There are things that we think are immutable and yet, the France Télévision program Numbers and letters will stop definitively at the start of the school year in September. According to the group’s director of broadcasts and programs, Stéphane Sitbon-Gomez, the program will not be renewed next season.

Previously daily, the show has been rescheduled for weekends in the late afternoon on France 3 since the start of the 2022 school year.

This emblematic game show was launched in 1972 on Antenne 2. Which still gives us 52 years of existence, including 32 presented by Laurent Romejko. She is also part of one of the oldest shows in Europe, Numbers and letters has been exported to many countries, from Belgium to Australia. The program attracted tens of thousands of candidates and brought out hundreds of clubs, outside of TV, which have their tournaments and their champions. The show has also inspired numerous parodies, such as with Les Inconnus or even the actor Jean-Pascal Zadi.

The deprogramming of Numbers and letters marks the end of an era. The show will have left its mark with many cult moments: the mental arithmetic test and its “the count is good”, the vocabulary test with its alternating drawing between consonants and vowels, its credits, Western Patrol, appeared as early as 1972 as well as its slightly overconfident candidates using words such as “sluts” or “assholes”.

Nostalgia when you hold us:

A farewell show will bring together Patrice Laffont and Laurent Romejko, the two flagship presenters. To celebrate the end of this cult show, we have compiled some cult moments.
