So here we go with the list of the Popular TV Shows of the Year 2022.

Take a look here.

Anupamaa: Anupamaa the Star Plus show produced by Rajan Shahi’s Director’s Kut had a good sustenance phase in 2022. The big wedding of Anupamaa with Anuj Kapadia happened this year, which took the plot to a new high. This brought about the #MaAn craze, that of Anupamaa and Anuj Kapadia played by Rupali Ganguly and Gaurav Khanna. The show which launched in 2020 has been topping charts from the time of its inception. This year, though Anupamaa lost total supremacy with its numbers too dropping down from a 3+ TVR, it maintained its numero uno status for the majority of the weeks.

Bade Achhe Lagte Hain 2: This Sony TV show produced by Balaji Telefilms had a good run in 2022, surviving many odds. The channel which is not known to have many long-running fiction shows saw Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2 creating a new record by being consistent. The show saw a generation leap followed by the kid track this year. With the New Year emerging, the show is all set for yet another generation leap with a probable change in its leads. Nakuul Mehta and Disha Parmar continued to be one of the favourite Jodi of the masses.

Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain: This long-running &TV show continued to spread its flavour of comedy everywhere. The year 2022 saw yet another replacement for Anita Bhabhi’s character. In came Vidisha Srivastava and she immediately held ground. Shubhangi Atre, Aasif Sheikh and Rohitashv Gaud continued to entertain audiences in the year 2022.

Bhagya Lakshmi: This Zee TV show produced by Balaji Telefilms held its own ground and did well in 2022. The love triangle between Rishi, Lakshmi and Malishka hit a new high with Malishka turning all the more vengeful. With the show poised at a crucial phase now, viewers look forward to more of the Lakshmi – Rishi romance. The year 2023 will surely go well for the actors Rohit Suchanti, Aishwarya Khare and Maera Mishra.

Kundali Bhagya: This Zee TV show produced by Balaji Telefilms was known for its lead Jodi of Karan Luthra and Preeta, played by Dheeraj Dhoopar and Shraddha Arya. However, Dheeraj took the major step of moving out of the show just before the leap was to happen. Dheeraj went out and in came Shakti Arora to take his spot. However, the plot was brought in with the character of Karan bagging a new identity. The drama has come a long way and is now crucially poised. We can safely say that Kundali Bhagya is sure to have a good run in the New Year too.

Kumkum Bhagya: This long-running Zee TV show produced by Balaji Telefilms saw the younger generation actors take full charge of the story and the drama. The complications in the love story of Ranbir and Prachi, played by Krishna Kaul and Mugdha Chaphekar kept viewers engrossed. The show though has seen its downs, has managed to sustain really well and remains stable.

Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Mein: This is one show that managed to survive a huge storm is what we can say. The show produced by Cockrow and Shaika Entertainment saw a lot of twists and turns happening in the track. We saw the happy union of Virat and Sai, which was soon followed by their separation and a small leap with kids taking centre stage. The love triangle between Virat (Neil Bhatt), Sai (Ayesha Singh) and Pakhi (Aishwarya Sharma) grew complex with Virat and Pakhi’s marriage after Sai went out of Virat’s life. The show was subjected to boos and ridicules for the plot twists, but it managed to do really well. This is why we said, it managed to weather the storm. Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin was the only show that gave Anupamaa a run for its money, securing the #1 slot on few occasions.

Maddam Sir: Maddam Sir the show on Sony SAB has been a revelation of sorts, with it doing well in the year 2022. The year marked to be a biggie for the show with it completing 700 episodes. Growing stronger by the day, this show heralded by actors Gulki Joshi, Yukti Kapoor, Sonali Pandit Nayak etc has all the momentum to carry forward its good march in 2023.

Naagin 6: This Colors weekend band show produced by Balaji Telefilms that dwell on the supernatural and fantasy elements started with a good run. Bigg Boss winner Tejasswi Prakash playing the lead was the best thing that could have happened to this popular franchise. The cult show in its last two seasons had not delivered to its expectations. And this made this Season 6 very crucial in terms of its longevity. And Naagin 6 delivered really well. The show has grown in the minds of the masses and even now, when it is supposed to end, Naagin 6 has been served yet another extension.

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah: Yet another year went by with no signs of Dayaben’s return. However, this long-running Sony SAB show produced by Neela Telefilms continued to do well. The show had some testing times with many replacements for established characters happening. But the maker and channel handled them really well. Out went Shailesh Lodha from the role of Taarak Mehta. The prestigious show fell into the lap of Sachin Shroff. Having said this, though there has been a dip in ratings, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has on the whole managed to sustain well.

Udaariyaan: This popular Colors show produced by Dreamiyata Entertainment saw heavy-duty drama in 2022. The loved Jodi of Fateh (Ankit Gupta) and Tejo (Priyanka Chaudhary) had their own ups and downs, but finally united. However, the show saw their tragic death after which the story plot shifted to the next generation. The show now deals with the journey and life of Nehmat, daughter of Fateh and Tejo. The new generation plot has sustained well and is going good.

Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai: This long-running Star Plus show produced by Rajan Shahi’s Director’s Kut grew stronger by the day, with the third generation actors taking the plot further ahead this year. Harshad Chopda, Pranali Rathod and a new bunch of actors got famous and took the mantle ahead. The love story of Abhimanyu and Akshara grew in the viewers’ minds. They cried in their pain and were happy at their happiness. The show took a few small generation leaps in 2022, which has placed the story plot interestingly poised.
