|10:46 am - 64th Kohaku Uta Gassen Ratings reported by media + confusing ratings breakdown |
The 64th annual NHK “Kohaku Uta Gassen” (Red and White Singing Contest) on New Year’s Eve received a record-breaking television rating of 44.5%, the highest ever in the last 10 years.
According to video researchers, the music variety program’s ratings surpassed the TBS drama “Hanazawa Naoki” which received 42.2% by 2.3 points.
Sports Nippon reported that the show drew in a large viewership with various performances, including members of the hit TV program “Ama-chan,” and veteran singer Saburo Kitajima’s 50th and final appearance.
From 7:15 p.m. during the first half of the program, the show garnered a rating of 36.9%, which was up 3.7 points over the previous year. The second half of the program received the highest rating of the last 10 years at 44.5%.
Since I know some can't wait for Kohaku ratings breakdown, here are some ratings I gathered.

|07:06 pm - Gantz reviews from popular sites|
Boozie Movies drunkenly rants about GANTZ, Otakus, & proper theater etiquette
- knew almost nothing about original, drunk review, bad cinema experience, hate the dubbing, but still find the movie good and wanted to watched the sequel without smelly and noisy distraction and no dubs
GANTZ: PART ONE Review
- knew almost nothing about original, polite reviewer, fairly ok cinema experience, hated the dubbing, but still find the movie good and excited about the sequel
Twitchfilm and the members pretty much liked Gantz.
Gantz is the best alien deathmatch we've seen in ages
- knew almost nothing about original, experienced reporter wrote the review, fairly ok cinema experience, hated the dubbing, but still find the movie good and really excited about the sequel
io9 has an angry, highly critical crowd but the senior reporter writing the review LOVED it. I hoped she won't waver from the positive 1st impression she had.
GANTZ World Premiere
- knew almost nothing about original, popular reviewer, fairly ok cinema experience, hated the dubbing, but still find the movie good and really excited about the sequel

OMG. IMMA GONNA KEEP THIS LINK
ngl, i was angry at first but what the heck. haters need to blow of some steam like me.
just to make it clear, i wasn't trolling with the "unnecessary praising" articles posted at arama. the community was not moving and there are news posted. actual news posted by actual paid journalist from actual well known source. the thing is, i'm only interested to have Arashi related stuff in my inbox. I'll be talking to myself if I posted it in my own journal plus the comments at arashi communities are
Selfish reasons are selfish so forgive me. That doesn't mean I'll stop posting ;)
Another point is "dissing other groups"? What? NEVER especially JE... maybe I did dissed Yuma but I can't help not liking his face nnn~~~~. I dissed KPOP but that was not serious. I rarely dissed other fandoms.............Ooo maybe that Billboard article seems like I was dissin the other "artists". I was annoyed people are getting the award meaning wrong. Sales award are sales award and Arashi deserves the award. Dissing other artists never happened but I was pretty obnoxious. Sorry bout that.
Haters are most welcome to comment and have a little debate in my future "unnecessary" posts at arama. I haven't had anyone complaining how unnecessary those posts were recently because clearly it was all pure news. Fred the goat had taken care of that Tokyohive Aiba penguin post eons ago. Yes, I would take down my post if it seems like spamming. Just give a reasonable holler. I might even reply reasonably instead of simply deleting it.
A troll is different from a stan. I'm a happy stan. Some like me, some don't. C'est la vie
This is what I have been posting at arama all this while: http://community.livejournal.com/aramatheydidnt?poster=buyme_arashi
No, I'm not a troll but you can judge me yourselves by clicking that link.

|11:00 am - Future Prime Minister and Gorby|
Arashi’s Sho Sakurai (28) traveled to Moscow to meet a former head of state and to the Berlin wall as part of his special report for Nippon TV’s 24Hr TV, reports Sports Hochi.
Sakurai’s special, titled “嵐・櫻井翔が緊急リポート！ 世界の貧困と格差社会の現実～マンホールで暮らす人々とは～ (Arashi - Sho Sakurai’s Breaking News! The reality of global poverty and social disparity ~people who live in manholes~ )” sent him to Moscow to interview Nobel Peace Prize winning former head of state Mikhail Gorbachev (79).
Mr Gorbachev is widely known as the man whose actions lead to the end of the Cold War around the late 1980s, early 1990s. After Mr Gorbachev heard Sakurai had been interviewing a wide range of people in different places for his “NEWS ZERO” series “世界平和への祈り (Sekai Heiwa heno Inori, A Prayer for World Peace)” over the past year, the nobel prize winner applauded Sakurai for his efforts.
“I am very happy to meet a responsible person like you.
“I hope more and more people will be able to think not only about themselves, but also about the suffering the people around them are going through, and want to help them,” he said.
After Sakurai had introduced himself in Russian, Mr Gorbachev pushed aside Sakurai’s prepared notes.
“I want to hear about your opinions,” he told a confused Sakurai.
The interview went on for more than 30 minutes, during which the two talked about poverty, economic instability, and peace operations.
It has been reported Sakurai was still shaking after his interview.
“It was an incredible privileged to have met a person I watched on the news as a young boy,” he said.
His latest adventure had sent him reporting from Moscow to the Berlin wall, and to Romania.
“It’s been 20 years since the Cold War ended. How has the world changed. I hope I can make people in Japan think about how one person’s situation can affect others,” he said.
“嵐・櫻井翔が緊急リポート！ 世界の貧困と格差社会の現実～マンホールで暮 らす人々とは～ (Arashi - Sho Sakurai’s Breaking News! The reality of global poverty and social disparity ~people who live in manholes~ )” will air on “24時間テレビ33「愛は地球を救う」(24Hr TV 33 ‘Love Saves the Earth’)” on August 29 in Japan.
