Shinya, Shingo and Yuuji. 3rd stage were Shunsuke and Drew.
With special guest appearance during Drew's run by Mike Bernardo - so, Jin, since you were hanging with Mike and shown on camera with him, were you translating that time? I'm still sad that Jin was fast forwarded again, especially since his fast forward doesn't make sense in context, with his clear following a slew of fails and being the only clear in the bunch. Granted, I'm also wishing 6 other clears were fast forwarded, since I wasn't happy to see the Clear Chart back, just updated since Shinya was shown.
Glad to see Shinya's 1st Stage clear and at least one stage from Shun (and more Shingo and Yuuji are always good in my book). Still, was missing something from the 2nd Stage... I wonder what... (although I am still ill, I could have just missed it)
No ratings yet. I'm not even sure if they will show the rating since it wasn't a nation-wide broadcast (regardless of it being in the main TBS area). Also, morning shows don't get a lot of attention aside from the NHK morning drama. There is a rating for the Ekiden which is 28.3, a point up from the previous year.
Also, I don't think a rating for this particular showing is important. The replay is important in that TBS remembered that they had this show called SASUKE that they could use to eat up time during the New Years break. Aside from the added content, which would only appeal to hard core fans (the average fan is not miffed about not seeing Ishikawa's runs), it was a four hour commercial for the announcement of the opening of auditions and the possible DVD (they could always cancel it if no interest is shown).

Thanks for the update. If I find anything on my end I'll post about it. I know they were at least interested if they came in 2nd or 3rd so even if it's not published they certainly wanted to see how it fared. Curiosity's sake.
