Breaks the rolling average format with the detailed impeder analysis of Morbi bridge collapse
As it can be seen through week and week data, yet again Sudhir seems to have crossed the milestone of 1000 TVTs that makes him arguably no.1 at 9pm 15+ HSM in the current week.
The phenomenal rise of Sudhir’s show can be seen in the graph below. This week had elements like Morbi bridge collapse and attack on Imran Khan in Pakistan.
BARC has been sent a query to confirm this news and will be updated when confirmation comes but internal analysts say that 9 pm Monday was the top slot of the entire news genre.
“”It is possible to defeat hundreds of landing pages and non-stop fiction content by a good product.”
Sudhir Chaudhary says, ‘’I’m thankful to the Black & White viewers for their amazing love for the show’’.
It is noteworthy that Sudhir’s social campaign Swabhimaan has been catching attention on social media and his latest video travelling with a cab driver organically crossed a million views in just a few days. This puts to rest any doubts on Sudhir’s fan following amongst audiences in the news genre. While BARC suffers from attribution to landing pages, YouTube which does not have this problem and it has shown Sudhir at the top since 2 consecutive months concurrent users.
This development also makes Aaj Tak the clear leader on prime time in pay platform only after the competitor who’s currently indulging in rampant landing pages.
