BARC Ratings: TV9 tops but NTV sees steep fall
Ravi Prakash’s TV-9 has become supreme in Telugu news channels and the latest Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) ratings shows that it continuous to be a leader. Veteran journalist Rajinikanth’s prime time BIG Debate has been garnering consistently good BARC ratings.
In a very surprising decline, NTV which has been closely trailing behind TV9 has seen a steep fall to sixth position, giving its second place to TV5. ABN persisted at third spot. With NTV’s fall in ratings, 10TV and V6 secured fourth and fifth places respectively.
T-news which has been closely competing with Sakshi for quite some time now, is leading at seventh leaving the eighth spot for Y S Jagan’s media house.
The ninth and tenth position of ETV AP and ETV TS evidently prove that the media mogul Ch Ramoji Rao’s dream of surpassing TV-9 is not going to happen any time soon.
I News, Gemini News, HMTV, Studio N and TV1 are the tail enders respectively.
