Did You Know?
During the show's run, host Stefan Raab
developed several routines to start the show. At the beginning, he simply walked into the studio after being introduced by the announcer. Later, he added the phrase "Wir haben doch keine Zeit!" ("We have no time!"), which he called out while the audience was applauding to greet him. In later episodes, he would also slide down the railings of the stairs that lead into the studio. Some years later, in order to "silence" the audience, he made a scissor-like gesture with his arms, which then developed to just waving the palm of his hand, until it eventually evolved in just slightly twitching with his shoulder. It has also established that, moments before Raab entered the studio, an audience member would read aloud from a large cue card to announce the show's guests and events, followed by "And here's your host, Stefan Raab!".
