BENGALURU: There was not too much change in Broadcast Audience Research Council of India’s (BARC) weekly list of Top 10 Channels Across Genres on All Platforms for week 47 of 2019 (Saturday, 16 November 2019 to Friday, 22 November 2019, week or period under review) as nine of the channels were same as in week 46.

One channel – Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd’s (Zeel) free to air (FTA) Hindi GEC Big Magic exited the list in week 47 of 2019 to be replaced by Zeel’s Tamil GEC Zee Tamil as compared to the previous week.

Entertainment viewership falls in week 47 of 2019 as compared to the previous week

Though overall entertainment viewership seemed to have dropped according to BARC’s weekly data for TV+OOH viewership, there was not too much impact on the combined viewership numbers of the Top 10 channels across genres lists on All Platforms, on the Pay TV platform and the FTA platform as is obvious from the charts that follow. TV viewership dropped to 14 billion weekly impressions in week 47 of 2019 from 14.4 billion in week 46. An analysis of the rough data furnished by BARC, OTT viewership seems to have fallen by almost 50 percent during the week under review as compared to the previous week. Simple mathematical calculations show that OTT viewership in week 46 was 0.2 billion weekly impressions, which fell to about 0.1 billion weekly impressions in week 47 of 2019.

Please refer to the figure below for TV and OTT viewership numbers for weeks 46 and 47 of 2019.
