The new regulations to contain the corona pandemic prohibit “body-hugging services”, as Chancellor Sebastian Kurz announced on Saturday: fitness and dance studios as well as hairdressers and tattooists must close. The ORF is nevertheless confident that the season of “Dancing Stars”, which was interrupted in the spring due to the lockdown, can be completed.
“Based on the future regulation, we will review all security concepts again to ensure that all TV productions can be continued,” said KURIER from the company. “The example of the ‘Dancing Stars’ has shown that with a particularly consistent security concept it is possible to carry out a television production of this size over a number of weeks without incidents. We are confident that we will also be able to show the audience the semifinals and the finals.”
As reported, the show last Friday, when presenter Norbert Oberhauser had to leave the show, had an average of 848,000 viewers. The semifinals are on November 20th, the finals on November 27th. planned.
