Here’s hoping the filming goes smoothly for Shige!
The official twitter account for TV asahi’s “Dream Festival” listed the acts that would be aired on the terrestrial broadcast and NEWS was included. They also wrote that full performances would not be aired. Since there are a total of 17 acts listed for a 90-minute slot, each act would probably be getting less than 5 mins each, keeping in consideration time for commercial breaks. (Source)

NEWSRING (Nov 21)
It was Massu’s turn to update
Massu wrote that he did a photoshoot with Popolo that day and went up on the roof of a building. He said he likes roofs and if he ever designs a house he’ll make one. He said he doesn’t need a garden, so he’d like a big terrace instead, but then thought that if he had a terrace then maybe he wouldn’t go on the roof, so maybe no terrace afterall.
He thought a lot about what word to pick for shiritori and realize it was making his update late, looking up the difference between the words ‘zehi’, ‘zezehihi’, and ‘ze ga hi demo’. At the end he used ‘ze ga hi demo’ in a sentence asking everyone to be sure to support him.
A graphic design office tweeted about Massu’s pages in “mina”, saying they got to design the special style book in the December issue and that Massu was more mature than usual with the theme, and very cool. (Source)
Go-chan was answering question on twitter and in response to the question “Go-chan, you’ve met NEWS, what are your impressions of each of the members?” he replied, “I’d need 10,000 characters”
Similarly, in response to the question “Talk about your love for Massu!” he said, “I’d need 15,000 characters”
