The Mahkum gave hope to Fox TV, which had bad results with most of the TV series it screened this season. Let’s see how this experiment of Fox TV, which broke new ground in the TV world by broadcasting two episodes back to back in the same week, will turn out.
The first episode of the Mahkum series, starring Onur Tuna and İsmail Hacıoğlu, was broadcast on Tuesday, December 14. In fact, the reason why the first episode of the series, which was broadcast on Thursday, was broadcast on Tuesday, was that Evlilik Hakkında Her Şey, which was on the screen that evening, could not be filmed due to the coronavirus.
The Mahkum series got a very good result in the ratings with its episode aired on Tuesday evening. This is, of course, a pleasing result. However, it also brings with it question marks. Because if the Mahkum does not succeed on Thursday, which is the actual broadcast day, then things will get messy.
Now everyone is waiting for the Mahkum’s rating result, which will be announced tomorrow. But the audience has already taken action. Seeing the success of the series on Tuesday, the audience wants the Mahkum to be broadcast on Tuesday evenings. On the other hand, it has been announced that Evlilik Hakkında Her Şey will meet with the audience again on Tuesday evenings, starting from December 21.
Thursday night won’t be so easy for the Mahkum. Because very strong opponents are on the screen tonight. The strongest is Kanal D’s TV series Camdaki Kız, which has been the first in the ratings since the first day it was broadcast.
The ATV series Bir Zamanlar Çukurova, which aired on Thursday evenings, and Barbaroslar, which was broadcast on TRT 1, are now well-established series with their loyal viewers. If the Mahkum cannot reach the rates he achieved on Tuesday evenings on Thursdays, it will mean a big problem for Fox TV. Therefore, a very big test awaits the Mahkum tonight.
