The favorite program of the French is… – 20 Minutes

It’s an amazing podium. When TF1 announced that it was going to reveal the 50 favorite shows of the French, we would have expected that a big brand like Koh-Lanta, The Biggest Cabaret in the World or Top Chef triumph. Well no, in the awards unveiled on Friday evening, these programs rank 8th, 12th and 16th respectively. consumption, launched in 1988 by Emmanuel Chain, is anchored in the audiovisual landscape and in the habits of the public. Purchasing power being the first concern of the French, it is all in all logical that this appointment attached to economic popularization ranks first. “Thalassa” and “Recherche appartement…” in the Top 5 (France 2) and Les Guignols de l’info (broadcast until 2018 on Canal +) complete the Top 3. Thalassa (France 3) and Recherche appartement ou maison (M6) climb to the Top 5. When If we take a closer look at the results of this survey carried out by Harris Interactive among 1,500 people aged 15 and over, representative of the population, we note the very strong appetite for programs promising escape, a change of scenery and discovery. In addition to the good places of Rendez-vous in unknown land and Thalassa, let us mention the sixth position of Echappées belles (France 5) and the tenth of Ushuaïa (broadcast on TF1 until 2014). We could also add the eighth place of Koh-Lanta and the twenty-eighth of Beijing Express (M6) because these adventure games know how to highlight the beauty of their natural settings, as well as the fifteenth of 50 ‘Inside (TF1) , which is regularly interested in heavenly destinations. If we look at television genres, Les 12 coups de midi, 18th, is the highest ranked game. Quotidien (TMC), wins the battle for evening talk shows: C à Vous (France 5) is 40th and Touche pas à mon poste (C8) does not appear in this Top 50. Le Grand journal (27th) and Nulle Part Ailleurs (25th), two cult Canal+ programs dating back to the time when this channel still had its “spirit”, are well remembered. On the other hand, Tout le monde en parle and On n’est pas couche, which have long successfully accompanied night owls on France 2 on Saturdays, are not in this ranking. The “Club Dorothée” is 33rd If a list of more than programs having been broadcast over the last thirty years was submitted to voters to establish this list, they tended to favor those which are still broadcast: three out of five are still on the air. Regarding the most cult of them, Intervilles, launched in 1962 by Guy Lux before crossing the decades in ellipses passing from TF1 to France 2 then to France 3, is 14th, and the Club Dorothée (TF1) 33rd. With Ciel mon mardi and Coucou c’est nous (TF1), Christophe Dechavanne won 29th and 30th places. Jean-Pierre Foucault, he can saber the champagne for the 20th position of Who wants to be a millionaire? but not for Sacrée Soirée which one would have expected to find well ranked and which is not in the fifty most quoted. We imagined that the nostalgia effect would work for Star Academy (TF1 / NRJ12) that the first channel is about to relaunch, but it has to settle for 43rd place – far behind The Voice, 7th. The ranking also shows that the public is not so fond of confinement reality TV. Loft Story (M6) and Secret Story (TF1) are absent subscribers here. No more traces of the Angels of reality TV and other Marseillais around. Respondents favored feel-good shows promising entertainment, benevolence and limited clashes. The survey included annual events such as the Miss France election or the Eurovision Song Contest: the only one that t made its way to the top fifty places is the Enfoirés concert (TF1), emerging in ninth place. Finally, if TF1 does not rank any program in the top five, it is the channel with the most programs ( 20) were acclaimed by voters, ahead of France 2 and M6 (10 each), then Canal+ (4). The top 25 unveiled on Friday on TF1 is as follows: 25. Nowhere else24. Bring in the accused23. Taratata22. France has incredible talent. Daily20. Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?19.
