The popularity of the new KBS drama “Producer” is clear not only in the show’s soaring ratings, but also in its high content power index. A content power index for a show is a figure calculated by the combined news subscriptions, searches, and social media buzz for shows that are aired on both network and cable television.
According to a report by CJ E&M on May 26, “Producer” held the top spot with its content power index for the second week of May, with a total index of 260.9 points.
In second place was the MBC song competition show “King of Mask Singer,” which tends to garner a lot of speculation every week about its contestants’ identities. In third place was tvN‘s “Three Meals a Day.” The producer of the latter show, the celebrated Na Young Suk, said before “Producer” first aired that he was concerned about his show having to compete with the much-hyped drama.
In fourth place for the week of May was SBS‘s “The Girl Who Sees Smells,” which is a big drop from the previous week when it held first place. The KBS drama “Orange Marmalade” took the last spot in the top five.
