C-drama Ratings and Celeb Rankings (week starting Feb 19)

Negotiator C-drama Ratings
Another week has passed and Negotiator almost doubles its online viewership to celebrate reaching 7 billion views as of Sunday. It's really the only show worth mentioning right now as many dramas on the weekly rankings are mainly reruns. Memories of Love falls flat being a new show. My Bittersweet Taiwan premiered mid-week to equally poor reception. 

As for web rankings, rising star Liu Haoran jumps to third. He doesn't have a drama on the air, so I'm guessing that his popularity must be due to the action comedy movie Detective Chinatown 2 which was released on Lunar New Year. The Legend of Dugu is a new web drama starring Hu Bingqing, Zhang Danfeng, Ady An and Jeremy Tsui, and it is off to a good start, placing in sixth on its first week.

  1. I am just watching old dramas like In The Name Of The People, Oh My General and Legend Of The Dragon Pearl. The acting in Negotiator is not that good.

  2. I find it interesting that this site does not often me tion Untouchable Lovers.

  3. Thanks for the ratings!

    Glad to see Liu Haoran climbing up the ranks. He is so talented.
    Wonder why 10 Miles of Peach Blossoms in back in the top 10 web rankings?
    Tried to watch the first episode of Memories of Love but I couldn't get into it at all.

    1. I have no idea, found it weird too. Thought I got the wrong drama for a second but it definitely said TMOPB.

    2. LOL! How random. Maybe Negotiator made people nostalgic for another Yang Mi drama.
