GMA Network continues to lead rival networks across all day parts in Urban Luzon and Mega Manila

Broadcast giant GMA Network, Inc. (GMA) sustained its leadership in the viewer-rich areas of Urban Luzon and Mega Manila last April (April 21 to 30 based on overnight data), according to data from the industry’s more widely recognized ratings service provider Nielsen TV Audience Measurement.

Urban Luzon and Mega Manila respectively account for 76 and 59 percent of the total urban television households in the entire country.

In Urban Luzon, GMA registered an average total day audience share of 34 percent – ahead of ABS-CBN’s 30.3 percent by 3.7 points, and TV5’s 13.5 percent by 20.5 points.

GMA’s winning streak continues in its bailiwick Mega Manila where it scored an average total day audience share of 35.1 percent. ABS-CBN was behind by 6.6 points with 28.5 percent, while TV5 trailed farther behind by 20.8 points with only 14.3 percent.

The Kapuso Network outranked its rival stations across all dayparts (morning, afternoon and evening block) in the said areas. GMA also dominated the list of top programs in Urban Luzon and in Mega Manila, occupying 18 out of the 30 slots in both lists.

GMA’s recently concluded drama program Temptation of Wife, a Filipino adaptation of the Koreanovela of the same title, led other GMA programs in Urban Luzon and Mega Manila.

Other Kapuso shows that made it to the lists of top-performing programs are Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, which is a consistent top-rater from GMA, along with Magpakailanman, Indio, Mundo Mo’y Akin, 24 Oras, Imbestigador, Eat Bulaga, Celebrity Bluff and Bubble Gang.

Also in the list for Urban Luzon and Mega Manila are Vampire Ang Daddy Ko, The Greatest Love, Pepito Manaloto: Ang Tunay na Kuwento, Smile Dong Hae and Kapuso Movie Festival.

New GMA programs Love and Lies, Queen and I, and Ryzza Mae Show also earned high marks as these occupied top spots in Urban Luzon and Mega Manila.

  1. im not a kapuso nor a kapamilya….. but i dont think this information is accurate…. i have lots of friends from all walks of life…. so i dont think this is true…..

  2. wow 18 out of 30 in favor of gma… pero ang fact nyan: 11 out of 20 (GMA: 10, ABS: 9, TV5: 1), eh kung gawin nating out of 10…. 6 out of 10 (GMA: 6, ABS: 4)…. isa lang ibig sabihin nyan, malapit ng lamunin ng ABS ang GMA… It’s ture na number 1 talaga sila sa MEGA (and NUTAM accdg to AGB), pero the fact is dumidikit ang ABS…

  3. e bakit luzon lang ba ang nanunood ng TV….para atang walang capacity to survey ang AGB Neilsen sa buong bansa, thats why i personally trusted ang kantar because they show accurate rating through out the country, at na recognize pa kaming taga province dahil kasama kmi sa gnagawa nilang survey.

  4. hahhhahahaha napakasaya na nila(GMA’s viewers) just because of that ratings ….. yes its true that their shows are leading.. PERO yun ay MEGA MANila and URBAN LUZON L.A.N.G. hehe…..pero kung titingnan dikit lang ang laban…. pero ang tanung,,,,,,, sila lang ba ang nanunuod ? hehe me mga reginal network group pa….. at kung susumahin based from Kantar.. ABS leads…. at napakalayo ng diperensya…. hehe…. at NIELSEN ay pampalubag loob lang sa mga GMA viewers na para kahit papano eh. hindi sila madisappoint… hehehe. ge peace tayo..

  5. para magkaalaman talaga isali sana ang big three networks sa eleksyon kung sino iboto ng taong bayan,,,wala yang AGB at Kantar…taong bayan na mismo ang huhusga..hahahahaha
