Untouchable Lovers 凤囚凰 is coming to an end with one week left to go. It’s hard to believe that the show has been on air since January as it has stayed under the radar with unimpressive ratings for most of its run. Similar numbers can be seen across the other 10pm shows, and even the newly-premiered Excellent Investor is also pulling in CSM52 ratings around the 0.7% range. Untouchable Lovers also airs online through Mango TV and iQiYi and it has just reached total views of 4.5 billion.
Dilireba seems to still be riding the highs of The Flame’s Daughter as she takes the top spot in the weekly celeb rankings back from William Chan. It’s nice to see these two topping the chart. Does anyone still ship them? They had their breakout roles as a couple pairing in Sword of Legends four years ago, and they’ve both transitioned to leading roles now.
Only Side By Side With You continues to do much better online than on television while Long Time No See is the new ratings leader on primetime.
