ABS-CBN launched three new primetime programs last night, January 28, to kick off their 55th anniversary celebration. These new programs are Kung Fu Kids, Lobo, and Palos. Although the numbers that these three ABS-CBN programs got based on the overnight ratings of AGB are quite high, they still failed to beat the strong lineup of existing GMA-7 primetime shows.

Among the three shows, Lobo topbilled by the tandem of Piolo Pascual and Angel Locsin had the best pilot showing with 27.7 percent, which is also the highest overall among ABS-CBN programs last night. Lobo finished at No. 6 while its direct competitor from GMA-7, Kamandag (starring Angel's former screen partner Richard Gutierrez), rated 33.1 percent to grab the second place overall.

The action-packed Kung Fu Kids, headlined by child stars, came up with 26.6 percent on its pilot episode to place seventh overall. Kung Fu Kids went up against Kapuso network's metal hero series Zaido, which crunched 28.9 percent rating to nab the fifth spot.

Finally, the tandem of Cesar Montano and Jake Cuenca in Palos attracted 23.6 percent to take the No. 8 position. Palos had the unfortunate position of going up against the current No. 1 show, Marimar, which stood its ground by posting a 36.8 percent rating to retain its position.

Completing the Top 10 primetime programs were Coffee Prince (31.2 percent) at No. 3; 24 Oras (30.5 percent) at No. 4; TV Patrol World (23 percent) at No. 9; and Kung Ako Ikaw (14.8 percent) at No. 10. Maging Sino Ka Man just missed the winning circle with its 13.3 percent rating.

In the daytime race, Eat Bulaga! and Daisy Siete tied at No. 1 with identical 22.8 percent rating. The new Japanese drama series Hana Yori Dango 2 premiered at second place with 18.7 percent.

Meanwhile, the last episodes of ABS-CBN's Lastikman and Patayin Sa Sindak Si Barbara last Friday, January 25, also got impressive numbers. Lastikman placed fourth overall with 30.7 percent while Patayin Sa Sindak followed at No. 5 with 28.3 percent.

Marimar was still on top with 37 percent with Coffee Prince a far second with 32.3 percent; closely followed by Kamandag with 32.2 percent.

GMA-7's game show, Whammy! Push Your Luck, also had its final episode last Friday. It posted a rating of 15.5 percent to grab the fifth spot in the daytime race, behind Daisy Siete (23.8 percent), Eat Bulaga! (20.5 percent), Maging Akin Ka Lamang (17.4 percent), and My Only Love (15.7 percent).

The TV version of Ai-Ai delas Alas's hit movie, Volta, premiered last Saturday, January 26, with 20.1 percent to grab the second spot in the daytime race behind Eat Bulaga's 26.7 percent.

In the primetime race, Bitoy's Funniest Videos once again ruled the lot with 34.8 percent; followed by Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (33.1 percent), Kakasa Ka Ba Sa Grade 5? (26.8 percent); Imbestigador (25.9 percent); and 1 vs. 100 (19.7 percent) to complete the Top 5.

ABS-CBN's primer on their three new primetime programs—Kung Fu Kids, Lobo, and Palos—placed sixth with 17.9 percent.

SOP, in the meantime, took the lead among daytime programs last Sunday, January 27 with 18.8 percent. It was followed by the rerun of GMA Films' Lovestruck with 17.9 percent. Showbiz Central ruled the battle of Sunday showbiz talks shows with 15.8 percent to take the third spot versus The Buzz's 11 percent at No. 6.

Finally, the primetime race was won again by Kap's Amazing Stories with 28 percent while Mel & Joey came in second with 27.1 percent.

mga tangang KAPUSO lang ang maniniwala d2 buti nalang KAPAMILYA ko kaya TRULY NUMBER ONE hindi naman to base sa mga kung anu-anu lang na nilalabas nilang rating! na walang basihan!

Bitter talaga ang ABSCBN fanatics. AGB is the very rating body who have proclaimed ABSCBN the number 1 network nationwide today and number 1 in Mega Manila 5 years ago.

The reason why GMA has continued to gain more viewers is because they know how to say they are number 2 when they are losing, whereas ABSCBN will do anything or invent anything to say otherwise. EX. poor signal, ratings manipulated.

