Very little Deutsche-sprachen this Saturday, the Pokal football is on ARD, and will swallow up live viewers. Pro7 has Unglaublich!, a biography of Stephen Mulhern (sub: please check). On Friday, Sat.1 brings back top singalong show All Together Now.

Saturday night is the final of The Voice la plus belle voix on TF1. Though Tout le monde veut prendre sa place remains, France 2's usual suite of daytime shows are off air this week, there's tennis from Roland Garros. F3's afternoon block is unaffected - Des chiffres et des lettres, Slam, and Questions pour un champion still air from 4.

Two new kennisquizzes on Nederlands telly this Saturday. The Connection (NPO1) tries to link all of the answers throughout the show - Matthijs van Nieuwkirk hosts, three celebrities and the viewers at home try to find what links a muddy Jeep, a fallen spy satellite, a milk bottle, and half a brick. De 1% Quiz (RTL) is their take on The 1% Club; Tijl Beckand's version sprawls itself over two hours, for a prize of €50 000 (€50 000).
