Long Time No See spends its last three days continuing its lead on primetime with CSM52 ratings past 1.0%. It also manages to overtake Only Side By Side With You in the weekly web rankings. No drama in particular seems to be pulling in stellar numbers, but the show’s been doing relatively well to be able to beat out the rest.
For the remainder of the week, The Great Expectations and the newly-premiered Love’s Lies and Next Time, Together Forever play within the same range though a rerun called Magic City scores high in both CSM52 and CSMNationwide ratings.
The Youku webdrama Women in Beijing dropped from the Vlinkage rankings while Qi Wei joins the weekly celeb list. It seems like a win-win situation either way for the drama and its actress. Flying Tiger moves one spot up to sixth place, and so the wait begins to see for the new crop of dramas as many shows on the top 10 have already concluded their run.
