TV5 has opened two new shows this week, Maja Salvador‘s Nina Niño and the comeback of TV5’s original singing contest Sing Galing.
The two Kapatid shows’ pilot episodes managed to score 1.7% for Nina Niño and 1.5% for Sing Galing based on AGB Nielsen NUTAM survey’s latest date.
While the two shows failed to enter the top 20 rating leaderboard, their rating numbers are still considered fair given TV5’s still limited reach having only 16 total combined owned and affiliate stations nationwide for both analog and digital.
Also, it goes head-to-head with GMA Network’s top-rating newscast 24 Oras being aired on the same timeslot.
Meanwhile, in its pilot episode, Nina Niño opened with Nina (Salvador) and Niño (Noel Comia) doing their modus-operandi to steal money from unsuspecting people.
Nina and Niño work as pickpocketers to earn money. While Niño unconsciously lays himself in the middle of the streets, while Nina will be the one to steal people’s wallets.
The pilot also backtracked to Nina’s past, showing her and her family’s life that resulted in their current situation.
Nina Niño is produced by Spring Films, CS Studios, and Cignal Entertainment.
Sing Galing‘s premiere episode, on the other hand, opened with their host Randy Santiago, K Brosas, and Donita Nose, and judges Ronnie Liang, Jessa Zaragosa, and Rey Valeradoing full production numbers.
