Let’s see what 2018 will bring to the world of television!

First of all, let me wish you a successful and happy new year 2018!

Last year, we announced a new collaboration with the London-based company TAPE Consultancy.

This partnership allows us to keep an eye on the trends in television in London and Paris. Both companies, part of the same group, working on the same objectives, we are a unique research and content partner.

Today, I am pleased to tell you that our partnership is going to be strengthen in the coming months with the launch of a new service to support our clients in content evaluations.

This new year is already off to a good start and our premium conference about the latest contents trends in television on January 18th ensured our partnership with TAPE Consultancy. This third edition met with great success, this is the reason why we decided to do the same conference in front of an American audience in Los Angeles.

In 2018, we are going to reinforce a large range of products:

  • My ETV full web, a new interface user friendly and easier to access to facilitate your audience analysis.
  • Our report 4Screen, track and analyze new habits wherever they are going to be measured.
  • The enrichment of NoTa with the integration of new programmes for children.
  • A new service drawn by TAPE to analyse audience potential of programmes before production

Driven by our partnerships with more than 250 flagships clients, these different initiatives will reinforce our unique position as the only TV & Video Market Intelligence company able to provide with services that cover more than 110 countries in the world.

Most successful scripted series in the online screens

Scripted series strongly benefit from the additional audience brought by online screens (computers, tablets and mobiles). 4-screen data available in the Netherlands and in France allowed the Scripted Series Report 2017 to identify the most successful TV series on these screens.


In the Netherlands, the most successful scripted series viewed online are all dramas, with less than 10 episodes, and broadcast on the public group channels NPO. If Flikken Maastricht and Als de Dijken Breken also feature among the most watched scripted series on TV screen. But, the NPO 3 drama Vlucht HS13, only stands out when looking at online ratings. Online screens bring an additional 8.7% viewers to the programme.

Channel: NPO1
Genre: Crime
Country of prod: Netherlands
Producer: Eyeworks
Number of episodes: 10
  Channel: NPO3
Genre: Drama
Country of prod: Netherlands
Producer: Column Film
Number of episodes: 8
  Channel: NPO1
Genre: Drama
Country of prod: Netherlands / Belgium
Producer: Evangelische Omroep
Number of episodes: 6


In France, the situation is quite different: the triumphant scripted series online are dramedies. However, as in the Netherlands, they are made up of fewer episodes. Season 7 of TF1’s hit dramedy Clem also ranks 5th in the scripted series top TV set ranking in France. On the contrary Fais pas ci, fais pas ça and Dix pour cent, both broadcast on the public channel France 2, achieved success mainly online. These two series share another common point: they are France 2’s two most young adults oriented scripted series.

Channel: TF1
Genre: Dramedy
Country of production: France
Producer: Merlin prod.
Number of episodes: 10
  Channel: France 2
Genre: Dramedy
Country of production: France
Producer: Elephant Story
Number of episodes: 6
  Channel: France 2
Genre: Dramedy
Country of production: France
Producer: Mother prod.
Number of episodes: 6

Looking at these case studies it is relevant to say that even if TV remains the main screen to watch scripted series, online ratings are key to understand global successes.

Which is the predominant genre consumption by country?

The young adult’s report was released in early November and contains a detailed country by country analysis of TV consumption of young adults, as well as a cross-country analysis. A study which highlights the TV viewing habits of 15-34 year olds within the audio-visual landscape of ten countries (Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and the USA).

Rather balanced TV consumption for young adults

To gain insights into young adults’ TV viewing habits, it is interesting to look at how young adults’ TV time is shared between the three genres (excluding sport) and if young adults’ consumption pattern is very different from the rest of the audience.

The chart below shows the aggregated results over ten countries studied on the six main channels among young adults, covering the 06:00-25:00 timeslot.

From this chart, it is clear that young adults have a rather balanced TV consumption. However, fiction is the most watched genre by young adults. This genre is highly attractive for young people as it includes many popular series subgenres. It is also noteworthy that the factual genre consumption is 1-point higher than entertainment. In Italy, the Netherlands and Japan, the factual genre is boosted by the significant success of docu-soaps. Young adults are fond of this new type of programme, blending factual and entertainment.

The report also reveals that entertainment is relatively overconsumed, as it only represents 25% of the hours of programming, but 32% of the young adults’ TV consumption. It underlines the fact that entertainment programmes are generally strong performers.

Furthermore, entertainment and fiction are consumed more by young adults than by total individuals.

The below map shows us a genre consumption by country.

Fiction: the predominance across five countries

It reveals immediately the predominance of fiction across five studied countries (Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Spain and the United States). Entertainment is most presented in France and the United Kingdom, the two countries which have also the largest volume of entertainment in the programming compared to the other countries (38% and 35% respectively). As this genre is usually successful with young adults. Finally, factual dominates in three countries (Italy, Japan and the Netherlands). As seen before, in those countries, there is a fine line between entertainment and factual which could explain such a fondness of these programmes.

More facts and figures of the young adults’ TV consumption can be found in the Young Adults report.
