Dhe exclusive interview with tennis star Boris Becker, who has been released from prison, did not pay off particularly well for Sat.1 in terms of ratings. On Tuesday evening, an average of just 1.55 million people (5.8 percent) wanted to see the more than two-hour “Sat.1 special “Boris Becker”. That is around 200,000 to 300,000 more viewers than the private broadcaster usually achieves with the crime series “Navy CIS” in the same slot. However, significantly more – 5.2 million – tuned into the Becker interview and then continued zapping after a short time, as the industry service dwdl.de and AGF video research explained on Wednesday.
The strongest TV show of the evening was the ZDF junk show “Bares for Rares” with Horst Lichter, which attracted 4.29 million (15.2 percent). A double episode of the doctor’s series “All Friendship” came in the first to 3.99 million (14.2 percent) and 3.97 million (14.1 percent). RTL broadcast the historical drama series “The House of Dreams” – 1.46 million (5.2 percent) wanted to see it.
The ProSieben game show “Joko & Klaas vs. ProSieben on Ice” brought 980,000 fans (4.1 percent) to the house. 950,000 people (3.9 percent) watched the Vox docu-soap “Hot or Schrott – Christmas Special”.
Kabel Eins had the US romantic comedy “E-Mail für dich” with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan to offer. 830,000 people (3.3 percent) opted for this. The Christmas classic “Actually… Love” with a large cast of stars from Hugh Grant to Keira Knightley attracted 800,000 romantics (2.9 percent) on ZDFneo. The animated film “Shrek 2 – The Daring Hero Returns” had 610,000 viewers (2.2 percent) on RTLzwei.
