Season 6 of KBC to air only on weekends

By Hindustan Times

Season six of Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) is barely a month away.

It was assumed that a bunch of shows from the daily primetime slot on Sony Entertainment Television (SET) would be eliminated or shuffled to make way for 60-90 minute episodes. However, an insider from SET says, “The show will now be aired on weekends (from September 7) instead of weekdays.”

“It will occupy the primetime space, which is currently taken by singing reality show, Indian Idol 6,” the source adds. There were rumours that the channel had planned to axe the 18-month-old soap, Saas Bina Sasuraal, to make space in the weekday primetime slot.
Amitabh Bachchan will be hosting KBC once again.

But it seems like SET wasn’t too keen on reshuffling the weekday lineup. KBC goes on the floors around August 15 at Film City, Goregaon.
