Though I'm not a huge fan of the group I'm happy to see them get something like this. They seem to have mostly bad news of late so this is a nice change.

Johnny gives them regular single releases,CM´s, stage shows, drama for Kame, now new variety show..
Johnny can try as hard as he wants but KT won´t be as popular as before.
Their popularity is going more and more down which is a sad thing.
I don´t think more pushing will help to rise their popularity.

It´s not something against Anonymous comment but I just find it sad that many people immediately talk about KAt-tun´s sinking popularity, whenever they only hear "Kat-tun".
I´m so happy for that variety !
In earlier times, I loved watching "Cartoon Kattun" and I´m just happy, they get a chance for a show again.

Well it's hard to keep popularity like the kind they had when they debuted. But at the same time you can't completely count them out as there hasn't been a group that hasn't had a low period. Only time is going to tell if they have any chance of regaining popularity or not.

@ Chris

I think their popularity has more or less leveled for now. They tend to sell about the same amount for their singles so i think if there was a time for Johnny's to see about growing their fan base again it would be now that it looks to have stabilized after Jin's departure.
