When the promo of Dus Ka Dum season 3 had come out a while back and seemed to be very promising, the TRP numbers, however, speak a very different story.
The TRP for the opening of Dus Ka Dum was at a mere rating of 1.1, reaching 2.6 million viewers, according to DNA.
In comparison to these numbers, Salman's previously hosted show, Bigg Boss 11, registered mammoth numbers. The rating was at 2.5 reaching 6.3 million viewers.
Also, shows which are at the 8:30 pm slot in other channels have worked better than Salman's game show. Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chasmah had a rating of 1.92 and Kullfi Kumarr Bajewala had a rating of 2.3.
A source said DNA, "The time slot of the show is not right. The channel has a loyal following for KBC (Kaun Banega Crorepati) at 9 pm, so one doesn’t understand why they slotted Dus Ka Dum at 8.30 pm. In fact, once they even tried to heavily push KBC, by shifting it to 8.30 pm, but the ratings dropped. Secondly, the logic of airing it on Monday and Tuesday instead of the weekend is puzzling. Thirdly, apart from Salman, who’s entertaining and in his element while interacting with the contestants, there is no energy in the show, so it’s not engaging enough."
