Looks like DD National is taking over TV industry much faster than any other mainstream and popular channel in last 30 years. A few weeks ago Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan and BR Chopra’s Mahabharat re telecasted due to coronavirus lockdown and surprisingly within 4 days the channel recorded a whopping 1.5 billion viewership, but now the channel has surpassed its own record by becoming the most-watched channel for two consecutive weeks gaining 1.9 billion viewership in the second week. The government broadcaster and owner of DD National, Prasar Bharti, celebrated the achievement of DD National in a tweet, they wrote, "DD National continues to be No. 1 for two consecutive weeks in a row." Apart from mythological shows like Ramayan and Mahabharat, Doordarshan has also brought back thriller, drama and comedy shows like Byomkesh Bakshi, Buniyaad and Dekh Bhai Dekh.
