CSM59 Cities + Online

Historical drama Ming Dynasty is nearing its end with stellar rankings on television. It continues to lead in CSM59 viewership while also placing second in web rankings. One of its stars, Deng Jiajia, managed to rank 10th in the celebrity list. Second in rankings is the newly-premiered New World which is already showing remarkable numbers and even hit 2.016%. It also snatches the 6th place online. Hmm, will this new show prove to be as good as Ming Dynasty in terms of numbers? 

Meanwhile, both modern romance dramas Still Not Enough and Rebirth of Shopping Addict continue to project numbers above the 1% threshold.

We've got a mix of period and modern dramas online. The nostalgic yet controversial sitcom iPartment 5 takes the lead. It's star Li Jiahang also enters the celebrity list in 9th place. Under The Power steps up one rank higher than last week while its main leads Ren Jialun and Tan Songyun rank 1st and 5th respectively. The previously reigning Joy of Life steps down to 4th place while the much awaited Ever Night sequel enters in 8th.

  1. Is there anyone know why Tang Wei is not on the list? Is it bevause of her past scandal? I only watched a view episode and she's quite good. She also has good chemistry with male lead.

    1. It's just the list is on the idol and popularity side, and Tang Wei is a more serious and mature actress. Also, it's not a breakout role for her. There is not much to talk about.

  2. I know she is a more serious actress, but the drama is centered arround her character. So it's a pity she doesn't gain more popularity even though i think she is popular. In my opinion she is underappreciated.
