MBC’s variety show “Star Gazing” will be coming to an end after five months.
According to a representative, the show will air its last episode within the next three weeks. As the schedule might be pushed back due to the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, the final air date is currently undecided.
“Star Gazing” has finished filming material enough for two episodes. The follow-up show is yet to be revealed, but MBC is planning to announce a new variety show in mid-October.
“Star Gazing” has provided a talk show-like setting for fans and their favorite stars, but from week to week, the show has failed to draw in the viewers. Compared to its competitors KBS2TV’s “Happy Together 3” and SBS’ “Honey,” the ratings have been fairly low, and the unique format has not lived up to its initial expectations, resulting in the cancellation. The show has been hosted by Kang Ho Dong, supported by regular panel guests Song Eun Yi, Kim Young Cheol, SHINee‘s Key, and Im Ho.
According to the source, MBC is considering extending its Chuseok special shows “My Tutor Friend” and “Hello! Stranger” to fill up the time slot of “Star Gazing.”
