Kris Bernal (in photo) was cast as a mangkukulam in the July 12 episode of Magpakailanman.

GMA-7 is still the choice network during the weekends. This is based on ratings data from AGB Nielsen Philippines from Mega Manila households for July 11 to 13.

GMA-7 has a lot more better-rating shows than ABS-CBN does during the given period. For instance, the Kapamilya channel only had three shows that won its timeslots for July 11: The Singing Bee, Pure Love and Banana Nite.

The Kapuso station's shows also placed first on the top ten lists for daytime and primetime.

Eat Bulaga! was the most-watched show for Saturday daytime. The July 12 episode featured the grand finals of Little Miss Philippines 2014, where Allyza Imatong, a six-year-old girl from Montalban, Rizal, took home the crown.

Magpakailanman topped Saturday primetime with 30.4%. The episode featured Kris Bernal as a witch on a vengeance plot. The high rating is also the highest score any show earned for July 11 to 13.

The replay episode for GMA-7's primetime show My Destiny was the highest-rating show for Sunday daytime, with 13.4%. The light-hearted drama series stars Tom Rodriguez, Carla Abellana and Rhian Ramos.

ABS-CBN's only triumph for the weekend was The Voice Kids, which topped Sunday primetime with 27.5%. The episode featured the battle rounds and sing offs of the contestants under coach Sarah Geronimo's wing.
