GMA-7's daytime and primetime lineup strengthened during May 31 to June 6, 2014. This according to the latest ratings data from AGB Nielsen Philippines from Mega Manila households for the given period.

Eat Bulaga! has strengthened its dominance on the daytime block. Months ago, ABS-CBN's daytime leader, Be Careful With My Heart, was able to beat the longtime noontime show occassionally.

(For instance, Be Careful With My Heart's 16.5%beat Eat Bulaga!'s 15.8% on May 9.)

But now Be Careful With My Heart's ratings are on a consistent downturn, leaving Eat Bulaga! to occupy the top spot in the daytime block.

In contrast, here are the daily ratings of Be Careful With My Heart on this given period, compared with the daily ratings from a year ago.

On weekday afternoons, GMA-7's re-airing of Jewel in the Palace is now the clear winner against ABS-CBN's The Heirs. ABS-CBN had high hopes for the drama series that stars Asian superstar Lee Min Ho--it even opened on May 26 with high enough ratings for it to be the most-watched series on the afternoon block.

Jewel in the Palace was a big hit for the Kapuso station from 2005-2006, at times getting the top slot on ratings rankings, so it may not be surprising that its replay is also getting good scores.

Another afternoon show made a mark in the ratings game. Villa Quintana's last two episodes, aired on June 5 and 6, were the second most-watched shows on daytime, only behind Eat Bulaga!

 

Villa Quintana, featuring the tandem of Elmo Magalona and Janine Gutierrez,aired for seven months (November 4, 2013 to June 6, 2014), and occassionally garnered good ratings that made it the most-watched drama on the afternoon block.

GMA-7's primetime block is also improving. On the previous week, ABS-CBN was ruling primetime with The Legal Wife, Ikaw Lamang and Dyesebel.

Now, GMA-7's new show Niño is beating Dyesebel. The religion-themed family drama beat the Anne Curtis-starrer on June 2, 3, and 6.

GMA-7's other primetime shows--My Love from the Star, 24 Oras, and The Master's Sun--are also doing well against their rivals.

Despite this development, the Kapamilya Network has continued to take two top two spots daily with The Legal Wife and Ikaw Lamang.
