Hola mamá, soy yo
September 1997 saw the first broadcasts of a new entertainment show called ‘Hola mamá, soy yo’ on the autonomous channel Telemadrid. For three seasons Carlos Lozano was the presenter of this weekly quiz that featured jokes and funny images.
Home videos, hidden cameras and music spots with the best sports and animal images were part of the programme’s contents which also had a children’s and adult’s joke quiz. In both cases the idea was to try and tell as many jokes as possiblae and the audience decided which ones were the best by means of remote controls that were operated from their seats.
The audience could also win a prize by taking part in the “Batalla del humor”, telling jokes spontaneously throughout the programme. All in all, it was a warm, entertaining and very funny programme, designed to please a family audience. The format’s success was reflected in the audience figures in that during its one and a half year’s broadcasting, the GECA (Audio-visual Communication Studies Office) awarded it a prize for being the most viewed programme on the channel.
