‘HEY! HEY! HEY!’ to end after 18 years

Fuji TV announced that popular music program “HEY! HEY! HEY!”, which is hosted by comedic duo Downtown, will be having its final show by the end of this year.

The program first aired in October 1994 and has had an average rating of 13.9% since then. During those 18 years, the show has gained popularity and has accomplished its goal as a long-running program. Fuji TV will be reorganizing their programs in October and plans to finish the show by the end of the year. The final episode date and future program are currently being discussed.

HEY! HEY! HEY!’s highest rating was on June 21, 1999 with 28.5%, but it has taken a fall in ratings as of late. On August 20, it had a rating of 7.2%, but Maeda Atsuko’s live AKB48 graduation performance on August 27, brought the ratings up to 14.7%.
