HISTORY TV18 continues to rule the TVR chart with its show Pawn
Stars tops the genre with a commendable 0.18 TVR. Out of top
10 programmes of the genre, 5 are on History TV18.
interesting to note is that each of these shows belongs to a different
sub-genre within Factual Entertainment, which is indicative of HISTORY
TV18s promise of having differentiated & a variety of
programming through superlative content.
Stars - a reality series that showcases the lifestyle & work
of pawnbrokers in Las Vegas Chasing Mummies, the series follows
legendary archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass as he pursues one of the
most challenging and exciting jobs in the world: discovering new
archaeological finds while managing digs throughout Egypt. While
Invention Intervention features innovative product ideas.
success of HISTORY TV18s sub-genres is a noteworthy point
particularly because over the last few years the Factual Entertainment
genre has been dominated by a heavy dose of survival
based shows by other genre channels, which incidentally have considerable
representation in this weeks list.
this also indicates audience preference for variety & differentiated
content, values that have formed the bed-rock of HISTORYs
novel programming approach. This coupled with the fact that HISTORY
TV18s continues to lead the genre in Time Spent per Viewer,
highlighting stickiness towards its varied content.
