‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ gives Sony Entertainment a 2.6x rise in its weekend viewership

Despite the general mixed reaction to the debut airing of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, perhaps the host was right when he trashed negative media responses. Sony Entertainment TV would deem it no less than a hit: the debut show saw a 2.6x rise in viewership for Sony TV compared to its previous weekend programmes for the 9 PM – 10 PM time slot.
