A lot of shuffling has been noticed in the January programme guides of the three major Asian TV channels -STAR Plus, ZEE TV and Sony. Could it be down to the fact that ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ is returning later this month?
It has been confirmed that ‘Karam Apna Apna’ will continue on the channel but shifted to a new timeslot. Earlier reports suggested the soap was to wind down to make way for the Shah Rukh fronted gameshow. STAR Plus’ other soap ‘Virasat’ however is moving to sister station STAR One. It will replace ‘Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka’ next month. Children’s programme ‘Antariksh’ will also be ending next month.
There are reports that ‘Jab Love Hua’ is being axed due to falling ratings. The drama will be replaced with the much awaited ‘Maayka’, which BizAsia.co.uk reported on last week. ‘Jab Love Hua’ will end later this month.
Sony Entertainment Television Asia
The channel is dropping ‘Aisa Desh Hai Mera’ after its little success. It will see ‘Ek Ladki Anjani Si’ move to the 21:00 slot. The channel recently launched ��Kuluvuddu�۪.
