Ratings today – Haven’t juggled a lot.

Diya Aur Baati Hum still manages to be at number 1 position but this time it has fallen! Its ratings are really unpredictable. Last to last week it was 5.0, then last week 5.6 and this week again 5.0. Agree, it’s consistently on number one, but this much difference in ratings?

Jhalak Dikhla Ja’s second week has also been so-so, nothing great; neither in terms of performances nor in terms of the ratings!

Byah Hamari Bahu Ka finishes a month and finally there is a 0.1 rise in ratings of the show. But, viewers are in here for a major twist to be revealed – aakhir kab tak chupayenge ki kyun ho raha hai byah hamari bahu ka? Wait for the mystery to unveil!

Pavitra Rishta has managed to pick up, finally the big drama sold off! Even Balika Vadhu managed to pick up really well. It has helped Colors in GRPs as well.

In 10.30 pm slot, Punar Vivah and Pratigya are still ruling and Bade Acche Lagte Hain fans are not so happy with this! My message to all Bade Acche Lagte Hain fans, please try to enjoy the show and wait for ‘ek nayi shuruwat’, do not lose hope, you might not know, it just become BIGGER and BETTER!

Pyaar Ka Dard Hain – meetha meetha pyaara pyaara opened with the same ratings with which Sajda Tere Pyaar Mein ended – 1.5. Not that great opening as per Star Plus!

GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs; followed by Colors, Zee and Sony. There’s just negligible difference between Zee and Colors channels and both are competing for number 2 positionSony has been consistently falling and this time it’s a huge fall for it! Buck up Sony team!

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!

Ratings today – Have juggled a lot!

It’s party time for Diya Aur Baati Hum team as well as fans! It has regained its 5.6 ratings and more the drama, more the ratings. Aagey aagey dekho hota hai kya!

Jhalak Dikhla Ja opened with 3.1 which is considerably good! So, let’s see will the shaking of celebs shake the TRPs too?

The third week of Madhubala and Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka has not been that good for them. Ratings have gone down. In Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka, there is no clarity as to what is happening or what is about to happen; the story is just going nowhere. Sincerely, time for some major twist in the tale! Madhubala has not been able to live up to its expectations and that’s why it’s obvious for the ratings to decline.

Surprise package was Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuyeh on Zee TV. It has gone up to 2.7. Wishing all the best to the team to maintain it!

After almost, 3 weeks or even more, Bade Acche Lagte Hain (Sony TV) had regained the ratings of 3.1, had also become a slot leader in 10.30 PM slot, last week! But what happened now? It is no more the slot leader…Punar Vivah and Pratigya both are at top most position with same ratings of 3.0! This is a huge fall for Bade Acche Laggte Hain. There was a huge outrage even on this baseless courtroom drama which audience did not like it at all. But nevertheless, we shall look forward to ‘ek nayi shuruwat’, I’m sure, ratings will soar then!

GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs; followed by Colors, Zee and Sony. There’s just negligible difference between Zee and Colors and both are competing for number 2 position. Sony has been consistently falling and this time it’s a huge fall for it! Buck up Sony team!

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!

Ratings today – interesting also, not so interesting also!
The second week of Madhubala and Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka has not been that good for them. Ratings have gone down. In Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka, the curiosity of the title has yet not been revealed and still the establishment of the base is going on! It’s been 2 weeks now, story has to move forward! Madhubala’s week 2, was so far so good. It has lots of drama yet to be unfolded. Let’s see what twists and turns next week follows; in terms of show as well as ratings!
After opening 11 pm slot and shifting Kuch Toh Log Kahenge, show enjoyed a great jump in the ratings and now its job is to maintain it and increase it. But, seems, the current story is not liked by the audience. Time for a reality check, team!
Also, Sab TV launched its new show along with Hats off “Bhai Bhaiyya aur Brother” and sadly, it has also opened with 0.4 that is very low! Let’s see how next week shapes up! The promos seem funny but not that hilarious too!
After almost, 3 weeks or even more, Bade Acche Lagte Hain (Sony TV) has regained the ratings of 3.1, has also become a slot leader in 10.30 PM slot! After all the leap promos and Priya going to Jail, Niharika’s truth revelation; high pitched drama has got ratings! Kudos to the team! Fans, be happy and wait for some more OTT drama of accident sequence in the upcoming episodes!
Mahadev on Life Ok has increased to 2.1 from 1.6! After the sati track, this Parvati track is also loved by the audience. Way to go !!!
GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs; followed by Zee TV, Sony and Colors.
There’s just negligible difference between the three channels and everyone is fighting for number 2 position.
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!

Too many things happened in last week! Sony TV opened 11 PM slot and Kuch Toh Log Kahenge is shifted to the same. It gained 1.4 ratings. A superb answer to all those who thought the show will not work. Interesting step!

Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka which replaced Kuch Toh Log Kahenge did not quite live up to the expectations in terms of ratings. It is too low for the opening week. Well, the show is practically good, all the best to the team. Wish next week brings out the maximum ratings!

