With MBC opting to broadcast the baseball game between Korea and China at the Beijing Olympics 2008 yesterday, the regular broadcast of “We Got Married” was cancelled once again. This has led to many viewers being incensed at MBC’s scheduling and insisting on having the right to choose what they want to watch and not being forced to watch whatever is planned by them.
The production team of MBC Sunday Sunday Night had posted the cancellation notice less than 24 hours before the actual broadcast at 10.20pm on the official website, “Because of the live broadcast of the baseball game tomorrow, Sunday Sunday Night will not be shown, we hope that viewers can understand.”
This abrupt notice left many viewers disappointed, “Granted that the Olympics are very important, but you can’t possibly stop showing Sunday Sunday Night for two consecutive weeks.” Before the cancellation notice was posted on late Saturday night, there were already many discussions on the official website where many wrote that they were looking forward to a new episode of “We Got Married” after the cancellation the week before. The wait continues.
Although the ratings for the Olympics broadcast have been really good, but it has also led to many variety shows and dramas on the three major tv stations to take a backseat and left many viewers feeling incensed at this sudden disruption and asking for their right to choose what they want to watch.
