MUMBAI: It’s the leader in the Hindi general entertainment space in India and has been so for most part since the beginning of last decade.

In week 6 of TAM TV ratings, Star Plus showed its might. The channel’s viewership during the week was the highest ever in the history of Indian television, helped by its bollywood awards show Star Guild Awards and its decision to extend all its weekday prime time fiction properties to Saturday.

Star Plus fetched 728,231 GVTs, up from 626,570 GVTs in the previous week. The channel’s Star Guild Awards show scored 8,063 TVTs.

Star Plus’ epic series Mahabharat too had its highest ever ratings since its launch and recorded 7,850 TVTs, up from 7,136 TVTs in the previous week.

Zee TV was in the second position in week 6 with 495,313 GVTs, up from 467,656 GVTs in the previous week. All the other Hindi GECs saw a drop in viewership ratings during the week.

Viacom18’s Colors was in the third position with 424,431 GVTs, down from 446,579 GVTs a week earlier as both its highly-rated properties saw a huge drop in viewership. India’s Got Talent scored 5,876 TVTs in week 6, down from 7,403 TVTs, and Comedy Nights with Kapil’s viewership fell to 7,300 TVTs from 8,878 TVTs a week earlier.

Sony continued to be at the bottom of the chart and recorded 251,650 GVTs, down from 298,060 GVTs.

Sahara One fetched 35,896 GVTs, down from 39,172 GVTs.

In the movie genre, Zee Cinema had 185,836 GVTs in week 6, down from 198,751 GVTs; Star Gold 193,648 GVTs, down from 202,153 GVTs; Movies OK 134,400 GVTs, up from 130,648 GVTs; &pictures 83,202, down from 88,620 GVTs; Zee Anmol 79,408 GVTs, up from 65,415 GVTs and Max 206,080 GVTs, up from (192,801).
