The Hills Ratings Down 30%

The Hills just isn’t the same without Lauren Conrad. They’ve replaced her with the bitchy Kristin Cavallari, but that didn’t do anything for the show’s ratings.

According to Broadcasting & Cable, Tuesday’s premiere only brought in 2.1 million viewers. That’s 30% down from the 3 million who tuned in last season for the premiere in April.

And the season before that, 3.5 million watched the August 2008 premiere. Lauren Conrad must be getting a kick out of this! MTV isn’t get down about the news, however, saying that The Hills is the most-watched show in its time slot for the age 12 to 34 age demographic.

On the flip side, Whitney Port can breathe a breath of fresh air, knowing ratings are up 43% for her show The City, which is in its second season.

Guess the bitch doesn’t always get what she wants!
