“Life on the Line” On Its Way to Be TVB’s No. 1 Drama of the Year
Hong Kong weekly ratings are finally out, and it looks like we may have a new TVB gem in our hands.
Yesterday, TVB officially released the ratings reports for the week of October 15th to 21st. According to the report, TVB’s new drama Life on the Line <跳躍生命線>, starring Joe Ma (馬德鐘) and Matthew Ho (何廣沛), has maintained its place as number one on the list, pushing nearly 30 points on viewership ratings.
Last week, the television drama about Hong Kong paramedics debuted at number one in viewership ratings at a decent 26.9 points. This week, Life on the Line rose to an average of 29.8 points, with an average of 1.9 million live viewers in Hong Kong per episode.
The drama’s rise in popularity is reflective of the positive feedback that it is getting among critics and netizens. Viewers praised the drama for being a good reflection of the role of paramedics and does not include much unnecessary fluff (at least, so far). It is very likely that Life on the Line will overtake Deep in the Realm of Conscience <宮心計2深宮計>, which is currently the highest-rated Hong Kong television drama of the year.
In related news, Roger Kwok (郭晉安) and Frankie Lam’s (林文龍) Another Era <再創世紀> has also seen an increase in ratings last weeks, averaging 23 points. Another Era has already aired its last episode this past Sunday.
