Ever wondered, how many TV shows have shut in past 2 months? Let’s put some light on it and see who replaced who!
|Off Air Shows||Replaced By|
|Maryada (Star Plus)||–|
|Sasural Genda Phool (Star Plus)||Ek Dusre Se Karte Hain Pyar Hum|
|I Love My India (Sab TV)||Bhai, Bhaiyya aur Brother|
|Ram Milaye Jodi (Zee TV)||Phir Subah Hogi|
|Choti Bahu (Zee TV)||Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke|
|Havan (Colors)||Kairi – Rishta Khatta Meetha|
|Laado (Colors)||Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha|
|Zindagi Kahe.. Smile Please (Life Ok)||Aasman Se Aage|
|Meri Maa (Life Ok)||Amrit Manthan|
Above all shows ended with very low ratings, except Sasural Genda Phool. But Sasural Genda Phool team along with Star team felt it’s good to end up a show on a high note rather than unnecessarily dragging it. But, one just cannot blame ratings for the same. There are a lot of other issues to be dealt with while making a TV show. And to shut it, is a big decision for channel as well as the producers. Soaps are such, one track doesn’t work and the story is changed. After a while, the original plot or the crux of the show is lost. This has been witnessed in a lot of shows. And that could be one of the major reasons for them to shut. Moreover, creatives can’t experiment a lot these days as they all have to work with lot of limitations.
Also, as Imagine TV shut, its all 5 shows shut too! 14 shows being shut in a span of 2 months and a few new ones have already replaced them. So, what happens next? A few new ones are in pipeline which will be launched post IPL; such as, Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka, Indian Idol and post that KBC on Sony TV. Also, Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’s next season is around the corner, but this time on Colors.
There are rumors about Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya (Star Plus) and Shubh Vivah on (Sony) soon to go off air. Nothing has been official about it, but there have been talks about it. As they say, there is no smoke without fire. So, which shows will replace them? Will the new shows be able to garner the same ratings for the channel or prove to be otherwise?
My question for you all is –
What kind of shows you’d like to watch? What kind of quality would you prefer? Do you want any sequels? If, yes, which ones?
Till then, do enjoy watching your own favorite shows with their own twists and tadkas in it! 🙂
