Drama viewership ratings for the week of May 6-12, 2019

New shows! New shows everywhere! So let’s see where they stand. On Monday, we had the premieres of The Secret Life of My Secretary and Abyss. Both brought in 3 percent ratings, but they mean very different things considering the fact that the former is on a major broadcaster and the latter on cable.

After its pre-emption last week, Doctor Prisoner came back to claim its number one spot. The hit drama has been stalled around 14 percent, so I’m interested to see if its finale next week will bring in more viewers. Meanwhile, there were two drama sequels (both OCN) that joined the mix.

Weekend drama A Beautiful World has been performing very well throughout its run, and this week was no different; it pulled a solid 4.6 percent on Saturday. And finally, fellow weekend drama and legal thriller Confession ended after 16 episodes, with some great numbers too.

1.4% seems very low for Save me 2 and unfair to the excellent cast!
But i can see why: the first 2 episodes were really slow.

Voice 3's rating is pretty solid! Hope it continues to rise.
The first episode was great. So suspenseful and scary!

Right now, Doctor Prisoner is my favorite drama. Every episode leaves you hanging. I can hardly wait to see what the finale brings.

I am a little disappointed with the ratings for Her Private Life, but the competition is fierce on that night. Confession looks like it is getting a little bit of love, which it deserves.

What's considered decent ratings for cable? Well, really what I'm wondering is: is Her Private Life doing badly? I know so many people who love that show; I was surprised to see such low ratings...

I would say ratings for Her Private Life are low for tvN. To compare, What's Wrong With Secretary Kim averaged 7.446%. If the people who love that show are international fans, then they are not contributing to the ratings.
