According to Adyanthaya, "There is no scarcity of crime shows
in the country. The TAM statistics suggest that crime-based programmes
garner ratings in line with other popular genres like political
news and lifestyle shows. Our Red Alert show, in fact, has
been topping the rating charts."
Sansani will air from Monday to Friday, while Insaaf
ka Tarazu , a weekly show, will be based on court cases. The
novelty factor in the latter is that viewers too would be involved
and, as per a proposal, may also get to be
the judge for cases.
Crime-based shows seem to be the flavour of news channels. While
NDTV 24X7 has Dial 100 and Crime and the City, Aaj
Tak has Jurm. Zee News has Crime File and Crime
Reporter while Sahara Samay Rashtriya airs Charge Sheet.
