PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
“THE X FACTOR PHILIPPINES BEATS RIVAL NETWORKS’ TALENT-REALITY SHOWS IN TV RATINGS. The X Factor Philippines won in national TV ratings over rival network’s newly launched talent-reality shows during the weekend making it the most-watched talent show in the land.
Based on recent urban and rural TV ratings data from Kantar Media, The X Factor Philippines scored an average national TV rating of 20.7% last Saturday (August 4) vs TV5’s Artista Academy only rated at 1.8%. GMA-7’s bet Protégé: The Battle for the Big Artista Break also fell short on its viewership and wasn’t able to beat The X Factor Philippines (16.6%) during its launch last Sunday (August 5).
"More Filipinos are definitely glued to the intense competition being served by the hit Kapamilya show especially after judge-mentor Charice bid goodbye to her first act. Jerrianne Templo, a dive guide from Mandaluyong City, got booted from the competition after judge-mentors Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, and Pilita Corrales favored to save Over 25s Joan Da, who is also at the bottom two together with Jerrianne.
"Who among the finalist will standout in this week’s performances? Who will be the next finalist falling off to the bottom 2? Whose judge’s acts will continue and who will end their journey?
"The X Factor Philippines, hosted by KC Concepcion, airs every Saturday, after Maalaala Mo Kaya and every Sunday, after Sarah G Live on ABS-CBN."
