Sony Entertainment Television has gone thro' many a revamps when it comes to its fiction programming, but none of them have matched the fiction standards of other top class GECs.

Sony has now brought in a new strategy of competing with prime time fiction shows of other GECs with their popular and widely watched reality shows. Indian Idol 5 which has opened to a great response will now be aired at 9 PM, every Monday and Tuesday. The widely accepted Boogie Woogie is back and will be aired at the 9 PM slot, every Wednesday and Thursday. Their new show Comedy Circus ke Superstars will launch on May 22nd and will air at 9 PM every Friday and Saturday.

When asked about the new strategy, Ajay Bhalwankar, Programming Head, Sony said, "Yes, we are now looking at the 9-10 PM slot to be taken over by reality shows. Sony has always given something different, and this time we wanted to make our prime time programming crispy; also the fast paced nature of these shows is what makes the difference".

Guess it is going to be reality all the way for Sony!!

Sony is so not in tune with what the viewers want.
Reality shows are outdated
Even in Indian Idol Annu Malik still tries his stunts. People are turned off by insults and unnecessary drama - they look for qualiy.
the success of shows like dance india dance was because of the standard of the performances and not all this masala baazi
