Jensen! is a Dutch late night talk show on the television station RTL 5. It airs on weekdays from 22:30 to 23:30 CET during winter, 20:30 to 21:30 UTC during summer.

The show's creator, anchorman Robert Jensen, also acted as its producer and host. In addition to various Dutch celebrities who accounted for the majority of the show's guests, Jensen often welcomed international celebrities who were interviewed in English with subtitles in Dutch.[1]

On March 29, 2007, Jensen! became a subject of controversy in the United States as the show's guest that day, Snoop Dogg, delivered a few uncensored profanities directed at American TV host Bill O'Reilly.[2] During the course of the interview, the topic of O'Reilly taking Snoop Dogg to task over the rapper's drug and gun possession arrest weeks before, was brought up by Jensen. Snoop Dogg responded by saying "fuck Bill O'Reilly" and "suck my dick" among other things, all of which aired uncensored on Dutch TV. Snoop Dogg continued to lash out at O'Reilly while expressing frustration about O'Reilly not inviting him on his show to talk about the arrest, so that he could understand Snoop.[3] The footage gained global notoriety after it was uploaded on YouTube, where it reached more than 1,000,000 views. Bill O'Reilly responded on his show, mocking Snoop Dogg for bashing him and the Netherlands for letting Snoop Dogg in the country, something which increased not only Snoop Dogg's popularity in The Netherlands, but also Robert Jensen's popularity[]. On 26 November 2009 Snoop Dogg returned in JENSEN! to talk about Bill O'Reilly again.
