ABS-CBN’s Honesto ended its run on top of the ratings chart, according to data from AGB Nielsen Philippines from Mega Manila households from March 8 to 14, 2014.
The primetime drama series garnered an impressive 29.4% on its last episode on March 14, enough to top the top 10 list of most-watched shows on primetime.
Honesto, which stars Raikko Mateo as a boy who learns the value of honesty, constantly won in Mega Manila since it started on October 28, 2013.
But 29.4% is not the highest rating it has gotten so far. The show was able to hit the 30% and above score during its finale week.
Meanwhile, GMA-7's new primetime series Kambal Sirena failed to make a dent. Honesto beat the new Kapuso show about twin mermaids five out of five times in the same timeslot.
Last March 17, the Aljur Abrenica-Louise delos Reyes starrer Kambal Sirena was pitted against a new mermaid-themed show: Dyesebel starring Anne Curtis.

If Honesto wasn't on top of the top 10 chart, it places second to fellow Kapamilya show Got to Believe, which ended on March 7.
Ikaw Lamang—starring Coco Martin, Kim Chiu, Julia Montes, and Jake Cuenca—placed second behind Honesto on March 10, 11, 13 and 14.
(On March 12, Ikaw Lamang's rival show Carmela got higher ratings. This is the first time that Marian Rivera's primetime series beat a Kapamilya show in its timeslot.)
However, not all Kapamilya primetime shows are doing so well.
GMA-7's Rhodora X, for instance, has strengthened its lead against ABS-CBN's The Legal Wife. From March 10-14 (Monday to Friday), GMA-7’s psychological suspense melodramaconsistently beat ABS-CBN’s family drama.The two shows had a wide gap last March 13 when Jennylyn Mercado’s Rhodora X registered 21.4% while Angel Locsin’s The Legal Wife registered 17.5%.
Weekends are also good for the Kapuso Network. On Saturday, its primetime shows Magpakailanman, Celebrity Bluff and Vampire Ang Daddy Ko are on top. On Sunday, its shows Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, Pepito Manaloto and Imbestigador are the winners.
