Anupama Leads the TRP Race, ‘Taarak Mehta’ Slips Away: A Detailed Look at TV Serial Rankings


Mumbai: The Broadcasting Audience Research Council (BARC) has unveiled the much-anticipated Television Rating Points (TRP) report for the 18th week, offering a comprehensive look at the shows that have captivated audiences and those that have dwindled in viewer appeal. Here’s an in-depth analysis of the serials that are winning hearts and those that have not made the cut.

‘Anupama’ Reigns Supreme with Top TRP
The beloved drama ‘Anupama’, featuring Rupali Ganguly and Gaurav Khanna, continues its stronghold on the number one spot in the TRP rankings. Despite a slight dip, the show maintains a solid 2.3 rating, with viewers particularly enamored by the current storyline where Anupama triumphs in the Superstar Chef competition.

‘Jhanak’ Secures Second with Steady Performance
The Hiba Nawab and Krushal Ahuja-led ‘Jhanak’ hold firm at second place, boasting a 2.0 rating. The audience’s fascination with Jhanak’s burgeoning and triumphant career keeps the show a consistent favorite.

Battle for Third: ‘Yeh Rishta’ and ‘Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Mein’
The emotionally charged separation saga of Armaan and Abhira in ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ has resonated with viewers, propelling the serial to third place with a 2.0 rating. Hot on its heels is the Shakti Arora and Bhavika Sharma starrer ‘Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Mein’, which also garners a 2.0 rating, creating a tie and intensifying the competition for the coveted third spot.

‘Udne Ki Asha’ Soars into Top 5
The narrative of Sachin and Sayali in ‘Udne Ki Asha’, portrayed by Kanwar Dhillon and Neha Harsora, has struck a chord with the audience, swiftly climbing the TRP charts to secure a place in the top 5 with a 1.5 rating. Additionally, the mythological series ‘Shiv Shakti’ on Colors channel has also ascended to the top five, sharing the same TRP score.


Notable Exclusions and Surprises
In a surprising turn of events, ‘Imli’, starring Sai Niketan and Adrija Roy, has clinched the eighth position. Meanwhile, the long-standing favorite ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’, led by Dilip Joshi, has experienced a significant drop, falling out of the top 10 list for the first time in recent memory.

This week’s TRP report from BARC paints a vivid picture of the shifting landscapes in Indian television, highlighting the serials that continue to charm viewers and those who seek to reclaim their former glory.
