MUMBAI: Star News' recently launched show Saas Bahu aur Saazish has gained immense popularity with the viewers and has figured as the No. 1 show in the 2.30 pm time-slot, according to Tam ratings.

This unique show targeted at housewives captures all the excitement and news of popular serials across channels and the tele-world. It not only looks at the twists and turns of the 'Kyunki kahanis' or what Jassi could be up to next but also delves into the lives of television celebrities.

And this has helped us expand our viewer ship base by brining in traditionally non-news viewing audiences into our fold."

Saas Bahu aur Saazish now leads in the 2.30 pm slot with a market share of 27 per cent (week- 44 - 47 average, C&S, 15+, HSM), ahead of its nearest competitor Aaj Tak (20 per cent). In the C&S 15+ Female, HSM category Saas Bahu aur Saazish is further ahead at 32 per cent with Aaj Tak coming in second at 20 per cent.

This displays how the new offering has been successful in bringing traditionally non-news viewing audiences into its fold.
