Meteor Garden aired on various stations throughout China, starting in late 2001.[1] It performed particularly well in Chongqing, earning a 10.9% rating.[2] On March 8, 2002, the National Radio and Television Administration called for an immediate suspension after six episodes had aired, citing "that the decadent lifestyle portrayed by boy band 'F4' would corrupt young Chinese minds."[3][4][5]

Starting on October 14, 2008, Meteor Garden was rebroadcast on Xing Kong.[6] Xing Kong later reaired the drama, along with Hana Yori Dango and Boys Over Flowers.[7] Meteor Garden II also aired on the channel, starting on November 4, 2009.[8]
