Egyptian TV channels are divided into two: those preoccupied with arguments about jinn, swindling and sex, and those fiercely critical of such topics. In her show on al-Nahar satellite TV channel, Riham Said occasionally discusses issues such as jinn, magicians and swindling. The last episode featured five sisters “possessed by jinn” for five months. The episode earned high rating, hitting over one million views on YouTube only 24 hours after its release and reaching nearly six million views two weeks later. This led Riham to proclaim that she is “number one in Egypt.”
