Amitabh Bachchan Continues To Reign, Kaun Banega Crorepati Is Still No.1!

Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati continues to be the most-watched show on Indian television. The iconic quiz show has managed to retain the No.1 position ever since it premiered on August 28.

Hats off to Bachchan for upholding the viewers’ interest levels for 4 weeks on the trot. This is really champion stuff.

Week 39 (September 23-29) was a memorable one for the team as the show found its first crorepati, Anamika Majumdar. The lady, a social worker from Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, reached the jackpot Rs 7 crore question, however decided to quit the proceedings and took home Rs 1 crore.

Furthermore, Kumkum Bhagya and Kundali Bhagya swapped positions this week. While the former dropped to 3, the latter moved up a notch and stood at the second spot.

Khatron Ke Khiladi stayed put at No. 4. Up next, Dance Plus 3 registered a substantial improvement in its performance.

The dance reality show, which till now was scraping the bottom of the barrel acquired the 5th spot. The improved ratings can be credited to the fact that it was Dance Plus 3’s finale episode.

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah too showcased an upswing in its ratings. We assume, the news of Daya Ben’s (Disha Vakani) temporary exit from the show (she is out on maternity leave and had a baby shower recently) contributed to the result.

These are the last few days on the show before the track changes. It will be interesting to see how the show fares in Daya Ben’s absence.

While Dance Plus and Taarak Mehta ascended, Shakti- Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki dipped. You may recall, it was only last week that the family drama scored a spot in the Top 5. Its performance has been fluctuating for weeks now.
