The comeback TV series of Angel Locsin via ABS-CBN’s “The General’s Daughter” dominated social media on Monday (January 21) night; also topping Twitter Trends on its first episode. Tagged as the Action-Drama Queen, Angel portrays a soldier trained to slay her own father, played by veteran actor Albert Martinez.
“Ngayon at Kailanman,” a family drama series, had ended its run last week with 34.7% rating on Kantar Media and 15.5% on NUTAM (GMA Network’s ratings provider) and was replaced by an action series, “The General’s Daughter,” back-to-back with the top-rating series “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.”
The competition became tougher as “The General’s Daughter” entered the prime time line up.
According to NUTAM, the pilot episode of Angel’s TV comeback had a 15.9%. GMA Network’s rival show didn’t even come close – “Onanay” only got 10.0%.
“The General’s Daughter” scored a double-digit lead against its rival show as it hit a national TV rating of 34% versus “Onanay” (14%) on Kantar Media.
With new and exciting prime-time programming, the network ratings war will surely escalate.
