“100 Days My Prince” And “Where Stars Land” Hold On To Ratings Lead Despite Ups And Downs
The Monday-Tuesday dramas this week experienced some highs and lows in terms of viewership ratings.
On October 24, Nielsen Korea released the viewership ratings recorded by programs that aired the day before. SBS’s “Where Stars Land” took the lead among public broadcast network dramas (KBS, SBS, MBC) with nationwide ratings of 6.7 and 8.6 percent. However, the ratings dropped compared to last week, when it recorded a personal high of 7.4 and 9.2 percent.
In the same time slot, KBS’s “Matrimonial Chaos” came in second with 3.1 and 3.7 percent, which is an improvement from last week but a drop compared to their previous broadcast on October 22.
On the cable side (cable ratings are calculated slightly differently from public broadcasters), tvN’s “100 Days My Prince” achieved a new high. Its October 23 episode got average ratings of 12.7 percent and a peak of 14.3 percent, taking first place in its time slot across all channels.
This is a new personal best for the drama, but also the fifth highest ratings ever recorded by a tvN drama. “100 Days My Prince” also took the highest ratings of its time slot in the tvN target demographic of 20-49-year-olds with an average of 6.7 percent and a peak of 7.6 percent.
