Second TV Award for “Good Night Austria”

A total of seven cabaret and comedy television programs were nominated for the Television of the Year Award (formerly the Audience Award), which was awarded for the seventh time this year, including six ORF formats. In an online vote, the public voted “Gute Nacht Österreich” as the most popular program for the second time. This makes it the seventh award for the ORF format, following two awards for “What’s New?” And “Science Busters” in addition to the “We Are Emperor” award.

ORF Program Director Stephanie Groys Horwitz: “Satire is one of the most powerful stylistic tools in general entertainment. Week after week, Peter Klein succeeds in humorously encouraging the audience to think with sarcasm, exaggeration and complete personal commitment. I congratulate him and the entire Gute Nacht Österreich team on their well-deserved award.”

Peter Klein: “The Audience Award is fun because you don’t have to go out to dinner with different jury members to get it (laughs). So I bow to all the wonderful people who voted for ‘Good Night Austria’ and gave us this success. At the end of the day, we are doing this show only for our audience – And they better like it! I also extend my sincere thanks to our politicians. Without them, satire would simply be impossible. That is why we are happy with their achievements every day – and they are certainly part of a minority in this country!
