CSM59 Cities + Online
Although Sniper and Beijing TV’s new drama The Legend of Xiao Chuo are the only ones to hit CSM59 ratings of 2% this week, Hunan TV’s Living Toward the Sun continues to lead overall. However, a new drama has taken the lead online.
The newly-premiered The Legend of Xiao Chuo starring Tiffany Tang Yan shrugs off the criticisms that it has received on the Chinese review-aggregation website Douban to be the top drama online. In second place is Li Yifeng’s suspense drama Fearless Whispers which airs on the state-run CCTV. Among the web dramas, The Blooms At Ruyi Pavilion settles in 4th place followed by Dear Mayang Street in 5th place.
Zhu Yilong leads the celebrity rankings while Tang Yan climbs to second place following her comeback drama along with leading man Shawn Dou entering the list in 9th.

Thanks for this report! 🙂 The C-drama landscape is getting interesting. Lots of shake-ups this week!
It’s also interesting that The Legend of Xiao Chuo is getting high viewership numbers despite receiving a low score and criticisms on Douban. With such a divergence, I’m not sure whether to go ahead and start the drama or not!
And Fearless Whispers seems pretty popular too but as far as I know, there are no English subs for it yet which makes it hard to check out 🙁
Hi! I started to watch this drama after gatting tired of Ruy and Overlord. The idea of this drama is close to ”The promise of Chang”an” and I was a little afraid that will have the same style. I was so wrog to think like that.
It has so much beauty and emotions, that it makes me watch it raw and again with subs.
I will try to read it if availeble in my country.
It has been some years since I descoverd this site. I”m happy it is still here!
Legend of Xiao Chu might pick up. Hopefully, the plot develops better. If people continue to say Tiffany looks old and tired… she was pregnant and probably really tired because in the early stages of her pregnancy.
