For the very first time, four out of top 5 TV shows are Ekta Kapoor's shows. Looks like TV Czarina has cracked the formula to rule the ratings chart. No wonder, four of her shows are among the top five shows, according to BARC India ratings. However, Ekta's latest show - the reboot version of 90s love saga Kasautii Zindagii Kay - has not been making to even top ten shows. Though Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, which stars Parth Samthaan and Erica Fernandes, has lived up to the expectations and marked its debut at number 10 with 6.2 million impressions in its first week. But since then, it has not really been able to even enter the top 10's list. Reportedly, Kasautii has tremendous online viewership and the show has taken the 13th spot, according to BARC chart.

Speaking of Naagin 3, the supernatural drama was maintaining the top position on the BARC list every week ever since it went on air. We wonder, what went wrong that it slipped to the second position. Also, if you've noticed, TV viewers are embracing supernatural genre like never before; It is evident by the success of three recent shows - Naagin 3, Qayamat Ki Raat, Nazar. If you've been following the BARC reports regularly, you would know that the supernatural drama are giving a tough time to regular dramas. We won't be surprised if more and more supernatural shows are introduced. What do you think about this. Let us know in the comment section below. Watch this space for further updates.
