C-drama Ratings and Celeb Rankings (week starting May 14)

Chinese Drama Ratings May 2018
Sadly, ratings don’t seem to be improving from previous weeks which may be a testament to how people are feeling about the recent drama selections on tv. The Way We Were which shot up to second and third place on its first day eventually took the top spot from Here to Heart during the latter part of the week. Here to Heart still retains the lead for the most part even with numbers that are barely into the 1.0% range. 
At least the two shows are also doing well online to hit 4.5 billion and 1 billion respectively as of the writing of this post. Moonshine and Valentine deserves a special mention for trailing behind the two primetime dramas in third. It seems to be the only one that’s getting collectively good feedback. 
Meanwhile, celeb rankings seem to have undergone an overhaul. Cai Xukun who won Idol Producer with the most votes proves his popularity by rocketing to the top of the list. The TF Boys Roy Wang, Jackson Yi and Karry Wang are also within the top 10. Moonshine and Valentine stars Victoria Song and Johnny Huang are in 3rd and 6th place.
