Cologne After “Wetten, dass?” Another semi-legendary show will return to German television: TV Total will return to the program from Wednesday. Sebastien Pofav will be the supervisor. The format should work once a week.
Total TV returns to German TV with new episodes – but then without Stefan Raab as a presenter. On Wednesday, the comedy show will return on ProSieben at 8:15 p.m., the announcer announced on Monday in Unterföhring near Munich. The new host will be comedian Sebastian Pufpaffs (“Pufpaffs Happy Hour”). The 45-year-old won the Grimme Entertainment Award this year. “TV total” ran on ProSieben from 1999 to 2015. At that time, Stefan Rapp had amassed curious discoveries from the world of television and attracted talk show guests via Cocoa as well as celebrities and politicians.
“We’re there to judge, appraise, and punish,” Buffbaf said. He is ten years younger than the inventor of “TV Total” Rap. However, the first trailer doesn’t reveal any major changes to the show. Obviously, the catchy melody should remain the same.
The format is famous for clips with the odd looks of talk show guests, sometimes ripped out of context as a muzzle. For example, in 1999 rapper (55) composed the number one song “Maschen-Draht-Zaun” from this excerpt.
Total TV is a cult program that has produced many great TV moments. Rap won many awards with him. In 2015, he announced a surprise farewell on his screen.
“After six years of Stefan’s management of the last edition, Total TV is back at ProSieben,” said channel president Daniel Rosman. “Lots of fun in its original version. From now on week after week at 8:15 pm.” In the past few days, ProSieben has already sparked speculation in the media about returning with a trailer. The show is scheduled to take place on peak days on Wednesdays.
TV Total’s return coincides with the revival of many other forms of previous shows on German television. Last weekend, for example, ZDF pulled the Saturday night classic “Wetten, dass..?” – again – from the shadows.
