Like Dallas, TV is a ruthless universe.
Drop in audience, skids, competition: no mercy. The seats are expensive and the channel bosses are terrible. So we looked at the wildest layoffs, the ones that make you say ” Oh yes anyway“. Hoping to keep my place at Topito after this top.
Please what… Not a Julien Lepers… Not like that, not now…
Alright, we’ll see. In the meantime, let’s go cheerfully. Finally cheerfully…
1. Julien Lepers
I AM I AM I AM A TV HOST BORN IN 1949 HAVING ANIMATED THE GAME “QUESTION FOR A CHAMPION” FOR 30 YEARS BEFORE GETTING RELEASED BY SAMUEL ETIENNE. I WAS ON ALL THE TV SETS FOR 2 YEARS TO SAY THAT I DIDN’T HAVE TIME TO SALUTE MY TEAMS. I SPEAK VERY FAST AND I’M OFTEN ANNOYING I AM I AM I AM ?????
2. Sebastien Thoen
Do you remember when Canal had humor? Ah, the good old days.
Now it’s a channel that fires its collaborators when they (brilliantly) parody another group channel. Finished “Action Discrète” for Sébastien Thoen and place to “Action aux Prudhommes”.
3. Stephane Guy
” I want to salute my friend Sébastien Thoen who didn’t have the outing he deserved. We wish him good luck. » said Stéphane Guy in the middle of a match a few days after the case mentioned above.
He was fired a month later. The Canal spirit.
4. Bernard Montiel
Invited to the radio, Bernard Montiel who is then already tanned and still presenter of Video Gag goes on a kamikaze operation. He massacres the chain, the animators and everything that moves. He even admits live “ get pissed off in Video Gag but come to pick up a bunch of money“.
Suffice to say that it passes moderately at TF1. Montiel is fired the next day and replaced by Sébastien Folin.
5. Olivier Chiabodo
BOUUUUUUUUH THE CHEATER BOUHHHHHHH
In 1997, Olivier Chiabodo, co-host ofIntercity (cows, all that) is caught in the act of cheating during an event, by favoring a city to the detriment of its competitor.
Licensed by TF1 in stride. Take that Mont de Marsan.
In 1997, Dorothée and her entire club continued to score audiences among the youngest.
But that’s not enough for TF1 (even them!), and the channel decides to abruptly part ways with the host during the summer. That said, after years of recording 40 hours of program per week, the retreat must have been good. Thank you for everything Dodo.
7. William Carnimolla
Do you remember William?
Of course, iconic presenter of “Belle tout nue”. But unfortunately while the show is a hit, William is fired by M6. There is talk of “unmanageable diva behavior” behind the scenes.
“We called my wife who is the manager of my box to tell her in five minutes that it was over”
And so disappears a monument. Cry little foam man… Cry…
The duo Fred and Jamy seemed eternal…
Well no. In 2016, France 3 decided to fire Fred. And even worse, to keep Jamy.
There must have been quite a vibe in the truck after that.
A joke about domestic violence at Hanouna, a bad buzz on Twitter and a dismissal in stride.
Surely the most deserved of this top 10. Go hop, it releases.
