On a comparative note, the launch episode of Evaru Meelo Koteeswarudu got only 11.5 TVR ratings despite having NTR and Ram Charan in the episode. Moreover, Bigg boss sustained the ratings despite three fact that it was a 4 hour long episode. However, these ratings prove the popularity of Bigg boss show among the Telugu audience rather than the popularity of the stars. But anyway, at this moment, Bigg boss program proved it’s upper hand on all other Telugu programs except for some TV serials.
