Zee TV is now 23 GRPs away from Star Plus, but this gap could widen once again next week as the Aamir Khan Sunday morning show Satyamev Jayate is expected to get blockbuster debut ratings.

Set’s crime-based shows, C.I.D (3.37 TVR) and Crime Petrol (3.34 TVR) have slipped to the bottom of the Top 10 shows ladder.

Colors, meanwhile, has settled at No. 4, maintaining its 195 GRPs. Balika Vadhu was the only show from the channel that found its place among the top 10. Once the No. 1 show, Balika Vadhu stood at No. 5 with 3.66 TVR.
