ABS-CBN Corporation remains to be the undisputed TV network in the country as more Filipinos in both urban and rural homes watched its programs in February, hitting an average national audience share of 45%, or a 13-point lead over GMA’s 32%, based on 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.

The network, meanwhile, continues to dominate Visayas and Mindanao scoring an average audience share of 58% in both areas vs rival’s 22% and 21%.

In the previous month, ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida (6PM-12MN) also proved to be the network’s strongest time block with an average audience share of 49%, or 19 points higher than GMA’s 30%.

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.

“Honesto” remains to be the most-watched program in the country in February and continues to rule weekday programming with a national TV rating of 32.6%. It is followed by “Wansapanataym” (30.3%), which is the number one program on weekends.

“TV Patrol” is still the most-watched newscast in the country with a national TV rating of 29.5% or more than double the rating of rival “24 Oras” with only 14.3%.

Overall, ABS-CBN swept nine out of the top ten most-watched programs in the country (click here to see the list of the Top 15 Programs nationwide for February 2014).

Posted on August 17, 2013 | 11:31 AM

Showbiz couple Luis Manzano and Jennylyn Mercado will be pitted against each other weekday mornings when their shows go head-to-head starting August 26.

Luis Manzano versus Jennylyn Mercado in weekday mornings with Anak Ko Yan hosted by Jen clashing with Luis' Minute to Win It

The new parent-kid reality show of GMA-7 Anak Ko Yan (That's My Baby), hosted by Jennylyn Mercado, will directly compete with Luis Manzano's game show Minute to Win It on ABS-CBN. The two programs will literally clash since both will be shown on the same timeslot.

Jennylyn Mercado posted on Instagram a screenshot of Luis Manzano's comment about her earlier post on the timeslot of her new show Anak Ko Yan. 

"Announcement… Dahil nag decide ang management na ipagtapat an minute to win it sa anak ko yan….Nag decide rin kami ni @mercadojenny na i unfollow ang isa’t isa at wag na muna magusap habang umeere mga show namin, hope you understand… :p hehe," Luis said.

The screenshot was captioned by Jennylyn: "Yes... Wala munang i love you, i miss you, lambingan, hug at kung ano ano pa. Di muna siguro kami rin magkikita muna at maguusap. (Pero kami [pa] rin syempre) yun lang muna sa ngayon. Hope you understand. @luckymanzano."

Jennylyn in her interviews said that she told Luis about the impending clash between their shows. She also said that they just love to joke around but both support each other no matter what. She also assured that there will be a healthy competition between them.

We will see in the coming days on who will emerge victorious between the two and their competing programs. One thing is for sure though--Jennylyn is the winner in Luis' heart.
