Chinese Drama TV Ratings and Online Rankings (week starting October 18)

CSM63 Cities + Online

Medal of the Republic finished its run this week while continuing to be the top drama online and on TV. Premiering in its place are Jin Dong and Yan Ni’s political drama People’s Property and spy thriller Belief starring Zhang Luyi and Nie Yuan. Both have broken above CSM63 ratings of 2% on their premiere week though People’s Property seems poised to be the new ratings leader with an average of 2.528%. It’s worth noting that People’s Property is the work of Zhou Meisen who wrote the screenplay for the hit drama In the Name of People.

Meanwhile, The Priceless at the 10pm slot ends its run to be replaced by Ren Zhong and Regina Wan’s suspense thriller The Twelfth Second. It follows the story of a police detective as he investigates the strange circumstances of his wife’s death.

Apart from Medal of the Republic, which currently holds the top spot online, People’s Property has leaped to second place while Rebirth For You in 3rd is still the top web drama. The Twelfth Second also makes it on the list in 5th place.
