After only three episodes and catastrophic ratings: Sat.1 is moving its new reality show from prime time to late in the evening from Wednesday.
Sat.1 pushes “Club der Gute Mood” from prime time into the late evening. On Wednesday, June 1, the fourth episode of the reality show airs at 10:30 p.m. instead of 8:15 p.m. The broadcaster announced this via Twitter. The feature film “Fack Ju Göhte” takes over the vacated prime-time slot.
Catastrophic ratings for Jenny Elvers and Co.
“Club of Good Moods” started on May 1st with some media buzz. After all, it was already known in advance that Jenny Elvers (50) and Marc Terenzi (43) had fallen in love during the recording.
But the number of viewers in the opening episode was disappointing. Only 0.73 million people tuned in. In the advertising-relevant target group, it was only 0.23 million. That resulted in a catastrophic market share of four percent.
In the second episode, the numbers increased minimally, to 0.27 million viewers or five percent in the courted target group. But in episode three, the rate dropped to its lowest point: 2.5 percent market share. Apparently no longer acceptable for Sat.1, the station pulls the emergency brake.
A tame counter-proposal to “The Good Mood Club” fails
Sat.1 had sent “Club der Gute Mood” as a kind of alternative to “Celebrities under Palm Trees”. The rowdy predecessor and quota hit was criticized in 2020 for bullying several candidates against Claudia Obert (60). In 2021, Sat.1 pulled the plug after homophobic statements by Prince Marcus (55) and the death of Willi Herren (1975-2021).
