Kim, meanwhile, looked seriously dressed-up in a skintight black bodysuit, sleek hair and glam makeup.
While Kourtney seemed happy with her look, her critics slammed her dressed-down appearance on Twitter.
One wrote: "Kourtney wore robe for her GMA interview, she really doesn’t care."
