TVB Continues Ratings Decline With “Childhood in a Capsule”jessie tan
Premiering on June 27, Childhood in a Capsule <童時愛上你> is making a slight impression on viewers despite a commendable cast starring Samantha Ko (高海寧), Owen Cheung (張振朗), and Ruco Chan (陳展鵬). In its first week of broadcast, the drama received 14.5 points which has dropped 1.5 points in comparison to Brutally Young 2.0’s <十八年後的終極告白2.0> finale week.
Weather conditions did help turn the tide temporarily on the station’s ratings. On July 1, Hong Kong issued a typhoon signal 8, and many were forced to stay home. TVB aired the 25th Gala Anniversary of the Handover <慶祝香港回歸祖國二十五周年文藝晚會>, which received 24.5 points. ViuTV and Hong Kong Open TV also broadcast the same show, and received 1.6 and 1.2 points respectively.
ViuTV’s highest ratings this week came from the movie As the Light Goes Out <救火英雄>, which received 4.9 points in viewership on Saturday night. The Popcorn Show <爆谷一周> followed closely with 3.7 points. Hong Kong Open TV’s highest rated show for the week was Changing Spaces <空間改造王> with 5 points. Movies, In the Storm <黑金風暴> and Stories of Lion Rock Spirit <獅子山下的故事>, both received 2.1 points.
