PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
"ABS-CBN's primetime series 100 Days to Heaven and Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin remain to be the most watched TV programs nationwide despite competition's recent changes in its primetime program line-up.
"100 Days to Heaven, topbilled by Coney Reyes, Jodi Sta. Maria, and Xyriel Manabat, still dominated its time block and beat Amaya, which moved to its new time slot last Monday (August 1).
"The story of the mean, icy, and cunning owner of a toy empire Anna Manalastas who died in a car explosion but given a second chance at earning a ticket to heaven by doing good to those she had wronged in her life remains the number one show in the country with an average TV rating of 32.3% last Monday (August 1) or almost twice the average national TV rating of Amaya (18.5%), according to Kantar Media.
"Even the finale of Captain Barbell last July 29 failed to make a dent against the high ratings of 100 Days. Kantar Media data show that 100 Days to Heaven rated 30.9%, higher than the last episode of Captain Barbell (20.7%).
"100 Days to Heaven continues to grip viewers with the latest travails of its protagonist and her allies. Anna recovers from a comatose, while Sophia (Jodi Sta. Maria) got fired from the Toy Company. Find out how the arrival of new characters, veteran actor Christopher de Leon and controversial young actor Albie Casiño affects the completion of Anna's mission.
"Meanwhile, another primetime teleserye, Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin continues to be the leader in its timeslot, beating the new offering of another TV station. It rated 24.3% last August 1 when GMA launched Time of My Life, which only rated 17.8%.
"Don't miss out on the intense last two weeks of Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin, as Alexander and Javier's final days unfold.
"Continue watching 100 Days of Heaven, weeknights after TV Patrol and Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin, weeknights after Guns and Roses at ABS-CBN's undisputed Primetime Bida."
