American cinema has won! This Sunday evening, the eve of Pentecost, TF 1 won the audience match thanks to an American blockbuster. For its first broadcast on television, “Black Widow”, directed by Cate Shortland and led by Scarlett Johansson was watched by 3.78 million people, a figure corresponding to an audience share of 23%, according to the Médiamétrie site. A very good score also confirming the immense family popularity of Marvel heroes. A week ago, “Fast and Furious: Hobbs & Shaw”, with Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, was watched by 2.97 million viewers, or 17.4% audience share.
Comes on the second step of the podium, France 2 thanks to a very French comedy, also in first broadcast on TV, “Mystery in Saint-Tropez” directed by Nicolas Benamou, with the duo Benoît Poelvoorde and Christian Clavier. Nearly 3.25 million viewers chuckled at this schoolboy humor, representing an overall audience share of 17.9% until 10:40 p.m., still on the Médiamétrie site. A figure that has nothing to do with the huge cardboard, of “Antoinette in the Cévennes”, with Laure Calamy, last Sundayand 5.28 million viewers (27.4% audience share).
Start of a new English series on France 3
France 3 comes in third place with the new English series “Rhyme Mortal”, with Lesley Manville.
