The Hills Sucks - Ratings Prove It

| Filed under: MTVLauren ConradReality TV

As we mentioned last month, The Hills has been picked up for a 5th season of "reality" on MTV.

But after looking at the ratings from the season four finale of the show last week, we wonder if MTV execs made the right decision!

The scripted improv show aired its season finale on December 22nd. But, unfortunately, it didn't bring in the numbers the network suits were expecting/hoping.

In fact, they saw a big drop from the previous season closer!

This past season finale averaged just about 2.6 million viewers. That's down from the 3.8 million that tuned in for the season three finale which aired back in May.

And, the show's season four total-viewer's average was down 25% from the last season average.

What will Lauren Conrad do with herself after the show is over?

Next season seems like it will definitely be the last of The Hills as we know it - before Speidi get their own spinoff!

    THE HILLS SUCK, REALLY??? IT TOOK FIVE FUCKING SEASON TO FIGURE THAT OUT! RETARDS!



  2. 2

    Who the fuck watches this show? A bunch of queers and teenagers..that's who. Double fist em BBD!



  3. 3

    It sucks, you blow, what's new?



  4. 4

    THAT IS A VERY UGLY PICTURE.



  5. 5

    Spencer and Heidi are what make the show "interesting" but they're like, the only characters without their own show. Shit, even boring Whitney got one. I'm sure Lo will get a show before they do.



  6. 6

    Why would those two get a spinoff? Unless they are going to be doing a made for TV remake of "Star 80" with her as an imitation Dorothy Straten and him as the creepy loser boyfriend who murders her because of her fame.



  7. 7

    That lipstick is badddd.



  8. 8

    I watched it online only so that I could fast forward through Heidi and Spencer. I honestly believe everyone is tired of them and they are the reason the show is bombing. Tell Spencer to shave his stupid beard and Heidi to stop getting fake parts. I miss the old Heidi!!!! Bring her back and I guarantee the ratings will go up!



  9. 9

    That show is still on????? Good lord…….. puke



  10. 10

    Forget the Hills, I'm over it. I did like The CIty last night though.



  14. 14

    I have to admit I like the show! But, it was much better the first couple seasons.



  15. 15

    We can only hope Speidi does NOT get their own show. We already see & hear too much about them. Just imagine, yikes!!!!!

  17. 17

    Lauren will be fine, she has other things going for herself. It's those assholes Heidi and Spencer that should be worried. I can't believe they're hosting a wedding special THEY ARE NOT MARRIED!! Denial is a beautiful thing



  18. 18

    Re: SuzyP – REALLY? Was it good ? I'm SOOOO waiting for Bromance to come on!!!!!!!



  19. 19

    Hey Perez…did you ever think that people didn't tune into the finale because it was centered around SPEIDI? That's what I think. It was all about their "wedding" aftermath & attempt to make it legal. Half the world hates Speidi so why would people want to watch an episode focusing on them?

    Re: harrybalsacRe: _Alice_ – You two should be in stand up comedy. LMFAO

    Re: Big Black Dick – Maybe you can cover your fist with a nice fuzzy sock..now that would be nice!!



  25. 25

    Re: Mistress – LOL….I just can't believe people actually watch that crap. It's fake and the people on it are horrible human beings. I don't get it. But then again, I'm not 12 or a gay boy. So whatever…..

    Speidi spinoff? About WHAT??? There is nothing they could possibly do to "entertain me". I refuse to watch anything they do. And BTW, that's an AWFUL pic of LC up there!



  27. 27

    I didn't need 5 seasons or ratings to tell me that show sucks.



  28. 28

    maybe they got such low ratings because no one wanted to watch the speidi wedding. they are the most obnoxious people on the planet. i love the hills but i cannot watch spencer and heidi.

    Re: LettyB WISHES YOU A HAPPY NEW YEAR! – i picture baby troll modeling all the vintage s.h'o.e's. P peddles here ever since you mentioned you have a pair of those s'h.o'e. .b'o'o.t's………….don't worry….i never imagine you in those hideous peacock feather tights…….for some reason i see JohnnyCakes in them
    .
    .
    p.s. again……what is with the footwear censorship?



  30. 30

    Don't worry, even if The Hills gets canceled MTV will make sure they put out more shitty shows. By the way, doesn't the M in MTV stand for Music? I can't remember the last time I watched a music video on MTV….



