The talk show HLF8 on SBS6 will disappear from television. Due to “undesirable results”, the curtain falls at the beginning of April after four seasons.
“With a motivated team, we have put an incredible amount of work and energy into making HLF8 a success on the eve of SBS6,” says Marco Louwerens, TV director at Talpa.
“Despite adjustments to the format, the desired and necessary progress has not been made and we have to conclude that the program has not managed to attract enough viewers. HLF8 was an important value in our (live) programming and has provided beautiful and high-profile moments on several occasions. I am extremely grateful to the editors, presentation and welcome, returning guests for that.”
HLF8 was first seen on television in the summer of 2021. Initially, the program was only presented by Johnny de Mol and Hélène Hendriks was the permanent substitute.
De Mol resigned from his duties at the talk show in April last year due to allegations of misconduct. Hendriks and Leonie ter Braak then took over the presentation. Since the beginning of this year, Sam Hagens has been the main presenter. De Mol also returned for one evening a week.
SBS6 will broadcast a modified evening from April 10. Long Live Love and A Year Of Your Life are given more space and fill the gap in the programming.
