The Hills Season Premiere Ratings Down, But Still High

Lauren Conrad is soooo over Heidi Montag.

MTV viewers, however, still can't get enough!

Well, some of them are over The Hills, to be sure. The ratings for the MTV show have declined 15 percent from last season, which was down 15 percent from the season prior to that. But still, the Season Five premiere was a hit.

The Hills' premiere, "Don't Cry on Your Birthday," scored Monday's highest TV rating among females age 12-24 and 18-24, according to new reports.

The hour of The Hills, kicking off the final season for star Lauren Conrad and perhaps for the show in general, averaged a strong 3 million viewers.

That figure would make the skanks on For the Love of Ray J salivate even harder than they do when they see the former sex tape star shirtless.

Just wait until Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt stage their four-part breakup, that should draw an even greater repulsed-yet-addicted audience.
