All the English news TV channels have witnessed an amazing rise in their viewership impressions this week, and the prime reason for this rise is the coronavirus outbreak and the subsequent nation lockdown for 21 days to prevent the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) TV viewership data, the most watched top Indian English news channel with highest TRP rating is Arnab Goswami's Republic TV with 1962000 impressions this week. Republic TV has been the top ranked English news channel for many months now, and it looks to be in the top position even in the coming weeks. Republic TV has always been a huge TRP earner ever since its inception two years back in May 2017.

Times Now, which was the at the top position when Arnab Goswami was the Chief Editor, has lost its top ranking in the TRP list to Republic TV. Times Now is currently placed in the 2nd position with 1375000 impressions this week, and it has been in the 2nd position for a long time now.

India Today, CNN News18 and BBC World News occupy the 3rd, 4th and 5th positions respectively in the Top 5 English News Channels TRP Ratings List. NDTV has mostly found itself hard to feature in the Top-5 list, but it does edge-out BBC World News sometimes to occupy the 5th spot.
