“Law Of The Jungle” Celebrates End Of Historic Antarctica Special With Top Viewership Ratings
SBS’s “Law of the Jungle” has celebrated its 300th episode in a big way!
The May 11 episode of the survival variety show was not only the “300” milestone, but also the end of its Antarctica special. The special was historic because it was the first South Korean variety show to film on the southernmost continent.
According to Nielsen Korea, the first part of the episode garnered viewership ratings of 9.5 percent, and the second part 10.8 percent. It took the top spot among other shows in its time slot, a spot it has occupied from the beginning of its Antarctica special (April 13) until now. It also got the highest viewership ratings of any variety show that aired on Friday, not just in its time slot.
The competition in its time slot were KBS2’s “Celeb TV” (2.7 percent), MBC’s “Those Who Cross the Line” (6.8 percent), tvn’s “Little House in the Forest” (2.6 percent), JTBC’s “Begin Again 2” (4.5 percent), and MBC’s “I Live Alone” (8.5 and 10.3 percent).
“Law of the Jungle” also scored 4.8 percent among the demographic most favorable to advertisers (20-49 year-olds), an increase of 1.1 percent since last week.
