KBS might be cancelling two variety shows due to low ratings.


According to an insider, 'Welcome SHOW' will be taken down only 4 months after it started because of its low ratings (averaging 2-3% per episode). KBS has denied the rumors saying that nothing was confirmed yet. However, rumors have also been popping up that 'Cool Kiz on the Block' will be cancelled for the same reason - ratings around 2%.

The station will go through a large line-up change after the Chuseok holidays at the end of the month. Since there will be a lot of pilots tested during Chuseok, whatever has a good response will be replacing 'Welcome SHOW' and 'Cool Kiz on the Block'. 


An insider said, "As no replacement program has been decided, they're trying not to talk about the decision to cut the shows. However, it's basically confirmed that the two shows will be cut. It has even been relayed to the main PDs. The exact dates will be confirmed  later, but they will be replaced during October."


Are you sad to see these shows go?

    That sucks. Welcome SHOW pulls in about the same number of Unnie's Slam Dunk, and Unnie's is slipping by the week. It also does better than Suspicious Vacation and the music programs. Not to mention Welcome SHOW follows VJ on the Scene and the difference between the two show's ratings are normally between 1-2%. Cool Kiz on the Block follows Love in the Moonlight and the drop there is about 14%, so if I was a programmer at KBS, I'd likely agree with Cool Kiz on the Block, but I'd suggest keeping Welcome SHOW around, at least until you see how Unnie's Slam Dunk stabilizes.And I say that as someone who doesn't watch any of the shows I mentioned, so I have no bias here.

    What a sad news....I really like ckotb...why don't management tap their actors who are sports minded and athletic run the show? I think ratings will improve if you place talents who are into sports since the show is a sports oriented one. Just an opinion. I never thought ckotb is not rating with all those personalities there. hope I can still watch ckotb on you tube. I really enjoyed the swimming badminton volleyball and basketball competitions.

    For Cool Kiz On the Block, please change the host. Kang Ho Dong is just too noisy and arrogant (that is if he still hasn't change).

    They shouldn't cancel CKOTB... although it is different from the way they started it is still showing Koreans different shows and how they work. It's saving gyms and clubs from shutting down!!!
