On May 27, the two big Saturday evening shows "Do you understand fun?" and "Beat the Star" competed against each other in the ratings duel. With a clear winner.
Berlin/Cologne - On Saturday evening, German television once again offered great entertainment. While Barbara Schöneberger (49) deceived her celebrity guests on ARD's "Do you understand fun?", this time two couples competed against each other on ProSieben's "Schlag den Star". However, who took the victory in primetime?
"Understand fun" versus "beat the star"
If you turned on the TV on Saturday evening, you were spoilt for choice. Whether football, East Frisian thriller or a big entertainment show - there was something for everyone. In "Beat the Star", presenter Elton (52) let two couples fight against each other. In the end, the two "The BossHoss" singers Alec Völkel (51) and Sascha Vollmer (51) were defeated by the comedians from the podcast "Bratwurst und Baklava" Özcan Coşar (42) and Bastian Bielendorfer (39).
Also "Do you understand fun?" -Presenter Barbara Schöneberger once again had a large star line-up ready. Among others, "Bergdoktor" legend Hans Sigl (53), Ernie and Bert from "Sesame Street" and pop singer Ben Zucker (39), who was tricked by his sister Sarah (37), were at the start.
Clear winner in the ratings battle between "Beat the Star" and "Do you understand fun?"
Nevertheless, it was not enough for the odds victory. The clear winner of Saturday is not only FC Bayern Munich, who - surprisingly for many - was able to secure the championship after all, but also TV channel Sky, which broadcast the last matchday of the Bundesliga season. A total of 41.5 percent of the relevant target group of 14- to 49-year-olds watched the long-distance duel between the record champions and Borussia Dortmund, as reported by the industry service dwdl.de. First place in the total audience aged three and over once again goes to ZDF. The film adaptation of "Ostfriesenfeuer", the crime thriller by bestselling author Klaus-Peter Wolf, was watched by 5.90 million viewers, which corresponds to a market share of 28.5 percent.

Which number of spectators set the record in Germany?
On 13 July 2014, ARD made television history: the World Cup final between Germany and Argentina (1-0 a.e.t.) was watched by an estimated 34.65 million people on their own television sets. Crazy: People who watched the game at public viewing or in bars, for example, were not included in this count. The actual number is therefore likely to be considerably higher.
There is also a clear winner in the duel between the two major entertainment shows. In the relevant target group, 0.48 million viewers (market share of 16.3 percent) tuned in to ProSieben and thus secured the victory for "Beat the Star". ARD is one place behind with "Do you understand fun?" and 0.47 million (market share of 12.8 percent) and has to admit defeat.
