We at DailyPakistan bring you the average ratings of different news channels, to give you an insight which news channel is being watched the most amid drastic changes in the country’s politics.

A pie chart of monthly ratings shared by a monitoring agency has revealed that Geo News, known for its criticism of Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, lost quite viewers in November.
