Piolo Pascual-starrer Hawak Kamay was beaten in the ratings game during its initial episodes. This is according to the latest ratings data from AGB Nielsen Philippines among Mega Manila households for July 21-24, 2014.
ABS-CBN new family-oriented series starring Piolo Pascual, Iza Calzado, Zaijian Jaranilla and Xyriel Manabat debuted on July 21 as a replacement for Dyesebel.
Hawak Kamay's first episode registered 18.1%, making it the sixth most-watched show on primetime for that day. In contrast, GMA-7's Niño scored 22.2%, and it landed in second place.
Starring Miguel Tanfelix and David Remo, Niño would continue to beat Hawak Kamay for the remainder of the period. Niño also emerged as the No. 1 most-watched primetime show from July 22-24.
Niño wasn't GMA-7's only primetime winner. Other shows like My Destiny, 24 Oras, and Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real got better ratings than their rivals during the given period.
In fact, the only Kapamilya shows that occassionally outperformed their Kapuso counterparts are Pure Love (versus My BFF), Aquino & Abunda Tonight and Pinoy Big Brother All In (both against Secret Love).
GMA-7 is also the daytime winner, with Eat Bulaga! taking the lead daily. ABS-CBN's It's Showtime, on the other hand, only gets half of the Kapuso noontime show's ratings.
