Drama viewership ratings for the week of Aug. 24-30, 2020

Pre-emptions all across the board last week. I’m sure that, by now, everyone’s heard of Covid-19 infiltrating the entertainment business, and Men Are Men was one of the productions hit. Still, the drama will be airing its final two episodes this week. Was it Love and Graceful Friends, both of which only aired one episode last week, will be airing their finales soon as well.

Amidst all the craziness, we had two dramas premiere — Alice and Missing: The Other Side. Both performed rather well, with Alice even jumping from 6.1 percent to 9.2 percent. Backtracking a bit, we had The Good Detective wrap up with its highest numbers, 7.6 and 7.5 percent. The drama’s numbers were strong all the way through, and it’s great to see it land just as strong.

More dramas (and ratings) coming. We’re gonna get a good mix of fluffy shows and serious shows, so I look forward to seeing how they fare. Though, as we’ve seen in previous posts, the fluffy shows haven’t had much luck lately.

Congrats to The Good Detective's success! Pity the finale couldn't get the highest ratings. I went into this show with no expectations, and it unexpectedly became one of my favorite dramas of the year. I love every member of Violent Crimes Team 2. "Why does he have no family? We're his family." Also, finger hearts for Lawyer So.

Like you THE GOOD DETECTIVE is one of my favorites of the year. Now this is one drama that deserves the Netflix treatment of another series. Please, TGD 2.

Alice got high on second episode! Great job.

Same as FoE (Flower of Evil) and Once Again.

Once Again still top in overall drama ratings.

I think I'm a pretty easy-to-please viewer. But after watching Alice ep 2, I have no idea how ratings went up 3%.

Guess I was just in the right kind of mood for action and scifi. So I really like it.
