We conducted a survey in August 2008 through our visitors about the current affairs programs on different TV Channels. Results of the survey has been compiled and summarized below.
A total of 854 votes were cast, where every user was asked to tell us the top 10 programs of his choice, out of which the first 5 were mandatory. The ratings were calculated by using weights for each position of the choice in descending order.
For instance, we counted the number of times Live with Talat was voted in top position, 2nd position and so on. We used 10 as weight for the top choice position, 9 for second and so on until “1″ weight for last position.
The ratings for the top 6 programs are fairly accurate as per the choice of visitors of PKPolitics. The ratings for lower 4 programs are not so accurate due to the fact that the last 5 options were optional, as well as PKPolitics does not publish most of these programs regularly.
The ratings of TV channels were generated by calculating the sum of all their programs
AAJ TV Ratings = Live with Talat + Bolta Pakistan + 4 Man Show + Begam Nawazish
Geo Ratings = Capital Talk + Hum Sab Umeed + Meray Mutabiq + Kamran Khan + 50 Minutes + Left Right + Jawab Deyh + Aik Din Geo Ke Saath
Express Ratings = Kal Tak + Column Kaar + Siyasi Log
ARY OneWorld Ratings = Off the Record + Insight with Javed Malik + Second Opinion + Focus with Faeza + Good Morning with Marina
Although the result of Meray Mutabiq was not relevant in the poll due to discontinuation, the original data was used without any changes for keep accurate results.
