'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' has been on the air on E! for 13 years now and we've seen both the Kardashians and Jenners grow up in different aspects of their lives. Season 18 premieres on March 26 and this is a bit different this time as it airs on a Thursday and not the usual Sunday night slot time. This may be a ratings move but others on social media believe that it simply can't compete with TLC's '90 Day Fiancé.'

90 Day Fiancé has been on the air since 2014 and has also become one of the most popular reality television shows among all types of audiences. The plot is that Americans try to bring their lovers from overseas on K-1 visas in order to marry them. We have seen different series of the show such as 'Before The 90 Days' and 'Happily Ever After.' The latest Before The 90 Days premiered two weeks ago and is already receiving a lot of buzz after two episodes.

Fans seem to believe KUWTK continues to bring the same content as they have other reality shows to tune in to. Moving it to Thursday nights may not be the answer but this is a test that we will see if it works on March 26. Ratings have slightly been down as fans believe that even the Kardashians and Jenners on the show haven't been that enthusiastic about the show themselves. There isn't a lot of reality TV on Thursdays at the moment so they may have a chance at bouncing back.

This past week, Kim Kardashian attended Kanye West's Yeezy Season 8 runway show in Paris as part of Paris Fashion Week. The show ended up being headlined by their daughter North, who sung her own remix to ZaZa's hit single "What I Do?" ZaZa's family has since came out saying they appreciate Kardashian, West, and North liking the song but the attention should be on the original version and not the remix. What I Do has already become one of the most popular choices among children and ZaZa even performed it at NBA games.

Kardashian also faced criticism while in Paris for posting photos of her wearing braids as she was accused of cultural appropriation again. North's performance and this backlash that has confronted Kardashian may be possible headlines to add to KUWTK. This would definitely add more anticipation as controversy always sells. 90 Day Fiancé is the talk of social media every Sunday so KUWTK will have to bring more unique ideas and story lines for sure to become a fan-favorite on television again.