Open your eyes people, ABSCBN is not invincible. Give GMA credit where credit's due.

Congrats, GMA. You are number one in Mega Manila in both AGB and TNS! Great job! No crab mentality!

Justice to Wowowee Stampede Victims!

Sa mga ABS-CBN viewers, just continue watching your favorite shows. Ang totoong dahilan ng ganyang ratings ay ang napakahinang signal ng ABS-CBN sa free TV. I know a lot of people who cannot watch ABS-CBN shows dahil wala silang cable TV. Meron sa Manila, Batangas, Laguna, and Bicol. Kami may cable, kaya tutok talaga kami sa ABS-CBN. Tuloy pinapakuwento na lang nila sa akin, o kaya pinapanood nila sa internet. So, relax. Ang ratings na 'yan is not that reliable which means Lobo lead the ABS primetime at kung patas ang situation, kapantay o higit pa siya sa Marimar. Sa mga Kapuso, no violent reactions please. Katotohanan lang po ang sinasabi ko.

Kaya mababa Ratings ng ABS-CBN dahil sa SMARTBRO. I discovered few months ago (until NOW) na kapag nakaSmartBro ka o ung kapitbahay nyo, Sobrang LALABO ang reception ng CHANNEL 2.. Kung dati nang malabo ang CHANNEL 2 lalo pa itong lalabo dahil sa SMARTBRO Antenna.. Di ko alam kung bakit ganun.. Pati Channel 4 at 5 affected.. Ung Channels 7 pataas hindi apektado. Pero kapag inun-plug na ang SmartBro Antennas sa mga kapitbahay, lumilinaw ulit. I sent an email to ABS-CBN recently about this, but they didn't respond.. Please HELP me INFORM ABS-CBN about this.

abs cbn is very desperate because lobo did not rate. The reason why they say that GMA is cheating in the ratings is because they want to impart to the viewers that if lobo did not rate is because GMA cheated. Pity on angel locsin, she went to the wrong tv station. Kudos to GMA. People did not believe on their perjured witnesses. To ABS CBN, GET LOST!!!!!

pokwang said...

ABS CBN truly sucks. they cannot accept defeat. their main ace who is angel locsin did not even fair in the ratings game. The ratings fiasco was invented by ABS in preparation for the showing of LOBo which went KAPUT! They now have the basis that if Lobo did not rate, GMA again cheated in the ratings. PITY ON ABS!!!!!!!!!! Wala na silang maisip na dahilan. STYLE NYO BULOOOOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!

fifi said...

ang mga kupal na kapamilyucks wala ng maisip na ibang alibi. talunan na e humihirit pa. Yung pandaraya diumano ng GMA ay gawa gawa lang nila para sabihin na pag natalo ang LOBO ay dinaya sila!!! Poor desperate station. You get what you deserve. harapin nyo muna yung mga namatay sa ULTRA!!!!!!!

Guys, AGB Nielsen's credibility is being BOMBARDED... Who's to blame? --- The Cheater (You know what network)!

and besides, the Mega Manila households doesn't represent the whole Philippines, its just a panel and group that gives the data.

hay naku mga kanguso kayo ang di makatanggap kc manipulated na nga ang rating dipa rin kayo maniwala eh syempre pag KAPUSO "TANGA MGA BOBLOCKS!" hahaha wawa naman kayo mandaraya na BOBO pa!

dito sa visayas GMA 7 do not exist at all, lalo na ng lumabas ang 3 new shows, kahit saan ka pumuntang bahay, ch2 ang naka-labas sa screen dahil bukod sa malinaw ang signal, maganda talaga ang mga shows, for me, personally I think people with I.Q below 70 do watch that pathetic telebabad GMA is catering for. Matapang lang yang mga kanguso dyan sa slums area ng manila pero pag d2 na sa vismin, nilalangaw naman mga shows nila...tsk tsk

sobrang pangit ng KAMANDAG. mas maganda pa ata ang LOBO eh...
Walang Quality yung show ng GME!!

Go ABS..
GMA Lang ang nagpapagulo sa industriya ng telebisyon!!!
