C-drama Ratings and Celeb Rankings (week starting Feb 19)

C-drama Ratings and Celeb Rankings (week starting Feb 19)
Negotiator C-drama Ratings
Another week has passed and Negotiator almost doubles its online viewership to celebrate reaching 7 billion views as of Sunday. It’s really the only show worth mentioning right now as many dramas on the weekly rankings are mainly reruns. Memories of Love falls flat being a new show. My Bittersweet Taiwan premiered mid-week to equally poor reception. 

As for web rankings, rising star Liu Haoran jumps to third. He doesn’t have a drama on the air, so I’m guessing that his popularity must be due to the action comedy movie Detective Chinatown 2 which was released on Lunar New Year. The Legend of Dugu is a new web drama starring Hu Bingqing, Zhang Danfeng, Ady An and Jeremy Tsui, and it is off to a good start, placing in sixth on its first week.
