Konkatsu’s Rating

Viewership numbers for television dramas have been dropping across the board in recent years, but on Thursday they hit a new low for Fuji TV when the ratings for “Konkatsu!” were revealed.

Eita, dipped as low as 10.2% in its 9th episode. However, no “Getsu 9” series has fallen to single digits before now.

“Konkatsu!” started out at 16.3% for its premiere but dropped sharply to 11.2% for the second episode. Part of the decline may have resulted from the recent arrest of fellow SMAP member Tsuyoshi Kusanagi. The group’s show “SMAP x SMAP” (which goes on the air right after the “Getsu 9” time slot) also saw a significant drop last week after the arrest, and this past Monday it fell further to 11.2%, its worst ratings so far this year.
