Having been one of the most anticipated variety shows this year, it appears as if SBS‘ Running Man is quickly running into a wall.
Earlier today, AGB Nielson Media Research reported that the latest broadcast of ‘Running Man’ received a national rating of a mere 5.6% in national standards.
The rating dropped 1.4% from the previous week’s rating of 7.0%.
Initially, ‘Running Man’ replaced Family Outing 2 as the latter show failed to impress viewers. Ironically, it appears as if it may just go down the same path (though there has been no word of cancellation). However, with the overused concept, the show has not been faring well over the past several weeks.
What do you viewers think? Will the show face a premature end or will it miraculously pick up higher ratings? Or could it be that MC Yoo Jae Suk is not satisfying the audience’s needs (although we’d like to think not).
