The Holy Week did not stop the family drama May Bukas Pa from leading the national ratings of Taylor Nelson Sofres.

Aside from topping the weekday primetime race, May Bukas Pa also topped the ratings game from Maundy Thursday (April 9) to Black Saturday (April 11) through its nightly marathon run. This inspirational drama posted the following ratings: 38.3 on Maundy Thursday, 32.6 percent on Good Friday, and 26.2 percent on Black Saturday.

These figures prove that many viewers are already addicted to May Bukas Pa because of its message of hope, love, and kindness.

Wowowee, on the other hand, is still the No. 1 weekday daytime program. The Singing Bee and the replay of ASAP '09 topped the primetime and daytime race, respectively, last Easter Sunday (April 12).
