Boyle's law supporting Zee way of working
Dr. Robert Boyle must be proud of these Z guys..atleast they applying it in real
Angie hatsoff to u too..giving brilliant ideas to everyready Mistijeee..Thanks for bringing all the laughter much need in forum..
Happy Lohri, Pongal, Makarsankrant, Uttrayan...
Chipak, thanks. Our Misti is really special. She finds comments that trigger that brain of hers.
Misti, I think your special use of Boyle's law did have a reaction. See how soon Zee announced that CB premiere
(hours after that post). Maybe once they start showing CB2, we need more special uses of Laws of Physics to make sure that Zee keeps away from their circles and carrots.
Angie I don't know whether it is Boyles law or Venn diagram......might be a combination of both.
The interesting thing is this news came out in the paper......so aiming at people who probably will be watching thE shows on TV.........that means TRP and Mumbai is one of the TRP hubs in India regarding hindi GECS.
Misti, that is a very good observation. Didn't they publicize in December that annoucement of CB2 would be made on Zee Rishtay awards and nothing of the sort happened. So, they are really counting on CB2 to make an impact. DID is one of their pet shows and they want to do everything to increase its ratings. If they are counting on CB2 to do it, it seems that CB was more popular than was indicated by the production house or Zee or even TRPs. I don't how TRPs are measured in India (weighing on metropolitan cities vs. rural area, geographical considerations etc.), but it seems to be a very imperfect way of taking audience opinion.
The channels and production houses seem to think that audience want these inconsistent characters, triangular stories which are prevalent in all serials these days (2 women fighting over a guy and the guy is too dumb to figure out anything). No wonder audience are rejecting new fare and yearning for old serials.
Angie you are right that after telling everyone regarding CB2 declaration in scratching each other back awards they did not do anything about it.......DID2 is one of their pet projects....they specifically started this project to get TRPs......only Geeta Kapoor is present as one of the judges, the other two regular DID judges are in Jhalak and Chak dhoom dhoom.......the rival shows in Sony and Colors. Infact they have also said that this is a special edition of DID, and the regular competition will be in march/april at its usual time. They are being careful because the SRGMP was not a success this year.......only few episode got them good TRPs ....there was backlash regarding the mentors horrible behaviour. So I think that they are careful. Publicly saying that CB was popular will mean that ZEE/ph is openly acknowledging that they were wrong in the way they handled CB and owning upto ones mistake in public is difficult and you need to have guts to do it........which I don't think either PH or zee has.
The way they count their TRPs is very illogical.........its mainly the urban areas and the sample size I think is only 8000. That is illogical considering the population of India and the vast difference in the viewing nature of the public...urban areas will watch something which might be different to the rural areas. Recently I read an article that the Government is now changing the way the data is collected.........the sample size will most probably be increased to 30,000 and will also include the rural areas. As fo the hotspots......I read in articles that the traditional ones are Mumbai, Gujarat, Punjab and Delhi......that is why I think most shows are on people from this area. RMJ is the best example where they have tried to bring in both Gujarat and Punjab. Recently Eastern UP, Bihar have also come up and so more shows are now coming out with Bhojpuri or maithali dialect. Basing CB in Agra after the leap was also most probably for this reason. They thought that if they take a very popular show and base it in a growing TRP zone then the ratings will increase further............but idiotically did not realise that they are changing the essence of the story and as a result lost out.
Oh the audience is loosing interest in the same stories........that is why the shows are usually not lasting long.
