Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho Rules Nationwide Ratings
There’s just no stopping the AlDub fever as Filipinos all over the world continue to root for the phenomenal love team of Alden Richards and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza. Shortly after posting the record-breaking 6.35 million tweets worldwide in the social networking service Twitter, the AlDub couple also dominated nationwide TV ratings last week.
Multi-awarded news magazine program Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (KMJS), which featured host Jessica Soho trying to know more about Yaya Dub, was the most watched program in the country for the week of September 7 to 13.
KMJS registered an overnight household rating of 26.7 percent, according to National Urban Television Audience Measurement (NUTAM) data from the industry’s widely trusted ratings service provider Nielsen TV Audience Measurement.
Yaya Dub, despite her fame, remains elusive to media interviews and this has roused public interest in her real identity. This prompted KMJS in its episode last Sunday to try to discover more about Yaya Dub through the stories of people close to her, her fans, and even those who were lucky enough to take selfies with her.
Alden’s life story, on the other hand, was shown in Magpakailanman last Saturday, September 12, 2015. Expectedly, the episode dominated its timeslot with an overnight household rating of 25.3 percent versus ABS-CBN’s Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK), which only managed 23.8 percent.
The episode traced the life of Alden – from his early beginnings as an actor up until he became one of the most sought-after Kapuso leading men and presently winning the hearts of millions of viewers as the ‘Pambansang Bae’ and the other half of the AlDub love team.
Relative to competition, more Kapuso programs also made it to the list of top 30 programs nationwide for the said period. Joining KMJS and Magpakailanman were Ismol Family, Eat Bulaga, Pepito Manaloto, Vampire ang Daddy Ko, Marimar, Sunday Pinasaya, and 24 Oras.
Also included in the list of most watched programs were Celebrity Bluff, 24 Oras Weekend, Karelasyon, Beautiful Strangers, Wowowin, My Faithful Husband, and The Half Sisters. /MP
