Life OK achieves its all-time high ratings

MUMBAI: Life OK, the second Hindi general entertainment channel (GEC) from the Star Network stable, has recorded its highest rating of 167 GRPs. The channel, which had opened with 87 GRPs in December 2011, has come a long way and its popular mythological show ‘Mahadev‘ has contributed immensely in its journey.

As per TAM data (HSM, C&S, 4+) provided by Hindi GECs, though there is no change in Life OK‘s position on GEC ladder (at No.5 in the hierarchy) but it added 26 GRPs to its last week‘s tally. The success can be attributed to the telecast of ‘Mahaepisode‘ of ‘Mahadev‘ on 9 September. The special episode of the show ran for an hour and garnered 8.2 TVR, highest recorded rating of any show in this year. The show averaged around 3.1 TVR as compared to 2.9 TVR in the previous week.

Star Plus is back as the leader of the flock. The channel has maintained status quo with 250 GRPs in the week ended 15 September. Its fiction shows continue to garner good numbers as ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum‘ (5.3 TVR) continues to be the most watched show on Indian television.

Despite the loss of 11 GRPs, taking the second leadership position is Zee TV. The fiction shows of the channel like Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke (2.1 TVR), Rab Se Sona Ishq (1.4 TVR), Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuein (2.2 TVR) have seen a marginal drop in their ratings. However, ‘Dance Ke Superkids‘ (4.6 TVR) continues to fetch increased eyeballs and is the highest rated show on the weekend prime-time.

There is a tie at the No. 3 position of GEC ranking. Both Colors and Sony Entertainment Television (Set) have notched 230 GRPs each. Colors added a GRP while Set ended the week with a loss of 14 GRPs.

Colors‘ ‘Balika Vadhu‘ has been holding onto its No.2 position in the ‘Top 10 shows‘ with 4.7 TVR (last week 5.1). It replaced ‘Saas Bina Sasural‘ on the channel; its last rating was recorded 1 TVR. The new season of the channel‘s laughter reality show Comedy Circus titled ‘Comedy Circus Ke Ajoobe‘ opened with 3.3 TVR on 9 September.

Set‘s new fiction property ‘Honge Juda na hum‘, which launched on 10 September, opened with a 1 TVR. It replaced ‘Saas Bina Sasural‘ on the channel, last rating of which was recorded 1 TVR. The new season of the channel‘s laughter reality show Comedy Circus titled ‘Comedy Circus Ke Ajoobe‘ opened with 3.3 TVR on 9 September.
