Making a roaring entry into the Top 10 -- for the second time – was Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss, Season 10. The first time it acquired a spot in the coveted list was when it premiered in October last year. Now, it’s the reality show’s grand premiere that found a place in the leader board. In Week 5, it stood at No. 2.

The curiosity as to who among Manveer Gurjar, Bani Judge, Lopamudra Raut or Manu Punjabi will be declared the winner, kept the audiences hooked. However, this good news has come too late in the day for Colors and they shouldn’t be proud of it. This Season was extremely dismal as far as viewership is concerned.

In fact, Season 9 too was drab. Seems the controversial reality show has run its course.

Colors show Udaan, which had its makers celebrating in Week 4 owing to an increased viewership, dropped by 4 positions and was at No.9. The ongoing track of Kamal Narayan (Sai Ballal) torturing Suraj (Vijayendra Kumeria) and Chakor (Meera Deosthale) seems to have plateaued. At this point, the makers should look at introducing an interesting twist.
