- Korina Sanchez had Mocha Uson for an episode of Rated K.
- The latter caused the ratings of the show to drop.
- Competing against Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho, Rated K barely scraped any viewers during the episode.
Korina Sanchez recently interviewed former PCOO ASec. Mocha Uson. She announced this on her social media accounts before the episode for Rated K aired. Interviewing the most controversial blogger and announcing it on social media may be a wrong move as the episode caused Rated K‘s ratings to plummet.
According to Kantar Media, Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho continued to beat Rated K with 27.7% while the latter had 18.1% on September 30, Sunday.
Rated K continued to lose against the Kapuso rival. It barely made a dent with viewers with Mocha’s appearance in the episode aired on October 7, Sunday. Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho had 25.3% while Rated K dipped lower with 14.9%.
Korina announced this on October 6, Saturday a day before the episode aired.
“Impossible? But true. An interview with the controversial influencer, and now resigned government official, Mocha Uson. It’s a free country. We can be who we want to be and choose what we want to say. That much about political reality, we both respect. Ayoko nang mag kuwento. Manood na lang kayo. RATED K, 8:30 pm, Sunday, ABSCBN Channel 2. Kasi kung ang impossible nangyayari, #PangRatedKYan”
Rated K viewers express dismay.
Korina also posted this on her Facebook account where Rated K viewers expressed their dismay. Many had declared they won’t watch or switch channels if Korina gave Mocha another platform.
“ms korina, lahat ng episode mo sa rated k hindi ko pinalagpas, baka ngayon lang. Walang ka kwenta kwenta. sorry ms korina hindi kami manonood.”
“We watch Rated k all the time but we have to pass this episode”
“Magrate kaya ang episode na eto? Nanunuod ako ng rated k… pero pag siya never mind! Lipat channel na lang”
“You just wasted your show’s precious time Ms Korina”
These are only some of the comments that Korina received once she announced Mocha’s appearance in Rated K.
