In simple words, Happiness - The good news season was particularly successful on the target that was more attractive to sponsors and therefore more profitable for Rai in terms of advertising revenues.
Satisfactory results, therefore, for Felicità - The season of good news. Which, in the intentions of the author, wanted to bring a wave of lightness to the schedule dominated by virologists and epidemiologists and war bulletins.
