CSM59 Cities + Online

Hunan TV’s newly aired Roving Inspection Team is another political drama on the fight against corruption among the rich and powerful through the Chinese criminal justice system. If it sounds familiar, it’s because it comes from the makers of the widely-praised In the Name of the People. The show has already reached CSM59 ratings of 2% this week which makes it a close second to Healer of Children which has been airing for weeks. Meanwhile, the highly-anticipated Like a Flowing River 2 has premiered on December 20 with CSM59 ratings of over 1%.

Tencent’s wuxia drama Legend of Fei has quite predictably shot up to top the list of dramas online. Crime drama The Penalty Zone starring Ou Hao ranks in 4th while the family-documentary drama The Stage comes in at 9th place. Roving Inspection Team also makes the list in 7th place. 

With his new drama, Legend of Fei actor Wang Yibo takes the lead for the top celebrities while his leading lady Zhao Liying climbs to 4th. The Wolf star Xiao Zhan slides down by one spot to 2nd place. Ultimate Note actor Joseph Zeng Shunxi also makes the list in 5th.
