Let's start by highlighting that interestingly ever since Jenelle Evans left the show it seems as though MTV started having viewership problems and ratings have dropped nearly half since 2019!
While the show's ratings are low, Jenelle ranks at least 1 million every time a video is posted to her Instagram! Isn't that something!
According to Showbuzz Daily, the June 2 season finale of ‘Teen Mom ’ accumulated a low rating of 692,000 viewers.
This rating was shockingly low, the second-lowest of the season, and the lowest ratings were for the episode that aired a week before on May 26, which garnered only 644,000 viewers!
According to The Ashley, the Season 8B premiere episode aired on March 17 had 859,000 viewers.
As the season continued airing, however, the ratings fell considerably. In total, only three episodes from Season 8B had over 800,000 viewers, and by May 26, those numbers had dropped down into the 600,000’s.
Where‘ Teen Mom ’ was to where it is now are poles apart. ‘Teen Mom OG’ Season 8A premiere (aired Monday, June 10, 2019) racked in 990,000 viewers In its MTV prime.
The Season 5A premiere, (aired on May 25, 2015) had 1,538,000 viewers!
If we date back to the original ‘Teen Mom', the ratings were higher still. The pilot episode that aired in December 2009 premiered with 2.1 million viewers. By the end of Season 1, ratings were at a soaring 3.6 million viewers. By the Season 2 finale which aired in October 2010, the show had a whopping 5.6 million viewers!
Could the massive decline in ratings be due to the show’s age? (You better believe it,‘Teen Mom’ has been on the air for over 10 years!) This season in particular may have had an impact due to MTV’s decision to keep Amber on the show, despite her 2019 domestic battery arrest and what came after!
Ashley released the news in September that Viacom had chosen not to fire Amber, and apparently to this day several loyal fans are still displeased with the decision.
Some fans took to social media to let MTV know that they are not watching this season, due to the fact that Amber is still on the show and Jenelle isn't many called MTV's decision unfair.
Below are the official ratings for ‘Teen Mom ’ Season 8B:
June 2, 2020 (Season Finale): 692,000
