COMEDY CLASH BETWEEN HOLLAND AND BELGIUM CONTINUES
A second series for the Holland vs. Belgium version of ‘Comedy Clash’ has been commissioned by both VTM in Belgium and RTL4 in the Netherlands.
After highly rated battles between the two nations in several special episodes, the two channels decided to team up for a Holland vs. Belgium series. The program aired October 2018 on RTL4 in The Netherlands, increasing the channel’s market share by 41% compared to the average market share that month in the 25-54 target. It went on to air on VTM in Belgium in January 2019, scoring an average market share of 29.6% in the 18-44 age group, a major achievement considering that half of the episodes aired against big soccer matches.
‘Comedy Clash’ is the ultimate competition between cities, regions or even nations where teams battle each other to find out who knows the other best. And a battle it is, as the reputation of the cities, regions or nations are at stake.
The format was developed and produced by Pilot Studio, the creator behind ‘Telly Test,’ the highly successful studio panel show highlighting the best (inter)national clips from the previous week. ‘Telly Test’ has solidly proven its success over the combined 11 series that have already aired in Belgium (VTM) and the Netherlands (RTL4) .
