Cyril Hanouna, a renowned French television host, basks in the glory of a triumphant week, with his show 'Touche pas mon poste' (TPMP) hitting a season-high audience of more than 2.4 million viewers. This feat positioned the show as the talk show leader among the general public and made it the third national channel.
Adding to Hanouna's gratifying week was the 'Complément d'enquête' episode on France 2, dedicated to him. While it failed to deliver the anticipated explosive revelations, it set a record for France 2 with 3 million viewers, surpassing the previous high of 1.7 million viewers for a show about PPDA. The success of the episode in France contrasted with its performance in Belgium, where it failed to make it to the top 20 for the evening, garnering less than 100,000 viewers.
TPMP Week End's Review of Complément d'enquête
On 'TPMP Week End,' Hanouna and his panelists meticulously dissected the 'Complément d'enquête' episode, criticizing its lack of editorial line and perceived disdain for the audience. Jacques Cardoze, a former presenter of 'Complément d'enquête,' highlighted the investigation's shortcomings, particularly the lack of psychological insight and the failure to delve into Hanouna's childhood. Hanouna addressed various allegations made in the show, including dictated interventions and the portrayal of fake police officers, both of which he refuted. He went on to promise the release of images on social media to clarify the issues raised.
In a segment on C8's 'PAF Ouvert à tous,' Hanouna took a playful jab at the France 2 program, even dialling Delphine Ernotte, the head of France Télévisions, to gloat about the high ratings. Hanouna, despite feeling under the weather, put on a show on Friday night, celebrating the record audience as his own victory.
