The last glass of Champagne

Switzerland Has enough celebrities to fill a daily gossip magazine? This question arose in Switzerland, as the 2005 "Glanz & Gloria" was launched. The answer to over 4000 programs: Yes, if you take the concept of celebrity generous. And no Problem with deja-vus. Miss, Federal councillors, aging rock stars – all of the pre-finite glass of Champagne-Show of the Swiss television held in the 14 years grateful to the microphone.

This is soon to end. The end of the year will be disposed of "Glanz & Gloria", at least in its current Form. Longer and more subtle the succession is to be broadcast, with the same presenter trio. The abbreviation "G&G" remains, it stands for "faces and stories". The Name highlights "of the already largely completed the transformation from being purely People magazine to a more substantial company magazine," said SRF yesterday. Also means: The item is credible.

In the visor of the SRG-critics

in fact, G&G has been ridiculed, "" always a little bit, and particularly during the debate on the No Billag as evidence for the waste of toll money. To report on the wedding plans of Ex-Miss did not belong to the public Service, the SRG-critic. Against this Background and in view of the austerity pressure, the SRF wants to make now will be the eve program relevant. The early editions of the "Meteo" and "Tagesschau" at the same time expanded.

Despite the criticism: Around 200'000 spectators each evening, a connected with "G&G". The Show aired a little Homely, with familiar faces such as Christa Rigozzi, Maja Brunner, Rolf Knie, and how this is so, if all of them belong somehow to the family, treated the "G&G" be the celebrity staff always friendly. Scandals? It was not. The most Exciting was when a millionaire's wife Irina Beller – one of the few in this country who do not understand the term luxury lady as an insult – on the "G&G"Sofa lounged, zankte with presenter Dani Fohrler and this red ears got.

but It is not only the Swiss and their difficult relationship to light issues that "G&G" soon be the last glass of Champagne has been drunk. The Zeitgeist also makes a People magazine unnecessary. The Miss-Switzerland-election – previously the epitome of Glamour – is facing an uncertain future, and who wants to be a celebrity, do not need any TV show.
