The Way We Were leads the dramas across the board with CSM52 ratings just slightly past 1.0%. Love Won’t Wait failed to hold on to its premiere numbers to trend down as the week progressed. It’s been so long since we’ve seen a drama with numbers in the 2.0% and 3.0% range but it looks like those days have gone.
A new crop of premieres hit the 10pm slot with Meet In Youth Love In Foods and A Family Has Children In The First Place. Both fall into the same range as Summer’s Desire which averages at approximately 0.5%. The Legend of Jade Sword lags with numbers at 0.1%.
Moonshine and Valentine seems to have moved down in web rankings but Victoria Song and Johnny Huang take the top two in celeb rankings. Talking Bones is a new crime thriller about forensic experts that just premiered last Tuesday. The show seems to have climbed into the top ten quite easily, and I’d be keen to see whether it manages to stay on the list.
