Bigg Boss has been one of India’s most popular reality TV shows. The show’s popularity on the global stage has prompted the makers to create a version in each regional language such as Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Hindi, and Malayalam. Bigg Boss reality show TRP dropped drastically; reasons are many.
The Telugu version is in its sixth season and is being hosted by Akkineni Nagarjuna for the fourth consecutive time. Bigg Boss Telugu was launched on 4th September and has registered poor ratings, which has become a massive shock to the makers. Here is Bigg Boss Telugu Launch Episode TRPs Season wise:
BiggBossTelugu1 – 16.18 TRP
BiggBossTelugu2 – 15.05
BiggBossTelugu3 – 17.9
BiggBossTelugu4 – 18.5
BiggBossTelugu5 – 15.70
BiggBossTelugu6 – 8.86**
Barring a couple of them, there is a serious lack of big interesting personalities in the show and that might be the reason for such a cold response. Along with this, the launch episode coincided with India vs Pakistan T20 match and makers are expecting the show will pick up in next episodes.
When the Bigg Boss Bigg Boss TV show was introduced, famous names used to enter the Bigg Boss house. However, recently the trend has changed. Many people who have gained fame in social media are getting a chance. It doesn’t connect much with one category of TV viewers. Because of this Bigg Boss charm is shrinking day by day. Many people who have seen Telugu Bigg Boss TRP have found this saying true.
Bigg Boss Telugu has already completed five seasons. First day TRP of every season was 15+. But, this time the calculation is reversed. On September 4, ‘Bigg Boss Telugu Season 6’ got only 8.86 TRP. Half of the TRPs have fallen, which is a cause for worry for the channel.
Many reasons are being given for the fall of the September 4 episode. On that day, India and Pakistan were playing in the Asia Cup. For this reason, most people preferred watching that match. So it is a guess that Telugu Bigg Boss TRP may have fallen. Also, viewers are not paying much attention to this because there are no contenders this time. Even though the list of Bigg Boss contestants was leaked earlier, it is said to be the reason for falling TRP.
