Race for Ratings: Presenting Pakistani TV Channels’ Actual Ratings (1st to 7th February 2016)
Last week Daily Pakistan published some of the astonishing new channels ratings ever of different programs aired at different time slots. They might have come like a huge surprise to many media channels, media houses and general audience.

The race of rating is real and certain channels and programs go to any extent to catch the highest position in rating. Our ratings are based on data provided by the Pakistan only media rating agency, Kantar Media (Media Logic). They provides ratings of different TV channels and programs based on which show is being watched the most at any given time. Kantar Media collects this information through specialized devices installed on televisions in homes throughout Pakistan. These ratings are a basis for advertising tariff and volume, hence very important for these TV channels.

This is our second week to this rating chart presentation. We have made a graphical represntation of the actual ratings of TV channels and their shows, as reported by the ratings agency. These are easy to understand for everyone and one can easily compare who is leading the race of rating with a huge margin.

The graphs below show ratings of different TV channels at different times of the day. These graphs show the average rating of each show in the given time slot. Ratings for weekdays and weekends are shown separately.
