Chinese Variety shows on airing now.

Many Chinese citizens tied down at home with the epidemic, while their requirement for entertaining programs is still on the rise. Let’s see what are the 4 categories of most expected Chinese Variety shows in 2020.

1. Famous Franchise: Chinese Variety Shows Season N(2020)

With great content and creativity, there are many variety shows that have been held for several seasons and have a large number of faithful fans. These shows are to be expected:

Rating: 6.1  

Gaining huge success from the previous seasons, Singer 2020 must be one of the most expected Chinese Variety show in 2020.

With a new competition rule of surprising challengers and 7 talented initial singers, the audience rating of the released episodes were all listed as the first place in China.

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak in China, Hunan TV had to explore new ways of production, which called “cloud production.” Instead of recording on the live stage, the singers were recorded on separate locations, while the selected 500 audiences would cast their vote via the Mango TV app.

The show went on without the live audience since episode 3, some reviewers think it might lose audiences because the 500 audience judges have been a highlight of this show, however, the result of episode 3 turned out to be great, the audience rating continued to be ranking 1.

The first 3 episodes of Singer have already aired and got a high audience rating. Although there’s not much-confirmed information, I believe the following famous Variety Shows will be recorded after the epidemic is over and please more Chinese citizens’ life.
