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

Zhao Liying Our Glamorous Time
CSM52 Cities + Online

The Family stayed in 1st place until its series finale last Saturday. With the family drama bowing out of the race, Our Glamorous Time which had one episode left to air managed to reach a series high of 1.002% on its finale last night. It is the leading drama online while both Zhao Liying and Jin Han along with the rather controversial Cao Xiwen rank among the top 10 celebs.  

Meanwhile, Forty Years We Walked has crept up to 3rd several times last week. Another show that seems to have improved a great deal in ratings is The King of Blaze. It averaged this week with 0.6% compared to dismal premiere numbers of 0.3%. It has also overtaken Hi, I'm Saori to take 3rd place online. 

CSM Nationwide

There's been a change in source for nationwide, as I can only find these numbers on Wikipedia now. Rankings will be a bit different as it seems to include CCTV channels. Nevertheless, The Family still took 1st place for most of the week.

  1. Thanks for the ratings. 40 Years We Walked sounds like an interesting plot. Looks like despite the controversies Our Glamorous Time was a success as a leading man vehicle for Jin Han as it got his name out there.

    Good to see Ever Night up there in the rankings. I wonder why Arthur Chen Feiyu is on the hot search suddenly.

    1. Good exposure for Jin Han. Props to ZLY for bringing a newbie in. They had chemistry!

    2. I heard some people saying ZLY said somewhere she didn't even want to work with him, would never work with him again? or some sort... Is that true?

      LOL he's under her agency...at least YM promotes her people and do not say such a thing although her kiddies aren't the best. Plus she keeps making up news that Sun Li is the senior in her agency and did not give her face as the new comer, why would she say that to him after she bring him into the show?

    3. Baseless rumors. Yang Yang and some other idols were rumored to be in OGT, which would have been huge since both stars are A-lister. But ZLY gave the opportunity to Jin Han. That’s why the male lead wasn’t announced til later on.

    4. @anon1.b

      Of course ZLY would've said it as a joke if that's true, besides she's his 'boss', she has no choice but to work with him, on or off screen by supporting him. IMO, she did the right thing by not appearing in the OGT press conferences, otherwise she would be 'stealing his and everyone else's thunder' and especially when she's trying to have him get recognition.

    5. Maybe she just say it to not make FSF feel worrying, the scene at the gym with JH was pretty hot and with plenty of kisses. She's trying to no longer create shippings with her co stars.

  2. Happy for Ever Night and CFY trending. The drama is well made and the fighting scenes are epic.

    1. The Old Spring Pavillion fight is one of the best I have ever seen in a drama.

      I'm glad it's doing well. Now I need Ning Que to hurry up and return back to Sang Sang.
