“Animals” Struggles to Attract Viewers, Hits Lowest Ratings Yet


The ratings for MBC’s variety show “Animals” only keep falling.

The March 22 broadcast of the show recorded a 2.6 percent viewership rating, which is a 0.2 pp decrease from the previous episode that aired on March 15.

Failing to live up to the initial expectations, “Animals” has been rumored to be facing cancellation for the past couple of weeks. On March 16, MBC admitted that they are planning to wrap up the show by mid-April, marking its end just two months after its premiere.

Last month, “Animals” was met with an unexpected challenge when one of the show’s segments had to be canceled due to a virus outbreak affecting pandas in China.

Meanwhile, the March 22 episode of “Animals” featured Jo Se Ho and EXID‘s Hani as guests.
