According to snap polls done in six metros by the overnight audience measurement agency, aMap, the music based contest Junoon – Kuch Kar Dikhane Ka of Hrithik Roshan attracted an average television rating of 0.82% and Salman Khan’s Das Ka Dum (DKD) could only garner a TRP of 1.65%.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain? – that was launched on April 25 – got off to a better start. The quiz show enjoyed a TRP of 2.7 on the first day.
The show that evaluates the participant’s knowledge on information that a fifth class student knows, has dipped in popularity since its launch. Industry experts have blamed the low ratings to the IPL season that consumed public interest earning TRPs of 7 or 8.
Even in its peak rating, the Indian version of Are you Smarter Than A Fifth Grader? has beaten both Salman Khan and Roshan with a peak rating of 3.5%. DKD had a peak rating of 2.6 while Junoon barely managed a rating of 1.1.
Incidentally, Kaun Banega Crorepati 3 – another show hosted by SRK last year – did better than the three that are currently running. While its average rating was 3.4%, it had a peak rating of 4.9%.
