Zee has announced the third season of India’s Best Cinestars Ki Khoj, long after the second season which was on air on 2007. The show was first launched in 2004. “We wanted to get into the acting space again, and design a unique experience for our viewers so we have announced the auditions for it and will be travelling across the country. In fact, we’ve already finished the auditions in Amritsar and Dehradun,” confirms Namit Sharma, Programming Head of Zee. The previous season of the show had Anupam Kher, Pooja Bhatt and Madhur Bhandarkar as judges with Aman Verma presenting the show.
Sharma though, refuses to further divulge details on who’ll be judging the show this time around. Few television and film actors popular today also came into limelight through Cinestars Ki Khoj, for instance, Aditi Sharma (Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl) Ankita Lokhande (Pavitra Rishta) and Shraddha Arya (Tumhari Pakhi) among others.
Mad Men premiere draws 2.3 million, lowest season debut since 2008
Advertising drama, Mad Men, facing a night of stiff competition on cable television, drew 2.3 million viewers to the premiere of its seventh and final season, network AMC said on Monday. Last week’s hourlong episode was unable to match the 3.4 million that watched its sixth season premiere last year, according to data compiled by Nielsen and released by AMC. It was the lowest viewership for a season premiere episode of the 1960s advertising world drama starring Jon Hamm as the unstable ad man Don Draper since Season Two in 2008.
The episode faced-off against MTV’s annual celebrity-filled movie awards show aimed at younger audiences. Mad Men also aired right after HBO’s hourlong ratings juggernaut, fantasy epic Game of Thrones.
The hourlong HBO show averaged 6.3 million viewers last Sunday. Audience figures for the MTV Movie Awards have not been released, but the show averaged 3.8 million viewers last year. Emmy-winning Mad Men averaged about 2.7 million same-day
viewers in season six and 3.8 million overall viewers, including those who recorded the show and watched it later in the week.
Its seventh season will be split into two parts with the final seven episodes to air in spring 2015.
