CSM59 Cities + Online

We say goodbye to the consistent frontrunner in the list as A Little Reunion finished its run on Tuesday. The Moon Doesn't Understand My Heart may have had a not-so-good start but it's performing well this week, setting a record of 1.521% to dominate as the new leading drama. Meanwhile, The King of Land Battle, When We Are Together and The Legendary Tavern premiered on the same day.

The Prince of Tennis retains its good numbers above 1% but Novoland: Eagle Flag has a minor dip with ratings going down from 1% to .9%.

There has been a change to how Vlinkage's online rankings are tabulated starting Aug 31. Hence, we have only looked at the numbers until August 30 which are based on online views.  As expected, A Little Reunion ranks in 1st. The King's Avatar trails in 2nd and takes the crown as the leading web dramaProject S: Side By Side finally enters the top 10. It's been trying to for the last couple of weeks but was always a few rankings short. Hunan TV's new primetime drama When We Are Together takes the tenth spot. Yang Yang leads the actor rankings as The King's Avatar comes to an end while Victoria Song snatches up the 6th spot following her new drama. Yang Chaoyue completes the list in the tenth spot.

  1. Thanks for the ratings. Seems ratings are pretty strong recently.

    I wanted to try The Moon Doesn't Understand My Heart but Victoria's horrible dead-eyed acting in that drama with Johnny Huang scared me off. I hope her acting has improved for this drama.

    1. Just watch first before talk..her acting skill amazing/improve alot

    2. Lol she wasn't even bad in Moonshine and Valentine. I even thought she did better than Johnny.
      And her acting improved heaps in her current drama. But the plot is not interesting...

    3. Yeah, she's improved a lot now. But I agree the drama is so boring. What a waste of good actors. The drama is so damn depressing. If you're into that genre then you might like it.

    4. OK OK. If you all say her acting has improved then I will give it a try lol! I don't believe her acting could possibly be worse than it was in Moonshine and Valentine anyway.

  2. How about yanxi and ma tianyu' drama?? How about their rating?

    1. Hi. It's doing good but given that it premiered in the middle of the week, it didn't reach the top 10 webdramas.
