Yes! I have found my new crack drama, and I’m happy to share that it’s kicking butt! After a strong premiere week, Heavy Sweetness Ash-like Frost climbs even higher to reach CSM52 ratings of 1.5%. It still has a ways to go before reaching 2.0%, but there’s hope! Partners is also seeing an improvement in numbers as it has begun wrestling Sweet Combat for second place.
Martial Universe is the new drama to join Meteor Garden and Legend of Fuyao on the 10pm slot. The show hasn’t done particular well in television ratings, but it has landed a solid fifth in the weekly web rankings. I know that Story of Yanxi Palace’s been garnering good reviews and good viewership since it premiered so maybe it’s all but expected to see the show soar past the few dramas hogging top three to finally land in first. Following their dramas, Yang Zi, Yang Yang and Qin Lan are the new additions to the celeb rankings.
