TVB’s highly anticipated drama Forensic Heroes 4 <法證先鋒IV> did not disappoint and it premiered with a high rating of 33 points with 2.15 million viewers on Monday. Broadcasting simultaneously in China, the drama sets TVB’s record for the highest-rated premiere since 2012.
With high ratings and good reviews, Raymond Wong (黃浩然) and Selena Lee (李施嬅) who play the leading roles are overjoyed with the drama’s success.
In an interview, Raymond responded, “Happy! Of course, I’m very happy. Producer Mui Siu Ching (梅小青) sent me a message today and told me the ratings are very good. She didn’t tell me what the ratings were and wanted to wait for the company to announce it. The fans’ reactions are good. My friends said they enjoyed watching it. I hope that the ratings will continue to rise and reach 40 points. This is Mui Siu Ching’s last work before she retires, and the strong rating is a nice keepsake. I also hope that this drama brings a bit of entertainment to the audience during the coronavirus outbreak.”
This drama is also Selena’s last collaboration with TVB before she ended her contract. Regarding her work, Selena shared, “It is emotional to receive such a high rating for my final work. This drama is also Mui Siu Ching’s final drama before her retirement, so I hope it will keep the high ratings. In a few days, I will be flying to Canada, and I will continue to watch it on the Internet. During the outbreak, it’s good that everyone can stay home. I hope there is a drama that will help everyone to relax. Like Barrack O’Karma <金宵大廈>, I am happy. Thank you to everyone who is watching this drama.”
Other High Rating Dramas
It is believed that coronavirus outbreak resulted in a sharp rise in TVB evening programs’ ratings as viewers avoided travelling and stayed indoors.
Several TVB programs are currently enjoying higher ratings and they include: Come Home Love: Lo and Behold <愛·回家之開心速遞> at 30.8 points, Scoop <東張西望> at 26.6 points and The Dripping Sauce <大醬園> at 29.3 points. While it is rare for dramas to exceed 30 points in recent years, it is likely that the three programs will exceed 30 points after calculating the seven-day average across the different platforms.
