However, the competition is much closer than it has been in months, with "Taxi Driver", "Mouse", and "MINE" all being within a single point of one another, The newcomer "Youth of May" had its start in fourth place.
The relative parity between top dramas in Internet searches belies the reality in ratings, where "Taxi Driver" is by far the best performer of the four, with 13% ratings in it most recent episode.
