Rolf Wouters after TV flop: ‘That’s how it goes these days, you are immediately dismissed’ | TV

Published

He says he never wants to use the word comeback, because he ‘is still there’, but the fact remains that for Rolf Wouters – in addition to icons such as Henny Huisman and Ron Brandsteder, one of the great stars of the 1990s – changed in the media landscape since his television sabbatical.

In the podcast That’s why you stayed at home! Wouters looks back on his return and the SBS6 flop Split Screen which followed. „I am not a quiz expert, but the fact of that quiz was very nice. I was really convinced of that. But in practice I regretted that there was no room to tweak it a little more or make anything more than the quiz itself. There is a difference between a quiz and a TV show that also entertains.”

‘Pretty sin’

According to Wouters, who says that an evaluation has never taken place, the program could have been tinkered with quite a bit. “I am sorry that I was not asked in advance to think about it. And once we were at it, there was no opportunity to give it another spin. (…) That’s how it goes these days: something is tried, it doesn’t work and it is immediately discarded. That’s a shame in some cases. I sometimes see that with other programs as well.”

And according to the presenter, that is due to the renewed media landscape. “You have to look at how many people, for example, on YouTube or as an influencer do things in their own way and are very successful with it. Only, the medium of television requires something different. And that’s pretty hard to explain. Sometimes I see things on TV, especially when it comes to entertainment, and I think: it’s too much ‘format on paper’. And that’s not being carried out by the people who created the idea. The people in the picture have been brought in separately.”

‘Mr Wouters’

That is less the case in a talk show, Wouters knows. “At least, in a good one. Then the personality of the host is omnipresent. And he will undoubtedly direct the editors, because otherwise it won’t work. That’s why Humberto for example other than Jinek† While they are, so to speak, sitting at the same table. That’s how it should be with entertainment. Paul de Leeuw is a good example of this, he gives it his signature. And that’s very good. And I miss that a lot with other interchangeable programs.”

It was indeed a confrontation when Wouters saw himself on TV two years ago. “Then I am afraid of that. Then that young, crazy man is no longer standing there, but suddenly ‘Mr Wouters’ is standing there.”

Eurovision results not adjusted after discovering suspicious votes

The result of the final of the Eurovision Song Contest will no longer be adjusted. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has confirmed the final ranking after investigating possible vote fraud among the juries of six countries.

Without naming the countries involved, the EBU reported on Saturday night when announcing the points in the final that “suspicious patterns” had been detected in the distribution of the jury points in the second semi-final. The points of these countries were therefore recalculated for the semi-final and final. The EBU looked at the given points of neighboring countries.

The umbrella Eurovision organization now reports that it concerns Azerbaijan, Georgia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania and San Marino. Four of the six juries had placed the other five countries in their top five and the other two in their top six or top seven. Of the other fifteen countries that were allowed to vote in the second semi-final, four of these six countries were in the bottom six.

The countries concerned had asked for clarification in recent days. However, due to the “unprecedented” extent of the irregularities, the EBU stands by its previous decision to delete the judges’ points from these countries and not to include them in the final. The EBU calls the “integrity of the voting process essential for the success” of the song contest.

Of the three countries involved, Azerbaijan, Poland and Romania did reach the final. Poland finished in twelfth place as the highest, just below the Dutch entry S10. Ukraine won the song contest. Kalush Orchestra achieved no less than 631 points with the song Stefania, 165 more than the British singer Sam Ryder.

According to sources, the Duffer brothers, the creators of the popular science fiction series, are “over their heads”. They would not have been informed of the game’s arrival.

The images are said to have been taken and shared by someone who bought the game from a store. It monopolygame would not officially be for sale yet. Others suggest that it does and that the sale has already been authorized by mistake. In any case, it would not be available online yet.

The fourth series of the science fiction series is divided into two parts. The first part will premiere on May 27 and the second part can be seen on Netflix from July 1. Creators Matt and Ross Duffer have decided to split the fourth season because the nine new episodes are almost twice as long as those of the previous three series.

A fifth and final series will follow. Fans of the series have been waiting for the new season for more than two years. This is partly due to the corona pandemic, which caused the recordings to be delayed.

One of the most watched Netflix series

Stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin and Noah Schnapp can all be seen in the new series. And among others Regina Ting Chen (Queen of the South) and Grace Van Dien (The Village) have been added to the cast.

Stranger Things debuted on Netflix in 2016 and is one of the streaming service’s most watched titles. The series is set in the 1980s and follows a group of teenagers who come into contact with supernatural powers.
