Guan Xiaotong and Ma Ke’s idol drama Love of Aurora is the new premiere for the week. It seems to be playing along the 0.6% – 0.7% range which is not high but still considerably better than its predecessor, Endless Love, which has only managed to eke out 0.48% on its best day. Legendary Tycoon averages at a new low of 0.1% while Xuan Yuan Sword settles for 0.2%.
As for the primetime dramas, Zhang Jia Yi’s Beijing People in Beijing and My! Physical Education Teacher continue to dominate while Hu Ge’s Game of Hunting experiences a gradual decline. Even so, the show more than makes up for it in web rankings as it has consistently topped the Vlinkage list since the first day of its premiere, so has its cast. Last but not the least, I was hoping to see some Tribes and Empires cast members in the weekly top 10. Lo and behold, Shawn Duo has jumped to third.
