Jamie Le Mans strikes a spectator at ailing Linda de Mol

Jamai Loman

Jamai Loman puts together great viewing characters with the first episode of RTL 4’s new secret duo. With over a million viewers, it scored at least double Linda de Mol’s points.

What if Linda de Mol wasn’t having a hard enough time with it last fall series From disappointing viewership numbers, I’m also now impressed by somewhat new TV talent Jamai Loman. Yesterday, the penultimate day of the year, attracted more viewers than the queen of television.

Jamai beats Linda

Jamai’s new show Secret Duets started with 1 million viewers (18% of market share) on RTL 4. This made it the most-watched variant of the amazing De Slimste Mens character, which this time served 1.9 million (32%) viewers.

Meanwhile, Linda de Mol watched the premiere of her movie in April, May and June on SBS 6, but that’s not exactly the crowd-plug. It was watched by 516 thousand people (10%), which is just not enough to get a bronze medal in prime time. NPO 1 got 557 thousand viewers (10%) for the documentary about the Eurovision final.


It is becoming more and more noticeable that Linda has lost her huge audience from the past. The time when everything I touched turned to gold and when I drove Paul de Leeuw hitting Mooi Weer De Leeuw out of the tube, it definitely ended. Can Linda turn the tide?

Linda can actually get revenge the day after tomorrow, because then the new crime series Deep Grounds will be shown for the first time. She then faces her TV competitor, Chantal Janzen, who presents Beat the Champions VIPS. Will Linda finally score again or will this be further evidence of her career waning?
