India’s most-watched TV news show at 9 pm is, pinch yourself, DD News!
Hindustan Times reports in its gossip columns that News Night:
“the primetime news show [on DD News] between 9 pm and 10 pm topped the TAM ratings last week with 66% market share, four times the channel which comes next.”
Interesting, if true.
And if true, the numbers below, which also use TAM ratings, become interesting.

It doesn’t look pretty when a free-to-air public service broadcaster gets into the TRP race.
