It's been announced on the NTV site today that there will be another episode of it on 13th April, 23:59 - 24:54! This time, it'll be known as "4 vs X", and comedians Hakata Daikichi & Hanamaru and Takahashi Shigeo (Savanna) will join them as presenters.
Let's hope this means that they're one step closer to getting a regular programme! :D
Just read that Koyama's getting a new programme too, "Kyaraoke 18 ban", every Sunday 17:00 - 17:25, starting 12th April!
The programme will be co-hosted by Hatori Shinichi (who's currently hosting Mirai Theatre with KoyaShige), and will be a singing programme.

On Monday 6 October 2014, News will have a special variety show called 4x9! At this stage, it is being billed as a special one off show, but we all hope that there will be more episodes. Please read on for the best ways to show your support!
4x9 (よんたいきゅう) (in romaji: yontaikyuu) is a variety show airing on NTV, Monday 6 October 2014, starting from 23:59.
The show will feature all four News members interacting via the internet with 9 other people. (This explains the 4x9 title).
Hopefully the show will be funny, and bright, and very engaging. From the previews, it appears that the News members are dressed in handsome black suits. Definitely a show that News fans will want to watch! Check out http://www.ntv.co.jp/4tai9/
The NTV Promotions:

Last Sept 21st, V6 Junichi Okada was the guest in Mirai Theater where NEWS‘ Keiichiro Koyama and Shigeaki Kato also act as hosts. During Okada’s guesting, he told some of his impressions about NEWS as his juniors (kouhais). Although other members of NEWS have guested in the show, it was the first time that someone from Johnny’s have been featured.
At the start of the program, Okada was asked how often does he interact with NEWS, “Actually, it’s not so often,” he admitted. Koyama admitted that they were reluctant to have Okada as a guest. “It was easier if other actors come as a guest, but if it was a senior, we’re like, “No! No senior!”.
Announcer Hatori took the chance and asked Okada on what he thinks about NEWS as his kouhai’s. “I think that they are awesome. As four members, they have gone through a lot and they survived. I believe that all of them have become good men,” he said, “But Tegoshi is a bit odd [different], isn’t he?” Okada added that earned a laughter from Koyama and Shigeaki.
(there's yuzu on the same day, i loved yugomazu on music fair :D)
NEWS in august & september, TegoMasu in october, Koyama in november.
what's in store for december? :D
Tegomasu will do a special crosstalk with Sukima Switch while Tegoshi Yuya will have a premium talk session with Tokita Shintaro. Both bands will also perform on the premium show.
TM will perform Mahou no Melody and will have a collaboration with Sukima Switch with the song Zenryoku Shounen. That's all i can read and understand, so further details are welcome.
Yay! i can't wait, i'm so sure it would sound so lovely.
The official site has a preview video up for next week, and although Shige is not shown he is listed as a guest. Next week the show will be looking at "The Tale of Genji"- 'interviewing' the author Murasaki Shikibu and investigating the rumor that she was in a relationship with a major politician of the time.
The show airs every Monday at 7PM on TBS. ( Cut for a screencap of his name listed on the official site )
Both Koyama and Shige, along with entertainer Bananaman, will be on "Guruguru Ninety Nine" on May 12th. They're listed as guests for the Kabuccha yo! corner. Gurunai airs every Thursday from 7:56 to 8:54PM on NTV (official site).
Shige will also be guesting on next month's Shonen Club Premium. He is a talk guest with Joshima Shigeru of TOKIO! Plus, Tegomasu will be on the premium show! (thanks aitamashii!)
On a similar note, the new variety show Bakushou Mondai no Taihen Yoku Dekimashita! which Shige will be a regular on starts tonight (04.22) at 7PM on TV Tokyo! Official site.
It has been announced that Massu will be guesting on K-chan NEWS (of course, with Kei-chan) on the 21 March broadcast. They will be reading out messages they have received from the fans after the earthquake.
I believe the show will be pre-recorded like usual, but at least it was recorded after the earthquake. This tells us that they are both alright and still in the state to host a radio show.
Just one thing I want to ask, does anybody have a good way to record the show? The service neko_lovesyou uses is often down, so I was wondering if anyone else could help record this meaningful episode. This will be the first time they will be on air (TV or radio) ever since the earthquake happened, not including the online messages.
Would really appreciate anyone who can help. Thanks so much.
