KBS’ weekend TV series “My Husband Got a Family” has kept its dominant position, shattering its own record by breaching the 40 percent mark once again.
The Yoo Jun-sang and Kim Nam-joo starrer solidified its No. 1 status after attracting an average ratings of 42.6 percent during the third week of August, according to data polled by TNmS (Total National Multimedia Statistics) on Monday.
As the chart-topping drama is supposed to wrap up its six month run in three weeks, more and more viewers are keeping their eyes on the series to find out its grand finale of the 58 episode drama.
This week’s episode focused on how the secret regarding Gui-nam’s identity is revealed and his mother Cheong-ae [played by Yoon Yeo-jeong] ran away from home due to the intensity of the matter.
With a noticeable gap behind the top seed, KBS’ weekly series, “Reaching for the Stars” held onto its No. 2 title with an average rating of 26.7 percent in the same time frame.
Going neck-on-neck with “Reaching for the Stars” was the same broadcaster’s comedy program “Gag Concert,” which sat in third place, after drawing in 26.1 percent of total viewers.
Next on the chart, KBS’ Wednesday and Thursday series “Gaksital” and KBS 9 o’clock News each ranked at No. 4 and No. 5, after each attracting 22.3 and 21.1 percent of the viewers during the same time period.
Other TV shows in the top ten include SBS’ variety show “I Like Sundays,” MBC’s “Infinite Challenge, KBS’ “Love in Asia,” SBS’ “Wow How” and KBS’ “VJs on the Scene.”
Meanwhile, AGB Nielson’s data compiled between August 13 and 19 showed the programs in the same order but with slightly different numbers.
The data showed “My Husband” enjoyed its spot on the top of the chart with ratings of 38.7 percent, followed by KBS’ “Reaching for the Stars” and KBS’ “Gag Concert” sitting at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, after posting 24.5 and 22.5 percent last week.
