TV: There are 9 shows that can be watched with the family

Watching TV is an activity that is now done individually. When TV was live, long before viewing platforms came along, big family get-togethers were held in front of the small screen. The pandemic brought back this habit, whereby we had to stay home together. Today, listening to parents and children is slowly returning to young people at an early age. Watching a show with the family, is it an old habit or is it making a comeback?

Listening as a family has gone viral not just in Quebec, but all over the world. Traditional television everywhere is struggling to mobilize the youth who have abandoned it to make profits from the various platforms. According to a survey, the Global Family Study, conducted by Kids Industries in London among families from ten countries, last January, 73% of respondents said that half of the content watched by children under the age of 13 was with the family.

What are consumers looking for? Positive role models, opportunities for fun, problem-solving, testimonials, and imaginative content. We also reveal that viewing is common to linear TV and dash platforms. We note that the latter is often preferred by ‘joint viewing’ because it makes it possible to bring people together at the required time for the required duration. Given the multiplication of possibilities, the public has a great deal of freedom. For young people over the age of 13, solo listening is primarily done on social media.


However, television accompanies many homes during dinner time, which explains in particular, without detracting from the quality of the programmes, the high demand for 7:00 pm every day. To reach young and old, creators rely on content that, through their characters or speakers, through unifying themes, places of reference and humorous proposals, manage to unite more than one generation at the same time.

Obligation by voting is also a unifying factor, explaining the popularity of “tele-hook” for two decades. Originality, the pursuit of knowledge, laughter and entertainment are the values ​​that lie at the heart of projects that seem to stand out on a global scale. Quebec is no exception.

A rather tasty program, hosted by Pierre Hébert, that is watched as a family. Because children are the protagonists, because they are accompanied by their parents, because laughter is present, there is a certain idea of ​​suspense and because we can recognize ourselves in it, it is a family meeting par excellence.

This popular game relies not only on general knowledge questions (you will notice that there are no more than 10 per show), but above all on the interaction between the participants. No need to be a connoisseur, we play spotting the divergent look, the laughter, and the irreverent interpretation. Since the pandemic, humorous concepts of impersonations, puppets, or songs have been added to enhance the entertainment.

Making science accessible and standardizing it was a major challenge. Stéphane Bellavance and Martin Carli liven up this family meeting, which opens the door to many discussions. The content is educational, the container fun and the tone is ageless. By having entertainers and adults as competitors, young people need not be embarrassed about not knowing quite the opposite, they have just as much, if not more, a chance of getting to the right answer.

Music competitions are enjoying great success among generations all over the world. The competitors’ diversity of age and repertoire, the accessibility of “ordinary” people who outdo themselves, and the talent to generate emotion, surprise, and attachment to their stories allow audiences to project themselves into it. We take a positive approach in spite of the competition, because it leads to a dream come true. The diverse origin of the participants also creates commitment. We feel it while voting.

If infotainment can get young people interested in politics, that’s a good thing. Jean-René Dufort with his youthful side and sense of humor managed to find a suitable unifying tone. He cleverly finds the flaw in every situation, highlights the absurdities, but knows how to highlight, in his own way, the good moves. It was never out of bad faith, as he pointed out, which generally goes under the radar, but can, in some ways, have an impact on our society. Informs without taking the initiative.

Reality TV attracts many young people. It generates commitment. It establishes credibility as it immerses participants in uncomfortable situations. This is the case here. Whatever the participants’ notoriety, it is the vulnerability in the face of adversity, the thrill and satisfaction of getting through that appeal. It is also resilience in the face of failure. The weird context doesn’t hurt either.

The new group brings people from Generations Z, Y, and X and Boomers together in the studio. In the results, the ranking is led by Damien Robitaille in a humorous nod to François Perrault and Martin Fontaine accompanied by a young (at the time of this writing) female cramp dancer. Humor, shared references, thoughtful intergenerational values. And let’s remember where the audience voted at home.

Comedy scores points with young adults. despite of happiness Sometimes hitting hard, sarcasm, sarcasm and satire prove to be unifying when it comes to critiquing our society.

The unifying quality of this series lies in its realism. As was the case with the popular show parents, we can easily identify ourselves in the members of the Gagnon-Despaties, and the situations we are in. Self-irony is also the key to his success with young and old alike.
