Everyone needs a report card to track their progress, and that’s the case with the TV industry too. In October, their weekly report card — TAM ratings — was shelved owing to the introduction of set-top boxes and a digitalisation process. Now after nine weeks, they’re back, and we have the figures. The usual suspects still occupy the top 10 spots, but there’s been one major surprise — Colors has overtaken Star Plus to bag the first position. The two channels have 239 GRPs (Gross Rating Points) and 231 GRPs respectively.
