So it’s not a zero sum game like terrestrial ratings where a TV tuned to one channel cannot watch another. With that said, the pressure is on for top actress Yang Mi who has her xianxia drama Fox Spirit Matchmaker finished since last year but still waiting an airing slot. It’s a tentpole drama for iQiyi so the platform is strategically scheduling the airing. But C-insiders are saying that Yang Mi is feeling the heat because her same gen same level actresses have all come back big with their most recent dramas – Liu Shi Shi with A Journey to Love, Tang Yan with Blossoms Shanghai, and Zhao Li Ying with The Legend of Shen Li.
