The outlet revealed that in the weeks that followed the firing episode, which garnered 1,135,000 viewers, the numbers dropped from 1,097,000 on March 19 to 1,044,000 on March 26. Then, on April 2, viewership dipped to just 992,000 before increasing to 1,250,000 the following week for the show’s season seven finale.
“It’s no surprise that the Teen Mom ratings went down since I’ve left,” Farrah said during an interview with Radar Online. “I know that other families rely on this show for income and I hope it continues even if it’s now run its course.”
“MTV has really ruined what could be an amazing show by bullying, ruining natural story lines, shaming, and interfering in the real lives of these parents and children,” she explained.
Following her exit from Teen Mom OG last month, Farrah filed a $5 million lawsuit against MTV, claiming the network and its staff sex shamed her and degraded her for doing porn. She’s also accused the network of providing an unsafe environment for her nine-year-old daughter Sophia.
“I’m happy I separated myself,” Farrah added. “I hope to produce and develop award-winning shows as my 10 years of experience has me confident of what our future needs. I am quality, authentic, real and I will only create shows, films and digital content that delivers that.”
In the months since Farrah’s firing was confirmed, rumors have been swirling in regard to the possibility of Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee serving as Farrah’s replacement on future seasons of Teen Mom OG.
