The hits and the misses

December 25th, 2010

The year 2010 proved successful for a few serials and a few others lost their fame! While Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and Balika Vadhu stood their ground, other star performers of last year, like Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo, Chhoti Bahu, Aap Ki Antara, Bairi Piya, Sajan Ghar Jana Hai and Bhagyavidhata received low ratings.

If Balika Vadhu created the 8 pm slot, Choti Bahu was the slot leader at 7.30 pm, which infused life into early prime time. But it started losing ground to Sasural Genda Phool and was eventually shut down in September. Says, producer Tony Singh, "It was due to the stiff competition. The channel decided to close it down though ratings were not all that bad."

Aap Ki Antara, a story about an autistic child, suffered a setback too. The reasons stated were the change in slot, followed by change in characters. Sukesh Motwani, Fiction head, Zee, feels the show flopped because it got too preachy. "Wrong casting after the generation leap is another reason," he states.

If change of slot did not affect Aap Ki Antara, it did affect Agle Janam, which was sent down to early prime time to make way for Sanjog Se Bani Sangini. Producer Siddharth Tiwari of Agle Janam doesn't blame competition alone but says ups and downs are bound to happen when a serial is aired for two years.

Bhagyavidhata, another slot leader at 7 pm, lost most of its ground to the year's most surprising and successful launch, Saathiya Saath Nibhana.

However, Ekta Kapoor's Tere Liye at 10 pm almost killed the soap, Sabki Laadli Bebo, which was shifted to 6.30 pm. However, Anupam Vasudev, marketing head, Star, claims that it was a part of their plan to boost both the serials.

Thanks Madhu for the int. article.......Oh yeah stiff competition..and like true fighters what did they doWink Shut down the show with decent ratngs in 7:30 slot while same was giving atleast some comp. to SGP bound by its loyal viewers and replaced with a show doing poor at its own slot, thinking it will give more comp. to SGP...Tony was right in one sense oly and compeltely lost in another..due to stiff comp.Dead No it was closed due to Zee's own bad policies and some politics..what else...

 If the channels logic to pull out CB was because of stiff competition from SGP, how is AJ maintaining the balance. 1.5 v/s 4.9?? 

Tony atleast came out and said the truth that the channel abruplty pulled off the show when it wass going good!!!! 

Agree. CB was atleast giving some real competition to SGP (the rival show never crossed 3 in presence of CB, despite being a good show itself) But here, AJ is hardly able to cross 1. and SGP is gloating in huge numbers (its second highest in the race!!)Dead

Why isnt that AJ show being still run on air?? And now the show's even getting an extension and its a very potent show? Angry
