    July 5, 2012 @ 6:45 pm

    On July 5th, NTT's popular Internet portal and search engine goo released the results from their recent mobile poll that asked users to pick their most memorable drama from the past spring season. If we were only to look at the ratings, then Fuji TV would be the winner with their Monday drama 'Kagi no Kakatta Heya', closely followed by 'ATARU' (TBS) and - falling a bit behind - '37-sai de Ishani Natta Boku' (Fuji TV).

NTV had a strong showing once again on Monday, much to the despair of the TBS 8:00 pm drama 'Hancho 5', which had to give away 1.7% in the ratings department after a very strong previous week. 'Kagi no Kakatta Heya' (Fuji TV) also immedia

    [caption id="attachment_243750" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Drama Prime Time Report – May 28th~May 31st"][/caption] 'Hancho 5' (TBS) did great on Monday and recorded a plus of 1.6% thanks to the weak baseball match on NTV, but unfortunately that wasn't enough for a new personal record. The bad rating on NTV also affected the 9:00 pm time slot and allowed 'Kagi no Kakatta Heya' (Fuji TV) to gain 0.7% and enter the 16% range again.
