Idols hits a major low note

Viewership for Idols tanked this month, by a whopping 31.89%, almost a third of its audience.

It attracted 1,018,607 for its highest episode last month after its Season 17 premiere and this month it plunged to an unprecedented 693,760 viewers on Sunday 8 August.

This was the Sunday immediately after the Somizi/Mogale scandal and M-Net's announcement that Somizi won't be judging on the season.

He still appeared as a judge until 22 August but the ratings didn't recover after 8 August.

Deur Dik en Dun 3: in the Top 10 soapie list's 17h30 broadcast of the Afrikaans-dubbed Turkish novela Deur Dik en Dun has proven to be a competitive contender.
