Tina has made 94 shows with Swedish Television. The shows had extraordinary ratings. Very soon she was on prime time and every Monday 1.2 million people in Sweden tuned in to watch the show. The number is extraordinary considering Sweden’s population of 9 million people.
The show also went quickly to Finish, Norwegian and Danish TV-stations. She has enjoyed similar success as in Sweden in the rest of the Nordic countries.
