In an interview at Parisianthe star host takes stock of the season and plans for the start of the school year with, in particular, the return of “Face à Baba”.

We will stop “Balance your post”.” In an interview given to Parisian , Cyril Hanouna announces the end of its weekly Thursday evening show, broadcast in the second part of the evening on C8 since September 2020. On the other hand, “Facing Baba”a program invented for the 2022 presidential election and which hosted Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Valérie Pécresse and Marine Le Pen, will return “once every two weeks as a bonus under a new formula“.

We will have several guests who have made the news, from the Prime Minister to the head of security at the Stade de France“, completes the host-producer who also recalls that the talk show “broke an audience record on TNT with more than 2 million viewers (for a show in the first part of the evening)“. The first number with Éric Zemmour had actually gathered 2.21 million people and 10.5% of the public on December 16, 2021.

Marlène Schiappa columnist?

Since he reigned supreme at C8, Cyril Hanouna has always liked to poach TV stars shunned or completely dismissed by their original group like William Leymergie, Patrick Sabatier, Vincent Lagaf ‘, Benjamin Castaldi or Julien Courbet. This year, Cyril Hanouna covets a new personality: Laurent Ruquier. “If I have a guy to bring to C8, it’s him. assures the one who has already recruited his companion Hugo Manos in “TPMP People”. “We wanted him to host a somewhat cultural weekly bonus. For me, Laurent is one of the most talented animators, along with Jean-Luc Reichmann. I love it. He knows how to do everything“, he underlines, specifying however that the interested party had declined his proposal.

But we will come back to the charge the following season. Same as the end of Michel Drucker’s contract“, completes the conqueror Cyril Hanouna who, for his part, renewed his contract with the channel of the Canal + group, three additional seasons (until 2026) at 35 million euros per year. On the columnist side, he would love for his band to grow with former government officials like Jean-Baptiste Djebbari or Marlène Schiappa. For the latter, he also has a free antenna project in mind. “I told her about a program called “Allô Marlène” where she would help people in the evening. More on the radio, for that matter. But we don’t have the diffuser“, he adds.
