CSM55 Cities + Online
Spy Hunter had a great final week as it managed to stay consistently above 1% on Jiangsu TV and even broke 1% on Zhejiang TV so that both TV stations took 2nd and 3rd for the day just after The Story of Minglan. Minglan remains uncontested as the leading drama on TV and online with fluctuating numbers as high as 1.79% and as low as 0.99%.
Behind the Scenes also aired its finale early in the week without much change in TV ratings though it did manage to make the top 10 dramas online. The Legends which just started airing also makes the list in 8th place. I’m personally more curious about Emperors & Me which jumped to 5th place. It’s a web drama that takes time travel to another level with kings from different time periods ending up in the modern day.
The Story of Minglan continues to lead nationwide with ratings above 1%.
