“Where Stars Land” Achieves New Personal Best, “Mama Fairy And The Woodcutter” Premieres With Promising Ratings
The battle for viewership ratings on Monday-Tuesday nights is heating up!
On November 6, SBS’s “Where Stars Land” achieved a personal best in viewership ratings with 7.2 percent during episode 19 and 9.5 percent during episode 20 according to Nielsen Korea.
The drama’s highest viewership ratings up until this point was 9.2 percent during its October 16 broadcast. Many viewers are now looking to see if “Where Stars Land” can record double digits in viewership ratings next.
KBS2’s “Matrimonial Chaos” recorded 2.7 percent and 3.9 percent while MBC’s “Bad Papa” did not air due to the 2018 KBO League Korea Series.
tvN’s “Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter” premiered at 9:30 p.m. KST and is off to a promising start. While ratings for cable programs are aggregated slightly differently, the new series topped dramas in its time slot with a national average viewership of 5.6 percent and a peak of 7.0 percent. This is a new record for the highest viewership rating for the premiere of a Monday-Tuesday drama from tvN. “100 Days My Prince” previously held the record with a rating of 5.0 percent.
“Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter” also drew in tvN’s target audience of viewers aged 20 to 49 with an average of 3.3 percent and a peak of 4 percent among this age group.
JTBC’s “The Beauty Inside” saw a slight increase in viewership ratings. According to Nielsen Korea, it received 4.1 percent in viewership ratings, which is an increase of 0.5 percent from its previous episode and only 0.2 percent away from its personal best of 4.3 percent.
The drama succeeded in rebounding from two consecutive episodes of declining viewership ratings and reentered the 4 percent range in ratings.
