The final of the Talent show reached all-time high viewing figures in Finland - 1,051,000 viewers followed the quality show.

"Talent's over million viewers crowned the programme's great success which has lasted the whole autumn, and we are really proud of it", says Director of Nelonen Media Kristiina Werner-Autio.

During the autumn the Talent show has gained great audiences of over 800,000 viewers time after time. This is an excellent result and also a proof that TV programmes can still reach vast amounts of people. Also viewing on the internet has been enormous during the whole season.

"The atmosphere before the live transmission was excited", tells Nelonen Media's Content Director Pirjo Airaksinen. "The whole production team shared the same ambition of gaining more than one million viewers. We had a feeling that it will happen in the Talent's final."

"This proves that only TV can create communities and phenomena like Talent. Warm thanks to Nelonen Media for exceeding the magic limit of one million viewers, the whole team has succeeded perfectly", says CEO of Sanoma Entertainment Anu Nissinen.
