BARC’s data for week 19 (Saturday, 9th May 2020 to Friday, 15th May 2020) was released and it reveals the most viewed TV channels and shows for the period.
As per the data, Enterr10 TV’s Hindi GEC Dangal has topped the list of top 10 channels across genres for week 19 of 2020. The data says that the channel had around 11,13,782 weekly impressions that put it on the number one position. Star Plus took the second positing in the Hindi GEC genre with 8,65,020 weekly impressions.
DD National enjoyed a much higher position on the list in the previous weeks with the re-run of Ramayan & Mahabharat but have dropped to the 6th position with 5,06,943 impressions. It may seem that the re-run of these old mythological shows was unable to ensure that the channel, both DD Bharti & DD national, remains the viewer’s favorite.
If we look at the top 10 channels which fall under the category of paid platforms, Star Plus was seen topping the list with 8,59,741 weekly impressions. Whereas Dangal was seen taking the 9th position as per the data shared by BARC.
However, DD Bharati‘s show Mahabharat remained the most viewed program in the Hindi GEC genre across all platforms with 22907 impressions. The lead was followed by DD National‘s Shri Krishna which had 22,821 weekly impressions.
Dangal‘s show Baba Aiso Var Dhundo stood at the third position with 15,981 weekly views along with Start Plus‘ Mahabharat & Dangal‘s Mahima Shanidev Ki on the 4th & 5th position respectively.
