On Friday evenings, the two series are struggling in the ratings. Since the beginning of the season, the Yalı Çapkını (Golden Boy) series has not left the first place to anyone. However, Kızılcık Şerbeti (Cranberry Sherbet), which sprung up 3 weeks ago, now surpasses its rivals in AB and ABC1 groups and takes the first place with the best ratings of the week.
On the other hand, only the first place in the category of all persons remained for the Yalı Çapkını series. It may be possible for this to go away in the coming weeks. In other words, Yalı Çapkını on Star TV on one side and Kızılcık Şerbeti on Show TV on the other.
The ratings seem to be head-to-head competition and somewhat in favor of Kızılcık Şerbeti. However, in such an environment, the situation became critical for the Kızlıcık Şerbeti series, for which the Radio and Television Supreme Council imposed a five-episode suspension and a 1.5 million TL fine.
The reason for the punishment was ‘normalizing violence against women’, which was also disturbing.
The most meaningful reaction to the punishment given to the series that dragged millions after it came from the Kızılcık Şerbeti series team. Actors send messages to RTÜK, one after another, and post, “Don’t touch the Kızılcık Şerbeti.”
Afra Saraçoğlu and Mert Ramazan Demir also participated in this reaction interaction.
Giving this support to Kızılcık Şerbeti, for which they are in great competition in the ratings, is a very meaningful and gentlemanly attitude.
Burcu Alptekin, the director of the series, and Beril Pozam, one of the actors, also shared their support.
If Kızılcık Şerbetit is penalized, the Yalı Çapkını series can have a very successful process by reaching double-digit ratings again.
But not being on the air of the opposing drama is not an advantage. This gentlemanly attitude of the actors deserves applause, as there will be a penalty in such an environment.
