Love Thy Ratings

Lessons Ch 8 can learn from their most-watched drama serials of 2011 thus far.

For the record

Top 3 dramas of 2011:

1. Love Thy Neighbour (*941,000)
2. C.L.I.F (924,000)
3. A Tale of 2 Cities (904,000)

Online (via xinmsn’s Catch-Up TV):

1. On the Fringe II (*1.37mil)
2. The In-Laws (over 1 mil)
3. C.L.I.F (over 900,000)

(*Numbers refers to average viewership/clicks)

1. For better or For Worse Hog the Headlines

They came, they saw, they complained. Love Thy Neighbour and On the Fringe II aren’t just Ch 8 dramas that people had the most grouses about. They also ranked tops in viewership so far this year. Hit a raw nerve by extolling the sensitivities about living next door to foreigners? By all means. Co-stars who engage in a passive-aggressive spat over a ‘rape’ scene? Why not? Who’s getting the last laugh now?

2. The Rui En – Joanne Peh Factor

Rui En hogged the screens with On the Fringe II, A Tale of 2 Cities and The In-Laws, while Joanne Peh kicked butt in C.L.I.F and A Tale of 2 Cities.

Idle drama

We imagine what the ultimate Ch 8 ratings winner could look like.

Brothers and teen idol boyband duo trying to break into the regional market
+
Leticia Bongnino, long-suffering maid and occassional bodyguard / personal assistant to the boyband. She is later found dead, stabbed by her waiter boyfriend
X
Slave-driver, employer of Leticia and devious older sister and manager of boyband brother duo
+
Human rights activist, cop-in-charge of investigating Leticia’s case, and Rui En’s childhood arch-nemesis who’ll never let her get away with murder
=
Ratings gold!

Sometimes it takes only a sneak peek into someone else’s world to make you realize a lot about your own.

That was my experience over the few days doing door-knocking with Beyond Social Services from 10th Oct 2011.

I’d previously volunteered at their now-defunct home in Woodlands, when they asked me to do this door-knocking I was happy to be able to help them.

The purpose of this door-knocking was literally to go from door to door in a low-income neighbourhood of temporary housing along Havelock Road to have the most visceral experience of talking directly to the occupants and finding out how many youths under the age of 19 years old were there in Block 29. I’d always felt helpless and not involved enough somehow doing charity appearances and performances, and this was my first chance to get down to the grassroots level, something I’d always wanted.

本报记者洪铭铧与本月20日在《为本地剧把脉开方》一文,从创作与制作,省钱和竞争,演员与人事结构四方面探讨本地剧到底出了什么问题,本地剧是否越来越难以保持竞争等问题,新传媒昨天来函作出数点澄清,全文照刊如下:

8频道作为大众娱乐频道,在传播内容上扮演着兼具娱乐大众与教育观众的角色,为范围广大的观众群提供服务。

戏剧中的对白必须反映故事中人物的生活形态,如以青少年为主的《边缘父子》,剧中少年主角的对白,就是时下年轻人的写照。

在今年的2011年中国国际影视节目展,中国国际电视总公司也向新传媒购买了高达141小时的本地剧,这包括了《麻婆斗妇》、《乐在双城》、《阿娣》、《甘榜情》和《星洲之夜》等。

有关艺人培训方面,我们也配合了艺人的档期为他们提供课程,传授作为专业艺人必须具备的各种基本知识与技能,让他们在技艺上有更全方位的提升。授课教练都是来自中港台与本地演艺圈的专业领域,如艺人夏雨与郭亮等。

另外,我们也邀请海内外的资深戏剧创作同仁,为新传媒的编剧与故事人开班授课,也会在近期落实与亚洲顶尖学院的创作交流与分享计划。

新传媒作为本地民众最主要的娱乐管道,我们会不断自我鞭策,希望在节目上能日益精进,努力去制作更好的节目来回馈观众。今天的观众不乏娱乐选择,8频道的戏剧能持续领先众多娱乐平台,取得的可观收视 是观众给予我们的肯定。9点档本地剧今年推出更多题材新颖的剧种,播出至今(尚有写实剧《行医》与年终歌舞重头剧《星洲之夜》未播)就已平均吸引87万名观众,比去年的平均85万9000名观众还要高。

《警徽天职》、《乐在双城》与《四个门牌一个梦》都突破90万观众大关,比去年的两部剧《我在你左右》与《红白喜事》还多。在网上xinmsn收看9点档本地剧就有播放次数突破百万纪录的《边缘父子》与《警徽天职》,深受年轻人喜爱的《边缘父子》更有超过130万的纪录。

8频道的戏剧必须能吸引“普罗大众”,在考虑观众喜好的当儿,也希望能让观众有多样化的选择。为欢庆明年“戏剧情牵30周年”,8频道也将推出一系列的戏剧如悬疑剧《最火搭档2》、校园剧《我等你》、民防剧《995》、职业男女剧《再见单人床》;众星云集的60年代娱乐圈重头剧《花样人间》,以及有关先辈南来新加坡的《唐山到南洋》年终大制作。

谢谢你的意见与关注,我们将会持续努力,尽力达到多样化观众群的各样需求,制作更多阖家共赏的好节目给观众。

新传媒8频道品牌与宣传副总裁
陈国明

The Big Three-Oh, Joy!

