Earlier TVB established a cross-platform ratings, resulting in several of the series reaching the 30 point mark. Last night TVB chairman Norman Leung hosted a celebration for the cast of Friendly Fire, Sergeant Tabloid and A Great Way to Care II, the contestants and crew of Miss HK and The Voice of the Stars. The celebration had 19 tables and over 200 artists and behind-the-scenes crew in attendance. The attendees included Michael Tse, Tavia Yeung, Kate Tsui, Niki Chow, Sharon Chan, Mandy Wong and many more. TVB boss Charles Chan, General Manager Mark Lee, Production & Resource Director Virgina Lok and executive Catherine Tsang were there as well. Norman Leung boasted during the toast that TVB will forever be the boss! The audience cheered loudly in response. Norman expressed the next celebration will be in October for Triumph in the Skies II.
Even though Michael's contract had already expired, he was still arranged to sit at the executive's table. Michael and the TVB boss were seen chatting closely, it appears there might be big plans in the works! Earlier it was said Niki Chow is dating Mainland actor Jeremy JOnes, although she expressed they are just friends, she urged the public to give them a chance to develop. Asked what about Jeremy attracts her? Niki said: "A good guy, he's filal and ambitious. (What did he get you for your birthday?) I don't have to say it. (He gave himself to you?) Not that old fashioned. (A kiss?) I don't remember. After all, I'm currently very happy. Thank you all for the concern."
Tavia Yeung had just completed shooting for her new series Property Protector, she expressed recently she has been resting to treat her collar bone spurs and lower back injury. She said: "Friends told me to go swimming to relax. (Ask former life guard Him Law to teach you!) There is no place in Hong Kong where nobody can take pictures of you. I'm afraid of water, I don't want to be calling for help so often."
In regards to the saying that there is "nobody" in TVB, Miss Lok said TVB Siu Sangs have always been best sellers; their artists have many opportunities and the company will not stop them from making money externally. She added TVB is like a parent allowing them (the artists) to go out and experience working elsewhere, it is a good thing and TVB's goal is hoping the artists can shoot 2 TVB series a year. She said: "We're very harsh, must sign long-term contracts, even the first line artists. As you all say, we hire external help such as Eddie Cheung and Lawrence Ng. Anthony Wong and Tony Leung are coming back soon as well."
