Gumiho Girlfriend gains (a little) ground on Baker King
Last week, Baker King Kim Tak-gu on KBS scored fantastic numbers with a 44.9% rating (TNS Media) to My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho‘s 12.7% on SBS. This Wednesday, the numbers were 44.0% to 14.6% as Gumiho benefits from word of mouth (and exceptional rerun numbers) for its fresh plot and delightfully funny storytelling.
The AGB numbers are slightly different from TNS ratings but follow the same general pattern; they give last week’s numbers as 10.2% and 10.8% for Gumiho, with an 11.4% for this week. Baker King‘s AGB numbers went from a 42.3% and 42.6% last week to a 41.9% this Wednesday. (Note: There are two sources of numbers for drama ratings, TNS and AGB Nielsen, and I don’t think it matters too much as long as you’re consistent about which numbers you’re using. The overall trends will tell the story.)
Personally, I think Baker King Kim Tak-gu will remain far ahead in first place on Wednesdays and Thursdays until it ends next month, given its massive head start, but I also suspect that Gumiho will continue to slowly creep up in the ratings. The latest numbers show a big enough difference to take note of, but small enough that we can’t jump to conclusions.
Road No. 1 continues to languish in distant third place at 4.6%.
