When the show aired in January, it gathered 463,000 viewers. At the time, the ratings was the third-best premiere in the celebrity version of “71 Degrees North.”

– It takes a week
Discovery’s director of communications, Hanne McBride, says the 2020 “71°N” season has received very high ratings, and that it takes a lot to top it off. She also says that the new viewing habits make the premiere numbers secondary, because there will be more viewers during the week.
– I wouldn’t be surprised if this week’s premiere total viewership is closer to last year than it seems so far, says McBride Dagbladet.
She’s also very pleased that “71 Degrees North” is still on screen — 21 years after its premiere. According to McBride, the show is one of the world’s longest-lived reality concepts
One of TVNorge’s biggest successes, Format 71 set new viewership records in late 2020, 21 years after it premiered on the same channel in 1999, says McBride.
Mediacom’s television director, Marianne Maceió, believes “71°N” will have higher viewership throughout the season.
“71°N” has been a successful concept of discovery for many years. I would say it still is. As always, it’s exciting to see if the program increases throughout the season, and how many are being aggregated digitally, Maceió told Dagbladet.
You think Discovery is happy with the viewership numbers so far.
– The proportion of those streaming this type of program is generally increasing. Just like with broadcasting in general. So perhaps Discovery is very happy with the overall numbers so far.
In early September, See and Hear . wrote There will be a new season of «71 degrees north».. A season a little different from what viewers already knew.
In Team 71 Degrees North, four celebrity couples will battle their way through challenging experiences in the Norwegian nature, by completing a continuous trail.
– We are already in the process of producing a program next spring, which will be an innovation in the “71°N” world. Teams compete against each other within the allotted time, and the two celebrities who withstand the most and cooperate best win, thus only reaching the last checkpoint, says McBride.
Celebrity couples on the season include host John Almas (54) and comedian Adam Schulberg (39), and influencers Vita (29) and Wanda (29) Machadi. Training influences Victoria Tolas (21), as she collaborates with YouTube profiler and podcaster Safari Shabani (24), and former skater Thomas Alsgaard (49) fights in teams with journalist and adventurer Elisa Røtterud (42).
This season, host John Almas returns to the realm of “71 Degrees North,” having escaped with a win two years ago on the celebrity version of the show.
However, Se og Hør told earlier this month that things didn’t go smoothly at the time, but this year he has a battle plan to reclaim his second win.
– I don’t have a lot of counting edges on the really private stuff, but I don’t want to make any hasty conclusions. The problem was the last time at “71 degrees N,” people wanted to start walking, and I also said, “Can’t we figure out where to go first?” He said the sin to see and hear about the previous participation.
