Live broadcast of the WWE RAW – 17 on Sony Ten 1 has scored over the live broadcast of India-Sri Lanka cricket Test in television viewership ratings.
WWE RAW broadcast has dethroned the live broadcast Indian cricket team’s games as the most watched sports in India. The top two shows in the week 46 Broadcast Audience Research Council data are WWR RAW broadcasts on Sony Ten 1. Live broadcast of the first cricket Test between India and Sri Lanka is at the number three position in the Top Five shows’ table for the week, to be followed by yet another WWE show – WWE SMACKDOWN 17, and Hero Indian Super League preview show on November 17.
WWE has also propelled Sony Ten 1 to the leaders’ position in the Indian television sports genre. However, the other four positions in the top five list belong to Star Sports with Star Sports 1 Hindi positioned at No. 2.
Cricket and Star may face a similar threat from WWE and Sony Ten 1 in the coming week, too. The RAW Survivors Series broadcast on Monday (November 20) morning has shown the return of Triple H, which holds a tremendous viewership prospect. The ratings battle between an engaging India-Sri Lanka Test, which has witnessed the collapse and revival of Team India, and WWE Survivors Series for crucial BARC ratings points is going to be an interesting one.
