Temperature of Love Premieres to Mon-Tues Ratings Win Despite Not Breaking 10% Ratings

A win is a win so I’m sure SBS is happy that it’s latest Mon-Tues offering continues the network dominance in that time slot. With that said, Temperature of Love premiered with 7.1% and 8.0% AGB nationwide ratings in the first two episodes, enough to lead the competition but it’s a sad state of affairs when none of the prime time dramas broke 10%. Second place A King Loves is heading towards a tomorrow and the penultimate episodes brought in 5.8% and 6.8% ratings, while over on KBS the 8-episode Lingerie Girls (Girls Generation 1979) garnered 4.1% ratings for episode 3.
