There is no substitute for Shahrukh, but no doubt RukRuk is getting more popular than Shahrukh. Kya Aap Paanchvi fail Champu Hain is having a better promotion and better viewership. KAPFCH is a genuine copied version of Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas se Tej Hain. KAPFCH is a perfect blend of copy (inspiration) and creativity. In the TRP battle between Salman, Shahrukh, Shotgun and others Champu definitely leading. The viewer barometer of popular TV shows can be measured by the extent of people discussing something. Like this blog, discussing something watched on weekend TV. Some Logically convincing PJ questions from KAPFCH were really very creative. Like Agar Tulsi ka naam money plant hota to kya baa use accept karti? Or True/ False on Chandu ke Chacha ne chandu ki chacchi ko chandi ki katori mein chandi ke chammach se chatni chataye, Or the best one on Gabbar Singh was LKG passed as he knew counting till 3. Really Champu is as entertaining as Raju Shrivastava.
Also this weekend onwards Laughter challenge season 4 has begun, I think shotgun is not complementing Siddhu that well (as Shekhar Suman), hopefully Laughter Challenge –IV will continue as flag horse of comedy series despite below par first episode.
