While the Cricket World Cup fever continues to affect the viewership of Hindi general entertainment channels, Colors seems to be back in the race for No.1 spot in the 13th week of TAM 2011. The channel has narrowed the gap with Star Plus to just 18 points according to the latest TAM data released today. Besides Colors, Imagine TV is the only other channel which has gained some GRPs this week.
