New Year’s Eve Show has always been the biggest battleground of Chinese TV broadcasters every year. Hunan TV, Jiangsu TV, Beijing TV, Dragon TV, ZhejiangTV, SichuanTV and CCTV, they all compete with their own show at the exact same time in the last hours of 2019.

This insane competition among TV channels for the New Year’s Eve Show can only happen in China and nowhere else. In fact, the complete entertainment industry and the biggest stars of the country are mobilized for this night.

Good for us.

Now we have plenty of choices to watch on 201912.31.

Most of them start at 19:30 and last about 4.5 hours.

So who provides the best show on that day? Let‘s find it out by their stars lineup!

Not surprising. Hunan TV has one of the strongest lineups similar to previous years. What about the other channels?

Jiangsu TV usually has also a very strong lineup. Cai Xu Kun is the real audience magnet here. He won‘t disappoint the audience this year for sure.

Dragon TV surprises us this year with two very high explosive stars this year: Xiao Zhan and Zhu Yi Long. As you can see in my previous blog, this is how the audience reacts to them. According to Baidu, they are ranked top 1 and 3 in the most searched male star. With these two megastars, the quote for Dragon TV this year will probably skyrocket.

Sichuan TV (Pre-recorded)

To be strict, this one does not count as a real New Year’s Eve Show because it is pre-recorded on the 22nd of December and will be broadcasted on the 1st of January. Hence, this show does not directly compete with other shows. It is actually a clever way to get more quotes when the other channels are not competing for this time slot.

It is funny how Liu Yu Ning is in both Hunan and Sichuan TV’s show. Li Yu Chun is also in CCTV’s show.

Beijing TV (Live)

Beijing TV complete Star Lineup:

Westlife, Chen Linong, Zhang Shaohan, Fan Chengcheng, Tengger, Zhu Zhengting

Beijing TV is the only broadcaster that introduces the star in form of videos. The key highlight here is Westlife as foreign support. I am not sure if they will be recognized by the Chinese audience though.

CCTV complete Star Lineup:

Li Yuchun, Cai Yilin, Xiao Zhan, Angelababy, Zhang Ruoyun, Guan Xiaotong, Xu Weizhou, Song Zuer, Ouyang Nana

CCTV’s lineup is not that bad if you think that they have another New Years Show coming up in one month: The Chinese New Year Show on January 2020. Usually, they also don‘t compete with other satellite channels on the western New Year’s Eve Show. You can say that CCTV is only showing half of its potential now.

Conclusion

Six channels bring up their strongest lineup to compete at the New Year’s Eve Show. The entertainment industry has invested multi-millions of Yuan in making these gigantic shows. Fortunately, the audience becomes the real winner of this competition because of the new content created by this competition. I am very excited to see all the results at home! Choose your favorite star or channel and enjoy it! Happy New Year to all!
