The New KBC: Ending a decent innings?blur=25

The New KBC, as Sony Entertainment Television officials like to call it, had begun with a bang despite the skepticism around the show given the previous two seasons. As the show ends, the industry is divided over the latest season&rsquo;s performance &ndash; while one view is that the finale episode could have rated better, the other view is that this has been one of the better seasons, where all episodes held on to the ratings till the very end, and the show allowed Sony to beat Zee on enough occasions to be at the No. 3 spot.

Noorings: From ‘Sach ka Saamna’ to ‘Bigg Boss’ - the different standards of MIB’s <i>insaaf</i>?blur=25

The television industry had an action-filled week. First, the I&amp;B Ministry directed Colors and Imagine to change the timings of &lsquo;Bigg Boss&rsquo; and &lsquo;Rakhi ka Insaaf&rsquo; to a later slot. Then, Colors challenged the Ministry&rsquo;s directive in court and got a stay on the order. While these developments raise quite a few questions, one cannot help but compare a similar scenario, including Star Plus&rsquo; &lsquo;Sach ka Saamna&rsquo; last year, and wonder why the Ministry issues different directives for the so-called &lsquo;adult&rsquo; content.

And KBC does it again… at least in its debut week?blur=25

Whether it was the return of the original host or Sony&rsquo;s sudden turn of fate or the sheer time gap since it was last seen, &lsquo;Kaun Banega Crorepati&rsquo; has emerged as the highest rated show amongst recently launched big-ticket properties with an opening TRP of 6.2 TVR. KBC allowed Sony to catapult to the number three spot without any support from movies or events.
