Zee TV worried with Colors' growth

With the fight for the second spot in the Hindi general entertainment channel space hotting up, Zee TV is launching a slew of shows to protect its turf. Television TOP TEN

Choti Bahu, Maa and Rang are the three fiction-based shows that will make their appearance on the channel soon.

Produced by DJ Creations, Choti Bahu will go on air by November. Maa is produced by Shakuntalam Telefilms. Television actor Rohit Roy and Mansi Roy's production house will produce Rang.

Zee TV still feels that reality format shows like Bigg Boss and Fear Factor are expensive acquisitions. Sources say the management is more worried with Colors' growth in ratings from fiction shows like Balika Vadhu and Jai Shri Krishna.

For the week ended 20 September (Tam, C&S, 4+, HSM), Zee TV had a gross rating point (GRP) of 232 while Colors was marginally behind (217). Balika Vadhu is at 6.22 while Jai Shri Krishna is at 4.42 TVR.

Zee also sees an opportunity in closing down on market leader Star Plus which ended the same week with a GRP of 287.

"The three GECs are delicately poised and will have to play their cards perfectly. There is a lot at stake. It will mean the right choice of shows, slots and movies," says a media analyst.

Zee recently reshuffled its weekend programming and launched new shows. Its new launches include reality show for kids Tata Indicom Chota Packet Bada Dhamaka and a fiction-based show Ranbir Rano.

From 8 September, Zee Next has shifted its fiction-based show Jhoomein Jiya Re to Zee TV to the afternoon band. The daily show is being aired at 2.30 pm on the flagship channel right from the start.

Zee TV's thriller-based show Hadsaa, which didn't deliver on ratings, is off air while Naaginn has moved from 8.30 pm to the 9 pm slot. Also fiction-based show Maayka (which was airing four days a week) telecasts five days a week at 8:30 pm. 

Besides, Zee has created an ideation outfit to work in tandem with its programming team. Priya Mishra will head the ideation team which will create new show concepts.

Mishra says, "The team will work on new concepts for shows, which will be put on either Zee TV or the regional channels."

Mishra comes in from UTV Television where she was working as creative director. Prior to that, she was at Sab TV as VP programming. This is Mishra's second innings with Zee TV. She was earlier working with Zee TV as executive producer.

Its Zee and the other channels' faults. If they stuck the the nice concepts they started with, and didn't turn everything into a saas-bahu serial maybe they wouldn't be so worried now Tongue

i have a doubt that the ratings would dip a bit from next week. is Jai shri krishna garnering high ratings. For me it is a comedy show with very stupid performances.
