Saturday, September 24 was the grand premiere of the program Quelle epoque! And she was eagerly awaited. Presented by Léa Salamé – without Laurent Ruquier who did not want to share the co-presentation of the show -, which is accompanied by Christophe Dechavanne, the program was a hit last night with 1.1 million viewers – against 709,000 viewers for the start of the We’re live last year. And for good reason, “moments of TV” as they say have taken place. Marco Mouly, the former promoter of his book called La cavale (Harper Collins editions), the new political editor of Paris Match Laurence Ferrari, the drag queen Nicky Doll or even Yann Moix who hung with Dechavanne were present . There were also two other guests Jean-Paul Rouve and Jean-Luc Mélenchon who had a little hitch. The leader of La France Insoumise was the “midnight guest” of this first issue. And he, who has spoken little recently, is despite himself at the heart of controversy – in addition to that of his big 4×4, there is that of the inappropriate gesture towards a journalist from Quotidien and his clumsy support for Adrien Quatennens, ex-coordinator of LFI who admitted to slapping his wife. What great stories he had to answer. Maybe that’s why he seemed – a bit like always – on the defensive. And it is this poor Jean-Paul Rouve, already insulted by Cyril Hanouna a few days ago in Touche pas à mon poste who paid the price. Finally… him and his dog Gtro, a magnificent Jack Russel who has his own Instagram account. You are there, fiddling with him When Léa Salamé asked Jean-Luc Mélenchon if he knew the dog of the famous Tuche – who was on his master’s lap – the politician left immediately “I have him seen. The poor beast. Why are you persecuting her. She should be at home quiet in her basket and there you are, fiddling with it, and passing it around to you,” he said. A simple “yes” would have sufficed. Calm but certainly a little upset by this attack, Jean-Paul Rouve retorted: “You have an opinion on everything you do.” Honest, Jean-Luc Mélenchon recognized it and added that he also had “theories on everything”. “I noticed yes,” added Jean-Paul Rouve before a small silence settled. No offense to Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the presence of GTro was much appreciated by the other guests, even though the beast drank from the glasses of water of just about everyone. Indeed animal lovers like Christophe Dechavanne were present. Jean-Paul Rouve’s dog also reminded him of his white Jack Russel Terrier Adeck, who unfortunately died in 2020. And the host’s daughter, Ninon, who was present in the audience, was on the verge of tears when she thought about the brave doggie.
