ABS-CBN dominates TV ratings on Urban and Rural Households this June!

ABS-CBN Corporation, the country’s largest multimedia conglomerate, dominated TV viewing in the country in June and pulled away from its rival GMA nationwide following Kantar Media’s new, expanded data that now covers rural areas across Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao.


Data from Kantar Media’s combined urban and rural TV audience measurement survey showed thatABS-CBN’s average national audience share hit 42% on total day or a ten-point lead versus GMA with 32%. ABS-CBN strengthened its performance especially in the last week of June where it obtained an average audience share of 43% from June 24-30 against GMA’s 31%.

ABS-CBN also showed a remarkable improvement on daytime (6AM to 6PM) as its afternoon series “Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo” was the top daytime weekday program from June 24-30 with an average audience share of 47% beating “Eat Bulaga” which had an average audience share of only 40% for the same period.

The Kapamilya Network also made Philippine TV history as its phenomenal drama “Walang Hanggan” topped all primetime weekday programs with a whopping 45% rating last Friday (June 29).

ABS-CBN further bolstered its undisputed leadership for the whole month of June in primetime (6PM to 12MN) when most Filipinos spend time watching TV and advertisers put their investments to reach more consumers efficiently, as it hit a whopping 51% audience share or half of the Philippine TVhouseholds tuning in to ABS-CBN and almost twice more than GMA’s audience share of 27%.

ABS-CBN continued its winning streak across other territories in primetime. In Metro Manila, ABS-CBN beat its rival with an average audience share of 37% vs GMA’s 32%. ABS-CBN also challengedGMA in Mega Manila with an audience share of 36%, slightly higher than Kapuso’s 34%.

This dominance was mainly driven by ABS-CBN’s top-caliber primetime offerings that continue to gain significant increases as more and more viewers watch them on weekday nights.

ABS-CBN registered a net income of P2.4 billion for the full year 2011, while news media reported thatGMA Network net income plummeted P1.72 billion in the same period.

Paulo Avelino Continues to Shine in ABS-CBN!

Kapamilya leading man Paulo Avelino is thankful for all the blessings he has been receiving since he made the ‘big switch’ to ABS-CBN.


From being named as one of the ‘100 Sexiest Men in the Philippines’ by a popular magazine last year, Paulo is now recognized as a full-fledged actor not only because of his phenomenal role as Nathan in the no. 1 TV program in the Philippines, “Walang Hanggan,” but also after being recognized as the best supporting actor—his first acting award–in the recent 2012 Pasado Awards for the indie film “Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa.”

According to Paulo, his first acting award drives him to improve on his craft even more. “I have to raise the bar higher in terms of acting. With the award, I am more inspired to work harder and prove my worth as an actor,” said Paulo who is set to celebrate his birthday on Sunday (May 13).

Being one of the most sought after leading men in ABS-CBN, Paulo shared that he is so happy with everything that is happening. “I never expected or aimed for popularity. I was already happy that I was given great roles to play,” Paulo said. “But I got to learn fast when I was offered with challenging roles by ABS-CBN—from ‘100 Days to Heaven’ to ‘Wansapanataym’ and ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya.’ These roles served as great preparation for my stint in ‘Walang Hanggan.”

When asked about his ‘secret to success,’ Paulo simply answered: “Hard work and a lot of prayers. Never stop believing, never stop learning, and always stay humble. Of course, I’m very thankful to the support of my network, ABS-CBN.”

Meanwhile, like Paulo’s blooming showbiz career, his character in “Walang Hanggan” continues to move the emotions of its loyal viewers, as Nathan finally shows his true personality in the story. Now that the real identity of Daniel (Coco Martin) is set to be revealed, how will Nathan accept that his greatest rival in Katerina’s (Julia Montes) heart is his own brother? Is this the beginning of a bigger rift between them? Will Nathan’s jealousy worsen his mental condition?
