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

Mr. Right Jin Dong Ratings Chinese drama
Kite and Red Rose finished their run within the top three, leaving Love in Hanyuan to be the only spy drama on primetime as it averages at a much lower 0.5%. Xia Yu's Operation Moscow premiered at 0.3% and slowly inches up through the course of the week. Flipped In My Youth seemed poised to lead until Mr. Right swooped in to break past 1.0% on its first day (can't say I'm surprised, it's headlined by Jin Dong). Not included in the TV Ratings table are the reruns for Best Arrangement and Nirvana in Fire 2, both of which have done well to stay in the top 5.

Untouchable Lovers may breathe some new life to the 10pm dramas as it is off to a decent start at 0.8%. Nirvana in Fire 2 continues to see low numbers on television and places ninth in web rankings. It's been a little more than a week since Tribes and Empires ended but we welcome a new entrant to the weekly celebs rankings that are now led by Huang Xuan in first Shawn Dou in second and Zhou Yi Wei in ninth.

  1. I'm actually pretty surprised NIF2 is doing badly considering how...good in quality it is. Good to see Advisor's Alliance doing well, that show is great.

  2. I am enjoying nirvana in fire 2 more than Tribes And Empires. Tribes and Empires probably had budget problems since the winged people do not have wings most of the time and the underwater people do not look like fish people.

  3. Nirvana in Fire 2 is very good, maybe Liu Rao Ran is too young to hold the audience. Tribes and Empires was a great shit, they deconstructed the main characters, they became like mere helpers.
