“Night After Night” was created last October. The recruitment of influential MC’s Tak JaeHoon, Park MyungSoo, and Kim JaeDong created much anticipation. However, after only 8 months time, the show is saying a last farewell to its viewers.
Careful observations that the reason for the cancellation of “Night After Night” is NOT due to the recent fatal car accident that Daesung was involved in are also emerging. “Night After Night” continued with its recordings despite Daesung being missing for three days, and the broadcast on the 6th cut out the majority of Daesung’s appearances on the show.
There is an analysis that the cause is low viewer ratings. The national viewership of the broadcast of “Night After Night” on the 6th was recorded to be 6.3% (AGB Nielson Media Research). Out of the programs from the three main broadcasting companies that aired at the same time, these are the most disappointing results. Another person affiliated with “Night After Night” said, “It looks as if the combination of various reasons caused the decision to cancel the show. The network is already preparing plans for its next programs.”
On Naver, articles are saying one of three things: 1) that the show is permanently cancelled 2) that the rumors of cancellation are NOT true, but the format of the show will change 3) that the rumors of cancellation are NOT true, but changes will be made to the cast.
Sadly, like a lot of other recent news, this means that the future will remain ambiguous for now. Maybe SBS will make a definitive statement in an hour, maybe in the next few days. Will update when new info is available. (via fuckyeahbigbangstuff)
