TVB drama Tiger Cubs aired its finale last night with Kenneth Ma's character Do Tin Yu holding more than a dozen hostage in a yacht. This scene reminded many audiences of the hijacking of the Hong Kong tour bus in Philippines nearly two years ago. TVB received nine complaints due to this, in addition to the 16 other complaints about the excessively bloody scenes.

When the cast was filming Tiger Cubs last year, the drama originally planned for scene where people was held hostage on a bus. It was cancelled in the end with a yacht replacing the bus. However, the scene still left the audience uneasy last night with the Hong Kong Broadcasting Authority and TVB receiving 8 and 1 complaints respectively. They complained that the plot was reminiscent of the hostage incident. At the same time the Communications Authority received 11 complaints about the disturbing bloody scenes and that it was not suitable at a family setting. TVB received an additional 5 complaints that the ending was not written realistically and requested it to be re-filmed.

Three Kingdoms RPG's finale last Friday and Ghetto Justice II also received complaints. TVB received 9 complaints regarding Three Kingdoms RPG's ending as being too tragic and not having a happy ending. Ghetto Justice II's 4 complaints showed dissatisfaction with the plot and the character's disingenuous Cantonese.

Though affected by the Olympics, TVB viewship still remained to be quite good. Tiger Cubs' finale on Sunday averaged 30 points (approximately 1.92 million viewers) with a highest rating of 36 points (approximately 2.3 million viewers). This left ATV with almost zero ratings. Three Kingdoms RPG's finale averaged 31 points (1.98 million viewers) with it's highest at 36 points; the entire drama averaged at 30 points. Ghetto Justice II averaged 28 points in ratings for last week.

Artistes Jessica Hsuan and Joe Ma attended the "Tiger Cubs" finale dinner. Because Jessica's birthday is on the 18th of this month, the cast cut the cake with this month's birthday girl. Jessica even humourously said about herself: "I hope the ratings of 'Tiger' are similar to my age...have 42 points". She expressed having just celebrated her birthday with fans in Shanghai...rushed to this dinner after getting off the plane.

Last night, Jessica Hsuan went to TVB City to attend a celebration dinner for "Tiger Cubs". As for whether it was confirmed that a sequel would be filmed, she said, "Don't know. Mentioned it before, but heard that series have already been arranged for the next half-year. If it were to happen, believe that it would be a half a year later. I think that, since the series is so memorable, should do it while it's hot, but very passive as actors. Initially thought it would only have ten-some ratings points, but unexpectedly had prime time slot ratings. It is a work before leaving TVB in which I am very satisfied with...a very good justification for myself".

FYI: "Tiger Cubs" averaged 28 points, and peaked at 36 points.
