Farmers’ dating show tops tv rankings

The dating show Boer Zoekt Vrouw (farmer seeks wife) has become the most watched non-sport tv programme ever, news agency ANP reports.

Now in its third season, the programme beat its own record this Sunday with nearly 3.8 million viewers.
Last year outside sport only the news bulletin Het Journaal attracted more than three million viewers and that was on just one occasion.
