The channel's popular reality show Bigg Boss clocked an average of 5102 TVTs (last week 5491 TVTs) as Anil Kapoor's 24 managed to record 2797 TVTs (last week 3058 TVTs) in this week.

Both Sony and SAB have been affected by the on-going distribution issue. The channels are not airing in the Hindi GEC line-up in the EPG of Hathway and some other distribution networks as well. The other MSM channels like Sony Pix, Sony Six and AXN are also suffering from distribution conflicts.

For the record, TVT is television viewership in 1000s (TVR in 1000). It is the average number of individuals in '000s that are available at any given minute of the programme/day part that is under consideration. It captures growth in TV audiences in the country in absolute numbers. The TVR system, in contrast, works on percentages.
