The corporate communications department of GMA Network claims that its weekend primetime programs remained ahead of competition in Mega Manila TV ratings in September 2010. GMA-7 based this announcement on data from TV ratings supplier Nielsen TV Audience Measurement.
Seven out of the top ten weekend programs in Mega Manila for September were from GMA-7 with GMA News and Public Affairs’ Imbestigador taking the top spot with an average people rating of 12.5 points. Another GMA Public Affairs program, Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho, took second place with an average of 11.9 points.
Imbestigador is celebrating its 10th year of documenting public service/investigative stories, while Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho marks Soho’s 25th year in the broadcast industry.
GMA Entertainment TV’s original and first reality sitcom Pepito Manaloto settled at number three with 10.8 points, while Kap’s Amazing Stories came in at the fourth spot with 10.6 points.
The Kapuso Network’s report refutes TV5’s claim that Talentadong Pinoy is leading in its timeslot. According to the coporate communications department of GMA-7, Talentadong Pinoy landed at number five with an average of 10.1 points in September.
Other shows produced by GMA-7 that made it to the top 10 include Mel and Joey, 24 Oras Weekend, and Jejemom.
On Saturdays, Imbestigador and Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, which scored 12.5 points and 11.9 points, respectively, took the top two spots in the list of overall top 10 Saturday primetime programs.
TV5’s Talentadong Pinoy trailed both programs and settled at number three with 10.3 points.
On Sundays, the top two progams are also from GMA-7, led by Pepito Manaloto at number one with 10.8 points, and Kap’s Amazing Stories at number two with 10.6 points.
It is interesting to note that TV5’s Talentadong Pinoy remained at the third spot with 9.9 points.
In addition, the said report of GMA-7 also stated that the Kapuso network has led all TV channels in viewership among kids from two to 12 years old in the morning block (from 6 am to 12 nn) from August 2010 onwards. GMA-7 has also been the lead pick for programming in the afternoon block (from 12 nn to 6 pm) since April to date.
