Cronica Cârcotaşilor (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈkronika kɨrkoˈtaʃilor],"The Naggers' Show" or "The Naggers' Chronicles") is a weekly satire show on Prima TV hosted by Șerban Huidu, Codruț Kegheș, Cristian Hrubaru and Ioana Petric.
Loosely based on the Italian entertainment program Striscia la notizia, Cronica Cârcotaşilor ridicules various celebrities from the current Romanian political, media and showbiz scene by exposing their stupidity, hypocrisy or poor grammar skills, as seen on TV.
The main features of the show are:
- the latest bloopers of the news presenters, politicians or other celebrities
- the last week's top 3 TV bloopers or ridiculous sequences from different TV shows (Top Ruşinică, approximate English translation: "Shamy-Shame Top 3" or "Hall of Shamy-Shame")
- an ironic peek behind the curtains of the fashion and showbiz scene, featuring the snobbish and labile character Cătălin Dezbrăcatu' (Cătălin the Naked, played by the actor Codruţ Chegeş), an obvious satire on the Romanian fashion designer Cătălin Botezatu.
- intermissions by attractive professional dancers nicknamed bebeluşe (Romanian for "little baby girls"); in contrast to the Striscia la notizia's veline, Cronica Cârcotaşilor features (since 2008) four dancers: Delia Florea, Oana Ionita, Ioana Petric and Cristina Zegan.
