The recent changes to Hunan TV have yielded lower ratings. The Years You Were Late pulled in CSM52 ratings of 0.4% for its premiere. All Out Of Love which started at 0.7% also fell into the same range after being moved to 10pm. Battle Through The Heavens may have been suddenly pulled from the Friday lineup but it retains an average of 0.6% on TV. I think the show deserves more credit and has been gradually climbing the ranks to become the second leading drama online, just after Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace.
lET’s Shake It Season 2 and Shadow of Justice are two web dramas that have just made the weekly top 10. Mother’s Life doesn’t seem to get as much love online as it does on TV, but it has reached a new high with CSM52 ratings of 1.9% on TV. Karry Wang from Eagles and Youngster tops the celeb rankings for the second week in a row. After being somewhat of a permanent mainstay, it may be the first time that I’m not seeing Zhao Liying on the list.
