“The world upside down”: Stéphan Bureau’s new show will be launched on September 16

“The Upside Down World” phan Office will be launched on September 16

DAY

After changing its name and time slot, Stéphan Bureau's new public affairs program on TVA, Le monde à l'envers , will finally go on the air on September 16, at 8 p.m., learned Le Journal.

This 90 minutes with an exploded concept will therefore be broadcast every Friday evening, live from TVA's studio A.

It was initially discussed that the host's return to TVA would materialize in the spring, that the show is called Sit down and go fight Everybody's talking about it on Sunday night.

After filming a few pilots, however, the show's artisans decided that it would be better to delay its birth until the fall to refine the concept.

As for the decision to house The world turned upside down on Friday, we will have to wait to be able to speak to the principals concerned to find out more.

All points of view

In a press release issued this morning, the channel promises “live reactions on breaking news topics, interactions with the public in the studio and at home and surprises”.

In an interview in the Journal, last March, Stéphan Bureau had insisted on the fact that he wanted a variety of opinions.

“I hope, he had declared, that this will be a plural place where we will be able to find, in the seats of the guests, all kinds of points of view, including, perhaps sometimes, points of view which are less frequent on the air. All with a view to hearing people we no longer hear, or not, and questions we don't ask. We want to offer complementarity to the news offer at the moment in Quebec.”

Before returning to TVA, the 58-year-old host had held the helm of the show Bien heard, on the airwaves of Ici Première, for five summers. He decided to end his contract in the spring of 2021, a few months before receiving a reprimand from the Radio-Canada ombudsman following an interview with the controversial French microbiologist Didier Raoult.
