And two for France 2. Like last week, the public channel again beat this Monday, January 23, the big evening series of TF 1. This time, it is with the launch of its unpublished series “Black track”, that La Deux came out very well at the top of the hearings. The first two episodes of this fiction which takes place in the mountains, and which is carried by Constance Labbé, Thibault de Montalembert and Hélène Seuzaret, brought together 4.63 then 4.29 million viewers respectively, according to Médiamétrie. The audience share of audiences aged four and over throughout the evening was 22% until 10:50 p.m. It is much less good for women in charge of purchasing under the age of fifty (FRDA-50), with 8.1%. Proof that “Piste noire” attracted a rather old audience.
For “Toulouse-Lautrec High School”, the end was however correct. The French series worn by Stéphane de Groodt, Valérie Karsenti and Rayane Bensetti picks up some color from the previous week. 3.34 million regulars watched the two episodes, or 17.4% of the public. But the front page can be satisfied with the good financial operation since it is the leader on the strategic target of its advertising management with 29.3% of market share on women responsible for purchases under fifty years old.
M 6 and Arte side by side
Behind this strong competition, the other channels are suffering. France 3 takes third place on the podium with a new rebroadcast of ” Do not tell anyone “. Guillaume Canet’s film, worn by François Cluzet and a host of French film stars (Marina Hands, André Dussollier, Marie-Josée Croze, Kristin Scott Thomas, Nathalie Baye, etc.) attracted 1.69 million curious people, i.e. 8.8% of the public.
The fourth place is hotly contested between the cinema evenings of M 6 and Arte. At the photo-finish, the Franco-German channel leads with just over 1.2 million viewers with the Hollywood classic “In the heat of the night”, with Sidney Poitier, against just under 1.2 million viewers for the Six with “Seven Sisters”, an American science fiction film starring Noomi Rapace, Glenn Close and Willem Dafoe. But the latter wins in PDA due to the longer duration of its film (6.3% of PDA, against 5.8% for its evening rival). Of the FRDA-50s, M 6 is a clear winner with 13.2% of the target (against 1.2% for Arte).
It should be noted that C8 and its “Commissioner Magellan” (4.2% of PDA) sharply beat TMC, which nevertheless offered “Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back” second part of the first saga with the original cast: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher (3.8%).
