Just a couple of days ago, at the press conference, Salman Khan stated that the show will air at 10:30 pm. However, Bigg Boss 12 has got a new time slot ahead of its premiere.
Not just the Weekend Ka Vaar With Salman Khan, but all other episodes of the show will now air at 09:00 pm on all days, instead of 10:30 pm Monday to Friday.
The change is expected to benefit Bigg Boss 12, as the prime time slot is expected to bring in more ratings for the show, attract more viewers, and in turn mint more money for the channel.
The changed slot comes with its perks but has its limitations. The show makers will now have to be extra-careful about the controversial content like fights and intimacy between contestants.
Bigg Boss aired its first four seasons in a prime-time slot, but it had to be shifted to 10:30 pm slot from Season 5 onwards. The Weekend episodes on Saturday and Sunday continued to air at the 09:00 pm slot. While Bigg Boss 04 was one of the most successful seasons of the show, as far as ratings are concerned, the change in time slot affected the overall numbers.
Unlike the previous years, the makers have shifted the launch of the show from October to September. Salman launched the show in Goa a couple of days ago and promised a rollercoaster ride for the audience for the next 100 days. At the launch, Salman who believes that Bigg Boss is the biggest property on television, stated, “I watch the Bigg Boss episodes twice, so I tend to build a relationship with everyone.”
However, this year Bigg Boss Season 12 will have to face Kaun Banega Crorepati. Now this means that Salman Khan is set to take on Amitabh Bachchan and Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 10 head-on. Wow!! Now that’s going to be fun!!
Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 09 had set very high standards and this one too is expected to do very well, but now with Bigg Boss Season 12 coming up, it’s going to be anybody’s game.
Bigg Boss Season 12 is set to premiere on September 16, 2018, at 09:00 pm every day on Colors TV. Do stay tuned for all the exclusive updates on Bigg Boss Season 12 and remember to tweet @isalilsand, and let me know your views and opinions.
