India TV posts a healthy quarter

The channel which is quite popular among those who don’t watch it published its quarterly figures for the first time ever.

India TV, India’s only 24X7 humor channel has reported a healthy quarter driven largely by a 26 percent increase in bogus content. Speaking exclusively to news starved Humor Unplugged, India TV Chief Excesses Officer (CEO) Rajat Sharma said “We have increased our viewership by 1 person in the quarter gone by. While 20 people (from India TV office in Mumbai) watched the channel in the quarter ending June, a vendor who sells vegetables near our office was forced to watch the channel last month by our staff. We are also holding talks with over 20 prisons across the nation to see if the can show our channel to the prisoners as part of their punishment”.

Here are India TV’s figures for the July, August and Sept quarter
  • Number of bogus cooked up stories 867 (up 26 percent Q-o-Q) 
  • Number of noisy irritating loony anchors 27 (up 3) 
  • Viewership 21 (up 1)
  • Number of government warnings 157 (up 12) 
  • Revenue from kacha baniyan ads 33000 (up 1200)

LOL...HU is news starved...LOL...

I'm impressed by the figures though as viewers have increased. They can let them in the AC rooms. I bet they will see a steep rise.
