Yamashita Tomohisa’s New Drama Receives High Ratings
Posted by diopatra on July 15, 2009
Kusanagi Tsuyoshi’s ‘Ninkyo Helper’ received the best ratings last week with 17.5% for its first episode. Hailing from the same agency, NEWS member Yamashita Tomohisa’s new drama, ‘Buzzer Beat’, airing on the same network (Fuji TV) achieved 15.5% for its first episode which aired yesterday. The ratings for this drama are quite good and will hopefully beat the dismal ratings from last season’s Getsu9 drama, ‘Konkatsu!’, starring Nakai Masahiro, which had an average of 10%.
This basketball-centered love drama features a strong cast of young idols in the lead roles, namely Yamashita, Kitagawa Keiko and Aibu Saki. Airing during the summertime, the ratings are expected to be high.
