IPL 5 is over and its best positive effect has been witnessed in Diya Aur Baati Hum ratings! It had lot of drama last week and performances of lead actors were worth all praises. Surprisingly even with most interesting matches in its last week, Max ratings decreased!

Bade Acche Laggte Hain completed one year today. Last year the show was launched with great promotions and high expectations. And for a while, it lived up to it too but now the tables have turned. There is lot of happening on its front and a time leap is expected in the show sometime in mid June. Let’s wait and watch what ‘different’ or ‘new’ stuff is in stored for the audience.

Little presence of Barun Sobti aka Arnav in Iss Pyaar Ko Kyaa Naam Doon has got little increase in the ratings. Barun, your fans love you a lot, and we wish you finish your movie shoot ASAP, so you can stop playing hide and seek in your show. 😉

Latest offering by Zee TV, Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke which replaced Choti Bahu season 2, has got an opening of 1.6 which is OK. The promos were good, first week story was more of establishment of characters and gradual story progression. The show does look promising. All the best to the team!

GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs; Sony TV has regained its number 2 position followed by Zee TV and Colors.

Well, that’s it for today. Let’s see what surprise next week brings. Till then, keep watching your favorite shows and keep yourself entertained!

[TRP Talks] IPL is steady, Life Ok’s Mahadev is top gainer for the channel!

Even though IPL matches were interesting and there was a lot of buzz about match fixing; it’s steady in terms of the ratings. Surprisingly Life Ok’s Mahadev has gone up immensely; from 1.1 to 2.3. That’s an awesome hike! It took Life Ok to another level altogether, and the difference is noticeable in its GRPs. Even Saubhagyavato Bhava rose to 1.4 from 1.1. Kudos to life Ok team!

Star Plus’ Iss Pyaar Ko Kyaa Naam Doon and Pratigya have dropped dramatically! Seems like, Mr. Barun Sobti’s MIA trick is not working in favor of Iss Pyaar Ko Kyaa Naam Doon. And about Pratigya, well, there has to be less of drama and more of story to keep people hooked on.

Sony TV’s over all GRPs has decreased and there are only 2 shows with good ratings viz. Kya Huaa Tera Vaada and Bade Acche Laggte Hain. Rest all shows have low ratings and nothing exciting to look forward to in terms of the content.

GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs, followed by Zee TV, Colors and Sony TV respectively. Few weeks back, Sony was on number 2, then number 3 and now it’s on number 4.

Well, that’s it for today. Let’s see what surprise next week brings. Till then, keep watching your favorite shows and keep supporting your favorite IPL teams. As it’s the last week of IPL 5.

KKR fans are on a super high as the team has qualified for the finals!

Say, IPL ki Jai and next week Tata Bye-Bye..!!! 🙂

Some other reality television shows and how they performed last week:

I feel really good to see maximum numbers in BLUE!!! Ratings of your favorite shows have increased 🙂

  • Diya Baati Aur Hum has regained its ratings of 5.0 and still there are 100 percent chances of increasing it next week; as Mr. Amir Khan will be making a special appearance on the show in order to promote his own offereing ‘Satyamev Jayate’ starting 6th May, Sunday, 11 am.
  • While, Saathiya fans might be sad as the ratings have kept on declining for a while now. But nevertheless, I’m sure writers are working hard to gain back it’s number 1 position. Let’s wait and watch how soon that happens!
  • The new show Ek Dusre Se Karte Hain Pyar Hum which replaced Sasural Genda Phool has got an opening of 1.9; while Sasural Genda Phool ended with 2.2. Let’s see next week, how the show helps Star Plus in TRP charts!

Remarkable increase has been seen in Kyaa hua Tera Vaada -2.2 (1.7). Balaji is rocking with all 4 on-air shows of them! Last week Bade Acche Lagte Hain showed a hike of 0.4 and this week it’s Kya Hua Tera Vaada with a hike of 0.5. Time to celebrate! They’ve also done quite good promotions on Sony Max during IPL matches. The promos of Kya Hua Tera Vaada and Bade Achhe Lagte Hain were and are really rocking! But I guess it has declined IPL ratings! Is this the case? Do you feel airing promos of Sony TV’s serials and increase in their ratings is the reason for IPL ratings to decline? IPL saw considerable loss in GRPs of Max. It is 299 this week in comparison to 344 last week.

@undercoverpro smartly tweeted: “Nice Ratings management. Max loses 40 odd points and Sony gains about the same. It’s like Transfer Pricing.”

GRP wise Sony happily regained its number 2 position back and has given tough competition to Star Plus. There is just 15 points of difference between the two. This gap can be filled with such awesome content of the shows.

