Recently, a poll was posted asking Japanese television viewers what programs they wanted to end. Although many of these shows are popular, some people are ready for them to be taken off the air. Topping the list was “Gyorestuno Dekiru Horitsu Sodanjo.” Those polled said that while the program could be interesting, the concept isn’t always conveyed as well as it could be.
Coming in at number 2 is “SMAP X SMAP.” After the disbandment disturbance, some do not see them the same. Another feels that even if the content is interesting, they’re no longer funny. SMAP X SMAP’s first episode aired on April 15, 1996.
Rounding out the top 3 is “Akko ni Omakase!” which has been on air since October 1985. One voter said the topics on the program are uninteresting and the program overall is irritating. While someone else said the performers who harden around Akiko Wada are pitiful. They continued that Wada’s intentions are transparent and explained that she’s an inconsistent person that only thinks of herself.
