MBC’s popular drama series “Empress Ki” has secured its ratings crown for a whopping 10th week in a row.

The 50-part historic epic dominated AGB Nielsen Media Research (Nielsen Korea)’s ratings chart again after drawing in an average viewership of 18.5 percent during January 6 and 7, the chart showed on Wednesday.

Sitting at the No. 2 place is SBS’s melodrama “One Warm Word,” which nabbed in an average of 9.6 percent of total viewers in the same time frame.

KBS’s romantic comedy series “Prime Minister & I” continued to sit at the bottom place with an average mark of 7.3 percent.

Meanwhile, TNmS’s (Total National Multimedia Statistic) survey showed the three programs in the same order yet slightly lower numbers than Nielsen Korea’s.

“Empress Ki” continued its top seed with an average score of 17.8 percent, while “One Warm Word” and “Prime Minister” followed next two spots, each with average numbers of 7.5 and 6.5 percent, respectively.
