It’s time that we check the TRP charts as the weekend is almost here. We now have come to the 38th week of 2018, so, let’s take a look at which shows have been doing really well and which aren’t. As we eagerly wait for this report as this reflects on how well the shows have performed the last week, BARC ratings are here to validate whether the show is a hit or flop. Bigg Boss 12, hosted by Salman Khan, aired its first episode on September 16. While we thought that Bigg Boss 12 ratings will rule the chart, it seems that Salman Khan's show has failed to impress many. In fact, Ekta Kapoor's Naagin 3, which is in the first position, is ruling the chart with humongous numbers, while Madhuri Dixit's Dance Deewane‘s Grand Finale left Bigg Boss 12 behind in the race, taking the second position.
Top 10 shows (Urban)
With Naagin 3 and Dance Deewane's Grand Finale taking the first and second position (with 10 and 7 million impressions respectively), we have Star Plus' Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai left with the third position on the charts. While the longest running daily soap is still a part of the best five with 6.3 million impressions, the fourth and fifth spots have been taken by Zee TV's Kundali Bhagya and Sony Sab's Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma with 6 and 5.7 million impressions respectively. The other five shows that made it to the Top 10 list are Salman Khan Bigg Boss 12, Kumkum Bhagya (Zee TV), Kulfi Kumar Bajewala (Star Plus), Shakti-Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki (Colors) and Amitabh Bachchan's Kaun Banega Crorepati 10 (Sony TV) with 5.724, 5.700, 5.674, 5.467 and 5.465 million impressions respectively.

Naagin 3 continues to rule the charts with humongous numbers clocking around 15.402 million impressions, while Zee Anmol’s Kumkum Bhagya and Dance Deewane's Grand Finale earned the second and third spots with 13.387 and 10.861 million impressions respectively. Holding on to the Top 5 list, Zee TV’s Kundali Bhagya and Kumkum Bhagya have occupied the 4th and the 5th spots with 10.194 and 9.598 million impressions.
