Last Saturday, January 9, Telecinco was forced to cancel the broadcast of ‘Saturday Deluxe’ due to the storm Filomena, which flooded Madrid with snow, so the workers could not travel to the Mediaset Spain facilities to take the normal course of the program. Because of this, the leadership of the communication group decided that it would be Sunday when the program saw the light.
Contributors to ‘Saturday Deluxe’
During the broadcast of this space, it was Jorge Javier Vázquez himself who said that « I can see myself working on Sunday as well, » and it seems that the directors of Mediaset Spain have listened to him and have made their wishes come true, since Telecinco has decided to double the broadcast of ‘Saturday Deluxe’ both on Saturday night, January 16, and on Sunday, January 17.
‘Viva la vida’ replaced ‘Saturday Deluxe’ last week
Telecinco usually broadcasts the interview format ‘Saturday Deluxe’ in prime time on Saturdays, but the snowfall in Madrid prevented them from doing so. Thus, As FormulaTV exclusively revealed, Mediaset decided that it would be the weekend afternoon space, ‘Viva la vida’, which would replace the La Fábrica de la Tele program with a special program about what happened throughout Spain.
In this way, with the new strategy carried out by Mediaset España, the group from Fuencarral will foreseeably face the program presented by Jorge Javier Vázquez with the Turkish telenovela ‘Mi hija’. This confrontation placed Antena 3’s foreign series as the first option for viewers, while Telecinco’s space settled for second place with a difference of just over 3 points.
