Mouni Roy and Arjun Bijlani's "Naagin" continues to rule the Television Rating Points (TRPs) with 4.8 points in week 17 (April 23 to April 29) of 2016, according to the data released by Broadcast Audience Research Council India, the television audience measurement agency.
Way behind "Naagin" was "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein," which secured the second spot with 3.3 TRPs. Post-leap, the storyline of the show along with the several hit-and-miss moments between Raman (Karan Patel) and Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi), have been keeping the viewers glued to their TV sets. The third spot in week 17 was secured by "Saath Nibhaana Saathiya" with 3.1 points.
The grand opening weekend episodes of much-awaited comedy show "The Kapil Sharma Show" scored 3 TRPs, which is much higher than the other daily soaps.
Unfortunately, "Kumkum Bhagya," which had been in the second slot for several weeks, slipped to fifth position with 2.8 TRPs. With the constant drop in its rating, it appears like the never ending track of exposing Tanu (Leena Jumani) is affecting the show's ratings.
While long running show "Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai" scored 2.5 points, "Kasam," which is the fairly a new show, managed to get 2.4.
"Diya Aur Baati Hum" received 1.9 points while "Sasural Simar Ka" and "Comedy Nights Bachao" got 1.8 and 1.7 points, respectively. "Balika Vadhu," which recently took a generation leap and introduced new cast, was at par with "Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani." Both the shows scored 1.6 TRPs.
As for the channels, Star Plus was once again at the top followed by Colors TV, Sony Pal, Zee TV, Star Utsav, Life OK, Zee Anmol, Rishtey, SAB TV and Sony Entertainment Television. 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.
