Matchmaking is the new trend on TV. It has been almost six mounts when the first marriage oriented show “Dest-i İzdivaç” has been started. Now there are three shows in two channels.
The concept of this shows are based on traditional motives, because of the target audience and their expectations. The audience on the studio acts like a jury and some kind of weird dialogues are quite shocking.

If they agree on getting married, proposals and wedding are also subject of another show that is quite like a celebration.
