Ch3 ratings

I agree with my friends in the ch7 ratings thread one. One should make a thread about ch3 ratings situation. How can you explain that that channel that gets all of the buzz, the hype and the awards (most of them undeserved) and the deals can still only attract mostly urban and BKK areas viewers thus trails behind ch7 ratingwise ? I have my lil opinion on the subject but would like to hear my fellow members views 1st.
Thank you !

First of all my biggest issue with ch3 they are the most biased channels, they have a thing for European mixed kid, Don’t get me wrong i love some of them.
I want more thai beauty like prang & namtarn...
They also love flower boys i mean i can handle a few flower boys but they just love too much for ch3 they going like kpop idol drama which most of time fail, which why their rating is failing ,Thailand love more mature actors.
Some of their actors acting aren't great but I noticed they are getting a little better & they have many dark horse & they don’t use them.
One thing i want from them is to fix the fake kissing.
They have amazing production truly my favorite are there that why I watch mostly ch3 lakorn because of the production & they aren’t cheap looking.
My biggest problem with them is the way the handle some actors & the way they’re obsessed with koojin they take to next level, i perfer they do fresh & new couple & I would love see my favorite couple one again after some time not stick them together forever after a blink of an eye.ch3 has the biggest international fan base they should take advantage & add eng sub to their drama.

Lol ch3 got their own thread!!!!

I think with ch3, they make lakorns that country people couldn't relate too. It's too city. Ch7 has lots of flaws but it is entertaining because its sooo namnao or just :facepalm::facepalm:. People who worked all day doing labor work sometime wants to go home and watch something that they can yell at the TV about. Kinda hard to explain and I'm not that great with it. I remember eating at a street restaurant and the lady had on ch7, I asked her why she doesn't watch ch3 and she said it's not spicy as ch7. She used the word: ata-rot.

Lol, yep, so true. I remember recommending a ch3 lakorn to my parents and they said they can’t relate and it’s nonsense to them. They rather watch low budget ch7 lakorns. Ch7 something is more entertaining ch than ch3 lakorns even with all over their pace storyline.

I also heard ch3 isnt as available in countryside as ch7 is but idk if thats true
Lol that's an excuse 15 to 20 years ago. I dont know why people continue to use it to excuse ch3's poor ratings lol. They proven it themselves many times that ch3 reach all the region ch7 reaches with several lakorns such as Dok Som See Tong, Reang Ngao, Nakee and now BPS. There was an evening lakorn that reached high 20's about 10 years ago. I think hardcore fans of ch3s are just in denial cus now they're using the digital world excuse. Plus dont you think with how competitive between ch3 and ch7, ch3 wouldn't pay for technology upgrades to "reach" all those places fans claimed they couldn't?

Truth hurts but it’s a fact that ch3 rating is failing, one thing that ch7 has a spicy charm if ch3 doesn’t want to be forgotten like ch5 they better shake a few things & meet a little old with the new.
Ch7 their charm isn’t going last forever either they also need to plan for the future because no matter how charming is it the bad quality going ruin it.

I have read all of my friends comments here and I agree with everything you have said. Ch3 on the outside looks good, expensive and appealing but maybe because they focus too much on the gloss a lot of Thai viewers can't relate to them ? I agree with everything @S.J.M stated up here. Lately even I can't relate to the ch3 faces I am seeing. They look expensive. They easily get the hype and the buzz but I think ch3 lacks that challenging vibe I get from a Gmm25 lakorn : look at the case of yadesh or jj/Taew lakorns reception...

Ch3s are fantasy for the city people..its what the middle class hope their life could be, a cinderella story with poor girl meeting rich guy. Country people ain't got time for day dreaming lol. Nakee did so well cus it spoke to Thais of all regions. Who in Thailand doesn't believe or worship Nak? No matter how advance people think Thailand is, it's mainly in the city (Bangkok), the provinces are still very much deeply rooted in their culture and traditions. BPS did the same thing.

Both channels has their own target group and it doesn't seem like they want to change. I was hoping gmm25 be the balance between the two but most their lakorns are too extreme or too teeny bopperish for me. There are few that I like though but not enough for me to like give up 3 and 7 for. I think they'll do well for younger gen than mine.

Gmm25 is great challenging channel but the problem is the balance they go very flower boy or extreme mature but they need to work & find a nice blend.
@preetam you are right,
Ch3 is an expensive object you think to buy but after you look at it you feel you don’t really need, they add too much gliter but it doesn’t make it shine.
Ch3 move too much forward & trying to be super modern they are forgetting their roots what got them to be a big channe. Nakee & BPS they both were hit in all Thailand & even Asia because it has the charm of the present & past.
while ch7 is stuck in the past refusing to move forward.

CH7 audiences comprise of rural or country side which is the majority of the total population, so it’s not surprising at all that the ratings for CH7 are almost always higher than CH3, CH8, One HD, etc.

CH7 lakorns can have the unknown casts and their ratings are still higher than the popular ones at CH3, One HD, CH8, etc.

I like to compare the ratings for lakorns within the same channel and see how they fare among themselves. I think it’s more realistic.

Of course, CH3 lakorns will beat CH7 once in a while, but those are the exception. Same case can apply to One HD and CH3.

Another thing I notice and have a problem with ch3 is that they really dont treat their people fairly. People say ch7 dont but at least ch7 doesnt over make their lakorns and sit on it (unless they really dont like the pranang). Ch3 makes so many lakorns that UNLESS the pranangs are A lister, you really dont know when it will air. Will it air this year, next year or in 5 years :rolleyes:. Maybe this is why most producers keep casting the same people or A listers, they know it'll get aired immediately. I mean can you really blame them? They all want their hard working lakorns to get air and if the channel sits on non A listers then why not just cast A listers?

Yup that’s another big problem like just find a slot on the weekend or release them online.many lakorn of my favourite has finished shooting like forever but still no sign, one more thing is the production if the production isn’t the big ones they have less chance to air. They have too many people but they don’t know how to mange them or make them shine or forget about them.
While ch7 one of the problems is they shoot while they air & sometimes if they are popular they add more episodes which kind ruin the script & the editing becomes a little mess.

Lol you are very welcome :thumbup::pancarta:

Honestly I thought powerful koojin latest lakorn would be a super hit. It looked great on the teaser. Then it ended up all gloss... sigh powerful koojin not impactful enough to save lakorn ratings:crybaby2:
