Sashihara Rino gets own TV show [Sashiko no Kuse ni]

     Continuing with the new shows, AKB48's very own Sashihara Rino will get her very own solo TV show titled [さしこのくせに] (Sashiko no Kuse ni). The full title of the show is [Sashiko no Kuseni ~Kono Bangumi wa AKB to wa Mattaku Kankei Arimasen] (Even though it's Sashiko ~ This program has nothing to do with AKB at all ~). She will be accompanied by comedian Tsuchida Teruyuki, who is also the producer, as the MC of the show. The show aims to train Sashihara into a full fledged idol by getting her to challenge various things. The show will start on 11 January 2011, the show will air every Monday for 30 mins from 25:25PM ~ 25:55PM on TBS.

Sashiko no Kuse ni (さしこのくせに)
Hosts: Tsuchida Teruyuki, Sashiko (Sashihara Rino)
Channel: TBS
Schedule: Weekly every Monday
Timing: 25:25PM ~ 25:55PM (Tues 01:25AM ~ 01:55AM)
Official Website: http://www.tbs.co.jp/sashikonokuseni/

     The first episode will feature a surprise segment with Sashihara Rino and AKB48's face Maeda Atsuko. Sashihara's challenge is to show disrespect to Maeda, her sempai in the group.

     I'm not sure what to think of this honestly. On one hand, I'm really excited for it because it's Sasshi and I know she can make things interesting. On the other hand, I feel that they are pushing her way too much with this. She has been pushed alot recently, first there was that Sashiko 2.5 seconds thingy, then the whole 100 blog post in a day, and now she gets her own TV show featuring her. Ok I get it, you want to push Sasshi. But giving her a full 30 min TV show is just too much. Let me just make this clear though, I don't hate Sasshi for this, I just dislike the management's choices sometimes.

It's quite surprising though, seeing that Sasshi was a nobody, not even a regular kenkyuusei face a few months ago, and now all of a sudden she's being featured across several TV shows and magazines. She's almost caught up with the AKB Tops (Maeda, Yuko, Mariko, Mayu, etc) in this short amount of time, and it's probably the hard-pushing results of her management team.
Can't really say if this is good or bad. Sometimes if u push too hard, it comes crashing down. Sometimes it doesn't.
I just hope Sasshi doesn't crack with all this pressure. ~_~
