Columnist Reggee Bonoan wrote in his Bandera column that a TV executive of GMA Network admitted that they have found difficult to beat Coco Martin’s “Ang Probinsyano” in rating games.
The executive claimed that its rival, “Encantadia”, is a hit in Metro Manila but is losing on nationwide ratings. Thus, this executive believes on data provided by Kantar Media.
Reggee also wrote on his column, “Kaya pala halos lahat na ng artista ng Siyete ay ipinasok na sa ‘Encantadia’ na siyang ka-tapat ng aksyon serye ni Coco Martin para mapanood din ang ibang artistang maraming fans.”
Reggee also revealed that the executive asked him: “Akala ko ba tatapusin na ang Probinsyano?” To which he replied, “Ayaw pa ng viewers at advertisers kaya extended na naman ito.”
The columnist also revealed that Coco feels happy because “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” has helped lots of actors, especially the veterans.
Meanwhile, AGB Nielsen has not yet released its full data since March 13. A leaked AGB NUTAM ratings dated March 24 shows that “Encantadia” lost to “Ang Probinsyano”.
