I actually like all three MCs individually but there is no denying that the show took a major dive once they took over. Doni and Coni aren't gonna comeback with Idol Room doing so well but hopefully they'll be able to secure a duo or trio with more CHEMISTRY! The next MCs need to be people who already know each other and work well together.

There's no denying that hosting a show like Weekly Idol is a difficult job, you kinda have to do the OPPOSITE of what you're usually expected to do on other shows, you have to allow yourself to fade into the background a bit and make the guest of the week the star of the show. Not everybody has the skill to pull that off.
