Mnets Idol School Surpasses Expectations And PD Talks About Absence Of Devils Editing In Program

Mnets new reality show, Idol School, aired its first episode on July 13 and, despite some rumors and concerns regarding the show, Idol School is off to an auspicious start with an average viewer rating of 2.3 percent, which is higher than the viewer rating for the first episode of Produce 101 Season 2!

Despite being compared to survival programs like Produce 101, Idol School proved itself to be a different show entirely by really focusing on the development and growth of the students. Although many viewers were expecting something similar to other survival shows, the program highlighted each of the 41 students unique traits and talents from an unbiased point of view. During the episode, the students underwent evaluations in dance, vocals, and physical stamina, which allowed viewers to see the skills of all the students in a concise format.
