Meanwhile, Gabi Ng Lagim’s record-breaking feat is another addition to KMJS’s numerous successes this year.
Last August, the magazine show also recorded its all-time high ratings since its premier in 2004.
Nakamit kagabi ng #KMJS ang isa sa pinakamataas nitong ratings, 18.3 PPL ratings base sa AGB Nielsen! Trending pa tayo worldwide at nationwide sa Twitter! Maraming salamat po! Aasahan po naming patuloy n’yo kaming sasaluhan sa mas marami pang makabuluhang kuwentuhan! pic.twitter.com/KXKCsNC84v

KMJS recorded 18.3% in August 4 based on AGB NUTAM People survey, their highest since February 10 where it recorded a ratings of 17.3%.
And these record-breaking feats is what keeps them doing their best but at the same time giving them so much pressure to do more, according to Jessica.
“Nakaka-pressure din kasi parang, ‘Naku! Kasama na tayo du’n sa pop culture na tinatawag.’ So it means lagi kaming dapat updated. Minsan ‘pag may mga bagong words for example, ini-incorporate namin sa mga script namin kasi it makes us more conscious na they are really watching. So we have to use these words na ginagamit din nila. Because it’s a way to better connect to them.”
“Hindi ko masabi. Kasi every week it’s a struggle to look for stories. We will take it as it counts.”
“Pag ratings lang kasi, madali ‘yun eh, ‘di ba? You just shock them. Kailangan balansehin mo rin with other stories na kapupulutan nila talaga ng aral. Hindi lang ikatutuwa, hindi lang ikasasaya, hindi lang para to move them, sometimes to shock them and to anger them. Kailangan meron din silang makuhang leksyon. So we like to balance the stories and the episodes. Importante ‘yon.”
