Cable Ratings: MTV’s 'The City' Shines, 'The Hills' Slow
'The City' second season premiere was up 43% from its series premiere

The Hills continues to slow down as it ages, with the premiere drawing 2.1 million viewers at 10 p.m. That is down from 3 million viewers for the last season premiere in April, and 3.5 million from the season premiere in August 2008.
Still, MTV noted that the show was still the top program on television in its time period in the 12-34 demo the network targets.
While The Hills declines, its New York City-based sibling The City is starting to shine.
The second season premiere of the The City drew just over 2 million viewers at 10:30 p.m., that is up 43% from its series premiere, which drew 1.6 million viewers.
woo, hoo. There is a God. Just as we suspected. LC leaves, fans flock THE HILLS, and find their way in THE CITY. The closest thing to Lauren Conrad now is THE CITY. Anything that resembles LC is THE CITY. It's also said that LC will appear on THE CITY. In no time, THE CITY will surpass THE HILLS. It makes sense. THE CITY is THE HILLS at the next level. It's what this commentor has been pushing on THE HILLS since March of last year. THE HILLS is not what it use to be, especially since bonus Season 3. Now that LC's gone, it'll get much worse. Either LC returns, or it's a wing and a prayer.
