A TV re-entry in dispersed order. The youngest will find their way back to the plateaus on Monday – this is the case for the new pair of Telematin on France 2 or journalists from BFMTV. The others will resume on August 30 – the team of Day-to-day on TMC, Love is in the meadow on M6… – or, broadcast on weekends requires, September 4, like Laurent Ruquier and Léa Salamé in We are live on the second channel. The coming weeks will also see the return of flagship shows such as The Voice, in an “All Stars” version or The best pastry chef, with a new host, Marie Portolano, at the helm, while France 2 will draw the telecrochet The Artist… 20 minutes takes stock (not exhaustive) on the main changes and novelties.
- TF1 relies on its cult programs
For this new school year, the first channel is anchoring its program schedule on its fundamentals, which it embellishes with an eventful and spectacular zest. The anniversary season of Koh Lanta (20 years already!) Will have for subtitle The legend and will bring together twenty emblematic candidates (Claude, Clémence, Teheiura, Coumba…) over the course of episodes promising – we hope – generous in performances, reversals of situations and malignant strategies. The big upheaval is in the day of diffusion: the adventure game leaves its usual box of Friday for that of Tuesday. Kick-off this August 24 at 9:05 p.m. TF1 will soon be offering an All Stars version of one of its other flagship programs: The Voice. The telecrochet will blow out its ten candles by making compete for the beauty of the gesture (and the music), dozens of talents passed by the show. Judging by the first images, program devotees can expect nostalgic, surprising and moving Saturday nights. After a two-year hiatus, Dance with the stars will return with a new jury: Denitsa Ikonomova, Jean Paul Gaultier and François Alu will now distribute the points alongside Chris Marques. On the track, are announced Wejdene, Tayc, Lola Dubini or Lââm, among others. In addition, new seasons of Mask Singer and District Z were filmed in early summer. They could land in the semester.
- Movement at France Télévisions
The public service has composed its re-entry grids with a set of musical chairs. Laurent Bignolas left his chair of Telematin. From Monday, in a new setting, Thomas Sotto and Julia Vignali (coming from M6) will succeed him during the week while another pair will be in charge of the animation on weekends: Damien Thévenot and Maya Lauquet. The latter therefore leaves The Daily of France 5 that will continue to present, alone, Thomas Isle, until December. The program will then switch to a weekly version (we’ll talk about it in due course). Agathe Lecaron keeps her seat: it’s her show, Kindergarten, so far broadcast on France 5, which moves to France 2 where it will be scheduled every day of the week at 9:30 am. At 11:20 am, still on the second channel, Bruno Guillon remains in place but, Les Love having bowed out after twenty-six years on the air, he will pilot from August 23, a new game, Each in turn, combining chance, general knowledge and address… On Saturday evenings, a second chair will be installed next to Laurent Ruquier in We are live : Léa Salamé will accompany him throughout the season which will be marked by the presidential election. “We are delighted with this new team. Our first meetings together are going in the right direction ”, had reacted at the beginning of June, with 20 minutes, Philippe Thuillier, co-producer of the talk-show. If Jean-Marc Généreux had hosted alone, last year, the premiere of entertainment Spectacular! on France 2, he will present the second in the company of Cyril Féraud, after changes have been made to the concept. But THE big public service entertainment event will be The Artist : with this live telecrochet, Nagui wants to reveal the authors, composers and performers of tomorrow. For now, a few details have filtered out on the concept, but we should know more immediately, the show should land very quickly.
- M6, flagship programs at the forefront
It’s a bit like for TF1: the emblematic programs of the sixth channel will have pride of place in September. Love is in the meadow will return on August 30 for a sixteenth season of rural romanticism. As an aperitif, this Monday, M6 will give us news of several couples and singles who made the hearts of the public beat through a “What are they now?” “. The marriage of Matthieu and Alexandre, the lovebirds who marked the previous season, will be told in common thread, prepare your handkerchiefs! The best pastry chef will be entitled to a tenth season with a new recruit to animation: Marie Portolano. The one who cut her teeth in sports journalism will add her personal touch. “Where she’s best is when she improvises. She is very funny in real life and brings things that you would not have imagined. You can tell she’s having fun, ”says Jérémie Atlan, entertainment director at BBC Studios, which produces the show. Cyril Lignac, in addition to returning to the jury of the pastry competition, returns this Monday, live at 6:40 p.m., for a new round of All in the kitchen, a successful program born during the first confinement. From now on, it is no longer in his kitchen that the chef will prepare his recipes but in a vegetable garden installed on a roof in Paris …
