Pracchand Ashok TRP: The BARC TRP ratings for week 6 have been released on Thursday. The week didn't bring cheers for Colors channel as its newest property failed to strike a chord with the audience in the first week.

PRACCHAND ASHOK FIRST WEEK TRP

We are talking about Pracchand Ashok. While it's too early to predict the future of the show, the first week TRPs always determine the success and longevity of a Hindi fiction drama. Starring Adnan Khan and Mallika Singh, the historical drama replaced Bigg Boss 17.

According to the TRPs released by BARC, Prachand Ashok had an average TRP of 0.8 in the first week. The numbers were low considering the buzz for the popularity. Replacing Bigg Boss is not an easy task and every fiction show struggles to gain momentum in the first few weeks but the low numbers prove that the viewers are still sticking to Anupamaa on rival channel Star Plus.

PRACCHAND ASHOK LOW TRPS, WILL IT TURN OUT TO BE FLOP?

An industry source exclusively told Filmibeat, "Every year Colors TV suffers a drop in numbers after Bigg Boss ends. This year is no different. However, the low opening TRP of Pracchand Ashok is something to worry about. Despite a star-studded cast and strong promotional campaign, the historical show has failed to live up to the hype. A TVR of less than 1 is definitely not what the channel expected."

While Ekta Kapoor is backing the show, her magic has not worked wonders. Despite her success ratio on Colors channel, her shows like Bepanah Pyaar, Pavitra Bhagya, Molkki 2, Kuch Toh Hai: Naagin Ek Naye Rang Mein, DharamPatnii, Bekaboo have failed to garner viewership on the Viacom-18 owned GEC.

Only Parineetii and Tejasswi Prakash starrer Naagin 6 has performed better for the channel. Colors TV had to change the time slot of Parineeti to make the show successful. Will Pracchand Ashok meet a similar fate? It's too early to predict.

PRACCHAND ASHOK TRPS VS ANUPAMAA, BIGG BOSS 17

Bigg Boss season 17 ended with a blockbuster TRP of 3.1 for the grand finale episode. Anupamaa is faring at 2.8 that means Pracchand Ashok is generating only 1/3 BARC TRP viewership of the Rupali Ganguly-Gaurav Khanna starrer.

The show performed just slightly better than Molkki 2, which replaced Priyanka Chahar Choudhary and Shiv Thakare's Bigg Boss 16. Can Ashok bounce back? Siddharth Nigam's season was at an all-time high, securing the slot leadership at 9pm. Can Adnan Khan replicate the magic.

"If the makers introduce an intriguing storyline, the show can garner a TRP of 1.5. It all depends on the tracks, chemistry between leads. If not, then the show will be filler till Bigg Boss 18 launces on the channel," the industry source quipped.
