It seems that the real Oranjekoorts is quite absent from the television viewer. The viewing figures of the World Cup in Qatar are high, but much lower than previous editions. “It’s historically bad.”

    The current Football World Cup in Qatar is not nearly as popular with the viewer as previous tournaments. After the opening match of the Orange against Senegal, watched by 4.3 million people, almost 4.4 million people (78 percent market share) were ready for the match against Ecuador yesterday, which ended in a 1-1 tie.

    ‘Not going well’

    It doesn’t help that both games started at five o’clock in the afternoon, but according to viewing figures expert Tina Nijkamp, ​​the viewing figures are still quite disappointing. “Oh dear. That is not going well at all with the viewing figures of the Dutch national team. Historically bad even,” said the former boss of SBS 6.

    She continues: “For the second time in a row under five million viewers. And that didn’t even happen in 2010 when the games took place at 1:30 p.m. Then only once under five million, namely the first game against Denmark.”

    Historically bad

    Tina speaks of historically bad scores. “All other tournaments this century, including tournaments before in 2004, 2006 and 2008 and after in 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2021, always above five million. So it really seems that the Orange fever is really less this tournament.”

    She continues: “Who knows on Tuesday against Qatar it will be above 5 million, because then it will really be a matter of whether the Netherlands will continue or not.”

    Masked Singer at #1

    The big winner on prime time was The Masked Singer with 1.9 million viewers (34 percent) on RTL 4, followed by England – United States with 1.5 million viewers (27 percent) on NPO 1.

    The other most viewed titles were NPO 2’s Twee voor Twaalf (1.3 million), NPO 2’s De Geknipte Gast (818 thousand) and SBS 6’s De Oranjewinter (768 thousand).
