Sony shuffles shows; 'Crime Patrol' to air 7 days a week at 10.30 pm

MUMBAI: In a bid to cash in on its long running crime show, Sony Entertainment Television will soon be shuffling its programming. Crime Patrol, which was earlier aired on Fridays and Saturdays at 11 pm, will now be aired seven days a week in the 10.30 pm slot.


Come 26 October, the show, which has been running for 12 years now, will be taking over the 10.30 pm time slot replacing the current show Balaji Telefilms’ Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyar, which will move to 6.30 pm.


Crime Patrol was the first of its kind in the genre and till today has retained its authenticity in depiction of crime. While some cases made audience question their belief in humanity, they were successful in creating a powerful impact on the viewers and raising their awareness. The show has garnered much appreciation from viewers for its incessant efforts of presenting the various evils that hamper our society.
