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.


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.”
