It depends how you define "TV critic," but like Yodogawa, many think  
of them as the critics presenting movies when they are broadcast. The  
most famous critics on TV doing that were Ogi Masahiro, Mizuno Haruo,  
and Shirai Yoshio. Even our friend Yomota Inuhiko did it. Some critics  
were also famous as tarento, such as Komori Kazuko.
