Heavily hyped #PlsCallMe on Mzansi Magic Music with multiple weekly episodes, cut down to just one episode per week on Saturdays.
#PlsCallMe on Mzansi Magic Music (DStv 321) is more a case of please make it go away - Mzansi Magic Music has cut down and done away with the show's multiple weekly episodes which has been reduced to just one a week barely months after it launched at the end of January.
Mzansi Magic Music hyped the start of #PlsCallMe in January with the return to television of former Jam Alley presenter V-Mash, as well as Nestum and Phule Welsh with #PlsCallMe which appeared to be positioned as the channel's new flagship show and early primetime anchor.
It appears potential viewers didn't even want to do the effort or waste the energy of interacting with a request show even if it doesn't cost them anything.
"Due to the nature of the television industry, we review our scheduling regularly and a decision was made to screen it once a week," Mzansi Magic Music tells TV with Thinus in response to a media enquiry as to why #PlsCallMe is suddenly down to one weekly episode.
Mzansi Magic says "#PlsCallMe is not the channel's flagship show".
