Nikolai Tsiskaridze’s debut: the artist successfully replaced Maxim Galkin – there are a lot of personal stories on the air and no scandal

Nikolai Tsiskaridze’s debut can be seen on May 7 at 9:35 p.m. on the Tonight program.

On May 7, late at night, after the Vremya show, the first episode of the Tonight TV show aired with a new host. The broadcast is Moscow time at 21:35, but in regions with other time zones, the program was released. We are discussing the debut of the people’s artist in a new role.

Recall that the entertainment TV show “Tonight” airs on Saturdays on Channel One. The first presenter of the project is Andrey Malakhov, he was replaced by Maxim Galkin and Yulia Menshova. The last time the program was hosted by a certain Maxim Galkin: in the studio with the stars he discussed various topics. After the flight of Maxim Galkin and his family to permanent residence in Israel, the position of host of Tonight became vacant. In the festive program dedicated to Victory Day, Maxim Galkin was replaced by the People’s Artist Nikolai Tsiskaridze.

The new presenter begins the program with the words: “Good evening! Welcome to Nikolai Tsiskaridze. Today, on the eve of the great Victory Day holiday, we are here, in this wonderful studio, we will remember the great songs. The theme of the program is the songs of the war years, the songs of Victory, compositions that were first heard in films about the war. Nikolai Maksimovich (as Maxim Alexandrovich months earlier) says eyeliner as he stands, after entering the studio. And only then he sits at the table with the star guests. The decor hasn’t changed either. The guests are famous artists Natalya Varley, Larisa Luzhina, Nikolai Rastorguev, Boris Galkin, Anastasia Makeeva, Rodion Gazmanov and others.

I would like to note that Nikolai Tsiskaridze very successfully added personal stories to the dialogues with the characters, stories about songs. Stories are informative, emotional, relevant.

Here are some examples. Honored artist Natalya Varley remembered her father, who did not like to talk about the war, and only after her death did her comrade tell some stories. Tsiskaridze added: “I run the Academy of Russian Ballet in St. Petersburg, where there are many people who survived the blockade. And they do not like to talk and remember…” Nikolai Maksimovich said that during the lockdown, the ballet school did not stop working for a single day: people found the strength not only to live, but also to practice art in the belief that this horror would end. Tsiskaridze initiated and made several collections on this subject: he himself interviewed himself on the subject of the blockade.

The program will show many excerpts from favorite popular movies about the war, the songs will be performed in the studio. Natalya Varley will perform the song “We need a win…”

Host Nikolai Tsiskaridze says: “I always listen to these songs with great pleasure. And every time I catch myself thinking that tears come to my eyes, that I inadvertently remember my grandmother, all my grandparents; mother, who constantly talked about the siege of Moscow; my nanny, who knew the beginning of the war in kyiv, and then survived the entire evacuation. Constantly listening to these songs, I understand what pain, what desperate pride we must all experience…”

A photo of little Kolya with his mother Lamara Nikolaevna was shown during his story about a trip to Sevastopol. Here is this family story: “When I was little, my mother was looking for an uncle who died during the defense of Sevastopol for a long time. In the 70s we went to Sevastopol, they told him that he was buried there. He was in preschool age, but the Sapun Mountain memorial made an incredible impression on me. We walked and every minute the announcer’s voice repeated: “Mountain Sapun, Mountain Sapun, you swallowed millions.” I remember now. The entire memorial is names, names, thousands of names of people who were killed in Sevastopol. Mom started telling me all this. How many years have passed, and I remember it as now. I think that every person in whose family there is such a story … “

The program ended with the song “Victory Day” by David Tukhmanov – in the studio it was performed by the Alexandrov Song-Dance Ensemble. A penetrating and emotional program was released: all the artists performed the songs very well. Presenting the Tsiskaridze program was not at all like a debut: it seems that he has been sitting in this studio for a year. The People’s Artist was organic, did not use parasitic words at all, demonstrated erudition, rich life experience. On the network, fans rejoice – there are no scandals, intrigues and investigations. However, this time the topic was not conducive to such stories. However, if Nikolai Tsiskaridze remains a permanent host, then the theme of “Tonight” may become a bit “cultivated”.

In general, Tsiskaridze has enough to do: the world-famous ballet dancer works as the rector of the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet. Nikolai Maksimovich came to Moscow from St. Petersburg to shoot. But you don’t need to do this often for a weekly stream – in a couple of days you can record shows a couple of months in advance.

As for the former driver Maxim Galkin, they did not remember him on the air. However, Tsiskaridze and Galkin are known to have maintained good relations. For example, a couple of years ago, Nikolai Maksimovich publicly congratulated Maxim Galkin on his birthday in this way: “We always talked, but I could never imagine that when all the persecution of me began in 2013, Maxim is one of the few who did not be afraid to say what you think. I thanked him many times for that.” It is unknown if Tsiskaridze and Galkin are in communication now.
