On March 8th CJ ENM released their latest Content Power Index, or CPI for short. The CPI tracks the popularity of various television programs via non-traditional metrics on a weekly basis. The latest report, dealing with the fourth week of February, showed that "The Penthouse 2" was once again the most popularly talked about drama. The data used for this iteration of the CPI was collected from February 22nd to February 28th.
In objective measurements "The Penthouse 2" dropped slightly, from 400.3 points the previous week to 389.9 points this week. However, "The Penthouse 2" still overwhelmed all other programs surveyed. For a sense of perspective, this was also the second week "The Penthouse 2" was airing. The third and fourth episodes of "The Penthouse 2" received 22.4% and 24% ratings respectively.
"Vincenzo" saw a noteworthy boost from 227 points to 251.5 points, landing it as the fourth highest performing drama of the week. The only other television drama in the top ten was "Sisyphus: The Myth" with 214.4 points in ninth place. This was a very slight drop from 215 points the previous week.
