C-drama Ratings and Celeb Rankings (week starting May 22)

Operation Love
With A Life Time Love scheduled to premiere in two weeks, Operation Love starts churning out episodes like there's no tomorrow. Instead of airing two episodes every Monday, it airs four episodes every Monday and Tuesday beginning 10pm. 

I honestly don't know how that's supposed to work. Does it air until early morning or are the episodes considerably shorter? Regardless, this should come as welcome news for those who hated the wait in the first place. Ratings seem to have gone up due to the change as the show finally breaks into top ten with an average around 0.6. 


Positions remain relatively unchanged for the rest of the shows with Ode to Joy still leading followed by Fighter of the Destiny and Song of Phoenix. It puzzles me how Song of Phoenix has managed to place as high as it has when it was so bad before. Has it gotten better, somehow? It has also moved up to fifth in terms of web rankings to take the place previously held by Legend of Dragon Pearl.

Meanwhile, Ode to Joy celebrated reaching 5 billion views as of May 20 and its stars are also taking over the Vlinkage rankings to occupy more than half of the list. Luhan still sits firmly at number one while Zhao Li Ying comes in tenth. I'm going to make an early prediction cause I'd bet anything that we'll be seeing ZLY top that once Princess Agents goes on air.

  1. Well done to the Ode to Joy ladies for the continued success.

    That Operation Love scheduling...I wouldn't have thought even the most dedicated fangirl would stay up for 3 hours straight for 2 nights in a row but I guess it worked if the ratings went up!

    The only positive thing I've heard about Song of the Phoenix was for the performance of the actor playing the Emperor.
