Viewing figures soar in Greece

by Stella Floras 50 views

The Eurovision Song Contest is extremely popular in Greece. That was proven once more by the viewing figures for this year's final which were very high again. The Greek public is generally very satisfied with Sarbel and his performance and the general consensus is that the young artist did his best and managed to keep the country in next year's final once more.

This year's viewing figures were slightly lower than the previous, which is natural considering the fact that Greece was hosting the event in 2006. An average of 2.822.000 of viewers per minute, with the figures peaking during Sarbel's performance, with 3.372.000 viewers watching, gave NET an average share of 74,4% during the final. According to AGB, the largest percentage of viewers were women aged 25-44, with a stunning 41,2% of the particular group watching Yassou Maria!

Last night Sarbel gave a big party to celebrate his success. The party was attended by hundreds of people who rushed to congratulate him and wish him good luck in his career.

Sarbel's future looks particularly bright as the Greek public is happy with his performance and the fact that he managed to maintain the country's excellent Eurovision Song Contest record of Greece being constantly in the final lately.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
