Doordarshan viewership

Amid the ongoing nationwide lockdown, TV channels have resumed broadcasting their top shows so that people remain entertained and are motivated to stay at home. Doordarshan Channel has once again attained popularity among masses as it started re-telecast of epic serial Ramayann directed by Ramanand Sagar. Along with Ramayan, other serials which had been popular in the past are also being re-telecasted by Doordarshan.

Due to this, Doordarshan has racked up high viewership as compared to any other TV channel. Recently, Prasar Bharti shared viewership data of Doordarshan, which came as a pleasant surprise for viewers as well as Doordarshan itself.

Prasar Bharti shared this information through a tweet, in which it was mentioned that Doordarshan has broken its own viewership record in the 14th week of calendar year 2020. Doordarshan received 1.5 billion viewership in the 13th week of 2020. At the end of the 14th week, the channel has received 1.9 billion viewership. These numbers itself are huge achievement for the channel.

The surge in Doordarshan’s viewership can be attributed to the re-telecast of popular TV shows of the past. Among these shows, Ramayan has attained highest TRP.

Other old shows that are being re-telecasted include ‘Mahabharat’, ‘Byomkesh Bakshi’ and ‘Shaktimaan’ among others.

Interestingly this phenomenon of re-telecast of old popular shows and its success has caught the eye of other private TV channels like Zee and Star and they too have started re-telecasting old popular TV shows of their channel.

As ‘Ramayan’ is drawing towards an end, some viewers have started demanding the re-telecast of serial ‘Shree Krishna’ which also was directed by Ramanand Sagar.
