Yakker is first for Col TriStar

Columbia TriStar’s first-ever Euro-produced talkshow, “Ricky! Harris,” premiered Monday in Germany to top ratings.

The gabber is the first in a series planned by the international TV division of the Hollywood major for local production throughout Europe.

The show obtained a 20 share on its launch date on commercial station Sat 1, beating competition from top-rated rival RTL (16 share) in the daily 2 p.m. time slot.

The new show is a relationship-oriented talker and was developed by Dick Coveny and Bob Kuretsky, who manage CTIT’s two-year-old Talk TV Intl. unit.

“This represents another landmark in CTIT’s commitment to local production in Europe and specifically our development deal of local talkshow production,” Steve Kent, CTIT senior VP international production, said.
