The GMA Network action-drama television series ‘Cain at Abel’ aired its final episode on February 15. It was on November 19 last year when the series, top-billed by Dingdong Dantes and Dennis Trillo, started its airing on the boobtube. The big-budgeted Kapuso series was able to finish one season.
‘Cain at Abel’ is an action-family drama about two brothers, Daniel and Miguel, who grew up in two very different worlds. As children, they were separated by fate. Daniel was raised comfortably in the city by his father Miguel. On the other hand, his brother was taken by his mother who later changed his name to Elias.
They relocated to a poor fishing village where they struggled to make ends meet. Years later, Daniel and Miguel/Elias were drawn together by their mutual affections: the father who brought them apart, the mother they yearn for, and the woman they both love.
According to NUTAM, ‘Cain at Abel’ failed to win the ratings game against the leading ‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano’ series as it earned 11.6% while the latter had 17.0%. The new Kapuso series lost by 5.4% on its pilot day in TV ratings.
‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano’ earned 39.1% last Friday (Feb 15), beating the finale episode of ‘Cain at Abel’ that only recorded 15.9%. The Kapuso series landed as the 10th most watched TV program on its finale.
