The controversy surrounding Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover has affected The Kapil Sharma Show’s ratings as well. As per the Television Rating Points (TRPs) of Week 12 (March 18-24) of 2017, Kapil Sharma’s show couldn’t make it to the top 10 list.
With the central characters of the show, including Dr Mashoor Gulati (Sunil Grover), Dadi (Ali Asgar) and Chandu Chaiwala (Chandan Prabhakar) missing from the comedy show, the show failed to entertain viewers.
Since its inception, The Kapil Sharma Show had always made it to the top five most-watched shows and was the number one non-fiction show. However, with the absence of the key characters, it seems the comedy show is slowly losing its sheen.
The number one position belongs to Naagin 2, on number 2 we have Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, Number 3 acquired by Kumkum Bhagya, number 4 has Karmphal Data Shani, the show is improving its rating.
A new show, Shani, has climbed to the fifth position, while Swabhimaan and Shakti scored the sixth and seventh place, respectively. The eighth and ninth rank were secured by Saath Nibhaana Saathiya and Udaan, respectively. Singing reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa managed to grab the 10th position.
