Is Candy Crush in trouble? Recently, CBS announced the TV show’s season finale has been moved to Saturday, September 2nd.
Based on the popular mobile game, the series follows contestants as they try to match three or more colorful candies to earn points, overcome obstacles, and move up through over 2,000 available levels. Mario Lopez serves as host.
Candy Crush used to air on Sundays, so why move the finale to Saturday? Well, ratings have not been great for the game show since it debuted in July. So far, season one is averaging a .58 in the 18-49 demo and only 2.474 million viewers. Moving the finale to Saturday could indicate a possible cancellation from CBS in the near future.
The two-hour season finale of Candy Crush premieres this Saturday, September 2nd, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
