Start Date of Bigg Boss Telugu 5:
  • The makers of the reality TV series in Telugu along with the channel have initially planned to launch season 5 in June. However, the surge in COVID-19 cases and lockdown in various parts of the country have apparently forced the makers to postpone the launch of the show.
  • Notably, TV shootings are already stalled in Maharashtra and Kerala and a lockdown with additional restrictions is also under effect in Tamil Nadu as well. Though Telugu TV shootings are in full swing, the fate of a few other new non-fiction shows is still unclear.
  • The grand premiere of Bigg Boss Telugu 5, however, failed to surpass its predecessor's record in the launch ratings, according to the TRP report. The show has put up some good numbers in the U+R category during the week as well but the change in time slot of the show did have its effect, the TRP report suggests. Bigg Boss Telugu season 5 is now being aired between 10PM-11PM on weekdays while the previous seasons aired at 9:30PM. There was a demand from fans on social media to change the time slot, too. Order of ratings of Bigg Boss Telugu premiere: Bigg Boss Telugu 4> Bigg Boss Telugu season 5>season 3> season 1> season 2

The duration of the pilot episode was about three and half hours and the show makers managed to put interesting elements to ensure TRP ratings throughout the show. During the first 30 minutes, Nagarjuna’s introduction and Home Tour of Bigg boss house managed to keep the TV audience under his grip for over an hour. Later, the audience continued to watch the show for Shanmukh Jaswanth’s entry. Anchor Ravi was the last contestant to enter the house as it was the strategy of organizers to keep the best for the last to ensure people stayed on till the end.
  • Overall, the show was not at all boring because of the tasks that were given to the contestants. However, show observers reveal that the pilot episode ratings did not beat the TRPs of Samantha’s Episode that was aired during the Bigg Boss Telugu season 4. The TRP of the premiere episode of Bigg Boss Telugu season 5 ranked between 15 and 20, it is learned.
