C-drama Ratings and Celeb Rankings (week starting May 8)

Ode to Joy 2
It's a new week and newcomer Ode to Joy 2 slides in for the win with its overflowing star power and heartfelt offering. Truth be told, I expected as much from the highly-anticipated sequel to a very popular show. Ode to Joy replaces the slot previously occupied by Surgeons and if you are missing Jin Dong, he's in this too (sort of).

Surgeons put up a good fight but it had a hard time overtaking Fighter of the Destiny throughout its run. It still managed to come in first place on its last day with respectable ratings of 1.002  that is not high but good enough. 

That said, the landscape definitely seems to be changing to give way to a picture with Ode to Joy at the top. In fact, we're already seeing better numbers as the show breaks past 1.0 in its simulcast on Dragon TV and Zhejiang TV. I won't be surprised if it maintains its lead especially with forgettable shows like Song of Phoenix rounding up the competition. 

White Deer Plain also premiered this week and it is in fifth place. This is the show that was taken down after going on air last month. I guess whatever it is that needed fixing has been fixed though it remains to be seen whether the changes can translate to higher numbers. 

Lastly, can we take a moment to appreciate Legend of Dragon Pearl? It's probably never going to get spectacular numbers since it's playing between 11th, 12th, 16th and 22nd place but it's cute and a breeze to watch at only 30+ minutes per episode. And if we're pointing out doubles, the show's heroine Yang Zi is in Ode to Joy 2.

  1. Happy that Jin Dong career is doing well after The Disguiser. Surgeons is a good drama with solid acting from everyone, yes, even the supporting ones.
