Summer vacations have already started in the first German federal state, in others they are more or less close. The fact that the holidays are a topic at the moment is also seen in the TV ratings. Monday’s quota surprises included two formats of private broadcasters that were recorded far away from Germany. For example, the second season of “Bella Italia” on RTLzwei started with the best market shares. If the first round in 2021 still performed more or less on average (or slightly above), the first broadcast on Monday in prime time took a big step and gave RTLzwei on average a great market share of 8.7 percent . 0.99 million people aged three and over watched.


With camping stories, RTLzwei not only easily overtook Sat.1, but also ProSieben. Sat.1 had almost nothing to report on Monday night, two editions of “111” all about sports balls and eye catchers had a rather sad existence with 4.2 and 3.9 percent of the market among the respective ads. And ProSieben will certainly not explode in celebration this morning given the ratings from last night. The American series “Gray’s Anatomy” and “Seattle Firefighters” had a market share of 7.6 and 7.7 percent – at least for new doctors, that was the best value of the current season.

Back to the holiday theme: “Goodbye Germany” also worked extremely well this week at Vox. New Mallorca Stories gave production a large 9.9 percent market share as of 8:15 p.m. Two hours later, Vox aired a rerun of the format – ratings rose to 11.2 percent in the classic target group. In the overall market it reached 1.29 and then 0.86 million viewers. The daily “Vox Nachrichten” was also strong, which was convincing with 13.3 percent.


It so happened that Vox finished on Monday in second place among those expected in terms of daily market shares: with nine percent, the result was excellent, only RTL was slightly more popular. RTLzwei also did a job above average by 5.8 percent; and even finished before September 1, which will surely be anything but pleased with the 5.6 percent it achieved.
