MBC‘s new reality TV show, ‘Music and Lyrics‘ which replaced ’We Got Married‘, which was permanently canceled this week, scored very low viewership ratings. The low ratings had many people criticizing MBC’s decision to eliminate ‘We Got Married’.
According to AGB Nielsen, ‘Music and Lyrics’ scored a tiny 3.3% on April 14th. This is a dissapointing figure, especially when you consider the fact that viewership between Music and Lyric’s first episode hardly differs from the re-run episodes of ‘We Got Married’ that were broadcast in previous weeks, due to MBC labor union strikes.
Other competitors in the same time slot faired better of course, as SBS‘ ‘Star Junior Show Bungeoppang‘ scored 10.1% while KBS‘ ‘Invincible Youth 2‘ recorded 4% ratings.
Music and Lyrics is a reality show involving a couple who collaborates together to form their own lyrics and melody to create a song. Currently, two couples are paired up on the show: Jay Park-Lee Shi Young and John Park-Park Jin Hee.
