AXN claims its reality shows top charts in US

For those tired of the eternal "saas bahu" tangles, there's good news from the action front. AXN claims that two of its reality shows currently being aired in India have smashed records in the US.

The two shows from the Columbia Tristar stable, Survivor Africa and Crime Scene Investigation (CSI), have been voted number one and five respectively on the US charts, claims the channel. Both shows will close to sensational ends this month. CSI is a drama about a passionate team of forensic investigators trained to solve mysterious and seemingly unsolvable crimes by examining and assessing the evidence at the scene of the crime.

CSI has been nominated for a Golden Globe award for best dramatic television series. The critically acclaimed series, which has become the best performing show in its primetime slot in the US and the highest ranked new drama of the season, has also won numerous other accolades including 'Best New Series of the year' in the 2001 TV Guide Awards.

Survivor Africa is all about pushing participants' physical and mental endurance to the limits in a challenging and excruciatingly intimidating environment. Sixteen strangers stranded on a difficult and dangerous terrain, battle it out in a game of wits, grit, deception and determination, in an edge-of-the-seat entertainment for the audience.

SET senior vice president, franchise channels and distribution Shantonu Aditya says more such shows are in the pipeline in the coming year.
