Amidst the coronavirus lockdown, every channel has started airing their classic shows, but Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan has bowled them all and within four episodes, the show became number one on Indian television but according to DD National’s latest tweet Ramayan made a world record by becoming the world’s most-watched show beating Game Of Thrones and Big Bang Theory. However the reports about Ramayan making the world record has been dismissed and according to a Live Mint report, Ramayan’s April 16 episode compared to the last episode of American Series MASH, which aired back in 1983 had nearly 106 million viewers whereas Ramayan received 77 million vieweship. Apparently Doordarshan stand by Ramayan’s ‘world record’ viewership and claims Ramayan has done better than any entertainment show across the world. Reportedly, Doordarshan drew report by Glance, a leading provider of official TV ratings in more than 120 territories. Which only shows report of the calendar year 2018. It doesn’t include the viewership or records of TV shows aired before or after. Even BARC claim they have no idea on what basis Doordarshan made its world record claim on.
