Hit boy group Wanna One have recently made their debut with "Energetic," alongside their album going on sale two days ago. Now, with their popularity continuing to increase, the boys made a special guest appearance on 'Weekly Idol' and set a new record for the show.'

Due to their popularity, the show saw a huge increase in their ratings! Their episode aired on August 9 and recorded 1.8% in ratings (for cable channels), which is the highest in 'Weekly Idol' history since the show started on July 23, 2011!

The feat impressed fans everywhere as it even doubled the ratings of last week's episode which featured Turbo. Turbo's episode ratings came in at 0.9%. As expected, the viewer ratings were also mostly females in their early twenties. It seems their fan girls are only growing day by day!
