Popular e.tv series Durban Gen has lost 300 000 viewers after their episode that brought in 2 million viewers in November 2020. The series is set in a township in Durban, where the Durban General public hospital is situated.
The show hit the milestone of 2 million viewers a few months ago after only being on air for a period of two months.
The show stars Zuluboy, Bhekisizwe Mahlawe, Lihle Dhlomo and Meshack Mavuso to name a few.
According to entertainment blogger and television commentator Phil Mphela, the show has lost a huge number of viewers since the successful episode in 2020.
"The medical drama series peaked at 2 Million viewers in November but sadly dropped to 1,75-million for their most watched episode in December 2020," said Mphela.
A number of social media users took to Phil's comments to talk about why they think the show has lost so many viewers:
@_nhlanhla_ngubo said: "They should can it in my opinion. Reason being, I expected to see a lot of medical scenes and learn through the process like the show 'The Good Doctor’ but we have to know about Dr Zulu’s side chicks for half of the season."
@Luka_Marli commented: "I'm part of that 2 million. I thought it was gonna be more like Grey's. Medical cases plus a bit of drama. It's an entire Uzalo in a hospital setting."
@Amanda_Maps1 said: "They focus more on drama and dramatic scenes and forget that it's suppose to be a medical series."
