Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Despite a "one-time shot in the arm" from the debut of baby North West, Kris Jenner's talk show has been canceled by Fox.

Jenner's six-week trial run hosting "Kris" will be just that, a source close to the production told Radar.

"Kris did get a ratings bump for her last show when Kanye West revealed the first baby pic of daughter, North West, with Kim [Kardashian], but that was a one time shot in the arm and it wouldn’t be indicative of what the ratings trend would be.”

“There is no chance the talk show is going to get a green light from FOX. The ratings were averaging an abysmal 0.8 and advertisers were less than enthusiastic about it.”

Fox's panel-format talk show "The Real," which also launched its test run on July 15, is “expected to be picked up” after it outperformed "Kris" in key female demographics.

Fox is reportedly waiting to make the announcement out of respect for the current drama swirling around Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom, who is reportedly dealing with drug abuse.
