This is surely a woohoo moment for Kapil and gang raking a TRP of 3.0 as compared to Bajirao Mastani's 2.4
When Kapil Sharma decided to come out with The Kapil Sharma Show on April 23, fans were super thrilled. In a few days, Colors announced that it would telecast Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Bajirao Mastani on the same date at the same time slot.
Observers have been waiting for the TRPs with waited breath since two weeks. Today, the results are out. It got a TRP of 3.0 in the urban sector and 2.8 in the rural taking it to 5.8 in total. On the other hand, Bajirao Mastani got a TRP of 2.4 in the urban sector. It’s rural ratings are not available so far. Clearly, Kapil Sharma and team have won hands down as per the available data.
The start of the show has also changed the fortunes of Sony TV. The channel’s viewership increased by 24%. The GRP rose from 278 to 374 in Week 17. A channel spokesperson confirmed the figures and said it was indeed good news.
It should also be noted that Bajrangi Bhaijaan got a TRP of 15.5 and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo got a TRP of 16.6, far higher than Bajirao Mastani. In fact, even Dilwale got a better TRP of 3, which amazed many.
Bajirao Mastani on Colors was touted as the channel’s master-stroke to combat The Kapil Sharma Show excitement, which was there amongst the audience. The first episode got mixed reviews but it looks like the competition will sustain for a long time now.
