MUMBAI: Viacom18’s flagship Hindi general entertainment channel (GEC) Colors has made it to the second position again after a hiatus of four weeks. And helping the channel regain its ranking is the first Golden Petal Awards.

As per TAM data for the week ended 31 December (C&S, 4+, HSM), Colors has added 38 GRPs (gross rating points) to its kitty to register 256 GRPs (last week 218). The telecast of Colors Golden Petal Awards (CGPA) on 25 December at 8 pm fetched a TVR of 4.98.

As per data provided by Colors, the show had 20.5 per cent reach and 48.6 minutes of time spent per viewer (TSV). Interestingly, CGPA is the highest rated TV awards show as on rival channels Zee Rishtay Awards (Zee TV) and Star Parivaar Awards (Star Plus) could manage a TVR of 4.71 and 4.0 respectively.

at 9 pm that clocked 2.1 TVR.

Zee TV, meanwhile, saw a 14 GRP loss in the week and closed its tally with 194 GRPs. Last week the channel was the biggest gainer because of the telecast of its flagship award show, Zee Rishtay Awards.

Sab maintained its position and ended the week with 113 GRPs (last week 122) while the newly launched GEC from Star India bouquet, Life OK, slipped to 74 GRPs (last week 87 GRP) in its second week run.
