Colors races ahead of Star Plus to take 2nd spot; Zee Cinema tops Hindi film genre

MUMBAI: After a long while, Viacom18’s Colors raced ahead of Star Plus to become No. 2 among the Hindi GECs, even as free-to-air (FTA) channel Zee Anmol maintained its numero uno position in the 50th week of 2015.

Incidentally, all the channels witnessed a fall in their respective viewership, compared to Week 49. However, apart from the swap at the second and third spots, there was no change in the channels’ hierarchy.

Zee Anmol, despite a drop, remained firm at the top for the second consecutive week.
