All thanks to Kaun Banega Crorepati 9 and Super Dancer, Sony Entertainment Television has a lot to celebrate about. It is the No 1 channel at the moment this week with Amitabh Bachchan ruling the roost, giving the other fictional shows from the channel a run for their money. The show has been clocking in TRPs above the range of 3, with the episode featuring winner Anamika Majumdar, earning a TRP of 4 and 3.9 respectively. People really seem to have taken a liking for the knowledge based quiz show, coupled with the excitement to earn money with every right answer.
This season, the highlight of the show is its emphasis on India’s actual heroes. Amitabh has since the beginning of the show this year, welcomed the likes of Harmanpreet Kaur, Mithali Raj, winners of the Indian Women’s Cricket Team and Smriti Mandhana, on the programme. Apart from them, PV Sindhu and Anand Kumar of Super 30 (an initiative, which helps students from underprivileged backgrounds prepare for the IITs). Additionally, the people who’ve come on the show have been very socially conscious and want to do something better for the society with the money earned. People have thus taken a liking for the positive content being shown on the show.
The show has completely outrun other dailies like Naamkarann, Kumkum Bhagya, Shani and even Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss on Colors and Akshay Kumar’s The Great Indian Laughter Challenge on Star Plus in its TRP race. Bigg Boss 11 started with a bang and the show got Colors a rating of 2.9 for the inaugural episode. With the urban market taking an instant liking for the show, looks like KBC is going to be on the top of the TRP charts for quite sometime.
