Drama Prime Time Report – 05/13~05/16

‘Sennyu Tantei Tokage’ (TBS)

The two most popular dramas of this season have already made headlines this week.

Galileo‘ (Fuji TV) finally showed it’s true strength stripped off all of the bonuses with its fifth episode, which recorded a plummet of 3.0%. There wasn’t any other program that was particularly strong that day, so you can’t put the blame on the tough competition. However, it’s still easy to figure out why it suddenly lost that many viewers.

The first two episodes naturally recorded very high ratings due to the initial interest and popularity of Fukuyama Masaharu. The second and third episodes aired during the Golden Week, so more people than usual had the time to stay home and watch a drama during golden time. Now both of those bonuses are gone and the drama dropped below the 20% mark for the first time. Moreover, the cases for the fourth and fifth episode weren’t exactly the most interesting ones, especially since the drama writer and the producers decided to make some significant changes to the original story.

Of course there are also those people who keep on blaming the cast, Yoshitaka Yuriko in particularly, and the special guests. It would be amazing if  ‘Galileo’ was still going to keep its season-average above the 20% mark, but unfortunately that will be a very difficult goal.

Last Cinderella‘ (Fuji TV) also made it into the news for scratching the 15% mark for the first time after slowly yet gradually increasing ratings over the past weeks. Fuji TV also released a short compilation containing some of the more “sensual” scenes so far in the drama and it reached more than 100,000 views in just one week. They sure know their viewers and how to cater to them.

As for the rest of the dramas that aired from Monday until Thursday: The only noteworthy changes were recorded by ‘Iryu Sousa 3‘ (TV Asahi) with a plus of 2.4%, ‘Keiji 110 Kilo‘ (TV Asahi) with a rise of 2.3%, and ‘Kamo, Kyoto e Iku.‘ (Fuji TV) with a fall of 1.5%.

(NTV is the only network that still discloses all of their ratings on a daily base. If anything, the other networks only reveal the ratings for their dramas regularly.)

NHK, TBS and TV Tokyo usually don’t disclose the ratings for their shows on a regular basis, therefore they won’t be included in the list below. Certain dramas or drama specials that aired on those channels and might lack ratings are still included with a ??.?% rating. This doesn’t mean that the ratings were too low to recorded.

An orange color means almost no change, while a red color means the ratings dropped, and a green color means the ratings improved.

Drama Prime Time Report – 04/15~04/18

‘Galileo’ (Fuji TV)

A total of 8 new dramas premiered from Monday to Thursday this week.

Fuji TV’s Monday drama ‘Galileo‘ (season 2) – starring heartthrob Fukuyama Masaharu and a new heroine played by Yoshitaka Yuriko – attracted the most viewers with a great rating of 22.6%. Many viewers also swooned over the male duo Ito Hideaki and Sakaguchi Kenji in the Thursday crime drama ‘Doubles ~ Futari no Keiji‘ (TV Asahi), which also did pretty well with a rating of 15.8%. Meanwhile, the third season of ‘Iryu Sousa 3‘ (TV Asahi) recorded a nice rating of 14.6% as well.

Two more dramas have started the spring season with viewer ratings above 10%. ‘Kakusho ~ Keishicho Sousa 3 Ka‘ (TBS) – starring Takahashi Katsumi and Eikura Nana – recorded a rating of 10.9% on Monday, while ‘Kazoku Game‘ (Fuji TV) – starring Arashi’s Sakurai Sho – didn’t quite meet expectations with a mediocre rating of 12.0%.

Kumo no Kaidan‘ (NTV) starring Hasegawa Hiroki and ‘Sennyu Tantei Tokage‘ (TBS) starring Matsuda Shota failed to reach a double-digit rating with their respective first episodes.

As for the dramas that already celebrated their premieres in the week before, ‘Last Cinderella‘ (Fuji TV) was the only prime time drama that actually gained viewers with its second episode. ‘Kamo, Kyoto e Iku.‘ (Fuji TV) and ‘Kasuka na Kanojo‘ both lost viewers, while the former has dropped below the 10% mark already.

(NTV is the only network that still discloses all of its ratings on a daily base. If anything, the other networks only reveal the ratings for their dramas regularly.)

NHK, TBS and TV Tokyo usually don’t disclose the ratings for their shows on a regular basis, therefore they won’t be included in the list below. Certain dramas or drama specials that aired on those channels and might lack ratings are still included with a ??.?% rating. This doesn’t mean that the ratings were too low to be recorded.

An orange color means almost no change, while red means the ratings dropped and green means the ratings improved.

Fukuyama Masaharu’s latest single tops the Oricon chart

Singer and actor Fukuyama Masaharu released his 30th single “Tanjoubi ni wa Masshiro na Yuri wo/Get the groove” on April 10th, and the single topped Oricon’s weekly single chart after selling 109,000 copies in the first week.

This marked Fukuyama’s 7th consecutive (and 16th in total) single to top the chart since “Keshin” that was released in May 2009. With this single, his number of consecutive years to top the chart has been increased to 5 consecutive years. Fukuyama is now the 4th male solo artist to achieve this after Kondo Masahiko (during 1981~1985), Tahara Toshihiko (during 1980~1985), and Nagabuchi Tsuyoshi (during 1988~1993).

He has also renewed his own record for the total number of chart topping singles (for singer songwriters) raising it up to 16 singles, which is followed by Utada Hikaru with 12 singles.

Fukuyama Masaharu & Shibasaki Kou’s unit KOH+ to make a comeback to sing for upcoming “Galileo” drama

On April 8th, it was revealed that Fukuyama Masaharu and Shibasaki Kou’s music project KOH+ will be making a comeback to sing the theme song for the upcoming Fuji TV drama, ‘Galileo‘.

The song is titled “Koi no Maryoku“, and it was written and composed by Fukuyama. As the drama will broadcast in 70 locations worldwide, KARA’s Hara and Taiwanese singer A-Lin will be covering the song in Korean and Chinese, respectively. This will mark Fukuyama’s first time collaborating with singers from other countries.

KOH+ was formed back in 2007 when Fukuyama and Shibasaki co-starred in ‘Galileo’. They attracted attention by singing the drama’s theme song, and were also in charge of the theme song for the movie, ‘Yougisha X no Kenshin‘, which was released a year later.

It’s been 5 years since the two last worked together. Fukuyama wrote “Koi no Maryoku” by overlapping the image of the two heroines, Kaoru (played by Shibasaki) and Misa (Yoshitaka Yuriko), and it’s described as an up-tempo love song.

The song was recorded at a studio in Tokyo in mid-February. While it has been 5 years, the two were completely in sync. Shibasaki commented, “It once again made me think that Fukuyama-san is a ‘producer’. He’s good at putting feeling into it.” Meanwhile, Fukuyama praised her, saying, “She’s added more power into her delicate expressiveness that she’s had since 5 years ago. We were pretty much okay with the first take.

For this song, KARA’s Hara will work under the name ‘HARA+‘ and A-Lin under the name ‘A-Lin+‘. Fukuyama said in astonishment, “When putting a different language onto the melody and backtrack that I created, it turns into a completely different sound.” He continued, “I’m looking forward to how it will reach each country.

‘Galileo’ will air on Fuji TV every Mondays at 9:00 pm starting April 15th.
