C-drama Ratings and Celeb Rankings (week starting Sep 7)

ratings love and redemption

CSM59 Cities + Online

With Go Ahead out of the way, Love and Redemption takes the crown as the most-watched drama online. I’m sad to see it go and experiencing withdrawals as we speak since it was a very satisfying watch.

Meanwhile, Zhu Yilong is back as Season 2 of Reunion: The Sound of the Providence premiered last night and lands the show in 2nd place. Though his other drama To Dear Myself starring Liu Shishi settles for 4th online, it currently leads on TV with CSM59 viewership ratings over 2%. Misaeng remake Ordinary Glory and detective drama Miss S are not far off as both average around 1.8% in CSM59 ratings for the week.

Most of the same celebrities are in the top 10 with Liu Shishi and Sisyphus actress Bridgette Qiao Xin joining in 6th and 8th. Zhu Yilong who now has two dramas airing climbs to first followed by Cheng Yi in 2nd. Cheng Yi’s new drama The Promise of Chang’An rounds up the list in 10th.
