The American medical drama on the fictitious lives of medical interns and doctors is what Indian television audiences are hooked onto, as Grey’s Anatomy beats Two and a Half Men to top the English TV shows category of the Whats-On-India report.
According to the TV search and electronic guide provider company, Whats-on-India’s report Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! holds firm in the 3rd position and is followed by The Big Bang Theory in the same category. How I Met Your Mother landed the fourth spot, while the finale of So You Think You Can Dance’s latest season generated enough curiosity to gain the fifth spot.
Not much surprise in the Hindi TV show category though as the report points out that none of the series budged from the spots that they secured last week. Bigg Boss is still ruling Indian drawing rooms. Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon retains second position with CID, Balika Vadhu and Bade Acche Lagte Hain all retaining their respective third, fourth and fifth spot.
In the English movie category The Dark Knight remained invincible as it clinched the first spot again, despite two new films, Johnny English Reborn (HBO) and Safe (Sony Pix) making their debuts on television. Justin Timberlake starrer In Time claimed the 2nd spot followed by Johnny English Reborn on third and Safe on fourth. Comic-book based Green Lantern featured on the 5th spot.
After two weeks, OMG! Oh My God was replaced from the top position by Abhishek Bachchan starrer Bol Bachchan, in the Hindi movie category. Salman Khan’s Wanted took the second spot, followed by Shah Rukh Khan’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (Set Max) at third. Ishaqzaade (Set Max) clinched the fifth spot.
Manchester Derby in Barclays Premier League 2012/13 Live topped the sports category, beating out the Airtel England Tour of India 2012/13 Test Live, which formerly took the 1st spot in this category ended second on the list.
Air Crash Investigation (Nat Geo) dethroned the cartoon series, Doraemon (Disney Channel & Hungama TV), from the pole position in Kids, Documentaries, Lifestyle & Food category. Doraemon finished on 2nd spot, followed by personal technology show, Tech Guru (CNBC Awaaz), which also dropped one spot to 3rd.
