IPL6 takes Max to the top of the GRP charts

MUMBAI: It‘s not only Gayle, Bravo and Pollard who have been hitting the maximum in the sixth season of the Indian Premier League. Sony Max has trumped Star India‘s flagship Hindi general entertainment channel Star Plus to take the lead in the GRP race for week 17 of TAM.

As per TAM data (C&S, 4+, HSM) provided by Max, the channel has notched 248 GRPs in the fourth week of the tournament, making it the number one channel in India. Star Plus managed to collect 215 GRPs (last week 233) in the week ended 27 April.

The tournament also continues to beat all competition in prime time. Pepsi IPL‘s average primetime viewership is at 3.6 TVR as compared to Star Plus‘s 2.0 TVR, Colors 1.6 and Zee TV at 1.7 TVR in the Hindi Speaking Market (HSM).

Pepsi IPL 6 also registered a reach of 168 million viewers in just four weeks and has already surpassed the total reach of any of the previous editions of the league. Sony Max EVP and business head Neeraj Vyas said, "Our ratings of this week reiterate the fact that Pepsi IPL 2013 is the biggest entertainer of the year. We are indeed delighted to see that it has already achieved such incredible reach just halfway through the tournament. We are thrilled that it continues to offer spectacular entertainment to our viewers and unparalleled value to our partners."

On the Hindi GEC Space, Zee TV has emerged as the biggest gainer of the Hindi GECs genre in the week 17 of TAM‘s ratings. The flagship Hindi GEC from Zee Entertainment Enterprises (Zeel), added around 22 GRPs to register 191 GRPs. Almost all the shows of the channel have witnessed improvement in numbers.
