Big B unblogs mind, says quiz shows losing popularity
The latest entry on Big B's blog is about the falling popularity of television shows.

New Delhi: Amitabh Bachchan has been blogging and responding to his detractors on controversial issues to getting back at people in power like Health Minister Ramadoss.

However, recently in his blogs, he has mentioned that Shah Rukh Khan’s Paanchvi Paas does not have ratings like Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati Dwitiya.

Did you know that Amitabh Bachchan's Kaun Banega Crorepati Dwitiya in 2005 opened with a TV Rating of a huge 19.7 while Shah Rukh Khan's recent quiz show Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hai opened with a miserable rating of 4.6?

For those who did not know, Amitabh Bachchan wants to make sure that everyone knows the ratings through his blogs.

The latest entry on Big B's blog is about the falling popularity of television shows hosted by movie stars. Though Bachchan raises questions about the reason behind falling TRPs of these shows, the statistics presented clearly show that Amitabh Bachchan leads the pack in terms of popularity leaving behind stars like Govinda, Anupam Kher, Manisha Koirala and Shah Rukh Khan who've also hosted shows on the small screen.

Earlier Big B had revealed that Star TV had approached him first with the concept of Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hai, however, he had not find the idea challenging enough.

“I have not seen it. I have seen the master. I was offered to do it. But now it has gone to Shah Rukh. I wish him all the best,” says Amitabh.

However, people will have to wait till the IPL series gets over to get Shah Rukh's rejoinder on Bachchan's musings.
