For its first week of broadcast, TVB’s Death by Zero <殺手> managed to garner excellent reviews and ratings, breaking the record that was previously set by 2017’s A Fistful Within Four Walls <城寨英雄>. For the week ending July 3, Death by Zero earned an average of 29.2 viewership ratings points –the drama now holds the record for having the highest-rated premiere broadcast week since 2017.
Unlike any other drama that the station has produced, Death by Zero is the first drama that centers around a group of professional contract killers. Besides the interesting plot and fresh storyline, the award-winning cast consisting of Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Moses Chan (陳豪), and Ali Lee (李佳芯) brought to life their vibrant characters.
Life After Death’s <那些我愛過的人> ratings were 28 viewership points in its third week of broadcast. The ratings for its finale week are not released yet, but they are expected to climb due to viewers being emotionally invested in the drama and its good word-of-mouth.
The airing of both popular dramas, Death by Zero and Life After Death, seem to have boosted the viewership for Come Home Love: Lo and Behold <愛•回家之開心速遞>. Although the long-running sitcom dropped in ratings recently, it also managed to make a turnaround with 25.6 viewership points.
