Zee TV’s much talked about game show Sawal Dus Crore Ka (SDCK) has shown poor ratings in the first week of the launch. INTAM, which Zee subscribes to, shows that SDCK began with a decent 8.87 TVR on the first day of the telecast (Monday, October 23).

According to Ravi Kiran, GM, Starcom Worldwide (media specialist of Leo Burnett), SDCK’s poor showing should help demystify the game show paranoia. Viewers can detect hastily put together programme when they see one.”
