‘Banzai’ on Fox
Can't blame the Americans for this — it's British-made, satirizing frenetic Japanese TV game shows (and probably way dumbed down from same) — but even though it features some clever graphics (with kanji Japanese characters) and a few ethnic-Asian actors, I thought such things went out with minstrel shows and Mickey Rooney or Jerry Lewis appearing on film with false buck teeth and tape on their eyes. Evidently not on Rupert Murdoch's TV channel.
