Stairway to Heaven continues to leave its mark in the hearts of television audiences.
Based on data from AGB Nielsen Philippines’ overnight ratings among Mega Manila households, this GMA-7 teleserye was able to beat its competitor (ABS-CBN’s Lovers in Paris) with 28.9% and 31.2% overnight ratings on Monday (October 26) and Tuesday (October 27), respectively.
Avid viewers of the show have fell in love with the characters of star-crossed lovers Cholo and Jodi played by Dingdong Dantes and Rhian Ramos.
Dingdong’s portrayal of Cholo is a big revelation in the remake. He is very convincing as the Pinoy Cholo along with his arresting good looks and impressive acting skills.
Rhian, on the other hand, shines in her own way as the Pinay Jodi. She gives a new face on the character of Jodi/Jena.
In a recent interview with PEP, Rhian happily observed that their show has been doing very well in the ratings game. "Well, ang ratings ng Stairway To Heaven ay pataas nang pataas. Sobrang grateful kaming lahat. Parang bawat araw, umaakyat.
"Maraming challenges ang nangyari, lalo na nung nag-start ang show namin. Pero ngayon, everything is okay na. Parang nagka-climb din daw sa stairway ang show. Yung trend ng show, parang stairway nga din. Sana umabot na ng heaven ang ratings namin!" she says with a laugh.
When Stairway To Heaven started airing last September 14, the show registered ratings of around 27-28 percent in Mega Manila (based on AGB Nielsen data) but lately, the show has been reaching ratings of above 30.
Meanwhile, Jean Garcia as Maita and Glaiza de Castro as Eunice show commendable acting as the contravidas of the show. Their devious characters were well executed and as the story unfolds, viewers will doubly hate the roles of Maita and Eunice as they continue to make Jena/Jodi’s life a living hell.
This week, witness how Cholo relentlessly tries to convince Jena that she is his long-lost girlfriend Jodi. But the more he spends time with Jena, the more he falls in love with her. As he tries to bring her memory back, Charlie (TJ Trinidad) and Eunice are determined not to let it happen.
How long can Charlie hide the truth from Jodi? Will Charlie and Eunice succeed in separating the two fated lovers?
Stairway to Heaven airs weeknights right after Darna on GMA Telebabad.
