Update: MTV has already given “Winter Break: Hunter Mountain” a new timeslot. The show will be airing on Fridays at 8PM ET starting on March 16.
Ratings for the premiere episode, which aired on Tuesday, February 27, are below. They were not good.
The premiere of MTV’s “Winter Break: Hunter Mountain” did not attract a substantial audience.
According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Tuesday’s series opener drew a paltry 0.10 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. The half-hour episode averaged just 184,000 overall viewers.
“Winter Break” did not receive prime scheduling. It aired at 10:30PM — after a modestly rated “The Challenge” after-show (0.24, 422,000 million). The positioning made it very unlikely that “Winter Break” would emerge as a big hit.
Still, it is hard to view the numbers as anything but weak.
— The ratings report may not be kind to “Winter Break,” but Wednesday does bring good news for another show from executive producer SallyAnn Salsano.
“Jersey Shore: Family Vacation,” the upcoming “Jersey Shore” relaunch, has already been renewed for a second season at MTV.
The first season does not even premiere until April.
