TBS to drop Saturday drama time slot (8:00PM)


On Wednesday, broadcaster TBS announced that its Saturday 8:00pm hour will be turning back into a variety show time slot this October. The "Hammer Session!" drama series is currently airing in that slot.

In April 2008, TBS changed the time slot from variety to drama, starting with the live-action series "ROOKIES." That series did fairly well, but most dramas in that time slot have averaged under 10% ratings, with the notable exception of Takuya Kimura's "MR.BRAIN" last spring.

TBS stated that it is making the change with the aim of revitalizing the time slot.
