The much-hyped Megastar Chiranjeevi's entry into Television screen has failed to score any big Television ratings. The TRP's for his TV show are in the normal range.
He took over the anchoring of "Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu" from Nagarjuna for the Season 4 that is being telecast on Star Maa TV.
The TRP's for this show in the first week are an average of 5.80, which is very normal rating for a high profile show like MEK.
Star MAA TV, which ranks second in overall popularity among Telugu General Entertainment Channels, hoped to score more than 10 TRP's with this show as they have publicised the program heavily.
Chiranjeevi delivered biggest hit with "Khaidi No 150" and he is basking in the glory of the movie's success. So, naturally even the analysts predicted of high ratings for his maiden TV show. But he got lukewarm response.
No wonder then that recently writer Yandamuri Veerandranath opined that Chiru's anchoring style is artificial compared to Nagarjuna.
On other hand, anchor Ansuya's TV program "Jackpot" on Gemini TV got more than 6.5 TRP's. So, Anasuya has scored over Chiranjeevi.
