The latest episode of MBC 's ' Hangout with Yoo ' which was broadcast on last Saturday (30/7/22) recorded a nationwide rating of 5.4% and 5.9% in the Seoul area. Unfortunately, this rating achievement is the lowest rating ever achieved by 'Hangout with Yoo' this year. According to kbizoom , 'Hangout with You' usually achieves higher ratings than many other shows in the same slot, but the current performance is a bit disappointing compared to the average rating maintained by the program. Previously, 'Hangout with You' was MBC's flagship program because it had an average viewership range of between 6% to 7%. However, since the beginning of June, the rating has gradually dropped from 6.9% to 6.3% and finally reached 5.5% in the Industry Email List June 18 episode. Since then, the rating has remained in the 5% range without much variation. According to the audience, the drop in 'Hangout with You' ratings was caused by the prolonged broadcast of WSG Wannabe Special. Since early April, 'Hangout with Yoo' has indeed been working on a project to form the female vocal group WSG Wannabe, the successor to MSG Wannabe which had achieved success last year. This special content showing the formation of WSG Wannabe from zero to their debut has been broadcast for about three months in a row and bored viewers. Some of them criticized the program by saying, "I think they made it too long," "A new project or member change is needed (so viewers don't get bored)". Even though the ratings for 'Hangout with You' continued to drop to a record low, the new single by sub unit WSG Wannabe Gaya G entitled 'At That Moment' continued to dominate the top spot on music charts after its release, proving that the public is still enthusiastic about WSG Wannabe's debut. In addition, singles from the other two WSG Wannabe units, 'I Missed You' by 4FIRE and 'Clink Clink' OASISO, also entered the top 10 of several charts in South Korea. Meanwhile, 'Hangout with Yoo', which has been broadcast for 3 years, will return with a new season after the WSG Wannabe Special ends.
