"The Empress of China" finale peaks at 37 PTS; First place in ratings for the year so far

 

The night before, the finale of "The Empress of China", starring Fan Bing Bing and Aarif Lee, was broadcasted in Hong Kong. The ratings claimed success, peaking at 37 PTS and averaged at 33 PTS! The two leads expressed their gratification, Aarif responded: "Thank you so much to the Hong Kong audience for supporting our drama. Hope I will have more productions to bring to the Hong Kong audience again." And yesterday, when he and Joey were in Mainland to promote their Chinese variety show, they excitedly sang "The Empress of China" theme song (sung by Joey Yung) to celebrate. Apparently, the good ratings are on par with the successful "Triumph in the Skies II" in 2013. "The Empress of China" now holds the top place in ratings of all the dramas this year. As for the complaints that the Hong Kong version's cutting (of the drama) does not link up the plot well enough, TVB's Communications Deputy Director, Tsang Sing Ming replied: "Actually, the version that we were given is just like that. We did not cut anything at all, and even inserted some flashback scenes." TVB also plans to release a BluRay set of the drama for fans to collect. More details will be announced later.

 

"Brick Slaves" will resonate with the audience

 

TVB originally planned to broadcast "The Misadventure of Zoo" after "The Master of Destiny" in August. However, considering that the 75 episode "The Empress of China" has just finished airing, they are worried that the audience may be a bit tired of ancient dramas for now, so instead, TVB has decided to release the drama "Brick Slaves", starring Vincent Wong, Selena Lee and Eliza Sam. The story of the drama revolves around the problems of the real estate market in Hong Kong, which will resonate with the audience quite well.

 

"Brick Slaves" will air on August 3rd.

The empresses of China are pretty and powerful. Only a few of empress can be succeed. They are all very pretty and smart. Most of them could not last long because they trust the wrong helpers.

the highest ratings for this year is an oversea drama.

 

You mean from Mainland. But if you remove the "for this year" part, it would have been a true statement.

Although it was a long drama series, really enjoyed. Thanks to TVB screening it almost daily. The ancient costumes were beautifully displayed. Glad it got the highest rating this year.

I wonder when TVB will broadcast some decent films? Seems like the series just keep getting worse and worse ...

This series was extremely good and fully deserved the 37 points at the end. A good result even when it has already been aired in China!

Just finished the drama. I wonder if it weight at least 10lbs to carry those costumes. Anyway, the ending is very sad...

Glad to see that can use old time drama to boost the rating for TVB.
