Paris Hilton is officially feeling herself! The heiress’ reality show ‘The World According to Paris’ premiered last week (June 1) on Oxygen and it looks like it was a complete FAIL!

The show drew in less than 400,000 viewers, not living up to expectations at all. That is just a shame compared to the ratings she and former BFF Nicole Ritchie used to pull on their reality show ‘The Simple Life.’ Paris refuses to take the blame so she blames the network instead, claiming that Oxygen ruined her premiere by switching the time slot for its airing.

“Paris is furious that the show didn’t premiere at the time it was supposed to,” an insider told “She worked her tail off doing promotion and publicity for the show and then because of a technical mistake, the show aired at a completely different time in a lot of markets.”

Although the time slot issue did happen, that still doesn’t explain why basically NOBODY watched the show in the markets where it did debut at the proper time.Truth is, nobody was probably checking for it in the first place.

According to an insider, “If the numbers remain less than the 400,000 that tuned in last week she could get pulled off the air.”

Paris better hope something miraculous happens or it’s bye-bye to ‘The World According to Paris’ just like her MTV reality show ‘My New BFF.’
