Can I bring my perspective on this discussion.
Firstly...you need to identify how many members here are watching the show from India.
I only ask because I don't think opinions from overseas viewers are taken into consideration by the PH here..
...because the channel and PH is only concerned with TRPs from India...
..because 99.99% of their revenue come from advertising in India.
So...these shows are mainly made for viewers in India and not overseas.
Viewers from India are used to seeing this kind of slap-stick comedy in their everyday entertainment. You only need to look at popular shows like Comedy Circus on Star Plus and films like Golmaal and some of Akshay Kumars hit films... to see that this is an accepted form of comedy in India. This kind of formula works in India.
Overseas viewers went through this kind of comedy phase of slap-stick and OTT comedy sometime back. Overseas viewers are much more used to shows such as Friends
etc...which concentrate more on verbal humor with the odd slap-stick episode thrown in...which makes it much more enjoyable to watch.
