Rating Drama Prime Minister N I
Despite the mostly positive response to Lee Bum Soo and YoonA‘s “Prime Minister and I,” it continues its third-place position for its second episode, with MBC’s “Empress Ki” continuing its domination of the airwaves.
According to ratings agency, Nielsen Korea, ratings for the December 10 broadcast of MBC Monday-Tuesday drama “Empress Ki” Episode 14 recorded a 19.5% viewership nationwide, a slight drop of 0.7% from Monday’s Episode 13 20.2% rating.
Taking a nice turn for the better, KBS’ Prime Minister and I made its way up, scooting into second place.
On Monday night, Prime Minster and I jumped from 5.4 percent to 7.3 percent, pushing SBS’ A Warm Word to the bottom.
The rise seemed to occur as the drama entered into the story’s main attraction, where the Prime Minster and a gossip newspaper reporter finally talk about holding a contract marriage.
“Empress Ki” continued to maintain strong ratings this week.
