Teen Mom 2 Ratings Plummet: Can Jenelle Evans Save the Show?

Jenelle Evans has told followers that she’s ending her very effed up marriage to David Eason.

But while fans think through the consequences of this decision and even give Evans props for finally arriving at it, they must also now deal with a brand new rumor:

Jenelle Evans may be embarking on a brand new beginning with Teen Mom 2.

According to a new report, the once unthinkable notion of re-hiring Evans is at least being thought about by MTV executives, as they deal with a major drop in the show’s ratings and interest.

Just how bad has it gotten? And could this actually come to fruition?

Scroll down for some facts and some speculation…

1. She’s Outta There!

Jenelle evans cant believe you
It took a very long time, but MTV finally came to its sense in May 2019 when it fired Evans from Teen Mom 2, doing so after the troubled star’s husband, David Eason, shot and murdered their family dog. This actually happened.

2. MTV Had Already Fired Eason, Of Course

Said the network in a statement this past spring, referencing how it had ended its affiliation with Eason over his many instances of homophobia: “MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since. Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.”

3. How Did Evans Handle The Firing?

Not terribly at the time. “I was a little bit shocked but I saw it coming,” she told Us Weekly afterward. “It’s shocking still but I respect their decision and have nothing but love for MTV. This is a new chapter for me and my family. I will continue to try what’s best for me and my family.”

4. More From Evans:

“David has been here for me since the news broke, he told me to not worry about it and to stay positive,” she added in May. “I’m keeping busy and staying focused on my kids and my animals and my business endeavors which have been planned for months. I’m working to fix my marriage as well and moving forward.”

5. Who Was Brought in to Replace Jenelle?

Jade Cline. She debuted in September 2019 by arguing a lot with her baby daddy, which would make it seem like she’s fitting in very well, right?

6. Jade Certainly Thinks So

“I wouldn’t consider myself a replacement,” Cline told TMZ this fall. “I think I have a good storyline and my story is really relatable to people. I’m just raw with my story so I hope people really relate to it.”

We haven’t seen Kody Brown and his better halves for awhile, but this will change when the calendar flips to 2020.

When will new episodes premiere? And what sort of storylines will be featured next year?

Consider yourselves SPOILER WARNED and scroll down to find out:

Season 13 wrapped up with the second half of a tell-all special back on April 21, 2019. You remember the main takeaway from that finale, right?

“What we’ve had to do is discover our new baseline,” Kody explained about how things were falling apart with Meri, but how they were trying to save their spiritual marriage.

3. Has the Pair Figured Things Out?

“The past is gone,” Kody said on this special, referring to Meri’s catfishing scandal and all the issues the couple has faced, adding: “I am cutting off everything that was the past. It’s a new date, it’s a new girlfriend, it’s a new person, but we have a history and we also know each other.”

4. And Yet… Meri Seems So Unhappy These Days

She sure does. She seems constantly lost and sad and confused on Instagram, which may help explain this line from the official Season 14 synopsis: “Tensions with first wife, Meri, are still unresolved and she goes back into therapy with Kody to try to fix their relationship.”

5. Sounds Heavy. What Else Can Fans Expect on Season 14?

According to this same network description, the move from Las Vegas to Arizona will be at the crux of basically everything. To quote from TLC again: “The sister wives have just moved to Flagstaff, Arizona, where they find that the ups and downs of their family’s polygamist lifestyle are as dramatic as they’ve ever been.”

6. Down with the Browns!

It sounds as if things will get both ugly and personal next year, too, as “angry neighbors drive one wife out of her rental house,” TLC teases. “And the cost of the many properties the family needs for Kody’s four wives and many kids are threatening a financial disaster.”

Derick Dillard Trashes Jim Bob Duggar, Threatens to Sue TLC

Look. We wish we’d never have to write about Derick Dillard ever again.

Trust us on this one.

We can think of much better ways to spend our time than to pay any attention at all to someone who bullies transgender youths and who seems to have no tolerance for anyone with a different set of beliefs.

We’re just not big fans of Dillard around here.

And it turns out that he isn’t a big fan of Jim Bob Duggar or of TLC. What a shocker, right?!?

What has Derick said now about his father-in-law and about the network that fired him?

Scroll down to find out!

1. Ugggh, Hasn’t Derick Been Canceled?!?

Derick dillard got his flu shot
Not entirely, it seems. TLC did it best way back in late 2017 when it announced that it would never featured the homophobe on its network ever again.

2. Refresh Our Memories Here. What Happened?

We need to go back to August 2017 here, back to when Dillard came off the top rope out of nowhere and attacked fellow TLC reality star Jazz Jennings.

3. Take All THIS Jazz!

Jennings has become famous as a transgender icon, as her TLC series chronicles her life as someone living with this idenity. Derick made it clear over two years ago that he’s grossed out by her mere existence, basically.

4. What Did the Loser Tweet?

“What an oxymoron… a ‘reality’ show which follows a non-reality. ‘Transgender’ is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it’s ordained by God.”

5. He Trashed Her Over and Over Again, Too

In September 2018, Dillard was at it again. “I just speak out against child abuse, and especially those who promote it, because it’s the right thing to do,” he claimed in a tweet, comparing gender transformation surgery to abuse and adding: “It’s just absolutely awful. And should not be celebrated.”

6. You’re Fired!

In November 2017, TLC executive finally had enough of being associated with Dillard. The network confirmed it had fired Dillard.
