WWE dominates programme ratings; Ten 1 returns to lead ratings

MUMBAI: After staying away from the top of the table, Ten 1 returns as the most viewed channel in BARC ratings for Week 52 (24 December to 30 December). With no major sporting league currently on, sport viewers returned to their perennial favourite WWE, pushing Star Sports 2 on to the second spot. The top-ranked channel got a total of 66865 impressions in the All India, CS 4+ data.

After leading for two consecutive weeks for India?s heroics against England in the test series, Star Sports 2 dropped to the second spot, to be followed by Star Sports 1 with 45358 and 21781 impressions respectively. Ten 2 took the fourth spot with 15512 impressions and the list was concluded with Star Sports 3 moving to the fifth spot, garnering 14051 impressions.

After cricket?s unbridled domination for two consecutive weeks, WWE came back and how! The wrestling show once again proved its credentials, sweeping off the top programs? list. Ten 1 appears on the list four times, with various programmes of WWE featuring on the top three with 1152, 1044 and 1019 impressions respectively. The fourth spot is held by Ten 2, flanked by WWE Raw as the program with 917 impressions. The list is completed with Ten 1 featuring with Incredible Innings coming on the fifth slot, with 781 impressions.

The next week might see an interesting battle of numbers, with both Premier Badminton League and Pro-Wrestling League beginning on the 01 and 02 January, respectively. With the badminton league being beamed on the Star Network and PWL being broadcast on the SPNI network, it can be seen as a two-horsed war from the onset of 2017.
