People say that this show is really boring. I've learned the hard way not to listen to people all the time because they don't know what I like. I mean from the names I see here, the show looks like it would be pretty fun to watch. Anyways great that the white team one...I'll just have to watch it to see whether I agree with it or not.

No, Kouhaku's boring.

I always say the same thing.

Their guitarist has permanent bitch face.

I would have loved it if the red team won but honestly the white team had better artists. (Tokunaga Hideaki, Saito Kazuyoshi etc)
Horikita Maki was a good host, she was calm, collected and mature and the little Umechan segment on the second half was adorable. (refreshing to see someone not behaving like a 12 yo girl while hosting)
citrine047 5th-Jan-2013 02:32 pm (UTC)
on the contrary, i actually found her hosting pretty bland, almost bordering on lifeless. her nervousness wad showing, but still i liked that she smiled a lot.

Happy it had good ratings,the second part had higher ratings overall.
Still got lots of performances to watch!!
nekobot01 5th-Jan-2013 01:22 pm (UTC)
Yay!! There was a little bump in ratings for Golden Bomber! ♥ I hope they get invited back next year...
citrine047 5th-Jan-2013 02:39 pm (UTC)

THANKS for compiling this. Easy to understand and calculate.
whited_79 5th-Jan-2013 04:19 pm (UTC)
Glad to see K8 with those ratings even though they're the first act in the second half and people were just switching back channels after the news break. :)

stopped after Perfume, what boring acts after that

anyway interesting ratings but I don't think they are so important in comparing faves like most is just timing
crystalluvshun 6th-Jan-2013 09:20 am (UTC)
I have a question, how would you know that the acts afterwards were "boring" when you said that you stopped watching after Perfume's performance?

You can't possibly know how the performances were like if you didn't even watch them...unless you meant that none of the acts who performed after Perfume interested you, so you didn't bother to watch them?

Care to clarify for me?

Maki did a good hosting.
arara_chan 5th-Jan-2013 07:02 pm (UTC)
I guess the spot right before the songs compilation is the best xDD
Go Arashi~ :)
Thank you for sharing :)

Of course, the ratings don't necessarily tell you who's most popular, just that more people were tuning in as it got closer to midnight. Had Ayu gotten the last spot, I'm sure she would've had one of the top ratings, and likewise, had SMAP gotten the first spot, their ratings would be near the bottom. (. . actually, has SMAP ever gotten the first spot? :P)

. . Although, maaaybe you could measure popularity by where the ratings spike and fall. At a glance, looks like Arashi, MomoClo and Princess Princess got big spikes, while Tendo Yoshimi caused a big drop which I guess means EnkaMania ain't what it used to be. ^_^;

Last year, I think it was StBlueMoon posted the ratings from like the last 5 or 6 years (maybe more?) showing that regardless of their position in the lineup, SMAP have gotten the highest ratings for their appearances on Kohaku.

Yeah, even though enka is still hanging in there, I think there were only 3 or 4 enka songs that made the Oricon top 100 for the year, idols are dominating. Also though, TV Tokyo offers enka maniacs like me a 4+1/2 hour enka-fest in the early evening on New Year's Eve so that's where a lot of the hot enka action is :p Some artists, like Kiyoshi, perform on both shows.

Im just too happy momoclo got highr rankings than some stablished acts. they´re definitely on the rise
crystalluvshun 6th-Jan-2013 09:26 am (UTC)
I really enjoyed the show this year, there were some really awesome performances from alot of talented artists!

I'm happy for the white team for winning this year...although there were some great performances from the red team, but to me, the white team really performed better this year overall, and I enjoyed more of the male acts than the females.
