Game of Hunting has failed to make the splash that many anticipated with numbers well below 1.0% on its first week. Emergency Department Doctors continues to lead followed by China Rescue Salvage which averages in third. The poor showing seems to indicate that the drama lull may take a while longer before it ends, and here’s to hoping that it doesn’t extend to next year because I’m itching to have something to report (and watch).
The shows on the 10pm slot fare even worse with ratings below 0.5%. On another note, web rankings paint a much brighter picture for Game of Hunting which has shot up to first. Hu Ge who returns to the spotlight as the corporate man with a silver tongue has also topped celeb rankings along with the show.
