I do hope they realized that casting rookies from random shows from random countries isn't the way to go. I feel like knowing the rookies made me root for them but casting some random people from love island Germany isn't the way to go. We cant even find their shows with closed caption.

It did better than bloodlines and invasion premiered it will go up as more episode airs I don't see it getting close to the peak of the past two seasons based on the other MTV shows ratings airing right now.

i cant think of any other reason than budget 

i also just think this "trilogy" idea is tired. the "themes" (rivals, ex's, seasons) make things more new and exciting and cause more drama. now it's just international reality tv all stars every season. 

if they really do want this "Themed trilogy" concept make it one season individual, one pairs, one team. that one thing will change dynamics considerably season to season vs. the last like 6 seasons being pairs. 

Airing at the same time as big brother took some of their viewers who def would of watched The Challenge if say it aired on a tuesday night.

It's not the first time it goes against big brother or survivor 

The agents theme has become so corny, it's almost embarrassing. It's very Nickelodeon feeling. There are too many randoms from shows people have no interest in and the viewers are probably going to complain about their accents unfortunately. This might be biased but most of the vets aren't appealing. They are annoying and tired. I don't see the ratings improving. Everyone has to be tired of this PG agents trash thing going on. I just hope ratings increase on the episodes with drama so they realize that's what we want and quit with the family friendly version we have now.

the ratings being down in the summer isn't shocking, but I don't know if they would improve much in a month from now. How many people are going to watch a month late into the game, when the rookies they may be interested are probably most likely gone and its the same old tired vets mixed with a few randoms? Idk. 

not for anything, some schools are already in session, so those people are home for the rest of the summer. I would think the show has better chance ratings wise in august compared to if it premiered in july.  

They actually did air the episode again at 10pm, and according to my cable, they will do it for episode 2 as well but not for 3. I always feel some type of way about them refusing to air repeats, because thats how I got into the show 20 years ago, watching it after school lol. But at this point, I'm not even shocked at how much MTV ruins everything they touch and fails to promote 

I don't understand why people think these ratings are bad.

It's not bad but it would be foolish for us not to recognize the drop

It's not awful for MTV standards but it's a pretty significant drop and not the direction you want your show heading.

Maybe they should bring back johnny flopnanas *giggles*

There are no excuses. The promotion was horrible and of course putting 60% foreign rookies won't encourage viewers

ans again: no one is watching for "survivor winner" Tommy from the lowest rated abs worst received survivor season in 20 years.

Speak for yourself! KVM is.

The drop is a network and cable issue not just this show. If you compared ratings from now to a year ago most of not all shows on cable have gone down especially the ones on MTV that stays playing ridiculousness no stop

Not a single cast remember have that type of impact on ratings.

The network executives at MTV need to be fired and replaced with someone who isn't an absolute moron.

The Survivor person I liked the most is already gone.  I also never said I or anyone would watch just for Tommy--just that he was an obvious cast choice

It's foolish to just see the drop and not put it into context IMO but yeah it's a big drop that won't have much/any impact on future decisions

This season should've been called The Challenge: Mice, Lice, and Vices
