Fan favorite Chelsea, 29, quit Teen Mom 2 in November with her final episode airing in December 2020. 

The Sun can exclusively reveal ratings have plummeted ever since Chelsea left the MTV series. 

The May 4 premiere brought in just 663,000 viewers, according to Showbuzz Daily.

Ratings went down to the lowest of all time for the May 11 episode, as only 507,000 tuned in. 

The September 1, 2020 premiere for part one of Season 10 had 806,000 viewers. 

The September 8, 2020 episode dropped down to 693,000 viewers. 

The December 29, 2020 season finale had 600,000 people watching. 

The drop in ratings comes after Teen Mom 2’s cast shakeup. 

Jenelle Evans was fired from the show in 2019 after her husband, David Eason, admitted to shooting and killing the family’s dog. 

She was replaced by Jade, who was on spinoff Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. 

Then in November 2020, Chelsea, who shares daughter Aubree, 11, with ex Adam Lind, and Watson, 4, Layne, 2, and Walker, 3 months, with husband Cole Deboer, revealed she is leaving the show. 

She wrote on Instagram: “MTV’s Teen Mom 2 has been a big part of my life for almost 11 years. After much thought and discussion with my family and friends, Cole and I have decided that this season will be our last. 

“We are forever thankful to MTV and our crew, who are like family to us. We’re parting on the best of terms and will stay in touch long after this. We’re proud to have been able to share our story and are so grateful to the fans who have followed our journey from the beginning.  

“Our next chapter in life will focus on developing our brand and taking things to the next level with new endeavors and expanding family businesses. Please tune into our last moments on the show and continue to follow along our journey on social media.”

She ended the statement: "We are so excited for this next phase of our lives and hope you all will be a part of it in some way!”

Young & Pregnant’s Ashley was chosen to replace her. 

But the cast members of Teen Mom 2 aren’t the only ones struggling, as Teen Mom OG has also experienced low ratings. 

The Season 9 premiere on January 26 kicked off with 687,000 viewers.

The finale brought in just 567,000 people. 

Despite the low ratings, Teen Mom OG has been picked up for season 9B, according to The Ashley's Reality Roundup.

TMOG features Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell, Cheyenne Floyd and Mackenzie McKee. 

The Sun exclusively reported Maci’s baby daddy Ryan Edwards and his family were fired from the show. 

His parents, Jen and Larry, got into a fight with Maci and her husband, Taylor McKinney, at the reunion over his feud with his baby mama.
