TEEN Mom OG’s ratings have dropped to an all-time low as fans urge MTV to drop the “boring” show because it’s “time to move on.”
Viewers – or the lack of them – have stuck the boot in, blasting the show by saying “they just sit around and talk about nonsense.”

Criticism also revolved around the fact that the show features adults rather than “actual teen moms.”
Now in its eleventh year, the ninth season premiered on January 26 featuring original girls Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood as well as replacement girls Cheyenne Floyd and Mackenzie McKee.
Previously, the eighth season ended with the worst ratings the show had ever had at 692,000, according to the The Ashley.
But that dubious record has been overtaken by the latest season as ratings sank even lower than ever before.

After four episodes, figures have fallen into the 500,000 viewers territory.
This is compared to the season five premiere which aired on May 25, 2015 and had 1,538,000 viewers.
MTV would do well to take heed of what Redditors are saying about the show as they’ve been quick to fire away their opinions.
One user wrote: “It’s boring. Maci is doing an awful thing to Bentley and Amber should be fired.”

Another chimed in: “We need actual teen moms. The lives of teens and of adults are incredibly different. Let’s get some of the girls or all of the girls from season 6 of 16&prego on there and I’ll come back and watch.”
And Raeannclawson added: “It’s too boring now. I think their time is done.”
More viewers rushed to express their thoughts on the program.

One wrote: “It’s entertaining watching teens struggle through the drama of being new parents.
“It isn’t entertaining watching adults being adults. There is no substance to the show anymore. They just sit around and talk about nonsense for 3 minutes, then 8 minutes of commercials kick in.”
And another added: “Not surprising at all. It keeps going from worse to worser.”
Another one-time fan also gave their detailed analysis too.

They wrote: “I quit both shows about 3 seasons ago. I still keep up with some of the gossip on here but the shows have run its course.
“Only a few members of the original casts are left, they are all rich and inauthentic, the storylines are a snoozfest. Time to move on.”
The current season is playing out many storylines – everything from Maci and her ex Ryan Edwards’ parents not getting along to Cheyenne’s learning she is pregnant with her second child.
The pilot episode of Teen Mom – which aired in December 2009 – premiered with 2.1 million viewers.
By the end of the first season, ratings were at 3.6 million viewers.
And by the Season 2 finale – which aired in October 2010 – the show had 5.6 million viewers.
