It seems ABS-CBN’s partnership with TV5 and A2Z started to bear fruits.
With the recent collaboration between the Kapatid and Kapamilya network, ABS-CBN shows particularly the primetime bida teleseryes are slowly but surely gaining traction and climbing on the weekday rating board.
FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano which previously ranks in the 10th-11th position has moved up to the 6th-8th rank. Based on the latest numbers from AGB Nielsen NUTAM survey on Friday, March 26, the Coco Martin-led action-drama teleserye scored 9.2% rating placing it in the number 6 spot.
That is FPJAP’s 2nd highest rating for the week of March 22-26 which at 8.7% on Monday (March 22), 9.0% on Wednesday (March 24), and its highest, 9.4% on Thursday (March 25).
Aside from FPJAP, ABS-CBN’s latest inspirational teleserye Huwag Kang Mangamba also showed promise in the ratings game.
The new teleserye led by the Gold Squad of Andrea Brillantes, Kyle Echarri, Francine Diaz, and Seth Fedelin debuts strong on Monday, March 22.
HKM’s pilot episode scored 6.0% rating almost double of its predecessor Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin’s average ratings of 3-4%.
Since then HKM’s rating continues to rise while its rival Kapuso program moves downward.
On its 3rd day (March 24) HKM rose by 2.2 percentage points to 8.2% ratings which translates to a 36% increase from its pilot ratings. Its Kapuso rival I Can See You, on the other hand, slide down to 15.1% or a decrease of 1 percentage point or 6.2% from its pilot ratings.
On Thursday, March 25 HKM rose again by 0.1 points to 8.3% while I Can See You went downwards at 14.4%, slashing 0.7 percentage points from its previous rating.
However, while Kapamilya shows are getting on the rating game during weekdays, their weekend programming still struggles.
Based on Saturday, March 27 rating data from AGB Nielsen, only Your Face Sounds Familiar and Maalaala Mo Kaya entered the top 20. The two however still failed to enter the top 10 rankings as it settled in 13th and 14th position respectively.
YFSF scored 4.0% combined ratings while MMK had a combined ratings score of 3.8%
ABS-CBN weekend programs have yet to be simulcast on TV5 as it currently being broadcasted only via Kapamilya Channel and A2Z Channel 11.
