Chinese TV viewers may see an all-boy singing contest next year since this year’s “Super Girl” pulled in nearly 100 million yuan (US$12.66 million) in profit, Shanghai Morning Post said.

“Super Boy,” if approved, would be conducted at the same period as its ally “Super Girl,” from next May to September, Wang Ping, general director of “Super Girl,” told the newspaper.
