The Half Sisters (right frame) got the highest-rated finale episode of 2016 according to AGB Nielsen. Meanwhile, ABS-CBN's Tubig at Langis is the only Kapamilya program that entered the Top 10 list of highest-rated finale episodes this year.



PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) continues to look back on the most-watched locally produced drama programs in 2016, after monitoring the TV ratings of Pinoy shows.

This time, PEP presents a list of the Top 10 highest-rated pilot and finale episodes among daytime shows aired this 2016.

Daytime dramas had several timeslots: the pre-programming slot of the network's variety shows (11:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.), the afternoon block (2:30 – 5:45 p.m.), and the pre-programming slot of news programs (5:45 – 6:30 p.m.)

This list is based on TV ratings registered in Mega Manila and NUTAM from provider AGB Nielsen from January 1 until December 18, 2016.

Take note that it was only in October 2016 when AGB started sending out NUTAM (Nationwide Urban Television Audience Measurement) ratings instead of Mega Manila ratings.

Excluded from this list are Asian dramas, reality shows, and weekly drama anthologies.

PILOT EPISODES. Out of the seventeen daytime shows that premiered in 2016, nine shows from GMA made it to the Top 10 while ABS-CBN only had one.

GMA-7's Wish I May had the highest rating pilot episode for the year. The Kapuso afternoon drama that premiered on January 18 rated 17.1% accrding to AGB Nielsen's Mega Manila ratings.

Meanwhile, the only ABS-CBN show that made it to the list was the daytime child-friendly series Langit Lupa. It registered a TV rating of 12.4% for its November 28 pilot episode.
