Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The difference in ratings is interesting. While Ségo's 8.9 million vs Sarko's 8.2 million isn't an enormous difference, it's still rather large (700,000 viewers). I'm not sure what significance, if any, it has, but could it perhaps suggest that people have heard "enough" about Sarkozy as compared to being more curious about Royal's program? I don't how that corresponds to the reporting in French media, though.
Perhaps the easier explanation is that the competing channels showed more interesting programs during Sarkozy's broadcast...
