19 Dec – Despite the fact that it was launched only several weeks ago, KBS' "Invincible Youth 2" continues to fizzle with its decline in ratings.
According to Allkpop website, the second season of the popular idol variety program aired a new episode last Saturday, which garnered a dismal 5.4% rating nationwide, according to AGB Nielsen. This is a 0.5% percent drop from the previous week's episode, which drew 5.9%.
What's even worse is that its main competitor, MBC's "Quiz To Change The World", is trouncing "Invincible Youth 2" with a maintained 14.3% in ratings.
The continued ratings decline is bad news for the show's producers, especially since the ratings have fallen from a comparatively steady 7% in its first week.
"Invincible Youth 2" is the second season for KBS's acclaimed farm-variety program, which managed to gain a strong audience in its first incarnation. Some of the former members of the show were BEG's Narsha, SNSD's Sunny and HyunA while the second season members include returning star, SNSD's Sunny and Hyo-yeon, KARA's Ji-young, Miss A's Suzy, Jewelry's Ye-won, SISTAR's Bora, Rainbow's Woo-ri, and f(x)'s Amber.
