Succeeding the Jean-Pierre Pernaut television monument?
It's possible when your name is Marie-Sophie Lacarrrau.
Monday at midday, the 45-year-old journalist inaugurated her first newscast on TF1.
The defector of the 13 Hours of France 2 has made a perfect start to the matter.
Yesterday, the new presenter gathered 6.4 million French people, or 45.5% of the public.
Opposite, his rival Julian Bugier, who also started at the head of the 13 Hours of France 2, attracted 3 million viewers, or 20.9% of the audience.
This first match between the two new incarnations of the 1pm newscast on TF1 and France 2 is final.
Marie-Sophie Lacarrau on La Une is twice as good as Julian Bugier on La Deux.
The gap between the two news even amounts to 3.4 million viewers.
By comparison, this gap was 2.9 million on average last year.
The replacement of Jean-Pierre Pernaut is even double blow.
It widened the gap with the competition and in addition, the public of the ex-icon of the 13 Hours largely responded.
The effect of curiosity playing, Marie-Sophie Lacarrau made more audiences than her predecessor a year ago.
On January 6, 2020, Jean-Pierre Pernaut attracted 5.2 million French people, or 41.3% of the public.
Something to reassure TF1 on its casting, while the leadership of the 1 pm newscast is an industrial issue for the channel.
It now remains to transform the trial over time, once the effect of curiosity has passed.
