The news has just broken: the show “Touche pas à mon poste”, presented by Cyril Hanouna, will no longer be broadcast live.

A tough blow for Cyril Hanouna and his clique: his show “Touche pas à mon poste”, broadcast from Monday to Thursday at 9:15 p.m. on C8, will be deprived of live broadcasts from next September.

The TNT channel stated this Tuesday, July 9, before Arcom that it would broadcast the television show with a delay ranging from 15 to 45 minutes. This decision was taken in order to avoid the excesses of the host Cyril Hanouna. As a reminder, the latter has been sanctioned on multiple occasions.

“C8 is committed to implementing a new process that will allow us to guarantee control of its broadcast,” said Gérald-Brice Viret, CEO of Canal+ France, C8’s parent company.

Before adding:

“We are considering a time delay of at least 30 minutes, in agreement with Cyril Hanouna. All the different shortcomings are in this broadcast.”

Nearly 8 million in fines

The least we can say is that this measure does not delight the president of the Canal+ group, Maxime Saada:

“Cyril Hanouna is the only one who can do so many live broadcasts in a day. The others are not capable of it. (…) He is a strength,” he said.

In recent years, the C8 channel has received more than 7.5 million euros in fines due to the controversies caused by Cyril Hanouna.

Note that the largest part of this total comes from a record fine of 3.5 million euros in February 2023. At the time, the controversial host had insulted LFI MP Louis Boyard.

The most recent fine – for 50,000 euros – dates back to mid-June. On the set of TPMP, disabled people were wrongly presented as drug addicts hooked on the “zombie drug”.