  31. 31

    Gee, you think it had anything to do with the fact it was 3 days before Christmas ya dumb fuck?



  32. 32

    I'm shocked it's lasted as long as it has. Enough of the self absorbed, rich brat crowd. Also, what a horrible picture of Lauren Conrad. She looks about 50.



  33. 33

    poor lauren her life sucks more than mine.



  34. 34

    lol who in the hell would watch a Speidi spinoff? I think I'd rather watch a Lo spinoff over that… and that isn't saying much. The Hills is tired, it needs to just go.



  35. 35

    She totally looks like Joan Rivers in this photo!



  36. 36

    This show sucks, just like every vapid cunt who's on it.



  37. 37

    With the real life attention these people are getting it's becoming more and more obvious to people that the life portrayed on the show and the real lives they are living are not the same at all. Why hasn't there been any mention of Lauren's clothing line on the show? How is it that on the show, Speidi can be broken up, but we see them every other day in the tabloids "happy and smiling together". ??? People ARE interested in watching the characters' go about their life, but they want to see what's really going on… not this cheesy scripted bullshit.



  38. 38

    speidi spin off?…LMAO…only the people they pay off and "friends" like Perez will be watching….i hope MTV does give them a spin off so we can see Perez work hard trying to create drama to give them ratings and it will still FLOP!…..p.s. The City is off to a really good start!…go whitney



  39. 39

    Perez, as much shit as you talk about The Hills I BET you were one of those 2.6 million watching



  40. 40

    PLEASE DONT' GIVE SPEIDI THIER OWN FUCKING SHOW!!!! JESUS CHRIST THEY SUCK AND THE HILLS SUCKS ASS!! NO TALENT THERE,MTV. GET BACK TO WHAT MADE YOUR STATION….VIDEOS!!!!!



  41. 41

    I liked The City too. I always thought that Whitney was the only one with more than 2 brain cells.



  42. 42

    let's bring back Jason. Have him tempt lauren away from that wannabe actor. and i was thinking of killing off audrina and having justin bobby headed for priesthood only to be seduced by the newly swinger couple Spiedi. and then in the end have justin, heidi, and spencer live as a monogamous threesome while lauren is left at the alter by jason then runs into dennis rodman who decides to have another quickie elopement with her in vegas. until brody jumps in and confesses his love for lauren. she'll think too long on it and end up alone with no one but lo and the dog for lovin. the end. =)



  43. 43

    I would watch the Hills. Because I have no life. But unfortunately I can't afford cable. So, maybe it's the economy.



  44. 44

    well i love the hills, but anyone who dont live in america cant watch it online anymore and it takes ages to get here and you have to have a satelite tv to watch it so i rekon thats caused a bit of a drop you used to be able to watch it online.



  45. 45

    Show is lame…no one watches it anymore.



  46. 46

    I'm not surprised at all… this show sucks major balls!

    I can't wait to see this shit get yanked off the air!!



  47. 47

    I agree MTV needs to stop giving these losers shows and actually play music again!



  48. 48

    That lipstick looks awful–
    What will she do with herself? Probably live out her spoiled existance in bliss.

    I actually stopped watching the Hills b/c I got sick of the Speidi storyline. I hope they don't get a spin-off.



  50. 50

    I've said The Hills suck since the start. I can't believe people actually watch this crap and that it's been on so long. Good riddance!



  51. 51

    how old is she? isn't she supposed to be under 30? I think she's even younger than me. How the heck does she have so many lines under her eyes being so young. while i know everything is fake on the hills I'm starting to suspect lauren is really closer to 40 than 30. seriously!



  52. 52

    my gawd she's looks so freakin old in this picture, big lines under her eyes and the hair that looks like she has white hair, yuuuuuurck



  53. 53

    She looks like Mommy Dearest! Ewww



  54. 54

    I don't know whether it's the makeup or the hair color/style combination, but she looks like she's in her late 30s. Yikes!



  55. 55

    The ratings are going down BECAUSE of Speidi!! The show has been focusing too much on them and no one likes them. The finale was mostly about their FAKE wedding and no one cares!!!!



  56. 56

    this photo of Lauren Conrad offends me



  57. 57

    Man, she looks old. Eat a sandwich and take off all that make-up!!



