I’m loving A Dream Of Splendor!!
where do you get your data? Because you compare the CSM63 Satellite TV Rating to CCTV Rating,, can your data count compare one on one with the CCTV Rating data?
why not you use the valid CVB data?
It include all China TV Channel Primetime (the Satellite TV and CCTV ) with the same Rating generate. So this one the most valid, accurate and in China the most credible.
According to CVB : (I will get you 2 dramas example)
– Defying the Storm average Rating only got 0.348%, No. 6
– Ordinary Greatness average Rating was 0.989%, No. 3
Because many ppl rely on your Rating please provide the Accurate, Valid and Credible Rating Data next time 🙂

Hi Tammy – Thank you for your comments. The CSM data is linked in source 2. It’s based on the CSM cities daily report. The report includes Satellite TV and CCTV dramas, so the comparison is one on one as we look solely at ratings from CSM cities for both.
As for CVB, we are aware it’s a newer weekly report that came along in recent years from China’s NRTA no less. Although we have stuck to CSM, we’ve been considering making the switch to CVB. Or whether it’s even worth continuing the ratings report, since as you may notice, ratings on CSM and CVB yield different results. Actually curious to hear everyone’s thoughts as well.
