CSM59 Cities + Online

Starting Aug 31, Vlinkage has made a change to how they tabulate data online. Daily top 10 now includes iQIYI and Youku dramas even though both sites do not track popularity based on view count. Topping the list is Arsenal Military Academy which aired its VIP finale on iQIYI last week. Most of the TV dramas also make the top 10 with The King of Land Battle coming in second. My Mowgli Boy which airs exclusively on iQIYI ranks in third.

The Legendary Tavern hit a 1.576% rating high on Beijing TV and overtakes The Moon Doesn't Understand My Heart as the leading television drama. The King of Land Battle rounds up the top 3. Novoland: Eagle Flag has ended on Monday with 0.876%. Oh boy, given the complaints about the drama dragging on, it really has seen better days. The Prince of Tennis also finished its run on Wednesday averaging over 1% throughout its run.
