The Star Academy shunned by viewers? This was suggested by the ranking of the favorite programs of the French broadcast this Friday evening on TF1. As it prepares to make its big comeback, tele-hook only grabbed 43rd place in the charts. A score that outraged the tweeters.
This Friday, September 2, 2022, TF1 viewers had an appointment with a new ranking program. The first channel indeed broadcast at 9:10 p.m., The 50 favorite programs of the French. A list established by a survey by the Harris Interactive polling institute, which initially offered the panel one hundred shows.
From “Bigdil” to “Hello, it’s us”, via “Rendezvous in unknown land”, “The Voice”, “The right price”, “Friday everything is allowed”, “Search apartment or house”, “Les Guignols de l’info” or “Dance with the stars”, the evening was an opportunity to dive back into the nostalgia of the past thirty years. A look back at the greatest successes of the small screen, commented by many stars: Arthur, Vincent Lagaf’, Sylvie Tellier, Jean-Luc Reichmann, Nikos Aliagas, Christophe Dechavanne, Jean-Pierre Foucault, Denis Brogniart, Camille Combal or even Philippe Risoli, have over the classification shared their memories as animators or viewers.
A controversial 43rd place
On twitter, many are also those who have given their opinion on the list. Users of the social network were particularly happy to see sequences from the D&CO program presented by Valérie Damidot (ranked 45th) or from the Weak Link hosted by Laurence Boccolini (44th). But the order of the emissions within the classification quickly seemed unfair to them. From the start of the evening, the discovery of the 43rd ranked show came as a shock to them.
After the Wheel of Fortune in 50th or Burger Quiz in 46th, it was the Star Academy that won this 43rd place. A rank that surprised the choreographer Kamel Ouali, former professor at the castle of Dammarie-les-Lys: “There is one 4 too many, it’s 3rd place at least!”, He declared. The tele-hook which had hosted big international stars like Beyoncé or Madonna, was also defended by the winner of season 4, Magali Vaé: “I saw it as the best of schools because we learned from everything […] It’s THE most beautiful show of the time”.
Many tweeters agreed with them. According to them, this show which was born in 2001 deserved a much better place.
And their disappointment was amplified by the discovery of the programs hoisted higher in the hierarchy: and in particular “C’est Canteloup”, which found itself in 38th place. Some Internet users, obviously not a fan of Nicolas Canteloup’s humor, would have greatly preferred that the Star Academy be better ranked than the satirical show. Ditto for Affaire concluded, which arrived a few places before the tele-hook, in 35th position. A classification deemed “shameful” and which made some doubt its reliability.
