This, shall we call it, routine starts with a panel of sport-commentators which may vary in the name of the show but basically it’s the always the same formula: one or 2 commentators to the right of the host, another one or 2 to his left and debate endlessly about the 3 major football clubs of the country: Benfica, Porto and Sporting.

This is followed by a program with a somewhat similar format about criminal topics. This program is called  ‘Rua Segura’.
