Most popular TV programs in France 2018, by audience
During the year 2018, the ten most watched TV programs in France in 2018 were broadcasts of the most important games of the FIFA World Cup 2018. The semifinal game France against Belgium and the final France against Croatia both gathered over 19 million spectators in France. As France won the World Cup final game, the awarding of the trophy ranked third and was viewed by more than 18 million people.  

Most watched genres on TV

  More generally speaking, football was the most watched type of sports on TV in France: Europa League matches as well as friendly matches had a big audience between 2016 and 2018. However, sports programs were not the most viewed programs on television in France, accounting for about 10 percent of the audience in 2017. Indeed, 42 percent of the 100 most viewed programs in 2017 were held by French fiction programs. 

Online TV consumption

  Besides the high audience of TV fiction programs, the online consumption of TV series appears to become a common feature of TV consumption. 37 percent of French people surveyed in 2018 said watching TV series on the Internet several times a week.
