Public broadcast ratings can be harder than cable ratings because public broadcast records date back many decades. Racket Boys is a serious contender for the Public Broadcast Top 50.
SBS currently has 10 dramas on the Top 50 List. The highest-rated drama, Sandglass is at 64.5%. Racket Boys must have a rating greater than 44.9% to beat Dear Heaven (which is also 50th overall).
