A weekly analysis of the primetime TAMS Ratings
  How rich is Mr Sushi in the ratings?

So What's the story with Kenny Kunene's reality show So What? It's not starring in the Top 10 shows on e.tv so how's it doing in the ratings?

Is it bankrupt of viewers or is it earning enough to collect interest?

To answer the question, we've compiled the ratings across four recent weeks of the show to give you an idea of how it's performing.

We've included the ratings for Adults (15 +) and added the ratings for Children under 15 for interest value.

As you may know, the Adult viewership figure is the figure used as the industry standard when reporting viewership. This is the figure we use when reporting the weekly Primetime TV Viewing Figures but we thought it would be interesting to include children too.

We've also included links to the Primetime TV Viewing Figures for the relevant weeks so that you can compare the ratings to the Top 10 shows for each week.

For an explanation of how the viewing figures are calculated, please read this article.

This what the figures say:

Episode Date Relevant Week Adult
(15 +)
(Under 15)
Saturday, 1 October Week 39: 26 September - 2 October 980,000
156, 000 1,136,000
Saturday, 8 October Week 40: 3 - 9 October 1,484,000 312,000 1,796,000
Saturday,15 October Week 41: 10 - 16 October 1,204,000 201,000 1,405,000

So it's a touch and go situation for the show to make it into the Top Ten. 

It's definitely the best reality show in SA. Tjo! we are tired of documentaries that pose as reality shows. So What, has the right elements for a reality show: The DRAMA, the BLING and it's absolutely RIDICULOUS! These are the same elements that make Keeping Up With The Kardashians so popular. And oh pls, we don't want another Keeping Up With The Kardashians. 

That's why these "reality shows" fall short cos they try so hard to be like the US shows, instead of just using the elements that make it sell.

I think if So What, was screened during the week, the ratings would double. 

The timing is so inconvenient. Many peeps are out and about. I'm actually shocked it's doing so well.

Dear eTV

Please move So What to a weekday slot. 

Thank You.

I was watching it yesterday after a while and was not disspaointed, Moshidi is good. I kept on thinking how their ARs are since the've brought Naomi back
That woman is fire, she takes her craft very serious

KK's SW is good, I watch it whenever im home 
BIOF I forget cause I love zone14 so I keep on forgetting it, watched it twice and yambora
SW is pure ridiculous, KK is absolutely mad, I wonder how he is going to be like when he is broke.(looking at the way he "eats" the money, he will be unless he is making it in the same manner he "eats" it)

Nonhle's show is back on Vuzu sundays @11.

@Cnglemother - I saw the re-run of the first episode and it reminded me why I stopped watching the show. It's funny to watch now since Nonhle took a 360 degree turn.

Rhytm city has gained a lot of viewers bt largely becouse of the ISIDINDO time change.
