The Hit List: This Week’s Hottest Entertainment in Israel (Week 9, 2012)

Mar 05 2012

It doesn’t happen a lot that we find two people from the same family in the top 5 of the Radio Airplay Chart, let alone taking the top two slots, but this is what’s happening this week with Shlomi Shabat’s take over number 1 with his latest song ‘Yesh Lach,’ followed by a new entry in at #2 for his son, Avihu, with his new song ‘Achshav At Yodaat.’ Eyal Golan is following with a new song at #3, and with Shlomo Artzi and Aviv Geffen closing the top 5 this week- there’s no female voice in the chart this week.

In movies, it’s romantic comedies week this week in Israel, with Resse Witherspoon’s “This Means War” topping the blockbuster’s chart, followed by Jennifer Aniston’s ‘Wonderlust.’ Five time Academy Award Winner ‘Hugo’ opened only this week in Israel, and grossed a little bit more than $90K which places it in the chart at #3.

This week we also get to look at the top 5 most popular TV series this month in the Holy Land, and it’s a total surprise to see the new ABC drama ‘Revenge’ starring Emily Van Camp (picture above with the new Jewish eye- candy Josh Bowman) in the top spot, followed by NBC’s great new comedy ‘Up All Night’ with Christina Applegate and Maya Rudolf.
