BENGALURU: A Chrome Data Analytics & Media (Chrome) survey of 1,373 respondents reveals that 44 percent of television viewers preferred watching historical shows on television as opposed to 56 percent that said that they didn’t. 1,140 or a little more than 83 percent of the respondents said that they did not watch the complete season of the historical show, as compared to a little less than 17 percent (fractionally more than one sixth) who said that they watched the entire season.

More than half (61 percent) of the 1,140 respondents said that unnecessary stretching of the story beyond limits was the major reason that they did not watch the entire season of a historical. Gradual deviation into love or personal life of the story was another major reason for which 39 percent said that they did not watch the entire season.
