Kapag Nahati Ang Puso has won the ratings game against Sana Dalawa Ang Puso. Kapuso star Benjamin Alves expressed his delight over this turn of events.
For the past six months, its rival program Sana Dalawa Ang Puso has been constantly winning on its time slot beating its previous Kapuso rival shows: Ang Forever Ko’y Ikaw and My Guitar Princess.
Benjamin on the high ratings
According to Benjamin, the high ratings didn’t change the cast’s attitude towards work.
“We’re just trying to make sure na we’re telling a very good story, consistent sa characters, at nakakatuwa naman na people appreciate that. It’s really hard to really go dive into the ratings and things like that as an actor, but it’s nice you hear good news like that. The set’s atmosphere, hindi nadi-dictate ‘yung ratings for that day kung papaano kami sa set. We’re happy nonetheless, we’re happy kasi nakakapagtrabaho kami, magaan sa set, natutuwa kaming magkasama kaming lahat, almost everyday.”
“Nakakatuwa eh. Kasi, we’re in our seventh week of taping, nabubuo na, nakikilala na namin ‘yung isa’t isa, nagiging pamilya na kami. So the ratings, it’s an added bonus, it’s an added saya sa set. But nonetheless, the ratings don’t dictate our happiness and how dedicated we are. It adds to it but it doesn’t change na if we have a bad rating, ayoko na, so ganun.”
Benjamin hopes for an extension
Since they are now on the seventh week of taping, Benjamin hoped that their show will get an extension. Ang Forever Ko’y Ikaw ran for eight weeks while My Guitar Princess ended its run on its tenth week.
“Sana mabuo, sana ‘di mahati, sana mabuo. That’s the goal, to exceed the expectations. The expectations for 13 weeks, exceed that, and the expectations for me na ito si Joaquin, I want to exceed that as well. Ganun po talaga, to meet the challenges and exceed the expectations.”
