The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reports that the second season of the MTV show garnered some of the lowest ratings it has ever seen.
An article posted by the website pointed to Show Buzz Daily numbers that show the season two premiere only brought in 330,000 viewers and finished in the No. 37 spot for the top 150 Cable telecasts.
Teen Mom Shade Room posted the article to its Instagram page where fans sounded off on the new season, many saying it should be canceled altogether.
One person wrote: “It’s boring, they forget that the reason they started doing teen mom 2 then 3, then y&p, is because they needed younger moms to keep it entertaining.
“We needed young couples who were still struggling to figure out their relationship and how to be parents or co-parents, not 30-year-old women who are married, own houses and businesses, have several kids now etc. It’s dull.”
Another wrote: “It’s probably because these grown women with children still act like high school mean girls and pretend for the cameras.”
“Because it’s boring! Same thing every week. They need to start fresh like they did the 16 and pregnant a few years ago then have new ones every season and not keep them for 10 years,” wrote another viewer.
“Great they can cancel this now,” wrote another person.
Another predicted: “And I think a lot of people will stop watching after Bri and Ashley leave.”
The disappointment in the new season comes after a trailer promised high drama after Ashley Jones spit on Amber Portwood in a nasty brawl.
During a new season trailer released on the official Teen Mom Instagram, long-timer Amber, 32, was caught in the crossfire of Ashley’s fight with Briana.
In the jarring scene, Ashley spits across the room at her enemy, leaving Amber to be hit with extra particles.
The mother of two was stunned by the behavior, later saying in a confessional: “Watching Ashley spit on Briana was f**king disgusting and weird.”
The Teen Mom cast mates were involved in a wild physical altercation while filming the new season of Family Reunion.
A separate preview clip for Family Reunion season two was released in December, as the reality stars headed on a retreat to wrap up the year.
Tensions ran hot as the girls’ mothers were invited along for an energy-filled getaway, complete with cabin parties, bungee jumping and whitewater rafting.
In one shocking scene from the teaser, Ashley Jones, 25, screamed “f**k you!” to her nemesis Briana, 28, from across the room.
The comment resulted in the Florida native lunging into the air to attack her younger co-star, as security and production jumped to hold her back.
The wild moment left both cast and crew in shock as the nasty feud continues between the two Teen Moms.
The show, which premiered its first season last January, starred Teen Mom cast members Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Cheyenne Floyd, Leah Messer, Briana DeJesus, Jade Cline, Ashley Jones and Farrah Abraham.
NO MORE FARRAH
Farrah, 30, had slammed the network and vowed never to return to the franchise.
The Teen Mom OG alum took to her Instagram Story to share a lengthy statement, writing: “Teen Mom will forever show me how society takes advantage of teen moms, single moms.”
She then slammed the show’s producers for making “life choices for grown a** women against their will” and argued their actions are “against the law.”
Farrah continued: “Life is not an edit- that is abuse I will not normalize.”
She added: “When I speak- I speak to production and not to the teen moms on this show who will say anything and mistreat anyone to keep a failed show going.”
The former Teen Mom star then called out her costars – specifically Maci – and claimed they don’t “know what’s going on” behind the scenes of the show.
Farrah’s rant continued as she ripped the show as “pathetic,” adding that she has done therapy on her own to better improve herself.
The mother of one concluded: “Our world deserves far more credible TV shows that do not put women in vulnerable situations.”
