Tjovitjo sheds a million viewers in one month

After setting a record as the most popular drama series on TV, SABC 1’s Tjovitjo shed over 1 million viewers in September to become only the eighth most watched show in Mzansi.

Tjovitjo was the talk of the town after its debut in August amassed more viewers than local TV cult classics Yizo Yizo and Zone 14 in their prime. However the Broadcast Research Council’s latest Television Audience Measurement Survey (TAMS) revealed that the show dropped from 5.7 million viewers in August to 4.5 million viewers in September.

That figure saw it tumble three places on TAMS’ SABC 1 most-watched list, with Bafana Bafana’s matches against Cape Verde and the Zulu News proving more popular with viewers.
