BENGALURU: The combined ratings of the top 5 English news ratings as per Broadcast Audience Research Council of India (BARC) plunged to their lowest in week 23 of 2019 (Saturday, 13 July 2019 to Friday, 19 July 2019, week or period under review) since week 13. The combined weekly ratings of the top 5 English news channels at 1.809 million weekly impressions was far lower than the earlier lowest of 1.848 million weekly impressions in week 24 of 2019. BARC had recommenced publishing limited data in the public data in week 13 of 2019 after stopping in week 6, ostentatiously to allow ratings to stabilise after implementation of the new tariff order, hence week 13 of 2019 has been used as a reference point.

The list of channels in BARC’s weekly list of top 5 English news channels for week 29 of 2019  were the same as in week 28, except for a small shuffling in ranks. Four of the channels had a drop in viewership, while ratings of one went up.

As has become a norm, the Arnab Goswami led Republic TV headed BARC’s weekly list of top 5 English news channels in week 29 of 2019 with 0.564 million weekly impressions as compared to 0.593 million weekly impressions in week 28. At second rank in week 29 of 2019 was Times Now with 0.404 million weekly impressions as compared to second rank and 0.424 million weekly impressions in the previous week.

Also continuing on at its previous week’s third rank was pubcaster Doordarshan’s English news channel DD India in week 29 of 2019 with 0.367 million weekly impressions as compared to 0.345 million weekly impressions in the previous week. Climbing up a place to fourth rank in week 29 of 2019 was CNN News18 with 0.264 million weekly impressions as compared to 0.279 million weekly impressions in week 28.
