BARC Ratings : TV9 remains the market leader


Andhra Pradesh witnessed two elections in the month of August, but there was hardly any impact on the ratings of the Telugu news channels. TV9, NTV and ABN Andhra Jyothy continue to be TRP toppers. V6 and 10TV have been vigorously competing for the fifth position. While in the previous month V6 was in 5th position, this time it slipped one place paving way for 10TV in the top five. The inclined coverage of Nandyal election did not effect, Sakshi which remained in the seventh position. ETV Telangana and ETV Andhra Pradesh evidently alone or together couldn’t surpass the regional channel T News which is 8th in the list. Gemini which tops the ratings in entertainment segment has never made it to top10 in the news segment. HMTV, I News, Studio N and Jai Telangana TV are the tail enders.
