And they want ‘Wetten, dass..?’ “So let’s do it.”

He likes to do it once a year as an event show, Gottschalk continues. He is pleased with ZDF’s decision. The public’s approval certainly helped it come back. “I wasn’t quite sure if the old magic still worked or not,” Gottschalk says of his skepticism. But she succeeded. Gottschalk addressed the following message to “the few critics who grumbled that it was yesterday’s TV”: “It was intentional – and I can’t and don’t want to pretend I’m the man of tomorrow.”
