Update: Changes to Weekly Ratings Posts

There are some upcoming changes to drama airing days and time slots by the networks, so fewer dramas are directly going head to head in ratings now. Because of this, for the time being, I’m going to phase out doing weekly ratings updates of the public network dramas.

Instead, I will do ratings updates for a few dramas when there is a particular achievement such as a strong premiere/finale, reaching double digits, setting a record, etc. as well as maybe following the full ratings journey of a drama here and there. This could change in the future depending on how drama schedules shape up, but for now I wanted to give you a heads up as to what to expect concerning ratings updates. Thank you for reading!
