TV Shows - Banzai

Banzai was a comedy gambling gameshow spoofing Japanese gameshows and general television style. It was produced by Radar, part of RDF Media. Each segment of the show was a silly or bizarre contest. Members of the viewing audience were encouraged to bet with each other on the outcome of each segment. When Fox picked up the show, the Media Action Network for Asian-Americans protested outside a presentation of the show in Hollywood. Group co-founder Guy Aoki told BBC News, "It's just all the backward images of Asian-American people. This is like an Asian minstrel show. Can you imagine the black version of Banzai?". When sponsors were alerted to the content of the show, many dropped their sponsorship, and as a result, Fox canceled Banzai.

2 I never understood this stupid show. I always wondered, why not just put a Japanese game show on TV? Why would I want to see a bunch of British people making a somewhat racist attempt at recreating one? (Which they didn't do very well.) -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on December 14, 2009, 11:51 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
