‘Rated K’ bows out against ‘KMJS,’ back to its original timeslot

  • Rated K moves to an earlier timeslot.
  • Rated K celebrated the start of its 15th year anniversary by moving to a new timeslot.
  • Rated K won against its rival in their new timeslot.

After 10 years, ABS-CBN’s prime magazine show Rated K is back to its original timeslot.

Last Sunday, August 11, Rated K moved back to an earlier timeslot at 6 PM, taking over the slot previously held by Kapamilya kiddie gag show Goin’ Bulilit which ended its run last August 4.

Rated K is currently celebrating its 15 years on TV and as an opening salvo to their 15 years anniversary celebration, they went back to their timeslot from 10 years ago.

Rated K premiered in May 2004 at 5:30PM-6:30PM as a replacement to Sharon Cuneta’s talk show Sharon.  And in 2009, the show was moved to 6 PM.

Since then, Korina’s Rated K: Handa Na Ba Kayo has lorded Sunday primetime even with its several changes in timeslots.

It was not until Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho found its rhythm that it began to topple ABS-CBN’s long-reigning Sunday magazine show, Rated K.

It was in September 2018 that Rated K’s ratings started to dwindle while KMJS started to climb up to the timeslot’s throne.

Another wrong move that cemented Rated K‘s decline was the controversial Mocha Uson interview.

Korina didn’t escape the scrutiny and criticisms of netizens for her “bold” move of sitting in an interview with Uson, a known critic and fake news purveyor against her husband Mar Roxas.

The interview was met by numerous criticisms from netizens and even loyal Rated K viewers for its “inappropriateness.”

From then on, KMJS continued to top the Sunday magazine show competition against Rated K.

Renewed victory

After going back to its original timeslot last Sunday, Rated K regained its timeslot supremacy,

Based on the latest numbers from Kantar Media, Rated K’s earlier timeslot won against its Kapuso rival Amazing Earth. The Kapamilya magazine show registered nationwide ratings of 21.8%, 6.8% higher than Amazing Earth. AGB has yet to released its data.

Meanwhile, not only did Rated K won in the ratings game, the Korina Sanchez-Roxas-hosted show also swept social media trends.

Last Sunday, Rated K trended online via Twitter making it the number 1 trending topic worldwide.
