GMA Network programs continue to dominate the rating board, after three of its Telebabad shows took the Top three most-watched weekday programs nationwide.
Based on the latest available data from AGB Nielsen NUTAM ratings from May 4 to May 5, Kapuso shows beat rivals to take the top spots of the rating leader board.
Kapuso romcom series First Yaya remained on its throne as the undisputed number 1 program. It scored 22.1% and 21.1%, respectively, beating FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano’s 9.5% and 10.0%.
The Kapuso flagship newscast 24 Oras, on the other hand, followed in second place with 17.0% and 15.9% ratings. Its main rivals are TV5’s Sing Galing and Niña Niño, which registered a rating of 2.6% and 3.7%, and 2.6% and 4.0%, respectively.
Completing the top three most-watched weekday programs is another Kapuso romcom Heartful Café, which scored 14.4% and 13.2% for the survey data period. It bested its rival Huwag Kang Mangamba, which had a rating of 8.0% and 7.5%.
However, while Kapuso shows dominated the rating leaderboard, online viewing is still ABS-CBN’s forte. A comparison between views of Kapamilya and Kapuso shows–the former remains the go-to for online viewing.
Top rater First Yaya still lagged from FPJAP, miles away. FPJAP averages almost 4 million views, while First Yaya is still at 800 to 900 thousand.
Heartful Café, on the other hand, is at below 100 thousand views, while its rival Huwag Kang Mangamba posted over 2.4 million views.
