FOREIGN SHOW: Japan’s Shoten


DETAILS: A Sunday-night TV staple in Japan since 1969, this game show pits six kimono-clad comedians against one another in a contest to see who can think up the best joke on a subject delivered by the host. (It’s sort of like Whose Line Is It Anyway?) The prize for the best joke in each round is a cushion called a zabuton, and the ultimate winner is the first comedian to earn ten cushions. After 40 years, it’s still a big hit. (In 2010, only the Winter Olympics drew more Japanese viewers.)
