Sony Tv Data
It’s evident that between Week 34 and 35 (when KBC premiered), the ratings of Sony soared. What’s more is that the show’s performance only gets better week after week.
Goes without saying, Kaun Banega Crorepati continued its winning run and was the most-watched show on TV in Week 37 (September 9-15).
Zee TV’s Kumkum Bhagya and Khatron Ke Khiladi exchanged positions this time and were at No. 2 and 3 respectively. We wouldn’t be surprised if the latter comes back at the second place next week since it will include the ratings of the finale.
