Ehrensenf ( anagram of "television") - an Internet television program on was extra hot , in which from 2005 to 2011 finds from the World Wide Web were humorously commented on in the style of news broadcasts. Every Monday through Friday, a new, roughly four and a half minute episode was posted on the website, which was seen by up to 30,000 viewers. The show Rocketboom , which originated in the USA in October 2004, served as a model for Ehrensenf .


The first broadcast was released on November 1, 2005. The format gained greater popularity, especially after online articles in the Swiss newspaper Blick and Spiegel Online . From May 2006 to September 2008 Ehrensenf was also featured on Spiegel Online . In order to present the product to a larger audience, the presenter Katrin Bauerfeind visited the television programs TV total (September 19, 2006) and Harald Schmidt (March 28, 2007).

The producers Carola Haase-Sayer and Rainer Bender had previously mainly developed program formats for the private television stations RTL and Sat.1 and worked as authors and editors.

The show, produced on working days in the studio in the Belgian Quarter in Cologne , was financed through advertising on the website and sponsors and, from November 2006, through occasional promotional videos.

In 2011 there was only one program a week, the last one ran on July 28, 2011. Since then, the format has apparently been on a longer “summer break”.


Ehrensenf was initially moderated mainly by Katrin Bauerfeind . She was represented by Sarah Liu , Beate, Cathrin Polzer, Saskia de Lando and Mark Freuer .

As a result of May 11, 2007, Bauerfeind announced its departure from the format and presented the program for the last time on June 19, 2007; on June 22, 2007, her own farewell contribution was published. Christine Henning and Mark Freuer will be her successors. After a joint moderation on July 2, 2007, they took turns on a weekly basis and occasionally moderated together. Almost a year later, Freuer announced his departure, and on June 2, 2008, he was succeeded by Jeannine Michaelsen . During Michaelsen's baby break in September 2009, Ellen Günyil , Sandra Huizinga and Sara-Ellen Picard gave a tour of the show. Günyil was accepted into the team of permanent moderators in October 2009 and left again in February 2010. In September Pia Ampaw represented Christine Henning in the moderation for a week and was accepted into the permanent team in October.

Honorary mustard on TV

Ehrensenf was also shown on television from March 9, 2009: the pay TV broadcaster e.clips broadcast the current issue every day after the tabloid news at 6:00 p.m. Every Sunday at 3:30 pm, e.clips showed the “mustard of the week”, in which highlights from a week of honorary mustard were summarized. e.clips ceased broadcasting on January 7, 2010. Ehrensenf subsequently found no new place on German television.
