Only Side By Side With You failed to see an uptick in television ratings on its last day of airing. Long Time No See and The Great Expectations are the only two shows with notable numbers as Long Time No See leads CSM52 while The Great Expectations leads CSM Nationwide. Woman in Love starring Ada Choi is a new premiere from last week that is having trouble even making it into the rankings board.
I normally don’t cover drama reruns, but With You has started airing on Zhejiang TV. It currently performs in the same league as other 10pm shows like Excellent Investor and Untouchable Lovers.
The top three dramas online according to Vlinkage are the same primetime shows mentioned above followed by The Legend of Dugu in fourth place. The Legend of Dugu and Untouchable Lovers are both down to their final episodes. Despite the explosive start that had the show reaching 100 million views in 1 hour, Flying Tiger has not moved from seventh place.
