In 100 Words: Sirkus Ends Quietly

The circus ends here.

GMA’s ‘Sirkus’ officially wrapped up its run Sunday night with its 13th and final episode (see climax scene below). The series, which first aired January 21, failed to make a noticeable impact in the ratings, constantly losing to ‘Goin’ Bulilit’ in its timeslot.

‘Sirkus’ marked a rare attempt by GMA to bring high-budget fantasy series to weekends. Unfortunately, its poor performance may force GMA to abandon this strategy and shift its focus back to weekend sitcoms.

To their credit, GMA at least tried to give ‘Goin’ Bulilit’ (and ‘Wansapanatym’ to a lesser extent) a run for their money. Too bad there are still many areas with which the network must improve upon to become more competitive.

As for the replacement, wait for further announcements.

    At least, GMA7 Sirkus has a better storyline than ABS2 Bagani. If they only put it on primetime and with more popular and sexy artists, they might have a better share of the viewers

    • Sadly, Sirkus is catered to children and is intended to be a family-friendly show. Bagani may also be a show for all ages, but the SPG ratings in some of its episodes suggest that it’s catered more to an older clientele.

      A flop is a flop. Don’t worry though. The female of this flop has new show. Another show to jinx. There other far more deserving girl in GMA than that fat memo worthy girl.
