in the Face of the fall of the hearings, and only three weeks after the start of a new grid much more encrypted, the pay channel is back. It extension of a half-hour to its programmes in the clear before the evening.
The chain will now be clear from 19H05 to 21: 00 (instead of 19: 35 to 21: 00), said the director of the antennas Gérald-Brice Viret, with “Le Grand Journal” who becomes fully clear, rather than be half-encrypted during its first half-hour, with the information revealed by the site Puremedias. Within this slice, the programs will be swapped : it will start with “The Big Log”, new issue of Mouloud Achour (who just started up here at 20: 20), followed by the “Grand Journal” presented by Victor Robert 19: 15, the “Petit Journal” of Cyril Eldin at 20: 30, and then “Catherine et Liliane” at 20: 45 cet, before finishing off with “The Horns” at 20H53.
The string is not openly seek to push back the hearing. “We thought it was more appropriate to open 30 minutes earlier to go and fetch more leads”, said Gérald-Brice Viret, who speaks only of an “adjustment” to align the emissions”. “If the audience increases, so much the better”, he however added, “but we do not carry a look so negative on the hearings”.
The group reflects, however, a new formula of the “Petit Journal”, the hearing of which has fallen under 400,000 viewers when it exceeded 1.2 million when it was hosted by Yann Barthes the last year.
As for the “Grand Journal”, its hearing this week on its part in the clear, was of the order of 130,000 people in just these past few days, very far from the 600,000 of last year and 1.5 million viewers for 2013-2014.
