Just a short, sad update: as I reported earlier, the excellent revival of the legendary Iron Chef (Ryouri no tetsujin) program has been a flop, with very low ratings (as low as 5% of the viewing total in its time slot). On March 1st, Fuji Television formally announced that it will cease airing as of the end of March. (Source: various Japanese news sources, e.g. <a href="http://www.j-cast.com/2013/03/01167764.html"">here)
I really liked the new Iron Chef, so I'm so sad about this. Oh well.
