Guess Guess Guess hoping to get Harlem Yu as replacement host

Harlem Yu has been in the news quite often recently, with his upcoming concerts, as well as hosting next’s Golden Melody Awards. Chinatimes reported yesterday that he is the top candidate to take over Guess Guess Guess as Jacky Wu's replacement.

To make a long story short, the soon-to-be former host vowed to leave the show if its ratings don't break 2% within 3 months. He kept his words (surprisingly) and announced he is leaving the show after 12 years (Wu took over hosting duties 2 years after the show went on air.) 

Despite news Harlem Yu and Selina as possible replacements yesterday, Guess producer Chen Yen-Ming (陳彥銘) said they have yet to speak with either star about it.  Taping of the show will be halted starting this week, and they will have wait till the GMA's are over before Harlem is available for discussion.

Interestingly, if Harlem does take on Guess Guess Guess, he will completely fill the prime-time schedule on Saturday (starting with TTV's One Million Singer from 8 -10 pm, followed by CTV's Guess from 10 pm to 12 am.) Considering this is the same man who once said he was worried about being over-exposed, because reruns of his shows were on TV at least 4 times a week, it remains to be seen if he will take on a declining variety.
