On March 2nd CJ ENM released the latest iteration of the Content Power Index (CPI) which is intended to track the relative popularity of television programs via nontraditional sources. For the third week of February, defined as February 15th-21st, "The Penthouse 2" led all programs in its opening week. "The Penthouse 2" had an astonishing score of over four hundred points. For a sense of perspective no other television programs, dramas or variety shows, cracked even three hundred points.
The news tracks with the strong ratings "The Penthouse 2" has received, with 24% ratings in its most recent episode. The only two dramas of note in the CPI rankings were "Vincenzo" with two hundred and twenty seven points and "Sisyphus: The Myth" with two hundred and fifteen points. All three dramas premiered in that same week, though "The Penthouse 2" was the only one which was a continuation of a previously existing drama, "The Penthouse" from last year.
