C-drama Ratings and Celeb Rankings (week starting Oct 15)

Battle Through The Heavens Wu Lei Poster
Battle Through The Heavens is down to its last few episodes. Even though CSM52 ratings peaked at 0.9% on its first week of airing, the show managed to average at 0.68% for the remainder of its run. It's doing better against All Out Of Love and Extreme Youth which are both shows on the same time 10pm time slot. 

Mother's Life ends with a CSM52 series high of 2.373% and CSMNationwide nearing 2.0%. For a show that has made a very public stand on fake ratings, it has been exceptionally favored by the same. The Story of Zheng Yang Gate takes its place with another story that has a similarly female-centric theme. Zheng Yang Gate has broken past CSM52 ratings of 1.0% throughout the week. 

The newly-ended Ruyi's Royal Love in the Palace and the soon-to-end Battle Through The Heavens retain the top two places online. Entrepreneurial Age which sits in third place this week might just move up to take the lead online. Angelababy makes the celeb list in #10. It's been a week since Zhao Liying's wedding announcement and she's back on top 10 too.

  1. It's worth noting "Battle Through The Heavens" is doing better in the csm52 but nationwide "All Out of Love" has better numbers. Maybe you should post just one set of numbers. What's the difference between the two?

    1. no, you're right. It's coz most ppl look at CSM52. I used to look solely at CSM52 but got a request from readers wanting to see CSMNationwide too. Let me think about it for the next post:)

  2. Watching All Out Of Love and If Paris Downcast. If Paris Downcast might be slightly more believable than All Out Of Love.

  3. just wondering why isnt if paris downcast on the ratings list?

    1. They didn't buy fake ratings, I'm looking for something to watch and all these "top" things do not interest me at all.

      ZLY forgot to buy ratings for FSF too so both their names can be up there lol, she hasn't been working at all but there were only news of her marriage. If she's going back up because of that news, shouldn't FSF be up there as well then? I don't like FSF, not saying he needs to be on that lame list, just giving an example of how ridiculous these ratings can be.
