Generally Ramazan is considered as a time of self-restrain and self-reflection, but these days it is also the month where TV channels go all the way to offer audience with a range of Ramazan transmission. TV channels are in an endless rat race of ratings and even more in the Holy month of Ramazan.
In an effort to improve their ratings they do most bizzare things on screen and entertaining with lavish game shows.
Here are the Ramazan ratings for the top 6 Pakistani channels for the first two weeks of Ramazan :
According to the ratings provided by Media Logic, Geo entertainment has topped the ratings chart for the first two weeks of Ramazan with a viewership of 1.18 and closely followed by ARY digital.
Compared to the first two channels, the next in line, HUM TV is a huge drop at a rating point of 0.4.
URDU 1, A PLUS, and AaJ TV follow closely behind HUM TV, with average TRPs of 0.28, 0.25 and 0.1 respectively; but there is still a huge disparity as compared to GEO Entertainment and ARY Digital
It seems that the Sehri and Iftaar transmission by GEO entertainment (Pak Ramazan) hosted by leading televangelist Amir Liaquat and ARY’s (Shaan-e-Ramazan) hosted by Fahad Mustafa are immensely popular as compared to the transmission by other channels.
