Hi, first of all a very happy new year to all iDubba readers. We had a a great time last year and we hope that this year we’ll be able to take iDubba to new heights. So how to start this new year’s first post? Well since you know that throughout last year “Reality” tag was amongst the favorites, so we’ll start with same this year too :).. (i beg your pardon, but I know you love it too)!!
Last year Indian TV broadcasting saw a major overhaul, with Colors overcoming Star Plus’s supremacy and reality shows taking over saas-bahu sagas. The year started with Colors launching “Khatron Ke Khiladi” and then came several trend revolutionizing shows like- “Rakhi Ka Swayamvar”, “Sachh Ka Saamna” and not to forget “Raaz Pichle Janam ka”. These shows revolutionized the trend (to some extent though) of show picking during prime time slots. Some say the programs were exciting, some say they were too extreme, but at the end everyone watched them. Now let’s have a look at some of the most anticipated shows of 2010-
“Lift Kara De” on Sony– A reality show where contestants compete to prove that they are the biggest fan of their chosen Superstar. The premise look promising(with host Karan Johar) and the concept is a novel one, let’s see how it turns out to be. But yes, it may prove to be good for Sony, which is not able to deliver any promising reality show (except for Comedy Circus and Dus Ka Dum).
“National Bingo Night” on Colors- If you have seen recent ads where Abhishek talks about “aaram Classes”- yes they are the Promos of a new show to be aired soon on Colors. It’s a reality Game show where both the contestants and TV audiences will take part. The show will have two fast paced rounds of the popular guessing game ‘Bingo’ where the studio contestant plays one of many in-studio games, which is driven by the game ball numbers. The audiences meanwhile have to predict the numbers and match them with the tickets that will be handed out to them. It’s a game of intellect, luck and good guesswork!
“Rahul Dulhaniya Le jaeinge” on NDTV Imagine. This was one of the anticipated ones this year, but got delayed as NDTV wanted to air “Raaz Pichle Janam ka” before this. This is a mirror image of famous show aired last year “Rakhi Ka Swayamwar”. I mentioned about this sometime back in my post.
“Indian Premier Laughter Show” on Star One. Star one lost the heat after its flagship “Indian Laughter Challenge” show went off-air. It seems quite logical for them to come up with a similar concept this year too. People love comedy in any form, hence we would love to watch another season of that famous show.
There are other highly anticipated reality shows which are going to be on-air this year. Let’s see what all we have-
Colors– “Chak Dhoom Dhoom”- Dance talent, “Bigg Boss-4”, “Khatron Ke Khiladi-3”.
Zee– “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, Li’l Champs”.
Star Plus– “Sach Ka Saamna-2”.
Sony– “Indian Idol-5”, “Jhalak Dikhlaja-4”, “Boogie Woogie”, “Dus Ka Dum-3”.
So let’s sit back and enjoy ourselves, and don’t forget to register on iDubba if you want regular updates on the Schedules of these shows :).
