O come on, that is one bloody show, that has been famous for exactly this thing for like 20 years. That’s like putting clips of Price is right and pretending that any show on tv is that ridiculous. You know what “long tail” represents exaclty this sort of programming

That was hillarious, of course it’s “pedestrian”. It belongs on MR because “all work and no joy, makes Jack a dull boy”.

I grew up in Tokyo, and I the only TV like this is Downtown and similar spin offs sure downtown is on tv quite a bit, but this really is hardly typical of Japanese tev.
