7 Comments on ‘The World of the Married’ Breaks Ratings Record of ‘Crash Landing on You’

  1. It is better to trust the eyes rather than the ears.

  2. A sly rabbit will have three openings to its den.

  3. Really great show. Solid episodes, strong characters, thrilling twists and most importantly very realistic. Many people could relate to the realistic, flawed characters.

  4. All programs have better ratings nowadays since millions of people are home in a lockdown with not much to do as watch TV…I think is unfair to compare this drama with dramas played in normal times.
