‘Mentalist’ hypnotizes Gaul

Highest-rating series in France

He might not have caught Red John, but “The Mentalist’s” Patrick Jane certainly hypnotized France.

Some 38 episodes, which broadcaster TF1 airs on Wednesdays in primetime, appeared in Gaul’s top 100 list of most-watched TV shows for 2010.

Produced by Bruno Heller for Warner Bros. TV, “Mentalist” ranked as France’s top TV series in a year with few TV ratings hits.

As in recent years, U.S. imports held sway. “House” registered 11 top 100 rankings, “CSI” six, “Criminal Minds” five and “CSI: Miami” three.

Only six French series made the cut, led by three episodes of TF1’s Monday primetime comedy “Une famille formidable,” which first aired 1992 and wrapped its eighth season last year.
