Note also how the hosts of the show are shown reacting in the PIP. It's an interesting commentary on Japanese television that they do that, kind of guiding the audience's reaction to the segment. It's very much like a laugh track - "react this way to this," or, "this is how this is entertaining." Kind of shows that people everywhere do what they're told, you know?
