According to TAM report on GECs for Week 13, Star Plus, the leader in the GEC fray, has seen a drop in ratings in this week at 289 GRPs (318 last week).

Ratings for both Sony and Colors soared in week 13. While Sony clocked 217 GRPs (209 last week) and finished second; Colors garnered 205 GRPs (200 last week) to close in at the third place.

Sony's popular shows Crime Patrol and C.I.D. continue to be a part of the top ten programmes. This week saw Colors' popular shows Balika Vadhu and Uttaran retreat to the list as well.

Zee TV, however, plummeted by 14 GRPs this week and toppled down from second to fourth place with 200 GRPs (214 last week) and no shows in the list of top ten Hindi GEC programmes.  

SAB, Life OK and Imagine TV registered 140 (132 last week), 82 (74 last week), 54 (62 last week) GRPs respectively.

Sahara One and Star Utsav amassed 53 (43 last week) and 49 (46 last week) GRPs respectively.

DD1 and Zee Smile gathered 17 (86 last week) and 7 (7 last week) GRPs respectively. The substantial drop in ratings for DD1 could be accounted to the L/T Micromax Asia-12 PAK/IND match which was broadcast on DD1 in week 12, which managed to acquire 4.72 TVRs and a fourth place among the top ten programmes of  week 12.
