Teen Mom OG premiered earlier this week with new stars Bristol Palin and Cheyenne Floyd. But the newbies failed to bring in ratings compared to axed star Farrah Abraham’s numbers. In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com Abraham slammed the series amid the ratings slump.

For last season’s premiere on November 27, 2017, which featured Abraham, 1,319,00 viewers tuned in. The series ended strong with 1,098,000 for the season finale.
Abraham, 27, was fired from the series in the middle of last season because of her work with the adult film industry and treatment of producers. Palin and Floyd were brought on to replace her. She exclusively told Radar that she “isn’t surprised” by the drop in ratings.
“The producers were mad my brand grew larger than the show,” she slammed.
She then took aim at Palin and Floyd, firing, “The two Teen Mom groupies that were brought on still can’t bring better quality than I have. I did it all on my own at 16. They’re coming in 10 years later. Having their kids older isn’t much of a struggle, as well some couples purposely having children to be on Teen Mom.”
She continued that she won’t be watching Teen Mom this season and that she is thankful to have "left on top.”
“MTV needs to call me to make better TV,” she said. “Asking for real isn’t asking for much so MTV can call me for another show. Oh wait, they already have!”
Abraham is reportedly appearing on the upcoming season of Ex on The Beach with former boyfriend Simon Saran.
