space, with Zee Café coming back to
take the lead in the English
entertainment genre, Sony Pix moving
up to No. 2 in the English movie genre
and Cartoon Network re-entering the
kids genre at No. 3.
Surprisingly, the top two channels in
the English entertainment genre
witnessed a big drop in their ratings in
Week 39. Previous week’s leader
Comedy Central saw a big drop in
ratings, which caused it to slip to the
second spot.

top movies in a week. Moreover, the
filler and ‘Iron Man 2’ on Pix got the
same ratings.
Rounding off the top five was
‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island’,
which was telecast on Movies Now.
