Bigg Boss 11 TRP ratings beats Kaun Banega Crorepati: Shilpa Shetty’s Dance Champions 2 is a surprise!
Besides the big screen, there are only few Bollywood superstars to find the same stature of success on TV. And right now Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan are the two. The third quarter of the year is witnessing top Bollywood stars locking horns with their respective TV shows.
It probably happens once in a blue moon when you see all the Bollywood biggies coming together at the same time. Big B’s game show Kaun Banega Crorepati 9 went on the air, following this, came Salman’s Bigg Boss 11. While Akshay Kumar came back to TV as the super judge of The Great Indian Laughter Challenge.
Now as all these biggies are locking horns, it’s obvious to expect a TRP battle. So who has gone over whom in this competition is as follows.
Highest TRP Ratings of Indian TV Shows 2017
1. Bigg Boss 11
TRP ratings of premiere episode – 2.9
Probably it won’t be exaggerating anyway to state that Salman is a man with the Midas touch. As the Bhaijaan’s 11th edition has returned with a bang! The first episode of Bigg Boss 11 scored 2.9 at the TRP chart surpassing Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati (2.6).
Given the genre, with another actor, the controversial show would have ended up standing below 1 point. However, in weekdays Bigg Boss 11 TRP ratings score around 1.6 to 1.9.
Family audiences tend to ignore watching it due to late timing and controversial content. In addition, a large number of people watch the show for the Tiger Zinda Hai actor. And since he appears in weekends only, they skip weekdays episodes.
2. Kaun Banega Crorepati 9
TRP ratings of premiere episode – 2.6
Seriously, Amitabh Bachchan should write a book on how to maintain stardom for 5 long decades. The Shahenshah of Bollywood turned 75 recently, yet he’s the leading one. Because, Big B hosted cult game show Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 is the ruling among the TV audiences.
The first episode got a TRP of 2.6 and since then the show has only soared up. The reasons are probably its timing or the engaging subject. Hence, though the TRP ratings of KBC’s premiere episode were behind Bigg Boss 11 TRP points, it’s way ahead of Salman Khan’s show in weekdays.
While there are many occasions when the TRP ratings of KBC 9 went to 4 and 3.9 points that are simply mind-boggling.
3. Super Dancer 2
TRP ratings of premiere episode – 2.3
Nowadays a great number of dance shows try their hand. And with Shilpa Shetty’s Dance Champions, there’s a huge TRP battle. The opening episode gathered a TRP point of 2.3 – that’s humongous considering no such big star like Hrithik Roshan is there.
The kids are extremely talented and it is a pure family show. Last year was a huge success, seems like this season is showing the same promise.
4. Great Indian Laughter Challenge 5
TRP ratings of premiere episode – 1.1
Akshay Kumar made a comeback on TV after a long time and we were damn excited. The first season was a cult and gave us talents like Kapil Sharma, Ehsaan Qureshi and Sunil Pal.
However, the 5th season of Great Indian Laughter Challenge as of yet is disappointing. The TRP ratings of the premiere episode were too low (1.1), also much below Dance Champions (2.3).
Now considering the genre, we only hope that it’ll show some growth in future.
