TVB released its weekly ratings report for the week ending January 16, and there has been a rise in viewership across the board. One of the reasons cited for the overall increase is tighter restaurant dining restrictions implemented due to worsening COVID-19 cases, which resulted in more viewers staying home to watch television. Supernatural drama Used Good <異搜店>, which stars Matthew Ho (何廣沛) and Hera Chan (陳曉華), performed especially well.
In its last week of broadcast, Used Good received 25.5 points in weekly ratings. The final episode achieved 28 viewership ratings points, which is the highest-rated episode among TVB dramas since August 2020. The drama received an average of 22.3 points during its four-week broadcast, and is the third highest rated series aired in the 8:30 p.m. timeslot since January 2021.
In 2021, the drama with the highest overall ratings is Ruco Chan’s (陳展鵬) Sinister Beings <逆天奇案> with 24.7 points. Naturally, Ruco’s new drama The Righteous Fists <鐵拳英雄> had high expectations entering its broadcast. Starring Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), Elaine Yiu (姚子羚), and Joel Chan (陳山聰), the drama took over the 9:30 p.m. time slot from Hello Misfortune <愛上我的衰神> and achieved an average of 21.7 points in its first week on air.
Longtime sitcom, Love Come Home: Lo and Behold <愛．回家之開心速遞>, continued to hold up ratings at 26 points, which is 2.3 points higher than the prior week.
Weekend dramas and shows also saw a rise. Forever Young at Heart <青春本我> received 16.5 points; Family Feud <思家大戰> received 19.3 points; and Master Chef Challenge Working <教煮爭霸> received 14.4 points.
