Her biggest break as a host happened in the early 90s when she hosted “’Sang Linggo nAPO Sila,” which was immediately followed by “Magandang Tanghali Bayan.”

She also appeared on television with her role as Amelia in the long-running sitcom “Palibhasa Lalaki” as one of her most memorable roles.

Amy currently hosts the musical game show “The Singing Bee” every weekend alongside Roderick Paulate.

ABS-CBN Dominates National TV Ratings in November!

More Filipino households across urban and rural homes nationwide tuned in to the top-caliber programs produced by ABS-CBN Corporation this November, scoring an average audience share of 44%, or 11 points ahead of GMA’s audience share of 33%, based on recent data from Kantar Media.

ABSNovember

Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes that represent 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population, while the other ratings data supplier AGB Nielsen reportedly has only 1,980 homes based solely in urban areas that represent only 57% of the Philippine TV viewing population.

Data showed that ABS-CBN maintained its primetime (6PM-12MN) supremacy with an average audience share of 48%, or 16 points higher than GMA’s 32%. The strong performance was driven by the network’s quality line-up of drama teleseryes, including the number one most watched program “Honesto” with an average national TV rating of 28.9%.

ABS-CBN Primetime Bida also ruled in other key territories such as Balance Luzon (areas in Luzon outside Mega Manila) with an average audience share of 51% compared to GMA’s 33%; in Visayas where it recorded 65%, or more than thrice as GMA’s 20%; and in Mindanao with 62% against GMA’s 23%.

The primetime block is the most important part of the day when most Filipinos watch TV and advertisers put a larger chunk of their investment in to reach more consumers effectively.

Aside from leading in primetime, ABS-CBN also continued to beat other networks across all programming blocks.

The morning (6AM-12MN) block recorded an average audience share of 37% vs GMA’s 33%.

The early afternoon (12NN-3PM) block hit 41%, while GMA got 37%. It was driven by the noontime show “It’s Showtime,” which again overtook “Eat Bulaga” in ratings game.

ABS-CBN’s late afternoon block (3PM-6PM) scored 43%, or 11-point higher than GMA’s 32%.

“TV Patrol” remained as the most trusted TV newscast as it registered an average national TV rating of 27.5% beating again GMA’s “24 Oras” with only 17.2%. It also clinched the second spot on the top 15 list of most watched programs in the country in November.

Judy Ann Santos’ “Bet On Your Baby” (26.2%), on the other hand, climbed to the fourth spot from seventh place in the previous month.

Other programs in the top 15 produced by ABS-CBN include “Wansapanataym,” “Got To Believe,” “Annaliza,” Maalaala Mo Kaya,” “Goin’ Bulilit,” “Rated K,” “TV Patrol Weekend,” “Be Careful With My Heart,” and “ Maria Mercedes.”

Kantar Media is a leading television (TV) audience measurement provider with capabilities in gathering TV viewing data in both digital and analog platforms. It is a multinational market research group that specializes in audience measurement in more than 80 countries, has 26 TV networks, ad agencies, and pan-regional networks subscribing to its ratings services.

Korina Sanchez denies being suspended explains absence!

Korina Sanchez finally issued a statement on the rumors that she is suspended from TV Patrol!

 

The rumor started when she was not seen on “TV Patrol” since Thursday last week. The day after she was quoted as saying, “Itong si Anderson Cooper, sabi wala daw government presence sa Tacloban. Mukhang hindi niya alam ang sinasabi niya.”

The rumor was either she was suspended or asked to go on leave after netizens lambasted her for criticizing CNN journalist Anderson Cooper’s report on the absence of government presence in Tacloban City.

This is what she reportedly said on DZMM radio:

 “Marami kasing spekulasyon bakit wala ako sa studio last week. Ang spekulasyon hindi naman totoo ‘yan. Matagal na kasing naka-schedule ang ‘Rated K’ na iikot sa iba’t-ibang nasalanta ng delubyo. Ito ay trabaho.”

And they were originally scheduled for Tacloban City on Nov. 13 but they have to go to Ormoc instead:

“Pinigilan kami ng kumpanya kasi delikado daw so na-divert kami sa Ormoc. Dalawang araw kami dun.”

On returning to TV Patrol as soon as her special coverage is done:

“Tatapusin ko lang ito, babalik din ako diyan. Inaayos ko lang itong for airing namin sa darating na Sunday.”
