GMA Network's new series Darna, which stars Marian Rivera, has quickly conquered the hearts of Filipinos, allowing it to be ranked number one in TV ratings nationwide.

Based on the National Urban Television Audience Measurement (NUTAM) data from AGB Nielsen Philippines from August 9 to 15, Darna beat all programs nationwide and took the number one spot with an average TV rating of 35.6%. Darna's audience share reached 47.3%, which translates to more than 2.7 million projected number of TV households.

The series, originally created for comics by Mars Ravelo, premiered last August 10 on GMA Telebabad. The Darna pilot episode posted a TV rating of 44% in Mega Manila. Since then, Darna has been posting more than 40% TV ratings in most days, almost double the TV ratings being generated by its competing program.

The show posted its highest TV rating in Mega Manila of 47.5% last August 18, when Narda became Darna for the first time.

Darna's story gets even more intense in its upcoming episodes as the journey of the Pinay superhero continues. This week, Darna's alter-ego, Narda, becomes the target of Impi (Mura), the evil twin of super villain Babaeng Impakta (Nadine Samonte). Babaeng Impakta managed to escape her wicked twin to be able to live normal as Roma. But Impi, who is dependent on human beings, moves from one person to another to kill people. Narda, who was almost killed by Impi, will later become friends with Roma. Roma will share her dark secret with Narda.

On the other hand, Darna discovers that aside from being the target of the super villains, she is also being pursued by ambitious and evil people. Newspaper editor Crisanto (Raymart Santiago) schemes to trap Darna using a fake hold-up scenario for his publication. Darna will also encounter a syndicate led by Shiro (Polo Ravales) when the group tries to rob a bank. In the encounter, Shiro will try to hit Darna with a bazooka!


Darna airs weeknights after 24 Oras on GMA Telebabad.
