C-drama Ratings and Celeb Rankings (week starting Jul 2)

Lost in 1949 managed to keep CSM52 ratings consistently above 1% on its last leg. The show has been among the top dramas throughout its run though never quite enough to take the win. Patriot landed in first on its final day of airing after pulling in a series high of 1.278%. 

Sweet Dreams still retained the lead for most of the week, but recent finales have paved the way for a changeup in the rankings. The newly-premiered Mask easily emerges as a top contender with CSM52 ratings as high as 1.388%. CSMNationwide continues to be dominated by Sweet Dreams which has just crossed 2.0%. 

Legend of Fuyao edges closer to breaking 1% in tv viewership ratings. It is still the top drama online as web rankings haven't seen much movement except for Legend of Yunxi which has climbed a few spots up to third. Zhang Zhehan joins leading lady Ju Jingyi in the top ten celebs. The Drug Hunter which just premiered as a primetime drama also made it to eight place.
