Of all the tamil channels Vijay TV some how doesn't understand this simple logic. They show unattractive and stupid programs during these periods except for a mega serial by name "Ethu ooru kadhal kadhai" in the slot of 8:30pm to 9:00pm.
Sun TV captures the whole viewership by hosting some variety programs for 8:30 to 9:00pm slot and with "Kolangal" during 9:00 to 9:30pm slot and with "Selvi" during 9:30 to 10:00pm slot. Most of the households are hooked on to these mega serials. Even our house inmates are hooked recently to these serials as there is no other good programs to watch at that time.
Some facts to ponder about mega-serials:
- Even if you miss a couple of episodes, you won't feel the gap.
- The whole story can be told within a A4 sheet
- The whole story revolves around a central character/cast
- All situations and turning points affect only the central character.
- As expected the central character comes out in flying colors at the end
- Off late most of the central characters are being done by women (best way to hook the households)
Before we started with these tamil mega-serials we use to watch "Full House" played by Zee English. In recent days we have turned to tamil mega-serials, donno when it is gonna make us boredom.
