HIT OR FLOP: Shakti, Rising Star 2, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, Tashan-E-Ishq?

Week 7 (February 10-16) threw up a number of unexpected results on the leader board. To begin with, Colors’ Shakti- Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki, which has been a consistent performer for several weeks now, dropped significantly this time -- the family drama went from a cool No. 4 to 10.

We wonder what led to such a drastic fall. Shakti... has been one of the Top 5 shows for a while.

The second season of Rising Star made an entry into Top 10 in its first week of going on-air. However, its ratings didn’t impress post that. Now, in Week 7, the talent hunt registered an improved performance and acquired the 6th spot.

The week in question also brought smiles to the faces of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein makers. For, the family dram soared from 9th to the 5thposition.

Doesn’t come as a surprise since the producer behind the show – Ekta Kapoor – knows the tricks of the trade well.

Making a surprise entry to the Top 10 is Colors show, Tashan-E-Ishq. The daily soap clinched the 4th spot. It will be interesting to see if this show turns out to be a one-time wonder or manages to be a staple on this list.

No prizes for guessing that Kundali Bhagya, Kumkum Bhagya and Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah were the Top 3 shows in Week 7 too. Talk about a loyal fan following.

Super Dancer 2 which has Shilpa Shetty, Geeta Kapur and Anurag Basu as judges slipped by two positions. Sonakshi Sinha was the guest in the week in question. But looks like her appearance didn’t help the show’s ratings.