  58. 58

    what an ugly skank…



  59. 59

    YOUR SO FUCKING ANNOYING PEREZ,THINKING YOUR SO SMART AND HAVE ALL THE STATS AND FIGURES.YOU PULL THIS SHIT OUT OF YOUR ARSE AND EXPECT SMART PEOPLE TO BELIEVE YOU.YOU DO IT WHEN IT SUITS.LIKE ANISTIN VS PITT MOVIES ECT….BTW ANISTONS BLEW PITTS OUT OF THE WATER DESPITE WHAT YOU TRIED TO DO AND WITH ALL THE LIES YOU TOLD.ANYWAY THOSE STATS YOU ARE TRYING TO MAKE US BELIEVE ARE LIES AND EVEN IF THEY WERE IN ANYWAY TRUE IT DOESNT INCLUDE DVR AND TIVO WHICH IS WHAT MOST PEOPLE USE THESE DAYS.SO IF YOU WERE ANY GOOD AT YOUR SHIT YOUD TAKE IT ALL INTO ACCOUNT OR JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP.I DONT MIND DISAGREEING WITH YOU BUT I HATE LIARS.



  60. 60

    lauren will be fine it is plain and clear people do not want to watch anymore because WE REFUSE TO PAY HEIDI AND SPENCERS PAYCHECK, PEOPLE HAVE COME TO REALIZE THAT THESE TWO ONLY CARE FOR THEMSELVES AND HOW DAMN GREEDY THEY ARE AND ALL THE BULLSHIT THEY PULLED, REMEMBER THE PEOPLE WATCHING ARE BLUE COLLAR HARD WORKING PEOPLE AND WHEN THESE TWO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WHAT THEY HAVE IT'S THIS SIMPLE IT'S OVER NO ONE WANTS TO SUPPORT THESE TWO FOR ANYTHING AND MTV ALLOWED ALL THIS BULLSHIT TO AIR, THIS WORLD IS IN TROUBLE AND THE LAST THING WE NEED TO SEE IS THESE TWO VERY GREEDY PEOPLE SUCKING UP MILLIONS AND LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK, WELL WE DO NOT FEEL IT IS FUNNY, WHY DO YOU THINK THEY HAD THEM OUT THERE HELPING TO FEED CHRISTMAS MEALS, NOT BECAUSE THEY CARE ABOUT STRANGERS BUT THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE THEMSELVES LOOK GOOD. BUT IT IS TO LATE, ONCE YOU TREAT YOUR OWN FAMILY LIKE SHIT ALL OVER TV AND IT IS NOT ACT, NO ONE WILL EVER BELIEVE THEY WILL CARE ABOUT HELPING STRANGERS, JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU THAT THEY WILL DO WHAT EVER IT TAKES TO KEEP MAKING THE ALL MIGHTY BUCK, BUT THEY HAVE SHIT LEFT FOR SUPPORT AND I FOR ONE AM VERY HAPPY ABOUT IT, IT IS TO BAD IT TOOK THIS LONG BUT IT IS HAPPENING AND THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO MY BLUE COLLAR FRIENDS LETS HOPE HOLLYWOOD WILL GIVE US A CHANCE TO MAKE MILLIONS, AT LEAST WE WOULD NEVER TAKE ANY OF IT FOR GRANTED.

    5 seasons too long. The fact that anyone watches this POS is amazing. I guess some people finally grew a brain and realized they were watching a half hour talentless, worthless douchebag-fest on TV. Does us all a favor MTV - go the fuck away and come back when you start playing MUSIC again!!!



  63. 63

    She looks very old in that photo. Older than she should be. Like 35. But, being that said, I'm still addicted.

    You can only watch so much of this LC with her perpetual state of angst. She always has to control everyone's life or else she cuts them off. Honey, spend some of those bucks on therapy and please get an education. Seriously, MTV…time to move on from this gang of "aging" losers…..move them over to VH1.



  65. 65

    That Lauren looks at least 35! Stay out of the sun, ladies, or you'll look like this in your twenties and like that horrible Donatello woman in your 50's!



  66. 66

    Somebody's sucking some good producer dick ;)



  67. 67

    Correction…network-head dick ;)



  68. 68

    ewwwwwwww LOOK AT HER FACE???

    gross. Hard livin' - obviously…
