Bigg Boss 4 ends on a high note with 6.7 TVR

MUMBAI: Colors’ controversial reality show Bigg Boss has completed its fourth edition with a viewer response that may propel the channel to soon come out with yet another fresh season.

As per Tam data, the grand finale of the show on 8 January not only fetched a whopping 6.7 TVR for over three hours of telecast time but also surpassed the ratings of all recent reality shows like Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega (Imagine TV), KBC (Sony), DID –Li’l Masters (Zee TV) and MasterChef (Star Plus).

Commenting on the success of Bigg Boss, Colors programming head Ashvini Yardi said, “We are ecstatic that Bigg Boss Season 4 finale has garnered a fabulous rating of 6.7, which is the highest ever rating marked for any reality show in the year 2010-11.”
Colors has aired three seasons of Bigg Boss, and with every season it has seen a jump in the ratings, be it opening, weekday or weekend.
