BADE ACHCHE LAGTE HAIN
Ekta Kapoor came up with a winner on Sony, weaving a very watchable story around love after marriage between two 40-year-olds. Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar have become the first couple of Hindi telly and Bade Achche Lagte Hain a TRP topper.
KAUN BANEGA CROREPATI
Amitabh Bachchan scripted a blockbuster KBC season, capping the Sony game shows sky-high TRPs with its first ever Rs 5 crore winner — Sushil Kumar from Motihari in Bihar (in picture left with Bachchan).
This American sci-fi drama — about a family that travels 85 million years into the past — was a sure-shot winner. Cant wait for Season 2!
Sex, lies and videotape — Californication on Zee Cafe ticks all three boxes. And how! David Duchovny as wasted and wanton author Hank Moody makes us loathe and love him. Statutory warning (or must-watch alert): Can be easily passed off as soft porn.
If the first and second seasons were popular, Season 3 was a winner. The STAR World cooking competition packed in drama and edge-of-the-seat moments. And lots of lip-smacking food!
The model-turned-actor was brave to take on a show in which celebrities came up, close and personal with their biggest haters. While Arjun as the host of Luv2HateU on STAR World is just about passable, we loved the fact that he put himself in the hot seat, taking on his detractor chin up. Attaboy!
After years of dilly-dallying, Hrithik Roshan took the small-screen plunge with Just Dance on STAR Plus. He cried with the contestants when they failed and laughed with them when they soared. And he moved like a dream. Double thumbs-up!
Up Close & Personal with PZ

Spontaneous and friendly, Preity had a blast with her star guests, asking them some sticky ones with her trademark dimpled smile and even shaking a leg with them. Ting!
As the host of Bigg Boss 5, the deadly Dutt has been a disaster. Bored and groping for words, Sanju Babas paunchy presence is an eyesore, his tendency to go Bigg Boss 5-5-5-5-5-5 headache-inducing. He is only remotely watchable when Salman Khan m
akes a rare appearance as co-host.
