A netizen uploaded a 16-second video of Judy Ann Santos agreeing to a request to switch the timeslots of Starla and FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano so the kids who want to watch the kid-friendly show can sleep early.
In addition to that, the netizen who requested for a switch in timeslots also stated that Starla provides life lessons intended for kids.
The veteran actress cheerfully responded to the netizen’s request by saying, “I know right!” In line with this, netizens are demanding that it would be best if Starla must be aired on the first prime-time slot.
One netizen said that Judy Ann’s comeback TV series should be in a kid-friendly timeslot, which has been occupied by FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano for more than four years.
According to the netizen, Starla deserves to get the first primetime slot just like May Bukas Pa, 100 Days to Heaven and Nathaniel’s timeslot.
FOR ME, Starla must be aired first before Ang Probinsyano. Little ones tend to watch the bravery of Cardo, also some issues not suited on their age level, to which they should first see how powerful children’s prayers/wishes are being portrayed in Starla. #AbsCbn

I have a feeling na Starla will also surpass Probinsyano in the ratings board. sana magswitch sila ng timeslot #StarlaStarryNight

Wala na. No reason to delay Starla's arrival sa primetime or sudden transfer to daytime. No reason na rin to let Ang Probinsyano stay in the first slot.
ABS' most logical move at this point in the post-TGD era is Starla at first slot, TKB sa second slot, AP sa third. That's it.

In fairness ha binalik na ng ABS yung child friendly and family oriented teleserye nila sa primetime thru Starla. Enough of too much violence courtesy of Ang Probinsyano #StarlaFullTrailer

As a mom myself, it should have been excellent for #Starla to be on Ang PRobinsyano timeslot! Earlier time, so kids can watch a good teleserye that children can learn something good about. @DreamscapePH

Dapat no mas una ning timeslot sa Starla kaysa sa Probinsyano. Mas child friendly gud siya.

Starla versus its rival show The Gift
In just two weeks, Judy Ann’s Starla gained 29.2% TV rating compared to Alden Richard’s The Gift with only 14.4%. With the ratings that these two rival shows have obtained last October 8 by Kantar Media, it appears the effectiveness of an inspirational show like Starla wins the heart of the viewers.
