The race tightens even further between Sign, Princess
Yowsa, and I thought the race was tight yesterday, with only 0.2% separating the top two dramas. Thursday’s episode narrowed the gap even further, with Sign just barely hanging onto the lead by 0.1% — it pulled in a 17.7% over My Princess‘s 17.6%.
What’s even more impressive is that both dramas rose from their premieres (16.1% and 15.9%, respectively); those numbers would be solid even if their competition were much weaker, but to have TWO dramas approaching 20% at the same time is not all that common.
Sadly, those points have to come from somewhere, and KBS’s President dropped to 7.7%.
I wonder if Sign and My Princess are cutting into each other’s audiences and could have been even higher without the other rival getting in the way (as I suspect was the case for Dong Yi versus Giant last year, and have always wondered with big-time showdowns like My Girl versus Goong). Or, perhaps with their very different subject matter and tone, the two dramas present the perfect counterprogramming options for each other.
In any case, I’m loving My Princess so far, and will have to get back to you after I’ve had a chance to give Sign a good watch.
