"Kazoku no Uta" discontinued for poor ratings

15 May – Fuji TV has decided to cut short the run of Odagiri Joe's "Kazoku no Uta", after it has failed to gain traction with viewers.

According to Tokyo Hive, the initially 10-episode series would end on its 8th episode after it is aired on 3 June, when ratings for the series continued to flop since its first airing.

It's first episode only garnered an average of 6.1 percent in the Kanto region, before it made a drastic plummet to 3.6 percent for its second episode, and dropped even further to 3.4 percent on its third episode.

Although Fuji TV CEO Toyoda Kau said that they were trying to win more audience support for the fledgling series, it continued to seal its fate when the fourth episode proved its lowest rating of 3.1 percent.

"Kazoku no Uta" is Odagiri Joe's drama series role for Fuji TV, about an out-of-favour rock star who suddenly discovers that he is a father of three daughters and tries to hid it from his agency.

Each episode was supposed to have a guest appearance from a celebrity, but even the gimmick has failed to win it any attention from viewers.

Fuji TV has yet to decide what would be aired on the empty slots left behind by the cancellation of "Kazoku no Uta" until the airing of their next drama, "Beautiful Rain", in July, starring Toyokawa Etsushi and Ashida Mana.
