Huge blow for 'boring' Uzalo


The once popular show has lost millions of viewers.

According to the September prime time adult TV viewing figures, the soapie that once had 10 million viewers, has dropped to 6 879 581 viewers.

It is followed by Generations: The Legacy, with 5 900 469 and Skeem Saam, with 5 034 935.

Last year, Uzalo producers were given an ultimatum by the public broadcaster to change its boring storyline.

The show’s spokeswoman, Nomfundo Zondi, said although the numbers have dropped, they were glad to be still number one.

“Viewers are still enjoying Uzalo. Reaching 10 million was a miracle. We made history. With the interesting upcoming storyline, we believe we are going to gain more viewers,” said Nomfundo.

The show started losing viewers from March, which saw it sitting on 8 149 339 viewers and slightly increased in April, sitting on 8 237 563 viewers.
