Salman Khan, Big B Lose Grip On Television; This New Serial Is At The Top Today
“Bigg Boss” or “Kaun Banega Crorepati” hosted by Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan respectively has started losing their grip on the audience. Even though these shows still are very much popular, the new generation is slowly switching over to the latest soaps such as Kundali Bhagya or Chhoti Sardarni.
Of course, the TRP keeps on going up and down but the fact that both these reality shows have failed to come in the top 5 for the last few weeks indicates that the audience prefers dramas and stories more nowadays.
Kundali Bhagya And Chhoti Sardarni Battle For Top 2 Positions
Last week Chhoti Sardarni serial took a big leap as the serial with the highest TRP replacing Kundali Bhagya which went down to the second position. But Kundali Bhagya is now back to first position this week with Chhoti Sardarni at the second.
Incidentally, there is no change of position for the third spot as “Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah” continues to remain stable at no.3. The longest-running television show in the history of Indian television is still going great guns despite the absence of Disha Vakani aka Dayaben who was a major highlight of the show. Disha took maternity leave from the show a couple of years ago and is yet to make a comeback.
In the fourth position, this week is “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” which is also one of the longest-running serials. Made popular by Karan Malhotra and Hina Khan in the lead at the beginning currently, Kartik and Naira played by Mohsin Khan and Shivangi Joshi are doing an equally great job.
On the fifth spot is “Kumkum Bhagya” which has replaced “The Kapil Sharma Show”. Last week the same spot was grabbed by Kapil Sharma’s reality show. However, “Kumkum Bhagya” is back in the top 5.
This week’s TRP analysis indicates that despite having big names like Salman, Amitabh Bachchan, and Kapil Sharma as hosts, the reality shows have failed to attract viewership. Rather typical, drama soaps are doing very well on TRP charts.
