"Iron Chef" to end its run in March this year


"Iron Chef", the long-running popular cooking battle programme which was renewed just last October, will be ending its run in March. During the April programming changes press conference held on 1 March, FujiTV admitted that despite the fact that they were happy with the quality of the programme, they couldn't deny that the programme was suffering from poor ratings so they had no choice but to axe the programme. However, the programme may return as a SP in future so it doesn't mean that viewers will not get to see it again.

if they had brought chairman kaga back im sure that would have increased ratings too XD and even though im not in japan i never heard/saw any promo about it during cms for other shows or anything either so maybe not a lot of people knew about it?

Without this badass it was doomed to fail:

Honestly it's just really bad timing. You bring back a show a decade later and revamp the hell out of it, it's not gonna feel the same. Plus more competing shows and different audience.
