According to this ranking, the most popular televisions shows in France were almost all TV series, while two French shows were also mentioned. Thus, the French live talk show Touche Pas A Mon Poste was ranked third, attracting 8.2 million audience demands. Studies have shown that most of French citizens watch TV series at least several times a week. Despite the success of European TV series like Spain’s La Casa de Papel or Peaky Blinders from the United Kingdom, French appear to be fond of American productions.
