On the 22nd, it was announced that “Downtown no Gaki no Tsukasa ya Aarente” series (NTV), which has been broadcast as a New Year’s Eve special program from ’06 to ’20, will not be aired again this year! (Nippon Television Network Corporation), which has been broadcast as a New Year’s Eve special from 2006 to 2008, will not be aired again this year.
Yoshimoto has been contemplating a generational change for several years, pushing for “Kamaitachi” and “Chidori” as post-“Downtown. Nippon TV is planning to send out a special program at the end of the year featuring Koji Higashino (56) and “Ninety-Nine. Nittele is planning to host a 9-hour-long comedy special featuring Koji Higashino (56), Ninety-Nine, Chidori, and Kamaitachi as well as other Yoshimoto comedians. The program will be hosted by Yoshimoto comedians including Koji Higashino (56), Ninety-Nine, Chidori, and Kamaitachi, and will run for over 9 hours. I also hear that the information variety show “Ito Family’s Dining Table” is scheduled to be revived for one night only within the program as the main feature of the program. (TV station insider)
Why was “The Ito Family’s Dining Table” chosen to be revived in the midst of the year-end comedy specials? In fact, “The Ito Family’s Dining Table” is the most appropriate popular program to revive at this time.
At the time, “The Ito Family’s Dining Table” was a popular program that was revived by “V6” member Ken Miyake (44). Ken Miyake (44), who was a member of V6, appeared regularly on “The Ito Family’s Dining Table” at the time. Miyake, 44, who was a member of V6, appeared regularly on “Ito’s Dining Table” at the time. After Miyake moved to “TOBE It was also on Nippon TV that Miyake made his first TV appearance after moving to “TOBE. If he appeared on TV, it would be easier for Shiyoh Hirano (26), who belongs to the same group, and others to appear on TV, so “TOBE As for “TOBE, TOBE” would like to impress its own talents on TV as soon as possible. Nippon TV would also want to do “TOBE” a favor. In addition, the timing of the appointment of Miyake is also important for NTV to make a good impression. Furthermore, the timing of Miyake’s appearance would be favorable for both Nippon TV and the former Johnny’s office in all directions, as it would allow them to present a clean image to the viewers, free from pressure and discovery. I think “The Ito Family’s Dining Table” is just the right project for Miyake to appear on TV in a natural way.
Miyake was also able to get into a special program full of Yoshimoto comedians because Hideaki Takizawa, president of “TOBE The reason why Miyake was able to get into a special program full of Yoshimoto comedians was because Hideaki Takizawa, president of “TOBE”, had prepared for the event by establishing a solid relationship with Yoshimoto Kogyo, which also has young male idols such as “JO1”. Yoshimoto also thought that “TOBE” would be easier to deal with than the old Johnny’s office, which had many problems” (Yoshimoto). I think it is easier for Yoshimoto to deal with “TOBE” than the old Johnny’s Office, which had many problems,” said an entertainment agency official.
It seems that all three parties have their own ideas before the year-end special program.