Madhubala- Ek Ishq Ek Junoon on Colors TV, which replaced Veer Shivaji got an awesome opening of 2.8; spontaneously super hit! The entire concept, execution and editing has been crisp and interesting. Let’s see how far it takes colors TV in terms of GRPs. But, as per first week, the show is a HIT HIT!

Indian Idol opened with 2.1. Again, it was not as per expectations according to the intriguing and heart touching promos. Last week was a major one for Sony TV; too many new steps taken by them, one turned out to be great, others not so great! Also, it lost GRPs as well.

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

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! 🙂

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!

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 or other crime based shows and how they performed last week:

DID Li’l Masters toh chhaa gaye hain !!! Jahan dekho unka he bol-bala hai..

The show has got 6.2 TVR, which is Remarkable!

Again, I’m very happy to see so many numbers in Blue. But this time, IPL has ruled again; as you can see above, Max has the highest TRPs. Star Plus has still maintained its top position in GECs and this time have also shown a hike in its GRPs. Zee TV fans be happy; as it has gained its number 2 position after competing with Sony TV for quite some time now. Sony is now on number 3 as per GRPs, followed by colors on number 4.

Kyaa Hua Tera Vaada has picked it up so well. ‘Kaalit potna’ track managed to actually gain ratings. The current track is very interesting and it clearly depicts that audiences love it. Last to last week its rating was 1.7 which increased to 2.2 and now it’s 2.4. It has shown a consecutive hike past 3 weeks. Now, I really hope this consistency is maintained!

Shocker is, now Bade Acche Lagte Hain is not the only top show on Sony TV, it has to share its position with Kya Hua Tera Vaada. Now the big question is; will the magic of Kyunki-Kahani be recreated? Considering both the shows and the time slot 10-11 pm; will that happen? What do you think?

Sudden decline has been noticed in Tarak Mehta Ka Oooltah Chashma on Sab TV. The creative team needs to show something very different and not make it so monotonous every week.

Ek Hazaron Mein Meri Behena Hai, Saathiya and Yeh Rishta have managed to increase. Last week’s decline helped them to come up with newer tracks and a fast pace story which has been witnessed today in terms of ratings. Good Job!

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.

Say, Om Cricketay Namah!!!

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!!!

TV Industry mein kab kya ho jaaye.. Koi IMAGINE nahi kar sakta..!!!

Turner Broadcasting System decided to cut down investments into its Hindi general entertainment channel Imagine TV, which it had acquired from NDTV in 2010. April 12, 2012 was the last working day for the channel and then Imagine TV would be airing re-runs beginning April 13, 2012. This also applies to its international feed Imagine Dil Se.

Apparently, there were ‘talks’ which were unheard about this abrupt ending of Imagine TV. But it did not last long; people thought it to be just another rumor and did not pay any heed to it. But the declining ratings did not lie. Imagine TV has been consistently on a decline; it became worse after the launch of Life Ok since December 2011. So, somewhere, someone might have predicted about Imagine biding adieu soon!

Imagine TV has always given some different shows. For example, shows like Dwarkadheesh and Chandragupta Maurya. These shows did better in terms of content as well as ratings compared to other shows. I’m sure the loyal fans would have felt bad because the shows had to undergo sudden ending. For ardent fans, shows very much become a part of their daily routine. Imagine how you would feel, when you daily meet your best friend and suddenly he/she stops meeting you without any news? You have no clue, right? But as they say, “the show must go on”; we follow this, feel sad, depressed for a few days and then move on. Unfortunately, these 2 good shows also, were not able to save the sinking ship of Imagine TV.

I have quite a few friends who were working with the channel. I really feel sad for them. When we happened to talk, one of them mentioned, “nobody had imagined it’d shut like this; without any notice given to its employees.” And I was speechless. I did not know how to react! I feel miserable for the crew associated with the production houses; like technicians, light men, etc. How are they supposed to manage their own household? As we all know, one TV show practically employees 200 people. For the record, 200 households are run by one TV show. And now one whole channel has shut. There were more than 5 on-air shows on Imagine TV. Just imagine, 5 on-air shows shut, more than 1000 people are unemployed. This is a SHOCK!

A shock NOT only to me or you, but to everyone associated with the industry as well as the audience! Actors, producers and even directors are left wondering HOW such thing happened! Everyone is thinking in the same direction – “They should have given prior notice.” But nevertheless, it just happened! I’m proud to be a part of the industry where everybody comes together in crisis. Other channels and different production houses are trying their best to provide jobs to all those who NEED it.

This sudden ending of Imagine TV has made everyone think and everyone needs to buck up. Bhaiyya ratings ka he sab khel hai. Kab kya ho jaaye, kaunsa show bandh ho jaaye, koi IMAGINE nahi kar sakta…!! One week you do not get ratings and imagine channel decides to shut your show? It may happen, it may not! Just work best and get all your crazy, whacky ideas from nowhere and execute them in the best way to run your show.

Let’s pray and wish best for those who are unemployed and hope they get employed again, sooner than soon!
