Satyamev Jayate TRP: Is Aamir Khan’s show a hit or a flop?

The same TVR data has given rise to conflicting analyses

Satyamev Jayate, Aamir Khan’s much-awaited television debut, has created an impact on several levels with even apathetic politicians commenting on the show. However, when it comes to the show’s ratings, we’ve been hearing contradictory reports. While a few claim it has done very well indeed, others have run it down. Ironically, both sides have based these theories on the same data.

According to the TAM data released by the channel, the first episode of Satyamev Jayate managed to garner just 3.02 TVRs on Star Plus, making it the 12th most-watched show on a Hindi channel for the week ending May 12. Compare this to the fact that other celeb-hosted shows have opened with much higher ratings – especially Kaun Banega Crorepati season 5 (5.24), Just Dance (3.68) and Bigg Boss 5 (4.25). Sure looks like Aamir doesn’t have the same draw as his fellow B-towners, huh? That’s when we asked ourselves, how is that possible? We’ve got innumerable comments about the show from viewers outside India too, plus people everywhere are talking about it. How is it possible that Satyamev Jayate even became a trending topic on Twitter if it has not done even moderately well, TVR-wise?

But tilt your head just a bit and look again. The TVR mentioned above is only for Star Plus. You’ll surely recall that Satyamev Jayate was telecast simultaneously on multiple channels on the Star network and on Doordarshan. It’s simple math that this simulcast also divided the viewers, automatically bringing down the TVR of Star Plus. In which case, what is the overall rating for the show? If you include all the channels (even Doordarshan), Satyamev Jayate has garnered 4.27 TVRs. Now that’s not so bad, is it? It’s even higher than Just Dance and Bigg Boss 5! Of course it’s not as high as KBC, but hey, SJ is not a game show. In fact for an issue-based show that doesn’t air on prime time, it’s done incredibly well.

Wethink Aamir should give himself a pat on the back, for he has once again done the impossible. He’s put together a show that doesn’t follow established trends – tempting viewers with the chance to win obscene amounts of money, or getting to know more about their fave celebrities. He talks about social issues, tries to involve citizens in social change and yet interests enough viewers to keep advertisers happy. Not a mean feat at all. Aamir, take a bow.

  • Kanupriya Sawhney

    Bakwaaaaas…..program.

  • Rajiv

    Bahut he faltu programe hain SJ. aamir doing nothing new in this serial. Sony’s crime petrol already showing all these incident earlier. But in that program, these incident raised by Low profile actor Mr. Anup soni. dats why it was not considered. But These old news shown by aamir khan, so that everybody showing concern on that. It is completely a double standard showing by audience and new maker both.

    Aamir just showing dat he is doing different from other actor host. He is just raising up his popularity and money.

  • priyanka

    where commen things are been showed through these srial i dont think that these will bring any certine changes to peoples mentelety these is to just fill personal pokets and to show some that what salman srk didnt did i have done it serial ki trp badane ke liya abhe talak kitno ko naya mila

    • sharan

      Whatever may be the reason, he his doing right thing, responsible thing. try to appreciate.

  • Jawad

    I think star plus already telecasted AAPKI KACHERI KIRAN KE SAATH, they made more TVRs since the Kiran was nice lawyer and she sorts out the problem easily. AAMIR Khan just listens to issue and he doesn’t sort it out, finally in the end he says “WE DON’T HOLD ANY RIGHTS AS LIKE COURT, ALL THE BEST”
    Silly and lame

  • Lipan

    This is a heart touching programme.

  • Rahul

    The best show ever. No doubt about that. N d people who r commenting tht aamir is doing this for money, they come under that category of people who don’t want the changes in their society, they want pure(?), in my words, fake entertainment, which srk provides them. God help such people. Go aamir, we are with u n we understand wht u r dng for this society.

  • sudhir

    Amir ji duniya me jo ho raha hai vo bilkul sahi nahi ho raha hai par kya kare kuch majboori aisi hai ki, duniya me rahene ka man nahi karta aur to apne hi kuch aisa karte hai ki majbooran galat ya phir people and kanoon ise crime kehata hai.kya batau aap ko mere duinya me kya ho raha hai aur mai kaise jee raha hu.

  • sharan

    Its really great. it shows your responsibility towards the nation by choosing the this program instead of entertainment programs. Its very difficult to reach the words of common man to the nation. but u can do that. your the role model to all other great people who just care about themselves. Finally you are the hero for heros amir…. hats of to u

  • mohammad bhayat

    amir khan islam mjhab ke najdik kisi aurat ko pehli baar ladki ho to vo bahoot hi ba barkat he isko maat maro

  • anu anu

    Thanks for this program Mr Amir. This is the good program but the thing is that the people whom comes with the problem had faced problems which they discuss with u and whole media channels but name of the person should also be disclosed so that others may not face the same problem in future. I can even say that this has been become a normal case to the court as every day they receive number of cases on child abuse and so on, my question is that what is the action is taken on this, only taking interviews sharing the views will just not make any difference even we share to our friends and family members but there is not use of this where we wont get any results on this.

  • Tajuddin mohal

    Really it is very nice programme. I cosidered that Amir is a great person and my earnest request is that is to be done continiously in future to encourage the other persons. If anyone done this type programme for earn money, it is not a problem because our society is largely influences for such programmes.

  • Lina Ghosh

    Amir has done all of us very proud,by Challenging Social evils,and has taken the task of facing respected authorities
    in possible “changes to the Law”.Be it Sexual abuse of helpless Children,Dowry,place of Indian Widows in the family and more to come!

    India is the shining example of a Civilised,harmonious democracy,and we need Amir to take the Lead in changing our corrupt practices.

  • sunny

    amer khan very good

  • Hashmat Ara Khan

    Amir u r doing extremely good deeds by showing all the weak areas of our country and allowing us to actually think about those delicate and most important areas of our life which are left unnoticed or ignored which are deterioting our nation like termites. I am a Msc-chemistry post gratuate girl from a very poor family but i took a stand to study on my own by earning and learning ways. And now i have decided that i will marry on my own without giving dowry that too in a descent and very simple way and i will stick to your words that marriage must be like agarbatti whos smell must be remain till the end of the life. Its a pleasure to share my views to all the girls of my country.

    • Mahesh

      Hashmat ara khan ji.., namastey dont think u r poor…. Poor not lies in money … Poor is people who r not having affection towards other….
      Your thouts are really awesome…

    “Great people always think differently and do things differently”

  • synlein

    Its not that great. It is very much similar to Rakhi sawant show. Also please don’t give credit to Amir b’cos it is director & person who has conceptualize it & the producer should get the credit. Amir is 4cr for this. For him it is just money. We should give credit to people who are investing money on this show.

    • Saurabh

      @synlein , this show better than IPL, IPL is total fixed they are making money & all, but this show making a awareness, this is does not mean who’s produce this show ? who’s direct this show? this show making for us for awareness

      really Aamir khan is doing a great job, salute itttttt…..
