Whether to brag or just for fun: More than 550,000 Austrians are eager to see Armin Asinger and the “Millionaire Show” once again. Martin Gastinger’s statement is even more disturbing. In an interview with “Kurier”, the new ORF entertainment director said he would like to “try something” with the popular TV format.
“We’ll celebrate the anniversary next year with “25 Years of a Million Show.” Just a few less issues because I’d like to try something,” he said literally when asked if the million-dollar show would continue. .
However, the future of quiz shows was determined by Günther Joch and the German “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” Also depends on. away. “We produce in the same studio. What would ORF do if Endemol or RTL decided to abandon it?” Gastinger said. That’s why it is beneficial for ORF to “try other show ideas”.
However, the ORF entertainment director has made it clear that the public broadcaster is currently trying to extend the “million-dollar show” for two years. The signs are probably quite good: Günther Joch has extended his contract, so nothing stands in the way of ORF, Gastinger is convinced. Finally, he clarifies: “The fact that we wanted to end the “Million Dollar Show” would be ill-informed and absurd.”
