Imagine TV fails to boost ratings sans Swayamvar

MUMBAI: For the second consecutive week, Imagine TV has proved that its fortunes are heavily dependent on the Swayamvar franchise.

The channel, which had crossed the 100 GRP (gross rating point) mark two weeks back with the culmination of Swayamvar season 3, Ratan ka Rishta, slumped to 65 GRPs in the immediate week after that.

Even in the week ended 23 July, the channel remained stagnant with 66 GRPs under its kitty. 
After the first and second season of the Swayamvar series, Imagine TV had also seen a drastic fall in ratings.

Meanwhile, for the week ended 23 July the status quo has been maintained among the Hindi general entertainment channels. Star Plus continues to lead with 316 GRPs (last week 320) followed by Colors with 267 GRPs (last week 271), according to Tam data for the Hindi speaking markets.

Zee TV, which was witnessing a fall over the last few weeks, was the top gainer in the week. The channel saw a 35 GRP jump in the week to close with 220 GRP (from 185). Sony Entertainment Television, however, is still in pursuit and ended the week with 193 GRPs (from 182 in the last week).

Sab, meanwhile, fell to 124 GRPs from 133 in the preceding week while Star One and Sahara One were at 36 and 33 GRPs respectively.
