Republic TV ran a program in 2 years ago i.e. 2017 claiming to have highest viewership 61% among all News channels.

India Today Versus Republic: Who won the TRP battle?
Within its short lifespan of about a month, Republic TV and its commander-in-chief Arnab Goswami managed to ruffle quite a few feathers. The channel has been dragged to court for defamation, intellectual property theft andflouting the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India rules. While the first two cases are essentially battles between private citizens and companies — their impact on media discourse notwithstanding — it is the third case that concerns you, the viewer.
This isn’t just a battle between the National Broadcasters Association (NBA) and Republic, but a war for your attention and what comes with it — TRPs and advertisements…..
A Pakistani News channel which itself is inspired from an Indian News Channel Aaj Tak used a photoshopped image as News.
