‘LHHATL’ Viewers Call for Erica Mena to be Fired and Joseline Hernandez Rehired After Ratings Drop
VH1’s most popular reality show “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” lost a significant amount of viewers over the past year and fans are demanding that certain people be “dropped” from the cast.
The statistics for the reality show’s overnight ratings were at an all-time low for season 7. The ratings were down 25 percent according to the AJC and averaged 2.06 million watchers. This compared to the 2.74 million viewers from last year.
“Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” began in 2012 with high viewership, but season 7 ratings are the worst they’ve ever seen.
The executive producer of the reality show Mona Scott-Young and other VH1 producers tried bringing new members to the cast like Eric Mena, Just Brittany, Spice, Tokyo Vanity and Keely. However, some of the new faces were hit-and-miss. Fans have requested that a significant amount of people be fired from “LHHATL.”

Many fans were annoyed with VH1 host Nina Parker and said she was “boring.” One person wrote, ” [Mona Scott] hey girl. We need a new host for the reunions. Someone with a bit more energy who can ask all the right questions and command the audience and the cast.”
Viewers also chimed in and requestion Keely, Estelita Quintero, Mimi Faust, Erica Mena and couple Kirk and Rasheeda Frost be booted from the show.
Countless fans also said they’d stopped watching the show due to the absence of the “Puerto Rican Princess” Joseline Hernandez. The star left VH1 in 2017 due to how she was being portrayed on “LHHATL” and was fed up with the way production handled her. The reality star headed over to We Tv and will star in her own reality show “Joseline Takes Miami.”
“LHHATL” ratings have never recovered since the departure of Hernandez.
