MUMBAI: In the week 49 of TAM TV ratings, Zee TV has become the gainer for the second time consecutively. While last week, the channel just earned more points, this time it has escalated to the second position from the usual third as well. With the telecast of Zee Rishtey Awards on Sunday, the channel garnered 479,878 GVTs (448,553) of which 8599 TVTs were scored solely by the award show. The channel’s sitcom Bh se Bhade witnessed good traction and reported 2,346 TVTs (2,079). Its popular dance reality show Dance India Dance 4 aired its two-hour maha episode which scored 4,565 TVTs (4,392).



Another highlight of the week was Boogie Woogie Kids Championship that made a comeback to the TV screens and even to Sony Entertainment Channel after a gap of almost four years. Interestingly, the show which has always attracted audience, did quite well again and scored 4,411 TVTs. While the channel witnessed a rise in the number of GVTs, the show couldn’t change the sixth spot at which it has been on since quite some time. It scored 241,395 GVTs (238,987).



Second highest gainer of the week was Star Plus which scored 561,197 GVTs (548,331) and continued to be at number one in the ratings chart. The channel’s new series Yeh Hai Mohabbatein grabbed eyeballs and garnered 2,320 TVTs. However, its dance reality show Nach Baliye 6 saw a drop with 3,945 TVTs (4,267). The epic series Mahabharat too lost on its viewership and could just garner 6,689 TVTs (7,170).



Colors came down to number three this week with 456,302 GVTs (478,534). Unfortunately, the channel has witnessed a drop in almost all its properties. Comedy Night with Kapil reported 7,522 TVTs (7,851), action thriller series 24 scored 2,523 TVTs (2,797). However, Bigg Boss witnessed a marginal increase and scored 5,262 TVTs (5,102).



Life OK stood at number four with 325,066 GVTs (334,327) followed by Sab with 260,862 GVTs (269,269).



Sahara One is still lagging behind and is at the bottom of the ratings list with 34,881 GVTs (33,691).

In the movie channel genre, Zee Cinema reported 211,162 GVTs (253,575); Star Gold registered 180,019 GVTs (181,167) and Movies OK scored 132,377 GVTs (133,805). On the other hand, &pictures notched up and scored 85,302 GVTs (81,291), Zee Anmol saw a growth in its viewership and marked 62,874 GVTs (55,524) and Max scored 141,652 GVTs (129,948).