Well, that’s it for today. Sony TV fans Rejoice! All the best to all GEC’s as well as IPL. Let’s see what surprise next week brings. Till then, keep watching your favorite shows and keep supporting your favorite IPL teams.

Say, Jai TV serials ki!!!

  • Kahani Comedy Circus Ki (Sony) – Sun – 2.5 (2.5) Sat – 2.5 (3.1)

IPL is ruling, but not-so-much now. Last week we did see some of the interesting matches. But IPL has not seen any more considerable hike in GRPs of Max. It is 344 (341).

Diya Aur Baati Hum still is at number 1 position. But the ratings over-all has declined. Last week, we did not see much effect of IPL on the shows. Few have remained same on the list, few rose and a few fell. So, juggling has been happening! Producers and writers have really got best of their interesting twists to glue the audience. Many other shows like Dekha Ek Khwab, Choti Bahu, Yahan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli, Adaalat, CID and Crime Patrol, etc. has shown a hike. This is a good sign for the GECs. If the interesting twists continue, ratings will show a positive hike. And as IPL keeps on going, matches become more interesting during its finale; there’s lots of DRAMA to be unfolded in the coming weeks in your favorite TV soaps. Stay tuned!!!

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain fans rejoice!!!! It is the only show which has rose 0.4 points since last week. And the promos are intriguing too! iDubba’s predictions proved to be right! Priya got to know about the truth and the track is leading towards Ram-Priya’s separation. But, there has to be a ‘twist’ in this too! Watch out for it guys!!! My intuition says, we all will ENJOY watching!

Last week, new show has been launched at 9.30 pm on ZEE TV – Phir Subah Hogi. It replaced Ram Milaye Jodi. And it has got decent opening of 2.2. The show really seems promising. Let’s see does it turn out to be a lucky mascot for Zee or not!

That’s it for this week. Stay tuned @ iDubba for more!

TRP talk of the week- shows that rocked and why IPL couldn’t

Sony Max IPL TRPS

    • IPL opening cermony (Tue)                        1.3
    • IPL T20 Chennai vs Mumbai (Wed)           6.0
    • IPL T20 Kolkatta vs Delhi (Thurs)               5.5
    • IPL T20 Pune vs Mumbai (Fri)                    3.2
    • IPL T20 Rajasthan vs Punjab (Fri)             3.8
    • IPL T20 Bangalore vs Delhi (Sat)               2.6
    • IPL T20 Chennai vs Deccan (Sat)              3.7

Is it the IPL fever? That, TRPs of your favorite daily soaps are going down? Yes bhi, No bhi. IPL started with not-so-good opening ceremony but the opening matches were BANG ON! MI vs CSK match was KILLER! And major TV audience switched their channels from soaps to Sony MAX. But that was only for first 2 days. Post this even IPL has entered the league of declining ratings! Indian audience is Unpredictable. Even cricket fans are not watching IPL 5 this year.

Came across two people discussing the same thing; one said, next year IPL may be renamed to IPLT10 with 10 over match. The other said, agree, I’d not be surprised if they did so. Now, I think, few years down the line, there will be only super over matches to save time as everything is moving at a faster pace these days! LOL! Moral of the story is, even IPL will NOT work, if you do not have something innovative and NEW to entertain the audience.

Let’s talk about the soaps now. Diya Aur Baati Hum rules the TRP chart this week also, followed by Saathiya and Balika Vadhu. Because of IPL or the storyline, we can see most of the shows dropping in this week’s TRPs but some of them have actually managed to pick themselves up this week. The remarkable increase is noticed in Zee TV’s Punar Vivah from 2.0 to 2.6! That’s quite a hike!

Pre-Marriage track seems to be actually working. Even Sasural Simar ka managed to increase its ratings, being in 7.30 pm slot. It rose from 2.8 to 3.1. Rest all shows which are in top 10 decreased immensely like Diya Aur Baati, Saath Nibhana Saathiya and even Bade Acche Laggte Hain. One cannot blame IPL for all the shows decline.

The root cause is something else- It may be storyline, screenplay or even acting of the actors. But, all collective efforts have brought the shows down. What the Producers have to worry about is the main plot and script of the shows. If you have something very fresh to offer to audience, it will definitely work. But, if you will keep on showcasing the same old stuff with icing, chances are you might get dipped into that very icing!

On the other hand- CID, Crime Patrol and Adaalat have managed to glue only its ‘loyal’ audience with the ratings 4.4, 4.1 and 1.8 respectively. Their ratings have also dropped badly. Do you think it’s because of IPL? Yes? No? Let us know via comments.
