While fans are wondering if Maxim Galkin and Alla Pugacheva will return to Russia, a replacement was found for the comedian on Channel One. On Saturday, May 7, Nikolai Tsiskaridze made his debut as the host of the Tonight Show. A charming dancer in the race for a place on the air, they say, jumped over venerable competitors: Dmitry Nagiyev, Alexander Oleshko and Dmitry Borisov. However, opinions about the replacement among viewers and experts differed greatly.

The only thing everyone is in solidarity with is the noticeable excitement of Nikolai Maksimovich. In front of the camera, he was not at all as liberated as his predecessor. However, someone liked the embarrassment, coupled with the intelligence of Tsiskaridze: they say that it is very rare to meet a real person among plastic TV figures. But there were also those who criticized the artist for timidity and excessive softness, which they equated with unprofessionalism. So, for example, producer Dmitry Ashurov said that Tsiskaridze’s people could not be captivated, and predicted low ratings for the program.

And these expectations were justified. The ratings were declassified by the actor Stanislav Sadalsky: it turned out that Tsiskaridze was watched twice as bad as Andrei Malakhov. The share of views of “Tonight” was 9.9, while the program “Hi, Andrey!” – 20.9.

– I don’t watch TV programs (boring and deceitful), only Internet series and movies. But the rating agencies are still sending me new numbers,” Sadalsky wrote on his blog, attaching screenshots of studies for May 7th. – The program “Tonight” and with Max (Galkin. – Ed.) Was bad, and with Maksimych (Tsiskaridze. – Ed.) It got even worse … Well, Malakhov, that Malakhov … Art is tested.

Recall that the entertainment TV show “Tonight” goes on the air on Saturdays on Channel One. The first host of the project is Andrey Malakhov, he was replaced by Maxim Galkin and Yulia Menshova. The last time the show was hosted by one Maxim Galkin: in the studio with the stars he discussed various topics. It is not yet clear how long Nikolai Tsiskaridze will stay in the project: they say that the producers intend to try several new presenters on the air.
