@Anu my point is simple. I wont say EHT was a masterpiece or something. In TV world success is measured by TRP not the quality of the show. Shows like PR, Uttaran, SNS, Sasural Simar ka are treated success in TV world. Because of that we keep on getting more and more trash like that as people feel that is the only thing that can succeed.
Other category that succeeds is Mythology or Historical show. I mean Mahabharath, JA, Maharana Pratap etc..
Any new concept falls flat in the TRP race ensuring people simply don't take such concept. In such a scenario EHT finally in that top 10 atleast for 2 months and slot leader for 2 weeks make a statement. That yes there is a chance for such a show to succeed if the time slot is choosen correctly.
On the other hand if the TRP didn't rise, if the show has ended without TRP it again proves the concept only saas bahu survives.
Look at the media which had completely ignored EHT from Oct coming up with articles post it wrap up. Tellybuzz itself has 2 interviews with Vatsal and Bhuvnesh. Telly Tadka has article. So that TRP helped the show, its concept to get noticed. Characters like Sakshi and Durga get noticed.
Veera got extension look at its condition. It is butchered beyond recognition. The strong title character is reduced to a crying crying girl, her brother's chara which was the basis for the whole story is changed beyond recognition. DABH I have nothing to tell. It was good but a mess now.
Maybe after TRP didn't rise the demand of the channel would have been to bring some soapy twist for the extension. Like kit pit between Suchitra Durga, more abuse by Dev towards Durga, Payal falling for Dev or Aakash falling for Durga and plotting against Dev or Dev saving Durga from rape. Maybe PH disagreed to those demands and might have taken the exit route.
And obviously the TRP that it finally got gave them the voice that their concept won, which otherwise would not have been possible.
Yes sticking to that concept and finally TRP for that concept has given chance to some other producer to go for something different, something better but analyze the failures of EHT and position his product strategically to get better viewership.
