GMA-7's newest primetime drama series, Rosalinda, has caught the attention of viewers during its pilot week. For its pilot episode last July 6, the primetime show landed on sixth place but it quickly jumped to third place on its second day.
Based on overnight data from AGB Nielsen Media Philippines, Rosalinda posted an average rating of 28.7%, two rating points higher than its rival program's 26.5% from July 6 to 10.
Viewers are now hooked on Rosalinda's story topbilled by the blossoming loveteam of Carla Abellana and Geoff Eigenmann, who play Rosalinda and Fernando Jose, respectively.
Even the program's special re-run last Sunday night dubbed, Rosalinda: First Week, First Love, posted an impressive overnight rating of 20.3%. And last Thursday, Rosalinda got its highest overnight rating of 31.9%.
Rosalinda is Carla's first project on television. Her stunning beauty has been a refreshing addition to primetime viewing. This week, the budding romance between Rosalinda and Fernando Jose continues. Will Rosalinda's scheming sister Fedra (Katrina Halili) be able to steal the wealthy Fernando Jose from her sister? And how can Valeria (Sheryl Cruz), Fernando Jose's mother, convince her son that the poor florist is not meant for him?
All these and more as the plot thickens in Rosalinda, which airs weeknights after Zorro on GMA Telebabad.
