Our Review expert made a worthy review in the article about Generations after the first episode “The show tonight was confusing, has no basic footing and looks like generations would loose quite a large number if not more from its loyal viewers”
The newly launched show which once pulled in an average of 7 million viewers has taken a steep dip to an average of 5.9 million. While Generations: The Legacy made it’s keenly awaited debut to a record breaking 7,5 million last week Monday, the expert review team of #MM were not amazed as they viewed the scoring as too early. They believed many of the viewers were watching to decided and they maybe right. The new ratings show that the soapie is now losing its audiences as predicted by reviewers.
According to Channel 24, Mfundi Vundla’s revamped drama, which features an almost entirely new cast, is not pulling in as much eyeballs as hoped. Instead, the show has been declining since it first aired and could soon be overtaken by other productions such as SABC 2’s Muvhango and SABC 1’s Soul City.
The ratings stand as follows:
Monday: 7,5 million
Tuesday: 6,5 million
Wednesday: 6,1 million
Thursday: 5,4 million
Friday: 4,1 million
Viewership figures for Generations: The Legacy could drop further as other channels like, e.t.v , VuzuAmp, MzansiWetu announced plans to launch new soapies in the same time slot which was once dominated by the SABC 1 drama. The Market is shaky for Generations and created a gap that is presently being filled by Isibaya and Muvhango and gearing more players to the screens. We hope the producers identify the cause of the plunge and revive the viewer-ship before its too late.
