#3 of the images NHK’s News Department and Entertainment Department at Odds Over “Kohaku”! | FRIDAY DIGITAL

NHK’s morning drama “Boogie Woogie” began airing on October 2, and Tsuyoshi Kusanagi (49) of “SMap” made his first appearance in a morning drama. With Johnny’s unable to appear, will “SMap” make its first appearance in the Kohaku Uta Gassen?The viewer rating for the “Kohaku Uta Gassen” is said to border on 30%. However, even the ratings for last year’s Kohaku Uta Gassen, in which the six Johnny’s groups participated, averaged 31.2% household viewership for the first part (Kanto region) and 35.3% for the second part. If the program falls below the 30% household viewer rating, which is said to be the borderline, it is inevitable that there will be discussions of discontinuing the program even within the station. If this were to happen, there is a possibility that the overall budget for the entertainment program group would be cut.   This year’s “Kohaku Uta Gassen” will determine the distance between NHK and Johnny’s in the future. At the same time, it is likely to be a battle for the prestige of NHK’s variety squad.   FRIDAY Digital welcomes any information or tip-offs you may have.
