The new 2006–07 season was started not in September, in the usual way, but in July, wishing to attract the attention of the 30+ audience, which continues watching TV in their summer cottages. In order to expand its reality show concept, a number of new programs, attributed by the channel's management to this type of shows, were introduced into the broadcast grid. Those were “The Candidate” with Vladimir Potanin, “Nanny to the rescue”, “Club of former wives”, “Wife exchange”, "A different life». According to the former general director of the channel Roman Petrenko, by that time TNT specialists “had studied almost the entire experience of the TV companies of all around the world and picked up the ideas seeming to have a greater potential, as well and even hired some British producers: At the same time, the channel managers began to publicly announce their dissatisfaction with the “boring” project “Dom-2”, and came up with the idea to give it up for one or two seasons, despite its record ratings. However, none of the new programs was able to reach the popularity of “Dom-2”, and in 2017 the project still remains on air, having become the longest-lasting reality show on the Russian television according to the version of the “Book of Records of Russia”. In March 2006, a comedy series named “Happy Together” was aired, which was an adaptation of the American sitcom “Married... with Children”. Lasting for 7 years, the series became the most “long-lasting” one as well as one of the most successful sitcoms on TNT. On November 4, 2006 the project “Nasha Russia” was launched (which actually turned out to be a copy of the popular English sketch series “Little Britain”). It is a humorous TV-show shot by “Comedy Club Production” with Mikhail Galustyan and Sergei Svetlakov in the leading roles. The show was very popular, some jokes of its characters became extremely popular among the people, and the characters themselves turned into symbols (for example, Ravshan and Dzhamshut - foreign workers having come to Russia). There appeared 5 seasons, in 2016 (5 years after the completion of the original series) it was followed by a spin-off called “The Bearded Guy. Understand and forgive”, developing one of the storylines of “Nasha Russia”, starring Mikhail Galustyan in the role of an unlucky Ryazan guard Sashka Borodach. This character also actually became notorious among the people, having become a symbol of a negligent worker. Also in November, the TNT style itself was updated: the channel started promoting the people, directly or indirectly connected with it (i.e. the hosts, the actors from TV series, the members of the reality show “Dom-2” and the professionals of the “Comedy Club”. Social movie clips, show and advertisement openings with slogans: "TNT about life. TNT about love. TNT for fun “were launched simultaneously within a monthly advertising campaign throughout Russia. The autumn advertising campaign was then followed by a spring one, becoming more extensive, held under the slogan “Feel our love”. According to its inspirer, Alexander Dulerain, “in the entire new advertising history, we wanted to overturn all the concepts familiar to the viewer, to shock him.” In a series of short promo-commercials, advertising the “stars” of the TNT (Ksenia Sobchak, Olga Buzova, Alyona Vodonaeva, Garik Kharlamov, Timur Rodriguez, Pavel Volya and Mikhail Galustyan) – the multiple meanings of some phrases were played with, while trying to keep a delicate balance between glamorous romance and provocative humor. 2007 was the year of birth of a new TV format - competitions of humorists and whole stand-up teams. In April, there started a show named “Laughter without rules”, organized by the “Comedy Club”. Young humorists competed for large money prizes, and then the winner competed in the following show - “A Crazy League.” The show “Laughter without rules” lasted for 10 seasons, the last program was released in December 2009 in the recording, after the death of one of its hosts – Vladimir Turchinsky. In August 2010, the show was restored under the title “Comedy Battle” and is dedicated to the memory of Turchinsky. The show continued until the end of 2016, and the following year it was replaced by the program “The Open Microphone”. In 2007, for the first time the TNT got the title of the “Best TV Channel of the Year” according to the version of “Russian Entertainment Awards” (an annual national award in the field of entertainment industry).
