But while The Clash’s pilot made an impact on Twitter, it failed to capture the much larger audience; the viewers.
Based on Kantar Media numbers for September 21, The Clash Season 2‘s premiere failed to impress the viewers getting a lower rating than its rival.
The Clash only managed to register 15.8% ratings, 11.1% lower than Kapamilya rival Home Sweetie Home which got an average rating of 26.9%. It was also interesting to note that the Kapuso network avoided direct competition with ABS-CBN’s The Voice Kids which airs immediately after.
Meanwhile, NUTAM was still nowhere to be found as of this writing.
The Clash Season 2 is hosted by Rayver Cruz, Julie Anne San Jose, Ken Chan, and Rita Daniela. It airs every Saturday right after Pepito Manaloto.
