The TV producer who made a lot of variety shows, which are sometimes frowned upon, a blockbuster says, "It's not a variety show unless you can catch a ball that cannot be caught." Just on the corner. "If you don't aim for that, the TV will die." He discloses that the reason why these TV shows are all alike is that the producers are shrunk thinking "they want to get promoted without causing any problems" and make the strike zone narrow down. From the interview with Daily Sports (March 12).
