Zee claims second spot pushing Colors behind

MUMBAI: In week two of TAM TV ratings, Zee TV dislodged Colors from the second position, pushing it to the third. It seems post Bigg Boss, the general entertainment channel that was at the second position almost throughout the year in 2013, hasn’t been able to make a mark with its newly launched shows.


While Zee TV garnered 488,194 GVTs (449,211), Colors dipped and scored 456,890 GVTs (522,158). Star Plus continued to be on the number one spot with 629,447 GVTs (647,066).


Sab and Life OK witnessed good increase of numbers and stood at fourth and fifth position with 338,233 GVTs (360,843) and 337,771 GVTs (323,456) respectively. Sony continued to be at the sixth position as it noted 263,081 GVTs (266,161).


Coming back to the chart topper Star Plus, its dance reality show Nach Baliye 6 saw a huge jump and recorded at 5,350 TVTs (3,523). The epic series Mahabharat also saw a rise in its viewership garnered 7,794 TVTs (6,811).


Second placed, Zee TV’s properties saw a rise in its viewership. While Aur Pyar Ho Haya scored 4,044 TVTs (3,101), the sitcom Bh Se Bhade scored 2,160 TVTs (1,534). Its dance reality series Dance India Dance 4 scored 4,618 TVTs (4,410) on Saturday and 4,249 TVTs (3,687) on Sunday. On 11 January, Saturday, the channel aired the Hindi feature film Ramaiya Vastavaiya that grabbed good eyeballs and garnered 5,926 TVTs.


While Colors that lost its second position, witnessed a good response for the fifth edition of the talent reality show - India’s Got Talent and garnered 9,380 TVTs on Saturday, the other two fictional shows that replaced Bigg Boss witnessed a drop in its ratings. Beintehaa reported 2,633 TVTs (2,964) and Rangrasiya saw 2,564 TVTs (3,199). However, comedy seems to be working well for the channel as its show Comedy Nights With Kapil that had seen a drop last week is back with a bang and has garnered 10,420 TVTs (8,973).


Surprisingly, Sony, which occupies the sixth position, has seen a rise in all its properties. However, the position of the channel remains the same. The recently started fiction series – Main Na Bhoolungi and Ekk Nayi Pehchaan scored 1,054 TVTs (884) and 2,087 TVTs (1,965) respectively. The dance reality show Boogie Woogie Kids Championship too saw a rise in its fifth week and garnered 2,733 TVTs (2,488).


Sahara One remains at the bottom of the chart marking no major difference and earned 37,863 GVTs (36,162).


In the movie channel genre, Zee Cinema reported 196,560 GVTs (200,662); Star Gold registered 182,903 GVTs (195,587) and Movies OK scored 137,410 GVTs (143,920). While &pictures scored 84,280 GVTs (91,406), Zee Anmol notched up and marked 86,317 GVTs (71,855) and Max scored 202,083 GVTs (221,690).
