It were the regular shows that fetched the channel good viewership as it garnered 467656 GVTs (gross viewership in thousands), up from last week’s 441168 GVTs. However, Star Plus maintains its first position with a considerable hike – 626570 (606361) GVTs.

The other gainers of the week included Life OK, Sony, Sahara One and the newly launched GEC from the Network 18 group – Rishtey.

However, coming back to the chart topper Star Plus, the channel’s popular shows got good viewership. The grand finale ofNach Baliye 6 on Saturday garnered 6155 TVTs (Television viewership in thousands). The much celebrated epicMahabharat also saw a rise and garnered 7136 TVTs (6954).

Zee TV may have gone up in the chart but its much celebrated dance reality show – Dance India Dance-4 – witnessed a drop on Sunday and registered 3859 TVTs (4036). However, on the following Saturday it made up and garnered 3766 TVTs (2974). Aur Pyar Ho Gaya registered 4232 TVTs (3883) and Bh se Bhade 1645 TVTs (1712).

Colors saw a slight dip and registered 446579 GVTs (449428). Apparently, one of its most popular show, Comedy Nights With Kapil couldn't manage to match up to its last week’s ratings as it registered 8878 TVTs (10091). However, India’s Got Talent saw a rise as it garnered 7403 TVTs (7187).
