How will Law School perform in the cable ratings?

Historically, K-Dramas from jTBC that aired on Wednesday and Thursday have failed to make a significant impact on the ratings. The vast majority of K-Dramas featured in the top 50 cable dramas aired on Fridays and Saturdays, with the highest rated of them all, The World of the Married, with an astonishing 28.4%.

To enter the top 50 Law School would need to exceed a rating of 6.7%, which would beat the tvN dramas Mouse, The Cursed, and fellow jTBC drama Sisyphus: The Myth.
