Pro Hour dominates its evening slice but has to endure strong competition from BFMTV for the edition delivered between 9am and 10:30 am. Pascal Praud recorded a reinforcement this Wednesday, September 9, 2021.

Pascal Praud failed to perform flawlessly at the helm of L’heure des pros on CNews. This Wednesday, September 8, 2021, if it outclassed other news channels in the evening, the competition from BFMTV was too strong in the morning with a decline in audiences from one Wednesday to the next.

The kick-off of the monumental trial of the attacks of November 13, 2015 in Paris with the provocative behavior of Salah Abdeslam and the national tribute paid to Jean-Paul Belmondo were among the main topics addressed by the journalist. He was able to count on the return of Gilles-William Goldnadel, the criminal lawyer who decided to leave Les Grandes Gueules during the offseason because of an overloaded schedule.

At the end of the program, Pascal Praud left it to Julien Pasquet to present the Soir Info program on stage, to be found shortly after 9 p.m. and a short issue of L’heure des livres.

CNews ranked second among morning news channels convincing 220,000 diehards and 7.9% of the general public, down 0.7 points from the previous Wednesday. The Either edition, clearly positioning channel 16 ahead of its direct competitors, was able to count on 578,000 curious visitors (2.7%) with a gain of 0.3 points.

Bruce Toussaint delivered a solid morning between 9 am and 12 noon with the average presence of 242,000 individuals and 7.8% of viewers, including 10.6% of 25-49 year olds. In the evening, Elisabeth Martichoux did not report the low audiences conceded by Ruth Elkrief on LCI with a market share of 0.5%. The latter, at the helm of a debate between the five candidates for the ecological primary, brought together 200,000 curious and 1.1% of 4 years and over as a bonus.
