MBC’s historical series “The Duo” ruled the Mondays and Tuesdays primetime slot another week, according to data by two media research companies on Wednesday.

“The Duo” yielded an average viewership rating of 13.7 percent on the poll for Total National Multimedia Statistics (TNmS) and 16.2 percent on the findings by AGB Nielsen Media Research (AGB), leading its competitors for the second straight week while showing almost no change in terms of the rating itself.

In this week’s episodes, Mak-soon (Yoon Yoo-sun) lies to Chun-dung (Chung Jung-myung) once again, saying she is his real mother. She then schemes to take him to old and wealthy official Yi whom she had an affair with a long time ago, in order to receive a family fortune by claiming that Chun-dung is his son.

SBS drama “Midas” scored an average viewership rating of 11.9 percent on TNmS’ chart and 12.8 percent on AGB’s poll, the figures about a one percent improvement on the former chart but showing no change on the latter.

In “Midas,” Kim Do-hyun (Jang Hyuk) succeeds in bringing down HanYoung Bank in order to take it over but conglomerate son Yoo Sung-joon (Yoon Je-mun) suddenly joins the bid and is named the preferred bidder, leaving Kim in trouble.

KBS series “Detectives In Trouble” revealed an average viewership rating seven percent and 7.55 percent on TNmS’ and AGB’s surveys, respectively, continuing to remain in the seven percent range since last week.

In the drama, after the death of two ballerinas who died while performing “Romeo and Juliet,” detective Park Se-hyuk (Song Il-gook) finds a clue in one of the girls’ diary and sets off to arrest staff member Kim Hyung-tae only to be halted by a sudden gunshot.
