After a range of surprises happening for the past few weeks, this week has not churned out any. The list remains the same with no exits and no entries whatsoever, except for one pivotal change.
This unsurprising week has 'Shani' retaining its 10th spot with further disheartening news of a drop in the ratings as the show has now fetched 1.7 points.
The only major change that happened this week in terms of the show placements is how 'Udaan' has witnessed a considerable drop as it leaves the 2 point brigade at the 9th spot with 1.7 points.
Here comes the show with which 'Udaan' has swapped positions and that is 'Saath Nibhana Saathiya'. Though 'Saathiya...' doesn't witness an actual change in the ratings, it is 'Udaan's' drop that facilitates the former's rise to the 8th spot with 1.8 points.
It is another consistent week for 'Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah' as the show stays put at 7th spot garnering 2.0 points. The show should come back to the Top 5 soon as a longer period of the same wouldn't be healthy.
Just like 'Taarak..', 'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein' also maintains its spot this week fetching 2.1 points and getting the 6th spot. And also, it certainly should get the lost viewership back soon.
'Shakti... Astitva Ke Ehsaas Kii' manages to retain its 5th spot with a slight drop in the ratings as it barely scraped through 'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein' to get 2.1 points.
Zee TV's singing reality show 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L'il Champs 2017' continues to rise and rise as the show manages to fetch 2.5 points against 2.3 points last week. The sheer difference between 'Sa Re..' and 'Shakti' is the evidence on how the show has been convincingly on the rise.
The Top 3 has rarely made a difference except for one surprise a week before. 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai' not only maintains its 3rd spot but also remains consistent with 2.7 points.
'Kumkum Bhagya' re-enters the 3 point brigade as it grabs 3.0 points this week as compared to 2.9 points last week. Once again, the show is inches away from attaining the top spot.
'Naagin 2' has barely scraped through to retain the top spot this week only by a slight margin, the show also fetched 3.0 points being at the top spot.
A week that ended in a bland manner was a real disappointment. It's about time that 'Ishqbaaaz' and 'Ek Shringaar -Swabhimaan' buck up in order to make a re-entry into the list.
