Recently Patty Brard wrote in her column published in Weekend Magazine that SBS 6 lost its convivial image. When the TV personality was invited to Het Leukste Weekend (an event sponsored by the TV channel) (see news posted on October 3. 2012), she felt nostalgia for the happy times she spent on SBS between 2007 and 2011 as she hosted "Shownieuws". Last year, Sanoma and Talpa took over SBS Nederland. Soon afterwards, Patty's deal with the TV network wasn't extended. According to the diva, the viewers want uncomplicated programs instead of "hip presenters in a huge set looking like a Pinball from Las Vegas". La Brard added: "SBS 6 was the channel which made people feel like stars and stars like ordinary people".
