The show ran for about 190 minutes with no publicity breaks. Ruquier started by a monologue that lasted for about 20 minutes; he presented the past week's news with humour. He also presented some of the week's best cartoons before turning to his columnists for comments. The five guests (mainly actors, singers, writers) then talked about their projects and interacted with the columnists. A personality (often a politician, philosopher, union leader) was then interviewed by Ruquier and his columnists for about an hour.
