C-drama Ratings and Celeb Rankings (week starting Apr 23)

C-drama Ratings and Celeb Rankings (week starting Apr 23)
The Great Expectations C-drama ratings
Ratings have been all over the place lately with no clear winner in sight. Although it never managed to break past CSM52 ratings of 1.0%, The Great Expectations was among the top dramas for most of its run. It ended last night and has racked up 3.5 billion views while topping web rankings. Love’s Lies also snags the top spot last week despite failing to break 1.0%.
It goes to show that the poor showings may be here to stay as primetime numbers barely differ from the later 10pm shows. For one, Excellent Investor has been averaging with CSM52 ratings of 0.7%.
We are seeing a few new web dramas in the top 10. Cinderella Chef jumps to 4th place while Suddenly, This Summer and Oh My Emperor settle for seventh and tenth. The weekly celebs list still has the same three people on top with Dilireba, Zhao Liying and William Chan. Kudos to them as they don’t even have dramas airing at the moment, especially Zhao Liying whose last drama was last year.
