French TV

Old and new

By the way, this is what the combined morning news simulcast on France 2 and Franceinfo TV looks like these days:


With very little in the way of TéléMatin. There are some VTs from the columnists who are all at home, which jar with the largely rolling news format, along with 4V (Les Quatre Vérités) which feels more at home on Franceinfo than on TéléMatin.

Also worth noting that if you watch on France 2, the lower thirds are largely missing except for the yellow strap and have the TéléMatin clock.

BFMTV being joint 5th with France 5 is unheard of in the UK market even during a pandemic. News channels simply don't rate as well as a standalone.

As I have a parent who is French speaking, her viewing habits have changed when her regular daytime shows are now repeating old editions. C8's strand of animal related shows on weekday mornings have proved to be popular with my mother, followed by France 2's lockdown matinee film.

I don't know with the relaxing of the lockdown in France from May 11th will see some regular programming return in the near future.

Are RMC, which look to be sister channels of BFMTV, general programming channels?
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

I believe RMC Découverte initially focused on documentaries, but judging from its current lineup, it seems to be going the rednecks-on-parade route, much like Discovery and the History Channel.

BFMTV being joint 5th with France 5 is unheard of in the UK market even during a pandemic. News channels simply don't rate as well as a standalone.


It's also interesting that BFM TV, LCI, and C News all saw large year-to-year gains due to the pandemic, but Franceinfo TV didn't and even managed to finish dead last among the FTA channels. They seem to be doing something wrong, their wonderful on-air look notwithstanding.

Could it be at a time of crisis you turn to what you know and trust the best?

France 2 have reinstated their weekday afternoon programming. Ca Commence Aujourd'hui is back in the studio with only the presenter and expert in the studio, with guests on Skype/Zoom and a new opening title sequence showing people at home on webcams.

Je t'aime, etc is also back later this afternoon, as the trailer with presenter Daphne Burki was at home, I suspect it'll be largely Zoom based.

TéléMatin by Franceinfo continues, alongside weather forecasts being produced from home.

EDIT: Je t'aime, etc is also back in the studio with the main presenter on the catwalk or at the desk and two columnists using the desk social distancing. Guests are on Skype.

France 2's version of Don't Forget the Lyrics has a unique way of resolving their audience issues.