How do you turn 30 in style? By inviting your friends from out of town to join in the party.

The soiree in this case is Joys of Life, a Ch 8 mega-production to commemorate 30 years of local Chinese drama. Taiwanese multi-hyphenatos Xiao Gui (or, um, Alien Huang) and Cynthia Wang Xin Ru are in on the act. Set in the ’60s and ’70s, the story will allude to well-known entertainers of the day like Sakura Teng and comedy icons Wang Sha and Ye Feng. Joining the two foreign talents is a heavyweight local cast. Think of it as the TV version of Great, Great World, if you will. There’s Chew Chor Meng, Yvonne Lim, Zheng Geping, Chen Liping and Pan Lingling et al, plus whispers of a romance between Zhang Yaodong and Rui-en – onscreen lah. Now that’s what we call drama.

Joys of Life 花样人间 debuts June 2012 9pm on Channel 8.

新戏再见花样 来势汹汹

都市男女婚姻恋爱故事,热闹温馨怀旧重头剧,明年排队上场。

议论声中,《四个门牌一个梦》收视冲破百万大关;《警徽天职》和《乐在双城》亦个别吸引超过90万观众观看。本地剧今年全力发功,8频道9点黄金档剧播出至今,已平均吸引87万名观众,超越了去年平均85万9000观众人数。

2012年,新戏剧种百花齐放,期待电视公仔箱再见惊喜。

年轻偶像 助阵《花样人间》

继《春到人间》和《福满人间》之后的第三部曲,相隔9年登场。

延续50、60年代背景的年度大制作,演员人选备受瞩目。

重头剧绝缘体瑞恩演出温婉但个性坚强,自小忍受养父母林梅娇和黄文永动辄打骂的楚楚可怜孝顺女。

监制王尤红谈及这个角色时说:“一开始我们想找一个楚楚可怜、瘦弱的女生,瑞恩的外形很符合形象。戏里她穿的都是爸爸不穿的旧衣服,中性装扮应该会让人眼前一亮。”

《花样人间》预计于明年6月播映,其他演员包括张耀栋、陈罗密欧、郑各评、陈莉萍、陈邦鋆、庞蕾馨等。

音乐大补贴

5年前的第二届《新加坡偶像》对梁伟矿而言,是人生的转折点。

如今迟了5年才发片,他并不担心,反认为这些年的准备是必要的磨炼。

演唱 VS 写词,哪个比较难? 虽然全部的歌都花了很长的时间录制,但是唱歌最重要是传达故事内容,所以还好。但写词比较难,因为要找对押韵,所以为了写歌我翻了好多好多词典,还好有瑞恩帮忙写了5首,哈!她专辑的歌词都是自己写的,而且又是同公司,所以就找她帮忙。

7点档本地剧靠《甘榜情》收复失地?

告别港剧、台湾本土剧《爱》,8频道7点档进行大革新。《甘榜情》打头炮后,接下来还有《正义武馆》、《渔米人家》,《断掌的女人》和《猪仔馆》共150小时的本地剧“进攻”7点档!

为保护嗓子 梁伟矿不烟不酒

《新加坡偶像》比赛后,他重返校园完成大学学业,毕业后尝试写歌,也花了很多时间打好音乐制作的基础。师姐瑞恩“拔笔相助”为梁伟矿写词 — 《多一次机会》。他笑说:“是我自己厚脸皮去问的,她答应试一试,刚好歌路能配合。”

During its run on MediaCorp’s Channel 8 the past four weeks, much has been discussed about Love Thy Neighbour’s scripted dialogue and representation of locals and foreigners. Despite the wide discussion on the drama, the show has been attracting a steady stream of viewers, even surpassing the one-million viewership mark on Oct 13.

According to Paul Chan, vice-president of MediaCorp Channel 8 Branding & Promotions, viewership rating for Love Thy Neighbour has already surpassed the 900,000 mark — even before the series ends concludes on Monday. It joins the ranks of police drama series C.L.I.F, and A Tale of Two Cities starring Rui En and Joanne Peh, which are the other two dramas which have successfully attracted an average of more than 900,000 viewers during its run.

Thanks to a wide variety of drama genres this year, before the year concludes with two more shows — The Oath and A Song to Remember — 2011’s dramas on Channel 8 have attracted an average of 870,000 viewers to date, which shows an increase in viewership, as compared to 2010’s average of 859,000 viewers.

These dramas are also attracting online viewers on xinmsn’s Catch-Up TV. Popular youth drama On The Fringe, which, tackled delinquency issues and the rise of youth gangs, was most popular online attracting more than 1.3 million views during its run.
