KBS reps stated, "'Mamma Mia' will be cancelled. Although the exact date of its cancellation has not been confirmed yet, a pilot broadcast will air during Chuseok and a regular program will be confirmed afterwards." 

Although there were rumors of '1N2D's cancellation, according to KBS reps, 'Mamma Mia' will be the first to go as its been on the chopping block due to its poor average viewer rating of 5%. Meanwhile, MC Park Mi Sun who has been recovering from her leg injury will return to 'Mamma Mia' for its filming on August 18th.

Upcoming KBS 2TV variety show 'Qualifications of Dad' is currently the most likely candidate to replace 'Mamma Mia' in its time slot.

i don't really care anymore if it gets cancelled. I started watching it because of Minho and they switched him to kyuhyun (wasn't really a fan but i fell in love ) so i kept watching and i got hooked on the show because some of the episodes were really interesting and funny but now they switched him again to kyunghwan and i was okay with it but now they are all regulars guests and all of them are women without doing anything special or funny they are either bragging, fighting or crying and they rank eachother through the whole episode and i'm not korean so i can't really relate to any of it and i don't really care who ranks first and who does what and if i wanted to see that i'd go downstairs to my own mother this show went from HIT to just a place were mothers and daughters complain about eachother i have i an episode that i downloded before but i'm really hesitating on whether or not i should watch it

Don't say its true, I watch the show because of Park Eunyeong!! Best way to fix it - get rid of the comedians and bring back the idol guest stars!! The old ;format was way more ;entertaining than the new one with the same old pairing, need to add more ;'spice' to get viewers and mother/daughters jealous!! ;

Damn. I liked this show too. I watched most of its episodes and I really was looking forward to seeing some other idols with their mothers, like maybe a mcs with their mothers episode, so many ideas I had for this show, gone. Why? :(

sorry but this show was boring! i didn't even watch a full episode of it yet because i always get bored, i only watched the cuts with infinite and sistar.

i guess only the fans were watching it to see there idols, it wasn't targeting the general public

Both the SM idols suck bad in Mamma Mia. SM idols aren't good in variety. Changmin also is wooden in Kiz on the Block. That's what you get when you stick untalented boring idols in variety shows. Obviously the PDs didn't put the idols in there because they thought they would enhance the programs but because they have an inside relationship with SM. This is the result. The PDs don't care a damn because it's not their money they're risking, it's the public's money that gets used by these public networks (KBS2), and if they scratch SM's back, SM will scratch their back. ;

It's happened with Dream Team as well. That's just turned into an idols' show and it's no longer about seeing good athletic performances from the Dream Team and other people. The quality has also gone down. ;

So the bad ratings for Mamma Mia could have been predicted. It actually made me feel awkward watching that show because the SM idols were so stiff and unentertaining. And you have to remember that these idols are pretty uninteresting as in real life all they've done is train in dancing and singing and haven't been able to develop an independent personality on their own. Everything's carefully planned by SM. ;

So as long as these special relationships between the PDs and SM-C&C/SM continue, you are going to get a series of failed variety programs that only have ratings in the low single digits and that are canceled after a short time. ;

Actually I think SM idols are pretty good in variety shows .... Minho was a bit awkard but Kyuhyun was pretty good .... I think the problem is more the point that they have too many as permanent cast .. I would be good to have 2 mothers permanent and the rest always new mothers so we can see the interactions of many celebrities with their moms

minho was there for eye pleasure (i know he pleased me O_O ) but kyuhyun was great and you could really tell that they edited him alot if not he would've taken over the talk show with him personality but like lakina91 said thay brought to many permanent guests who are like water and blanded the show and now they're all permanent and they show so they're is nothing but water in the pot . i'm sure many feel the sameway i just lost interest and stopped watching
