Elsener must go: A defeat for the SRF and all of us

you Take the quality to the scale, it's understandable and totally okay, that Michael Elseners Late-Night program will. Because in the great Whole, could not convince the "Late Update", which was shown on Sunday evening on the old slot of "Giacobbo/Müller". To were numerous flat punchlines. And the weak moments, which often lasted many broadcast minutes.

Elsener failed not least due to the own demands and the high expectations on the part of the audience, it gave. Before the 34-Year-old for SRF made his broadcast, he had with Facebook Videos, to conform to the current gold standard in terms of Satire: they were funny, but at the same time, politically, in the best, so meaning of enlightenment. About Elseners Video for the No-vote-vote, or the Clip, in which he ad-Christa Rigozzis dissected deals. Both Videos were clicked on the Internet hundreds of thousands.

"that Is good, is that bad?" Or: What had made Michael Elsener on Facebook to Christa Rigozzi, is simply great. Video: Youtube/Michael Elsener

Elseners Facebook Videos to hope that he could be our Swiss John Oliver or Jan böhmermann nourished. So on Sunday evening, the actuality so to comment on that about it is spoken. This was not possible. But: The rates of Elseners "Late Update" were not as bad as one might expect. They were just as good as the "Deville", the other Swiss Late-Night Format, which was to be seen in the exchange with Elseners Format.

yearning for the Emil-humour

In the "Late Update" there were always Highlights. Not least because the show was a platform for other comedians and satirists: thanks to the "Late Update" was awarded to Renato Kaiser in the role of a foreign reporter in a first stage, we fell in love with Matto Kämpfs neurotic loser characters, Patti Basler led the Federal Council, Maurer on the ice. And Elsener was able to establish with his Ronny Buser a new figure, which should correspond to the Swiss longing for the indestructible Emil-humour.

"If you are now a "Leader" in German?" –Patti Basel Ueli Maurer leads for the "Late Update" on the ice.

Two seasons or a total of 18 shipments were of Elseners "Late Update": a Little time to establish a new Format. "Deville" by contrast, all six seasons on a send space on Friday evening had to try and land a first success, before the Format changed on the Sunday evening. These forward Elsener had not. The deposition of the "Late Update" is, not, therefore, just a little hastily, it is also a crushing defeat for the Swiss television. This is because, unlike "Deville", which is produced by an external production company, was Elseners "Late Update" produced by the Swiss television itself.

The deposition of Elseners "Late Update" is not to be understood least of all, politically: in the Past month, the "Sunday paper" made public, that the FDP-the intervention of the President of Petra Gössi in the case of SRF-in-chief Gilles Marchand. Because of the Sketches in which the ownership was imperative, driven by the free-minded on the top. That was very funny, very sharp – exactly what we want to see on Sunday evening.

Already at the Premiere of his "Late Update" had Elsener taken care of with an Essay on the FDP for a splash – and the Slogan "Fuck de Planet" embossed, which was then taken up by the students on the "Fridays for Future"Demos. On signs with a debit in the FDP-Blue.

Joined Petra Gössi mad: Sketch of Elseners "Late Update".

You can imagine the nervousness it will have on Swiss television triggered the Intervention of the FDP-President at SRF-chief was made public. Only a month later, we moved to the satirical format of the plug. Therefore, the deposition of Elseners "Late Update" is also a defeat for the SRF audience, and for the fee-payers, so for all of us. And that's not okay.
