2 new Seasons for CITY DISTRICT (78 x 50′) !!! / Still very high ratings

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

VTM, the leading commercial TV channel in Belgium, announced today that it has commissioned two new seasons of the successful Belgian police series “CITY DISTRICT” (= “ZONE STAD” / 52 x 50′ or 78 x 50′ with the 2 new Seasons).Season 4 is now broadcast every Monday in prime-time on VTM, and ratings are still very good.

Last Monday for example, the police series seduced 871 647 viewers. The Market Share was also very high : 37,6 % Market Share on the target 18-54 years old… while the average Market Share of the channel (VTM) is 25,5% on this target in October.

All this while “CITY DISTRICT” is broadcast in front of “SURVIVOR” on Ka2 and American blockbusters (“Mission Impossible”,…) on VT4 !

These very good ratings convinced VTM to order directly two new Seasons.
