Just to be more specific, it used to own Imagine when it was NDTV Imagine.  Then NDTV sold Imagine to Turner.

Thanks for the article. Interesting stuff indeed.

Wow...that is interesting read.  It amazes me that they thought viewership data of 8000 households was an adequate sample for billion plus people watching tv in India.  How did they get away with it for so long?

IT is a very interesting article what is known on an unofficial level nice to see it in black and white.lot of controversies about TAM that is the reason govt is now widening the sample as now it is tabulated from very few households and as you know NDTV had to close Imagine channel due to low trps so no wonder they are going in for a legal case.

Shell they are not only ruling India but also the world viewing as once the show stops in India it stops wherever it is telelcast in the entire world

Not to be disrespectful of shows that are doing well in the TRP world...but I have always wondered why some very horrible shows rule the charts for a very long time.  It never made sense...but now it does.
