After a Tuesday full of information programs (four proposals) and a Wednesday with Giuseppe Brindisi alone engaged on Rete 4, on Thursday 9 September there were two in-depth proposals in prime time: Paolo Del Debbio returned to Rete4, inaugurating the new season of ‘Dritto e Rovescio’ with Giorgia Meloni; while on La7 at ‘Atlantide’ Andrea Purgatori recalled 11 September, the Twin Towers and Osama Bin Laden.
The flagships did not compete on the same genre and with the same ambitions: Rai1 proposed the ‘Seat Music Award’ show event, packed with big names in song and entertainment, from Maria De Filippi to Claudio Baglioni passing through Pio and Amedeo; while Canale 5 focused on the film ‘Pelè’. The TV series of Rai2 and Italia1, the first TV with Emma Stone of Rai3, ‘La Favorita’, completed the basic grid. This is the ranking of the first evening.
The singing show with Conti and Incontrada easily prevails. Pele defends himself, Del Debbio goes strong, Italy 1 beats Rai2, good performance by Purgatori but arrives in the queue
