‘The Hills’ Sees Declining Ratings

While the MTV reality series, The Hills, remains the highest-rated cable show in the channel’s target audience as well as the number one rated program in its time slot in that demo, its ratings are clearly slipping from last year’s numbers.

It seems the addition of feisty castmate, Kristin Cavallari, wasn’t enough for this season’s premiere to maintain the kind of numbers brought in by last year’s premiere. It’s being reported that viewership was down by 30 percent compared to the prior season.

Wonder who Audrina Patridge can blame for robbing her of viewers?
