Republic TV leads English News as genre ratings increase a bit

BENGALURU: The Arnab Goswami led Republic TV continued its supremacy over the English News genre in week 39 of 2017 (Saturday, 23 September 2017 to Friday, 29 September 2017). The channel has been topping Broadcast Audience Research Council of India (BARC) weekly lists of top 10 English News channels All India (U+R) : NCCS AB : Males 22+ Individuals right from the very first week of its launch on 6 May 2017 (week 19 of 2017). The Times Group flagship English News channel Times Now, which had what seemed an unassailable first rank in the genre, was replaced by Republic TV. The combined ratings of the top 5 English News channels in week 39 of 2017 increased to 2.888 million weekly impressions as compared to the 2.716 million weekly ratings in week 38. All the top five channels in week 39 retained their week 38 ranks and places, with four of the five scoring higher ratings as compared to the previous week. Only NDTV 24 x 7 had slightly lower ratings in week 39 as compared to week 38.

In week 39 of 2017, Republic TV viewership increased to 0.982 million weekly impressions from 0.902 million weekly impressions in week 38. Times Now saw its weekly impressions in week 39 increase to 0.857 million as compared to 0.791 million in the previous week and was ranked second in the list. CNN News 18 was ranked third in week 39 with 0.368 million weekly impressions, higher as compared the 0.347 million weekly impressions in week 38.

India Today Television also retained rank four with 0.353 million weekly impressions in week 39 of 2017 as compared to 0.343 million weekly impressions in week 38. NDTV 24 x 7 completed the quintet with 0.328 million weekly impressions in week 39 as compared to 0.331 million weekly impressions in week 38. In week 38, NDTV 24 x 7 had re-entered at fifth place in the top 5 English News genre list replacing BBC World News.

In the meantime, both the genre toppers - Republic TV and Times Now continued their on-air muscle flexing on their respective channels just after BARC ratings were released today after 1100 hours. Each once again showed different interpretations of BARC data to its genre leadership in terms of viewership, while accusing the other of mis-practice and unfairness. Detailed BARC data is generally released to paid subscribers at 1100 hours on Thursday and limited data that has been used to make this report to the public at 1300 hours. Since Thursday 5 October 2017 was a public holiday, the data was released one day later on 6 October 2017.

Highest rated Hindi GEC primetime programmes in rural India

[Image: balvir.jpg?itok=jn_qKd1-]

BENGALURU: In an earlier paper, we have discussed the highest rated Hindi GEC programmes in the Hindi Speaking Markets (HSM) – this included the urban and rural HSM markets, based on the weekly viewership ratings of the top 5 primetime programmes published by Broadcast Audience Research Council of Indi (BARC) during the first 39 weeks of 2017.

It must be noted that the ratings (impressions) mentioned for the programmes in this paper may not represent the actual ratings during the first 39 weeks of programmes. The ratings in the paper are a sum of the ratings garnered by a programme only when it has appeared in BARC’s top 5 programmes list. Hence the actual ratings could be higher.

As is common knowledge, rural viewership preferences are different from urban, BARC’s data for the top 5 Hindi GEC primetime (1830 to 2130 hours) NCCS HSM (U+R): 2+ individuals is not homogenous across markets. There is lumpiness, preferences vary within the urban as well rural audiences depending upon geography. While in the overall HSM markets Kumkum Bhagya on Zee TV was the most watched programme during the first 39 weeks of 2017, followed by Naagin 2 on Colors, rural HSM markets preferred the Supernatural to the family drama – Naagin 2 was the most watched programme in the Hindi HSM rural market during the 28 weeks it was there in the top 5 primetime programmes in the HSM rural market list in the first 39 weeks of 2017. The programme scored 184.395 million impressions during the 28 weeks in the top 5 programmes in the rural market list.

Nagin 2 was followed by the Akshay Kumar – Ashwini Yardi – Meenakshi Sagar produced family drama Jamai Raja on Zee Anmol as the second watched programme during the 27 weeks it was present in the top 5 programmes in the rural market list with a score of 165.376 million impressions in the first 39 weeks of 2017.

Optimystix Entertainment’s children’s Superhero series Baal Veer scored the third highest ratings of 162.266 million impressions during the 31 weeks it was in the top 5 programmes list in the first 39 weeks of 2017. The show earned these ratings on Sony Pictures Network India Private Limited (SPN) women focused Hindi GEC Sony Pal. Also on Sony Pal was the sitcom Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma at fourth place with 102.036 million impressions during the 20 of the first 39 weeks of 2017 that it was on the top five programmes list.

Zee TV’s Balaji Telfilms Limited produced KumkumBhagya was the fifth most watched programme with 88.325 million impressions during the 17 of the first 39 weeks of 2017 when it was in the top 5 HSM – rural market list. Please refer to the figure below.

Unlike their urban brethren, rural India does not prefer reality television if one were to go by BARC data for top 5 primetime programmes in the HSM rural market.

Soaps include all sub-genres such as family drama, comedy drama, sitcoms, mythology drama, supernatural drama. Reality includes music, dance, shows such as Fear Factor, Kaun Banega Crorepati, Bigg Boss, etc. Comedy includes shows such as The Kapil Sharma show, etc., Awards means award shows such as Star Screen Awards.

Republic TV tops once again as genre ratings fall

BENGALURU: Republic TV juggernaut continued its relentless dominance of the Indian English News genre according to Broadcast Audience Research Council of India (BARC) weekly viewership for week 40 of 2017 (Saturday, 30 September 2017 to Friday, 6 October 2017). The Arnab Goswami led channel has been leading the genre right from its launch 22 weeks ago in week 19 of 2017.

However, BARC data for top 5 English News channels (All India (U+R) : NCCS AB : Males 22+ Individuals) reveals that the combined viewership of the top 5 channels of the genre plunged to lowest ever since week 22 of 2017. Also, Republic TV’s ratings in week 40 of 2017 were the lowest ever since its commencement. It may be noted that week 21 ratings have not been considered in this paper, because the other channels supported by the News Broadcasting Association had stripped their BARC audio watermarks to disallow viewership measurement in protest against what they termed as unfair practices by Republic TV. The errant channels returned to the BARC fold in week 22 of 2017.

Republic TV with 840,000 weekly impressions (Sums) for week 40 of 2017 led the genre, followed by the channel it had disposed from numero uno position when it was launched – The Times Group’s flagship English News channel Times Now that stood at second place with 717,000 weekly impressions (Sums). The previous lowest viewership ratings of Republic TV was in weeks 25 and 27 of 2017 – 868,000 weekly impressions (Sums).

The Prannoy and Radhika Roy led NDTV 24 x 7 climbed to third place in the genre with 347,000 weekly impressions (Sums) in week 40 from fifth rank in week 39 when it had garnered 328,000 weekly impressions (Sums).

NDTV 24x7 was followed by India Today Television at fourth place in week 40 of 2017 with 338,000 weekly impressions (Sums). In week 39 also the channel was ranked fourth with 353,000 weekly impressions (Sums). CNN News 18 dropped two ranks to fifth place in week 40 of 2017 with 244,000 weekly impressions (Sums). The channel had scored 368,000 weekly impressions (Sums) in week 39.

Overall, the Indian English News genre lost viewership in week 40 of 2017 – the combined ratings of the top 5 channels was 2,486,000 weekly impressions the lowest since week 22 of 2017 when the combined ratings of the top 5 channels was 2,463,000 weekly impressions. In week 39, the combined viewership of the top 5 English News channels was 2,888,000 weekly impressions. Please refer to the figure below for the combined ratings of the top 5 English News channels for weeks 1 to 40 of 2017.
