IPL 10 viewership supremacy across genres

During its run, IPL 10 channels ruled the air with Indians lapping up the live event, more so during primetime. TV viewership declines during the summer months according to BARC. IPL 10 is probably one of the factors that helped retard this seasonal viewership decline.

IPL 10 commenced on Wednesday, 5 April 2017 (in BARC week 14). The mega T20 cricket bonanza played by 8 teams comprising of over 200 players including 72 international players concluded with the finals on Sunday, 21 May 2017, after 60 matches spread over 47 days.

BARC week 14 commenced on Saturday, 1 April 2017 and ended on Friday, 7 April 2017. Three days of play with three matches played happened in week 14. The event concluded in the beginning of week 21 – only one match was played during that week. Ten matches were played during each of BARC weeks15, 16,and 18. Nine matches were played in weeks17 (one match was rained out in week 17) and 19 and seven planned for week 20, with just one in week 21 as mentioned above.
