How has COVID-19 affected Japanese television?

I know in the west a number of television productions have been shut down and postponed due to the virus and many popular TV presenters have been presenting their shows from home. Since I know there are a lot of variety shows in Japan what measures are they taking with regards to the virus?

    Mostly the same, production and shootings have been suspended. TVs are struggling to find programs to show as substitutes.

    The ubiquitous travel programs are doing reruns. Variety shows, and the daytime wide shows are doing a mix of rerun segments, and talent broadcasting from home.
