As per BARC (Broadcast Audience Report Council, India) report, Bigg Boss 11 grabbed the 12th rank with 4.38 million viewership among urban areas.

The low numbers of the controversial reality show have come as a surprise given that a lot of high-voltage drama took place in the Bigg Boss 11 house.

Shilpa Shinde's personal attack on Vikas Gupta and the latter's attempt to leave the house became the hot topic of discussion on Week 44. Even Priyank Sharma revealing Arshi Khan's Pune-Goa scandal that resulted in host Salman Khan blasting him on Weekend Ka Vaar episode grabbed a lot of attention or Puneesh Sharma and Bandgi Kalra's romantic moments.

Zee TV's Kundali Bhagya overshadowed previous week's top scorer Kumkum Bhagya by becoming the number one show in Week 44 with 6.9 million views among urban areas.
