BARC has released the TVR (Formerly TRP) ratings for the overall market of Andhra Pradesh for the week (March 26th – April 1st).
NTV (83) continues its dominance over TV9 (63) as in the case of the last few weeks and the margin is also very high.
V6 (37) and TV5 (25) are in the next two positions (3rd and 4th).
Sakshi, the mouthpiece of the ruling party has got 17 ratings. ABN and TV5 which the government says are its main enemy are ahead of Sakshi.
ABN is marginally ahead with 18 ratings and TV5 has a decisive lead with 25 Ratings.
The actual lead may be a bit more because there is a blanket ban on these channels in some areas of Andhra Pradesh for reasons known to everyone.
But then, TV9 is known to be in favor of the YSR Congress which will tilt the scales for the ruling party.
