Sony Pal rocked the charts here thanks to Balveer and Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chasmah. Zee Anmol, STAR Utsav, Rishtey, Colors, STAR Plus, Zee TV, Life Ok, Big Magic and Sony Entertainment Television took the spots in order.

Sony Pal’s Baalveer, Rishtey’s Naagin, Colors’ Naagin – Season 2, Sony Pal’s Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah and STAR Utsav’s Saath Nibhaana Saathiya took the top five positions.
