The exclusive interview with tennis star Boris Becker, who has been released from prison, did not pay off particularly well for Sat.1 in terms of quota. The more than two-hour "Sat.1 Spezial. Boris Becker" with moderator Steven Gätjen wanted to see an average of just 1.55 million people (5.8 percent) on Tuesday evening. That is around 200,000 to 300,000 more viewers than the private broadcaster usually gets with the crime series "Navy CIS" in the same slot.

The strongest TV show of the evening was the ZDF flea show "Bares für Rares" with Horst Lichter", which attracted 4.29 million (15.2 percent). A double episode of the doctor's series "In allerFreundschaft" came to 3.99 in the first million (14.2 percent) and 3.97 million (14.1 percent) RTL broadcast the historical drama series "The House of Dreams" – 1.46 million (5.2 percent) wanted to see it.

On RTLzwei, the animated film "Shrek 2 - The daring hero returns" had 610,000 viewers (2.2 percent).
