Earning the top spot, Forensic Heroes 3 averaged 36 points in ratings for the entire series, while Lives of Omission <潛行狙擊> came in the second spot, averaging 31 points in ratings. “Pro Sir” Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) toppled over “Laughing Sir” Michael Tse (謝天華)!
Yesterday, TVB announced the ratings results for Forensic Heroes 3. The 2-hour finale averaged 40 points in ratings, with approximately 2.56 million Hong Kong viewers tuning in to watch.

TVB’s Deputy Director of External Affairs, Tsang Sing Ming (曾醒明), announced that starting with the broadcast of Forensic Heroes 3, the viewer ratings will include the 3 points in ratings from My TV, which boosted the total ratings of Forensic Heroes 3 to 36 points. The revised tabulation in viewer ratings will be supplied to advertisers going forward. A celebration was held yesterday to acknowledge the success of Forensic Heroes 3. TVB executive, Norman Leung (梁乃鵬), announced that another celebratory banquet will be held for the Forensic Heroes 3 cast and crew in December.
The plot of Forensic Heroes 3 was quite logical since its broadcast. However, netizens laughed at the ending episode, in which Kate Tsui (徐子珊) and Ron Ng (吳卓羲) chased criminals from the day through night time. In another scene, the central characters walked in a catwalk fashion to investigate cases in the Central district. Discerning users noted that Kate and Ron belonged to the Crime Bureau Investigation Unit of Kowloon West, yet their caseload involved the entire Hong Kong New Territories region.
