Colors programming head Ashvini yardi said, "We are delighted that Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi Tiguna has received the highest ever opening mid-week TVR of 6.9. This upswing clearly suggests that the audiences have appreciated the new format with 13 hunks and Priyanka Chopra. The viewers will be in for a treat as the next few episodes will be filled with cutting edge stunts and actions that have never been seen before." 
Meanwhile, Colors claims that the third season of the show, which has seen a change in format – from one male host and 13 ladies to one lady host and 13 male contestants – has also seen an increase in the reach and average time spent vis-?-vis.

KKKx3 debut episode reach was 20.9 per cent, up from a 16.7 per cent reach in the second season debut episode across the HSM metros. The viewers spent average time of 29.2 minutes on the Priyanka Chopra-hosted show as compared to 27.2 minutes spent on second season’s launch episode.
