IN JAPAN: KYODO reported the TV viewer rating for Japan's World Cup match Friday against Greece in greater Tokyo "was the lowest since Japan's 1998 debut in the tournament, apparently due to the live broadcast taking place during morning commuting hours." Ratings agency Video Research Ltd. said Monday that the average rating of the group-stage match aired by Nippon Television stood at 33.6% in the Kanto region centered in Tokyo, and 33.1% in the Kansai region centered in Osaka. The rating during the match, which finished in a 0-0 draw, peaked at 43.3 % in Kanto and 42.9% in Kansai, both during the first half. The "previous low through all five World Cup matches Japan has participated in since 1998 was 37.2 percent logged in 2006 in a game with Brazil" (KYODO, 6/23).
