    Of the MC shows, I think "Perfect Cut" is one of the better or I may even say best ones to date. At least the content has substance, the storyline is fresh (Nonya storyline is not at all fresh lor... only the Nonya theme is fresh... same sh*t in a different toilet bowl!) and the mood is a bit arty. It is the only MC show I have bothered to watch in the last 10 years!

    Do I believe? Yes, why not?
    Do I think they deserve it? No.

    - He Ping De Dai Jia (Japanese Occupation)
    - Shuang Tian Zhi Zhun series 1,2,3... (Gambling storyline)
    - Jing Zhen Tou (Golden Pillow)

    Did the news report absolute figures or percentage? If it is absolute figures (which it should not be), then it is no surprise if you compare the popultation size of the time of those shows and now. If it is percentage, well... it is possible too. Many watch to understand the Nonya culture or are curious about it... Nonya/ Peranakan people who don't usually watch Chinese shows may watch this show too, since they identify themselves with it.

    Haha... yeahhh... PCK is still one of the best local shows... no matter how lame their jokes get! There's just this flavour and even if the jokes are lame, they are still really funny, at least!

    I loved the first season of the Noose but this 2nd season... ... really lame and sometimes not funny, just plain boring.

    Must my TV be on for the entire show to count me as a viewer?
    If I only watched one episode, does that count me as a viewer?
    Also, they can only know the TV set is on to that channel but how would they know how many people in the household are watching??

    golden pillow...classic case of cheesy script writing. can still remember the vary last scene where Fann Wong, Zoe Tay and Alex Man put their ears on that bleddy rock and said, "ni ting dao le mah?'
    That one seared into the etches of the mind...that after donkey ears it still remains.

    Ok. I have to admit that I have not watched a single episode. However, I can still make my best guess. The background is based on Nonya, Yes. With Nonya clothing, folks songs, the way they address each other and the yellow cast, which as of now, I still couldn't understand the need for that heavy yellow cast.

    Now, let's review the story. Again my best guess....Love triangle, sibling rivals, jealousy, greed...all these can be found on that "Xing Hua Dou DOu Kai", my best guess again. All simply change it to a Nonya setting. Simple port over.

    Also, the highlight of the drama, some mentioned of the PG part (you know which section), how can they as MC present such a "concept" on the "golden hour" where many young viewers are watching...It should be rated PG liao...

    In addition, MC has lately getting their young female artiste to dress in skimpy clothing...and MC tried to blow trumpet out of that and this is the same for this Nonya drama. Instead of beefing up on the story structure, they prefer otherwise...

    I also don't understand what so nice about the show. Don't know why its apparently reported to be so good - maybe its just marketing fluff?

    Well....maybe your standard is very high....mine not....I enjoy the show thoroughly despite they are against the big budget Hollywood Mummy2 on channel 5 the same time

    It's tough being Mediacorp especially with funding from MCD....they have to justify and viewer ship is the best barometer for the popularity of the type of show people like....what's the point of having marvelous substances, fresh story line and what ever super duper effects you name it but cannot draw the crowds?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nielsen_Ratings

    Nielsen Television Ratings are gathered by one of two ways; by extensive use of surveys, where viewers of various demographics are asked to keep a written record (called a diary) of the television programming they watch throughout the day and evening, or by the use of Set Meters, which are small devices connected to every television in selected homes. These devices gather the viewing habits of the home and transmit the information nightly to Nielsen through a "Home Unit" connected to a phone line. Set Meter information allows market researchers to study television viewing habits on a minute to minute basis, seeing the exact moment viewers change channels or turn off their TV. In addition to this technology, the implementation of individual viewer reporting devices (called people meters) allow the company to separate household viewing information into various demographic groups. In 2005, Nielsen began measuring the usage of digital video recordings (TiVo, for example) and initial results indicate that time-shifted viewing will have a significant impact on television ratings. The networks are not yet figuring these new results into their ad rates at the resistance of advertisers.[1]

    Definitely .... for several reasons:

    1) The "Chinese" population has grown, esp with the influx of the PRC FTs,
    2) Since 1993, the country population has "grown" so much,
    3) In 1993, how many families have TV? Now most houses have 2 or 3 or 4 TVs, and if I am not mistaken, children, grandparents, etc... are all watching in their rooms...
    4) Now is recession and so many people got nothing much to do but to be fed with such ridiculous show ....
    always the Light, .... always.

    best local drama to me is still,

    yang guang lie che 1, (the teachers drama)
    mi li ye, (the mysterious ghost stories)
    shuang tian zhi zun 1 (god of gambler sg version)

    not to mention the all famous, qi jue qiao jia ren (the 7th month love story), tcs telemovie

    dont know why they still dont get it, we are not looking for lotsa CG, lotsa explosion drama, we just want a back the solid storyline dramas where they can do it so many years ago. Cant they learn from the hk dramas? they can come out with so many dramas theme from hk police and yet so many of them are so nicely done?


    little nonya to me is just a drama nicely package with glamorous costumes beautiful cast but story plot lack of planning. i do watch it, but didnt feel it up to standard to claim the best drama. there are times i go wtf, like how yueniang can be save by da sha feeding her bird nest "accidentally" found off the roof and "accidentally" cooked, it is plain ridiculous.

    I do watch this show occasionally together with my wife and mother. Both of them love it and followed every episode. I started watching it from the last 10 or 9 episodes only.

    Personally, I feel that this show is better than some of the other MediaCorp's Chinese dramas, despite the fact that there are quite a few historical inaccuracies and timing errors. Nonetheless, I rated it at '4'.

    Don't expect "Hollywood-standard" in MediaCorp's shows, but "The Little Nyonya" is definitely one of the better local productions throughout the 45 years span of Singapore television programming.

    And, yes, the yellow cast is annoying. At first I though my TV had problem until my mother pointed out that this is a "yellow" show (ironically, this also means pornography in mandarin).

    So if I record a show, does it register as a viewing? I record all the shows that I want to watch so that I don't have to follow TV schedule and when I watch them, I can skip over all the ads! I can also pause whenever I like to go toilet or take food. Own time own target !
