Some are even taking it so far as to threaten a boycott in order to inspire MTV to liven up the storylines of their favorite characters.
Keep reading to find out why they’re upset, and see if you agree!
Teen Mom fans are not happy with the franchise right now, and they want their opinions heard! Some are threatening a boycott of the show. Will MTV listen?
We previously reported that the ratings for Teen Mom OG have been steadily dropping, and this season they might be getting too low for MTV. The network has tried to revamp the series multiple times, by adding Bristol Palin, Cheyenne Floyd, and Jade Cline, but that might not have been enough to save the reality show.
The outlet reported that after Bristol left, the ratings continued to go down. The season premiere only brought in 990,000 viewers, and by the end of the month of June their viewers dropped to just 849,000. By mid-July, only 679,000 people were watching the show.
The last season finale that aired featuring Farrah had ratings of 1,098,000.
Farrah told Radar that the show “should be cancelled,” and said “No one is believing the fake story lines.”
“These other parents are super fans of the OG girls and have been fans, planned pregnancy is not what Teen Mom OG was about,” she said. “And now it’s okay to keep planning pregnancies to get on TV? Sad mainly for the children.”
And Farrah may have a valid point…Teen Mom fans are bored!
A user on reddit started a thread titled, “So, when is MTV going to realize that we don’t want to watch this snooze fest anymore? Bring in new drama pllllzzzz.” Commenters had a lot to say in agreement with that statement.
“This is why I actually really like young and pregnant, because at least a couple of them are actual teens going through actual struggles, not rich people going through rich people struggles. They’re adults with kids now, nothing really special about them,” wrote one user.
