Maybe not the creepy dolls but I get what they're trying to do.

I don't think that's creepy. I think it's quite a clever and funny idea. Very Happy

I've seen the full episode which was from Monday. After showing the measures used to fill the audience, they then started showing episodes of N'oubliez pas les paroles! which haven't been shown, but were filmed before the lockdown, starting with the episodes that were scheduled over Easter which were cancelled.

More France 2 game shows have resumed on the schedule.

Tout le monde veut prendre sa place now has no audience and plastic screens between each contestant. Going by Monday's episode, the format has slightly changed to a battle of the Champions where contestants who have previously been in the red chair are playing against the champion with the most wins.

Tout le monde a son mot à dire also returned on Monday with social distancing between the contestants and the co-presenters, they also have a limited audience, with the balloons and mannequins used in N'oubliez pas les paroles! which is also a Banijay production. (Nagui's Air Productions is owned by Banijay)

In another gradual sign of a return to normal, France 2 weather bulletins are back in-vision at 1 and 8pm. TéléMatin is still being produced by Franceinfo.

I believe this is will be the first live music show broadcast in France since the lockdown tonight.

They promoted this live at the end of 20h. It's the first time I've watched it, and (a) it's a really great format (b) they're using a remote operated camera on a track to get close-ups of the guests (though maybe they have before…)

They've announced that Télématin will be back on Monday but so far no news as to whether or not Franceinfo (and to extent, the news output on France 2, 3 and the 1ères) will return to their usual schedules, studios and teams. BFMTV is virtually back to normal (bar late evenings and overnights). Regional editions on France 3 are to stay 'grand région' for the summer, possibly until the rentrée in September.

Considering the trailer has Laurent Bignolas in the main F2 news studio, it looks like at the morning shows are reverting to their previous guises, F2 with fluff and the random off-target political interview, while Franceinfo reverts to rolling news.

I'm not expecting TéléMatin to be fully back to normal with people around the desk, they'll probably have Laurent and a columnist around the main desk, with news and weather coming from the video wall area. (News has always come from a secondary desk, but without the walk between the two desks).

Hopefully this also means F3 bulletins including the Paris IDF bulletin return to their main studio using a separate crew instead of utilising F2 resources.

France 3's 12/13 and 19/20 national bulletins are still coming from the France 2 news studio.

Franceinfo is still simulcasting France 2's Le 6h info, complete with the handover chat between Samuel Etienne and Laurent Bignolas.

Les Z'amours is the latest France 2 game show to return with a limited audience and social distancing measures.

Le 6h30:9h30 is largely back to normal with regular features including a simulcast of Franceinfo radio at 8.30 and the Eco interview. They also repeated 4V from TéléMatin.
