Le grand journal (also known as Le grand journal de Canal+) is a French nightly news and talk show airing every weekday evening from 19:10 to 20:20 on Canal+. It debuted on August 30, 2004 and was created and hosted by Michel Denisot. Then hosted by Antoine de Caunes. Then hosted by Maïtena Biraben. Since 2016, it is hosted by Victor Robert. Originally a one-hour program, it expanded to two hours in 2005. Even though the show is broadcast on the premium channel Canal+, this is a non-encrypted program. Created in 2004 by producer-director Renaud Le Van Kim, the show was originally composed of one block broadcast from 19:05 to 19:55, usually live except on Fridays. The show benefitted from audiences from all of Canal+'s free time slots watching, in addition to the extension of Digital terrestrial television, which allowed new households access to the channel.
