Sab to beef up 10 pm with launch of 3 weekly comedy shows in August

MUMBAI: Sab is beefing up its 10 pm slot with the launch of three weekly comedy shows in August. Bhootwala Serial, India?s first horror comedy show, will move out from the slot, though it is still not clear whether the daily will stay in another time zone or end. Jaspal Bhatti appears on the 10 pm slot as an IAS officer in Thank You Jijaji. The show will air every Monday, from 3 August.

The second show to be unveiled is Sonu Sweety, a light-hearted, husband-wife comedy, starring Shweta Kwatra and Varun Badola. It starts on 4 August and will telecast on Tuesdays.

India?s first courtroom comedy, Yeh Chanda Kanoon Hai, debuts on 5 August. The show will air on Wednesdays and have Juhi Parmar as the protagonist.

FIR moves from Fridays to replace Bhootwala Serial on Thursdays.

Says Sab business head Anooj Kapoor, ?With these new shows, Sab will have some of the biggest names in comedy on Indian Television. We are committed to give our audiences different flavours and genres of comedies with every new launch.?

The channel recently launched two new daily comedies, and Tedhi Baat Shekar Ke Saath, which helped it move up the GRP ladder. The channel garnered 67 GRPs for the week ended 4 July, according to Tam data.
