Weekly ratings recap and a look at the upcoming Golden Bell Awards

Just when we thought “Endless Love” was ready to make a move, it was back to the bottom again after placing second two weeks ago. The Will Pan-Sandrine Pinna drama scored 0.93% for last Sunday’s episode. “4 Gifts” improved to third with 1.02%, behind the consistent “Personal Preference” in second with 1.06%. “Zhong Wu Yen” is still in front with 2.28%, but these numbers are probably categorized as dismal by SETTV/TTV standards.

Last Saturday’s variety shows featured some big names from the music industry. Surprisingly, or maybe not surprising at all, Jeannie Hsieh’s appearance on “Variety Big Brother” came out on top. The show scored 2.19% and placed 4th overall for the night. “Million Singer” welcomed special guest Kenji Wu but it only averaged a disappointing 1.76% (5th overall). Nevertheless, it still fared much better than “Super King”. The struggling show was last in its time slot with 1.20% (8th overall) despite a performance/interview featuring Eason Chan.

All eyes will be on this Friday’s Golden Bell Awards (for television.) The awards ceremony for radio took place last Friday and finished only 5 minutes behind the schedule. TTV will try to do this again this week after their Golden Melody broadcast was heavily criticized back in June. There are still plenty of familiar names and well-deserved nominations to be excited about regardless of who were snubbed.

Here are some highlights of the nominees; let us know who you think the lucky winners will be:
