Furthermore, we also have to say good-bye to two dramas. There isn't much more left to say about the mediocre to low ratings of this season.

    [caption id="attachment_224164" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Drama Prime Time Report – February 27th~March 1st"][/caption] Some dramas were able to gain viewers last week, but all that momentum seems to have dissipated this week. On Monday, 'Stepfather Step' (TBS) gained a couple of viewers again (+0.7%), which isn't much of a surprise after going against variety specials only for two consecutive weeks.

    [caption id="attachment_221591" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Drama Prime Time Report – February 13th~February 16th"][/caption] This was a week full of variety specials and that usually is bad news for the dramas and their viewer ratings. On Monday, 'Stepfather Step' (TBS) had to compete against three specials and dropped to an even lower level. Fortunately 'Lucky Seven' (Fuji TV) got spared of the competition and only lost 0.2%

At least eleven out of the seventeen dramas that air from Monday to Thursday managed to record higher ratings than last week, but of course that doesn't mean much because of how deep the hole was last week. 'Lucky Seven' (Fuji TV) seems to have settled b
