The grand opening of KBC 2011 has catapulted Sony to the No.1 position in these 3 cities where Colors has a GRP of 100, Star Plus has 106 GRP and with Sony TV catapulting up to 111 GRP.

With the excellent performance of KBC and continued dream run of 'Bade Acche Laggte Hai' and 'Saas Bina Sasuraal', Sony has firmly established its leadership position.

    AB sr is outstanding and he has excellent command on hindi as well as english. others tried to mimic him but Amitji took KBC to a new level... its a delight to watch him

    This show rocks... Bachhan sir is the soul of the show... Really a refreshing show. But it is not possible for a single show to make a channel no 1. Otherwise colors or zee wud always have been in top. Because pavitra rishta and ballika vadhu got more tam ratings than any other show of star plus. But star plus always tops coz average trps of all its shows r gud... This article is kinda fake. Even ipl matches didn't affect pr, bv, yrkhh, sns. Sns sometimes topped the list during ipl matches leaving far behind the ratings of matches. Kbc may top the list but SONY can't be no1. It has less no of shows compared to other channels. Which is essential to top the list... I m big fan of kbc... Bt sony no1... Ha ha Give me a break...!! Article likhne waalo tam website check kar lo. Sony ko no 1 bata k free ka publicity mat do.

    I'm so happy seeing this article. I prefer watching KBC to see Mr. Bachchan and also to gain some GK. This is really a great show and the incredible Amitabh sir has made it the greatest. KBC must be watched than watching stupid daily soaps aired on all the channels. Good to see a watchful show on sony after the best show CID.
