TVB series The Greatness of a Hero was seen as the 'bottom of the warehouse' series when it first premiere in HK. However, as the series gets closer to the end, the report shows an average rating of 32 point, peaking at 36 points. Looks like the series won back some justice. TVB's Director of Drama Production (Catherine Tsang) expressed the series has its strengths that is able to withstand the test of time. It's a 'stock' production, not a 'bottom of the warehouse' production.
Towards the high ratings, Kent Cheng felt especially happy that the ratings weren't affected by the Easter holiday. "I heard after our series finished shooting, someone saw the series, stole the idea and engaged in some 'infringement' producing another palace focused drama thereafter. This caused the HK broadcast of The Greatness of a Hero delayed time after time." Reporters later asked Catherine regarding to Kent's comment, was the palace drama he referred to Beyond the Realm of Conscience? She said: "There will not be 'infringement' happening in TVB. Whenever a series completes, only the series producer and myself can see it. I believe there is some misunderstanding, I will explain to Kent."
