Lately, primetime seems to be dominated by either spies or cops with Lost in 1949, Patriot and Fire airing concurrently. It had seemed like Lost in 1949 would make a big splash after hitting CSM52 ratings of 1.0% on its first day, but the show has slipped back to 0.9%. Love Won’t Wait continues to be one of the leading dramas. It competes with Lost in 1949 in CSM52 ratings, leads by a huge margin in CSMNationwide and tops web rankings with the most online views. The show has just crossed another milestone to hit 3 billion online.
There’s been a few more changes in terms of internet rankings with the newer premieres edging out shows like Demon Catcher Zhong Kui which are also fairly new. It’s always nice to see newcomers finding success and Xiao Zhan of the Chinese boyband X NINE eases into ninth place in the weekly celeb list.

Thanks for the ratings. Do you know why Tong Liya is trending? Does she have a drama at the moment?
Nevermind! Just realised she is in 'Patriot'
