Zee TV's "Kumkum Bhagya" has topped the Television Rating Points (TRPs) in week 32 (Aug.6 to Aug.12) of 2016. According to the data released by Broadcast Audience Research Council India, the television audience measurement agency, Abhi-Pragya's show scored 3.3 points. With this, it appears like the ongoing track, where Abhi (Shabir Ahluwalia) has lost his memory and Pragya (Sriti Jha) has returned to her old de-glam look, has been keeping the audience enthralled.

The second in the list of top scorers was fairly new show "Brahmarakshas- Jaag Utha Shaitaan," which has been impressing the audience with its supernatural tracks.

"The Kapil Sharma Show," with its brilliant comedy has been garnering overwhelming responses from the audience. While Kapil Sharma's show scored 2.8 points and took the third spot in the list of top scorers in week 32, it was the top show under the non-fiction category.

Comedy show "Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah," which recently competed 2000 episodes, and "Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai" scored 2.8 points as well, Indian Forums reported.

A little behind the top five shows was "Shakti - Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki," which scored 2.7 points and took the sixth slot. The show has witnessed a tremendous jump in its ratings ever since it was revealed to the viewers that the show's lead character (played by Rubina Dilaik) is a transgender. Going by the ratings, it appears like the viewers are gradually opening up to new and unusual concepts.

Unfortunaly, "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein," which had been enjoying high TRP ratings since the past several weeks, slipped to the seventh position with 2.6 points. Despite, the new twists and turns in the storyline, it appears like the viewers are disappointed with the never ending troubles of the lead pair Raman (Karan Patel) and Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi).

The eighth position was grabbed by "Udann" (2.5 points), which recently introduced a leap in its storyline. "Diya Aur Baati Hum," which is nearing its end, managed to take the ninth slot.

Surprisingly, "Saath Nibhaana Saathiya," which had always been at the second or third spot, has drastically slipped down to 10th position with 2.3 points. With new shows grabbing the attention, there's a desperate need for older shows to work on their plot and pull viewership.

TRP is a tool to measure viewers' preferred programmes and the popularity of a particular channel based on data collected from a particular geography and demography.
