  1. I’m not watching Rebel, but I’m glad MBC’s show is doing well up against a giant. Hopefully they’ll get to *be* the ratings giant sometime this year.

      It’s always difficult going up against a ratings giant. But yes, it is still pulling in solid numbers despite that. MBC really does need a turn to get a big hit this year.
