[V]'s 'Super Singer' simulcast strategy hits high ratings notes on Plus

MUMBAI: Channel [V]'s Super Singer, Star India's response to Sony's Indian Idol, which debuted on 2 December, has given reason enough for officials at India's lead network to smile.

With 12.7 million tune-ins, the show has ensured to get in urban and youth vieweship through Star One and Channel [V], and the heartland viewership through Star Plus, Star Gold and Star Utsav."

Talking about reach figures, the show managed a reach of of 11,061 across five channels of which Star Plus contributed 9,286.

It is interesting to note here, that both of [V]'s earlier music talent hunts Pop Stars 1 and 2 followed the same strategy during their respective launches so as to ensure wider sampling.
