I m not much impressed with lifeok shows as majority look depressing .. some r too preachy ... some are busy giving social messages ...the channel looks too serious ...there is less entertainment factor and this is not a good sign for a channel in the long run ...mayb first few weeks people will tune in out of curiosity but for long run ,people need some entertainment for relaxation ...
How many days viewers will enjoy watching a husband daily abusing his wife ...or how many days people r going to watch the sufferings of a Maa or how many days people will keep watching only the special effects of Shiva show ...or how many days people will keep watching politicians and lawyers giving bhashan on how to face the truth in SKS Sleepy
I dont see lifeok doing good in long run as it lacks variety in terms of entertainment

@Aarushi: Oh I completely agree! Their branding is pretty terrible as they have this cute little man who looks like a messenger of happiness and youth (or even childhood!) representing a channel that has none of the above. It is not very good marketing at all because the graphics don't match the content. This symbol would have gone much better with the DMG/MJHT genre while the old SO symbol would have worked better for this.

I agree "revamp" is the wrong word. It was more like completely obliterate and create something else in its place.

What I was trying to say about the shows though is that just because they are not catering to the same demographic as SO anymore, does not mean they might not find a new demographic. With SP, Sony and Zee all starting more youth oriented shows, and romances a niche channel like SO becomes redundant. It was useful when it was the exception. Now Star is trying to be one step ahead again when the mainstream has started to follow what they used to do on their niche channel.

So now the new niche is gritty real life stories and you really can't tell how good/bad, successful or not they are in so few episodes. Just like there was a youth audience waiting for a channel like SO, there may be a more serious audience waiting for a channel like LOK. Also they are bringing back a lot of stars like Aditi Gupta and Apurva Agnihotri (this is not sure) so they are putting in their efforts, not to mention the whole Madhuri campaign!

That is why I said don't write it off because in the bigger picture it is a very calculated business move, though there seem to be several problems at this stage.

Jo, agree with you on the channel's line up. 

I was visiting some cousins and caught some of Life Ok's promos. They don't look very appealing unfortunately. I have always said that Geet was the "outcast" in Star One's list of show's as well. It was an experiment that just clicked for them. All their other shows were crazy crappy ones. 

With their realization for a relaunch and wrapping up etc, I would expect them to come up with atleast some interesting story's, promos, logo's etc. They seem to be doing worse than Star one (atleast in the logo bit). Guess some people never learn from their mistakes... just as they don;t recognize bright opportunities. D'oh

@Jyo ...
I was thinking the same...
the lifeok serials are to serious... yes it has a decent social MSG but will it hold the viewers attention... not in the long run... cause we the viewers want entertainment... and not  so much reality on our screen...
plus the length off almost all shows not even 20 minutes... that with break...sorry wont work...
All hey gals...
I think last week reality hit harder on losing Geet then losing my job...

I honestly believe that what you want to watch on TV at any given instance just depends on ur frame of mind. So not just a channel, but even a single show should have variations and should be able to provide a viewer with multiple dimensions. That is probably one of the reasons Geet worked. It had positivity, commitment, started with a good storyline, had moments of fun, seriousness, complications, relaxations, etc. 

This is probably most of us loose interest to watch the same show after a while... because they carry on without any variations. Where as we don't want to see the same thing forever... be it happiness, sorry, suffering, anything. It should be a good mix of everything.  

So in my opinion, a channel cannot show a host of horror shows only (for example) and claim to be doing so to create themselves a niche. So this channel should also have shows of all cadres and attract multiple people demographics if they wish to succeed. Do I make any sense? If not, blame it on my headache.

@Samana - It is not that if one has or hasn't the taste for real-life shows or not -its just that I am wary of the way its cinematically portrayed so far and knowing how in current telly industry -trps and nos. thrive more than creativity or experimenting with newer thoughts its hard to swallow that SP-the mainstream channel's trying romance for competition -when at initial stages unique,untried concepts were tested  in SO-which showed consistently a good fare.
So SP dared to risk this "youth" formula only when it'd done well for its sibling with lower reach & hence unable to compete equally with SP.
It still has regular saas-bahu soaps as back up
As for the genre of real life related shows (sorry for earlier digression)-I do want an emotional connect with the protagonist-someone I enjoy viewing- not just mind boggling "twists" or "sad situations" jumbled in -for "drama's sake"
But variety is a key coz like you say -you don't know which one will click -but I don't think Zee,SP-really have been trying that lately -its only by shows like DMG, MJHT,GHSP,etc example they've gone away from demure,docile damsel being burdened stories.
Though Sony -is wayyy better than themSmile
