“Maybrit Illner” was the most successful German political talk last year. Today the first issue of this year about vaccinations and the lockdown is running on ZDF.
Again this year, the corona virus dominates the media landscape, but above all the talk shows. The ZDF political talk “Maybrit Illner” starts this Thursday, January 14th, with the topic “Slow vaccination, fast virus – is the long winter shutdown threatened?” Into the new year.
In the past year, the program Polittalk on German television was with the most programs and the best market share – after a three-week winter break, the new year is still going strong. With an average of 14.3 percent market share in a total of 41 editions, the show hosted by Maybrit Illner not only ended 2020 with the highest annual value in the past 21 years – it was also the record among political talks on German television.
The first guests of the new year are Saxony’s Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer from the CDU, the SPD health politician Karl Lauterbach and the general practitioner Eva Hummers, member of the permanent vaccination commission. Claudia Kade, head of politics at the daily newspaper “Die Welt”, and the doctor and science journalist Eckart von Hirschhausen are also there. The topic: The vaccination start and the virus spread.
Due to the current pandemic development, only three guests will discuss in the Berlin ZDF studio in the future – this time it will be Karl Lauterbach, Claudia Kade and Eckart von Hirschhausen. Michael Kretschmer and Eva Hummers are to be added. In a one-on-one conversation, Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn will also have a say in the program via short circuit.
