Start Spreading the News: 'Kourtney & Kim Take New York'

Those queens of reality TV, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, have already taken L.A. and Miami, so it's only natural that their next stop would be New York. Officially, their reason for spending the last several months in the Big Apple was to open a Manhattan branch of their clothing boutique, Dash. But Kourtney & Kim Take New York (E!, Sundays, 10 p.m. ET) is really about chronicling Kim's dating life and Kourtney's battles with her hot-tempered baby daddy, Scott Disick.

Of course, the Dash opening does provide reasons for famous faces to cameo, such as Kanye West. "You're opening in two weeks?" he asks incredulously in this promo clip. This, of course, is meant to ratchet up the tension: Will they be ready?!

Kourtney's son, Mason, will be notably absent from the show. Depending on which website you read, that decision was either a mutual one between Kourtney and Disick (to protect Mason), or the result of a botched financial negotiation between Disick and E!. (Us Weekly reported that Disick asked for $5,000 per episode to show Mason on camera, and E! turned him down.) Their younger sister Khloe isn't on this show, either; she wanted to spend more time with her new husband, Lamar Odom (and they're getting a spinoff show of their own).

Kim's current boyfriend, New Jersey Nets star Kris Humphries, does not appear in the promo clip, either, but other guys do. Anyone interested in living Kim's love life vicariously will no doubt enjoy the season, which promises at least a few romantic entanglements!

Is this show worth watching? Both women are really only famous for being famous. But if silly reality TV shows are your particular guilty pleasure (and what's life without at least one guilty pleasure?), this show is harmless fun. And it is important to know who the Kardashians are -- if only to be able to answer pop culture trivia questions about them at your next game night party.
