Maja Salvador’s TV5 series Niña Niño is extended after it fared well in the rating game. On AGB Nielsen NUTAM’s data for July 5, Niña Niño ranked 12th, with a rating of 4.8%.
As of now, this is its highest rating recorded by the show, and the first time it hit such a mark was on June 7.
Originally the drama series got slated for a season run or 13 weeks only. It premiered on April 5, 2021, on the network’s Todo Max Primetime lineup and occupied the 7:15 pm slot.
The Kapatid show’s pilot episode managed to score 1.7% based on AGB Nielsen NUTAM surveys.
While the show failed to enter the top 20 rating leaderboard, the 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, aired on the same timeslot.
As months passed by, Niña Niño continued to climb in the rating leaderboard as its viewership grew.
According to the data from AGB Nielsen NUTAM survey, Niña Niño scored 4.0% on Thursday, May 6, earning the 13th spot among the Top 20 Most-Watched Weekday Programs nationwide.
On Wednesday, May 5, the series scored 3.7%, which was ranked in 14th place.
The ratings were exceptionally higher in the month of May compared to its ratings on April 15 where it only reached 3.0%.
The series has consistently made it to AGB Nielsen NUTAM ratings’ Top 20 programs; it is no wonder why Niña Niño got extended with another season.
Salvador spilled the news via an Instagram story posted by make-up artist Randy Gabin. She and the cast are currently in their lock-in taping for the series.
“Season two!!!” Maja exclaimed in the video.
Its story revolves around Niña and Niño, who work as pickpocketers to earn money. While Niño unconsciously lays himself in the middle of the streets, Niña will be the one to steal people’s wallets.
