i have a slight question here: do all the other serials show a lot of segments and promos like PV does?...
i am in another country and every time i see a lot of promos and segments of PV (and i don't understand Hindi but have a workmate from Maldives who translate it to me), i kinda get the gist immediately or most of the idea of what's going to happen in the next episodes. I'm only watching Punar Vivaah so i really follow it every night.
What happens when in the present location you are being bombarded with many serials and have so much choices to watch? If i put myself in that location, i would probably watch other shows as i've already have an idea of PV from the segments and promos and watch the replay the next day...
Dear I am getting what you are saying and that may be right to some extent. But in India, actual problem is, most of people watch shows for entertainment and doesn't get attached to the stories. I won't be surprised if one hype regarding any upcoming sequence in any rival show attract all the audience. PV has a base audience which is regular and stick to the show irrespective of high points. I think PV has almost 2 TRP in the case of base audience. But about cream audience, that is kind of shifting from one show to another according to sequence. Here comes the up-down of TRP.
Common thinking is that we could catch repeat of one show and we can watch other show at 10:30 slot which is currently showing nerve capturing sequences. Here people who are attached to story in term of viewership is lesser than the cream audience.
These promos and segments are made for cream audience because regular audiences are gonna watch the show anyways.
So that's how , selection of right sequence for promos matters for attracting cream audience.
I agree. Regular audience doesnt need any promos to compel them to watch PV, its just for the cream audience. However, fall in TRP is something beyond my understanding. As you said other show which are showing more interesting sequence is where mostly the audience is shifted. And right even my mumma and sister prefer to watch other serial as they can watch PV later. SO, I think this might what is happening and mano ya na mano, housewives in India are the main TRP for TV serials. because young people might get busy with different thing, and if they miss they usually download the required segment or episode but ladies at home dont generally do this so they prefer watching their fav in the prime time, so I think shayad thodi bahot problem yahi ho rahi hai. But the new promo is so promising and I am sure we will see a rise in TRP next week.
Dont worry guys... TRPs will surely gonna increase.
