Khloe Kardashian's new career as a talk show host has been given a huge boost after bosses at America's FYI network ordered another 15 episodes of the series.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star launched Kocktails with Khloe on 20 January, and the premiere episode became the fledgling channel's highest-rated show ever.

The series' popularity has also given FYI's profile a huge boost on social media, and now Khloe, who recently welcomed interviewees like Snoop Dogg, Sean 'Diddy' Combs, and her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, is set to continue drinking and gossiping with guests until June.

"Khloe and her iconic brand have struck a chord with FYI viewers, who have been extremely interactive with the show on social media," FYI executive Gena McCarthy says in a statement.

"Her ability to draw upscale millennial viewers across all our platforms in record numbers is a game changer for FYI."

The show is set up in the style of a dinner party, with guests invited to join Khloe in the kitchen, dining room, and lounge, where they can sip on speciality cocktails and snack on food served up by chef Sharone Hakman.

Khloe has also recruited her famous family members and friends to participate in a series of games for the show, and she previously admitted she wanted the alcohol to help loosen their tongues.

"A lot of the games are interactive and you have to move," she explained. "Some are standard, like Truth or Dare. Others are games my sisters and I tweaked at my cocktail parties at home. A lot are personal. (Questions) tend to be a little more sexual, fun and flirty. When someone has a glass of champagne, their guard is a little down. It makes it more fun."
