Johannesburg - Just over a month ago it burst onto our TV screens in a blaze of glory, but Mzansi's Magic's star-studded Telenovela, The Road, seems to be facing a crisis.

After a super strong opening, which put it within the top 3 shows on the channel ( read more about that here), the show's ratings have dropped dramatically to an average viewership of 246 000 viewers per episode- putting it on par with Zabalaza, which was recently canned by the channel (read more about that here).

And even though fans are worried, it may be a tad premature for the likes of Nandi Mngoma, Gail Mabalane and Darlington Michael to be looking for new gigs.

Mzansi Magic tell us that there's no need to panic and it's business as usual on the set of The Road.

"The Road has only been on air since the 31st August. The show is in its 24th Episode, with 208 episodes for viewers to still to look forward to. We have no doubt that viewers will be captivated by the character journeys as the story progresses," Mzansi Magic spokesperson Bongiwe Potelwa told The Juice.

So there you have it Roadies, no need to panic!
