Ekta Kapoor has brought Nagiin 3 back in Week 50 of 2018 to where it belonged- the numero uno slot. But the Queen of Soaps still has to burn some more midnight oil on Kumkum Bhagya which fails to recover its No 3 slot that it occupied for a long time (Kumkum Bhagya remains on No 4) and her ambitious Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 which still fails to enter the Top Ten List.
What is amazing is that the news of the exit of Surbhi Chandna from Ishqbaaaz has still not got it into the coveted group. Does that imply that last days in Ishqbaaaz were not seen by the public to a large extent? However, her exit created a big noise on social media. This only means that today a lot of people are watching Tv shows online either on Apps or YouTube--- and not on the idiot box. Food for thought. So perhaps, Ekta need not worry so much.
However, the Top Ten List is a discussion in every production house on Thursdays. Which is exactly why we move on to tell you that the two who should be celebrating are the makers of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and Indian Idol. The former moved from 8 to 5 in Week 50, while the latter from 9 to 6.
We had serious doubts about Guddan Tumse Naa Ho Payega when we were penning the Week 48 list. In the week after that, it held on grimly to its 10th spot. But now it is out. Shayyad, Guddan se sachmuch nahi ho paaya.
Kulfi Kumarr Bajewala and Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah have remained rock steady over the last 2 weeks on 3 and 7 respectively.
