Top 5 TV Shows on Indian Television in September 2012

Posted by on September 25, 2012 - (0)

Mahadev on Life OK was biggest surprise this month which jumped 7 positions to settle at Number 3 slot in daily shows. In weekend shows DID Superkids baged the number 1 slot after kicking KBC 2012 out to number 2 slots. KBS returned in 2012 with a bang and topped in the TVR ratings surpassing every other show. But, it could not hold on to it position even for another weeks. I think the show and AB both have gone old and it requires much required new lease of Life with some better masala.

Let us have a look at some of the top shows with their TVR ratings –
Diya Aur Baati Hum – 5.3
Balika Vadhu – 4.7
Mahadev – 3.9
Bade Achche Lagte Hain – 3.9
Saathiya – 3.6

The ratings for weekend shows are as follows –
DID Superkids – 4.6
KBC 2012 – 4.3
CID – 3.4
Jhalak Dikhhla Ja – 3.2
Crime Patrol – 3.1

Diya Aur Baati Hum is continuously holding to the top position week after week and the 2nd position holder Balika Vadhu is nowhere near it. This show is undisputed king since its launch and is holding up to its charm. With top of the class acting, down to earth people, good story line and lots of drama, the show is not going to diminish any where soon if the main leads hold on to their roles.

Star Plus and Colors are leading with equal number of popular shows right now with them but things are going to change with Big Boss comming soon with which Colors will have an edge over others.

Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 2012 Finals

Posted by on September 25, 2012 - (0)

Who do you think will be the winner of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa in the finals? The dance reality show is all set for the finals as all four contestants are finalized. All the fans of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa are eagerly waiting for the finals. Who would take the trophy, well, it is just 6 days to know that.

In my opinion Isha Sharvani is the hot favorite. She has been consistently doing well and getting lots of accloads from the judges. Not to mention the nearly 100% score they bagged every week. She is a professional acrobat trainer and an actor which establishes her as a great potential winner.

Rithvik Dhanjani is the closest competitor with good looks and great body. He is also very consistent and best in the male dancers. Lot of times he out shadowed the choreographer with his dancing.

Rashmi Sandhu, a popular TV actress and a trained classical dancer better known as Tapasya from Uttaran is also a good dancer but lacks winner materials.

Gurmeet Chaudhary. a television actor, married yet very popular with girls. He is well known for his role of Lord Rama in Ramayan. He is very hard working and is a good dancer.

Now only time will tell as to who will be the winner. In your opinion, who do you think will walk away with the trophy?

Satyamev Jayate – Not just any Another TV Show

Posted by on May 11, 2012 - (0)

Yes, the effects of the much awaited and widely watched Satyamev Jayate is already visible on the ground. Just 3 days after Aamir Khan’s show on TV Satyamev Jayate was aired that included highly sensitive topic of female feticide, Madhya Pradesh Government agency has suspended licenses on Medical Termination of Pregnancy centers as they defaulted to submit the reports as required. Near to 65 licenses were cancelled.

These suspensions are supposed to be revoked if these MTP centers might be able to submit their updated prescribed forms by 7th May 2012.

Aamir Khan also met Ashok Gehlot, the Rajasthan Chief Minister as he promised on TV. He appealed to the CM to take actions against the old cases of female foeticide cases in the state in a fast track court as per the 7 year old sting operation that exposed these cases in Rajashthan but for which actions were not taken.

On a hilarious front, Rakhi Sawant accused Aamir Khan for stealing concept of “Satyamev Jayate”, which according to her is based on her show “Rakhi Ka Insaaf” which was shifted to late night slot because of the type of content it had.

Will Aamir Khan’s TV show could replace the Sunday morning slot long back dominated by Mahabharata and Ramayana aired on DD long back is yet to be seen. The amount of response that the pilot episode is getting is more than expected and is for good. Could this show unite India against the social evils as a cricket match does in terms of entertainment is yet to be seen. Best of luck Aamir Khan and do not listen to the critics, whole nation is with you.

Posted by on October 27, 2009 - (4)

Rajesh Khanna Bigg Boss 3

The veteran actor is going to enter Bigg Boss 3 as a wild card entry.

Rajesh Khanna recently won Lifetime Achievement Award at IIFA 2009 held at Bangkok. He will soon be entering the house of Bigg Boss 3. He will be entering the house as wild card entry in next 2-3 weeks. Colors approached him before the launch of the show but he denied being part of it as he wanted to drink inside the house.

Now, he has changed his mind. He is ready to be part of the show and give up drinking for the period. He will be paid the highest amount as the participation fees among all contestants.

After the exit of KRK, Rajesh Khanna’s entry would again boost the sinking TRP rating for the show. It will be quiet interesting how Original Super Star will interact with the current Super Star.

Do Reality T.V Show Give Cruel Entertainment?

Posted by on February 20, 2009 - (3)

Entertainment is what TV is all about. The producers of television programs like to entertain their audience to the best extent possible, even if it means indulging in cruel entertainment. This is exactly what TV reality shows are doing. Many of the contestants participating in it are fed up with the programs as they have to grow through grueling ordeal. Let us understand these phenomena better?

Viewers like to see the contestants in reality shows go through oppressive conditions and situations. Programmers are keen to satisfy such demands of the public, even if it means the contestants are at great risk.

The celebrities go through this ordeal to “prove their humanity” to the public according to The Times Columnist Caitlin Moran.

How Do T.V Reality Show Give Cruel Entertainment?

  • Television producers ask celebrities to indulge in activities or be in situations that give cheap thrills. For example, Natalie Appleton quit the program “I,m a Celebrity – Get me Out of Here(UK) after she had to plunge into the glass tanks that contained live animals and putrid waste.
  • Brian Harvey ex-E17 singer sunk his teeth into pies that were filled with insects.
  • Danniella Westbrook, actress, in the reality show I’m a Celebrity (UK) claimed that her participation in the show in 2003 was affecting her recovery from drug addiction.
  • Emma Greenwood contestant on reality show Big Brother (UK) was asked to spy on her fellow contestants from a hidden bedsit.
  • Contestants also dress up to the extent of being naked. Reality shows have been conducted concerning naked beauty pageant.
  • These programs prey on those who suffer from mental health problems and depression.
  • Some times a contestant is asked to drop his pants in public by a security guard at a reputed television house.
  • Contestants are subjected to humiliation.
  • Bullying of the contestants is something enjoyed by viewers.
  • Contestants who do not perform well in auditions are humiliated in front of the viewers. It is psychological trauma for the participant to undergo such open criticism.

From these above observations, it is quite evident that reality shows are entertainment in cruel form. Many viewers are beginning to dislike such programs, although they do attract a large audience.
