The KVN program was first transmitted on November 8, 1961 by the First Soviet Channel. The show, 11 years later, when few programs were broadcast live, Soviet censors considered offensive and anti-Soviet jokes by the students and banned KVN. During the Perestroika period in 1986 the show was resurrected 14 years later, with Alexander Maslyakov as its host.
TV broadcasts of KVN games have achieved the highest ratings in Russia for more than 20 years. The game’s popularity is so strong that even politicians use it as an incentive to win extra points. Games played before the election were attended by Boris Yeltsin, Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev. KVN became part of the culture, demonstrated by the fact that in the Russian-speaking communities it became a game of choice.
