"Japanese TV is regarded as no more than charmingly ridiculous", as Giles Murray, author of the Kodansha bilingual book "All you wanted to know about the UK", puts it - and I concur completely with him.

One of the best and most annoying thing at the same time on Japanese TV are the commercials. They are quite nice or funny, which makes you want to watch them more than the programmes themselves, but they are so frequent (every 2 to 5min) that it becomes irritating once you are watching something more or less interesting.

I'd like, however, to know what those of you who have watched Japanese TV think of it, so as to divide the good from the less good.

Please vote for all the kinds of program(me)s you like on Japanese TV.
