うたばん (Romaji: Utaban or UTABAN) is a popular show that has been on the air since 1996. It airs every Thursday night on the Tokyo Broadcasting System. The show is hosted by Ishibashi Takaaki (a comedian and former member of music group YAEN) along with Nakai Masahiro (of SMAP). A typical show involves a chat with artists that come on to promote their latest singles, a performance or two, and funny games and skits, usually with guests.
