The quote of original programming ended last week as owing to the fact that there are no shoots going on during this lockdown period, channels are currently airing reruns of previous shows and repeats of on-going ones.
But the channel ratings that have come in are indeed record-breaking, to say the least. The overall consumption of TV viewing has shot astronomically and males have entered the demographic of consuming more television time than females.
Here are the Top 5 channels with their numbers as per 1000s-
On the 5th spot is Dangal TV. Usually not even in the contention with its original programming, the reruns and other popular shows being on-air on this channel have led to the channel attain big numbers fetching with 269 impressions.
Getting the 4th spot well and good is Star Plus and this channel had a mixed bag of currently running shows along with other shows that went off-air. The channel grabbed 312 impressions.
Sony TV has been one of the first channels to adapt to the stop of orignal programming and had some of its previously hit shows coming back on-air. With 364 impressions, it gets the 3rd spot.
Colors TV just managed to have an edge over Sony TV and is on the 2nd spot with 373 impressions.
Even when original programming is going on, the reruns of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah that goes on almost throughout the entire day fetches decent numbers. However now, with no other fresh content, the reruns of the show throughout the day and other shows on their allotted time slots have resulted in humongous numbers for Sab TV as it tops the charts with a clean sweep of 541 impressions.
