Babangon Ako't Dudurugin Kita inched a bit closer to scare primetime leader Dyesebel last Friday, May 30. Gathering a rating of 34.5 percent against Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes's 36.1 percent, the tandem of Yasmien Kurdi and JC de Vera almost pulled off a surprise in the Mega Manila contest.
Robin Padilla's Joaquin Bordado likewise figured strongly as shown by its 34.2 percent grade followed by GMA-7's news program 24 Oras, which collared a rating of 29.5 percent.
The Kapuso Network safely secured the Top 5 slots with Pinoy Idol sealing the deal and temporarily keeping ABS-CBN's resilient My Girl at bay. Pinoy Idol scored one of its highest ratings, 23.3 percent, good enough for No. 5.
Despite dropping to No. 6, Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson's show proved that its previous strong showing was no flash in the pan. Buoyed up considerably by its 22.8 percent rating, My Girl even edged out fellow ABS-CBN contender Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus albeit by a slim margin.
In the daytime race, afternoon drama series summoned its collective grit to push the noontime shows away from the top. Daisy Siete, Kaputol ng Isang Awit, and Magdusa Ka all figured in a tight battle for daytime supremacy with the Sexbomb Dancers emerging as the top winner.
The country's longest-running noontime show Eat Bulaga! occupied the fourth spot with a 20.4 percent rating while Willie Revillame's Wowowee wrestled the No. 6 position via its 16.9 percent rating.
Eat Bulaga, however, redeemed itself the next day, May 31, Saturday, as the trio of Tito, Vic, and Joey regained control of the weekend race by registering a 21.7 percent rating versus Wowowee's 17.2. StarTalk, on the other hand, once again took the fight out of rival Entertainment Live with a commanding 15 percent rating against the latter's 7.9 percent.
Saturday primetime belongs to Jessica Soho as her Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho bested Mike Enriquez's Imbestigador to take the No. 1 spot overall. Weekend contender Bitoy's Funniest Videos came in at third with 30.3 percent rating to boot followed by ABS-CBN's Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus, which amassed a total of 20.8 percent.
SOP once again ruled Sunday's daytime race with 16.4 percent versus ASAP '08's 13.4 percent, which is good for No. 3. The second slot was taken by Takeshi's Castle with 14.1 percent.
The new season of Your Song, featuring Angelica Panganiban, TJ Trinidad, Wendy Valdez, and Zanjoe Marudo, grabbed fourth place with 12.9 percent; followed by Kay Susan Tayo and Pinoy Idol Extra.
The first part of the month-long first anniversary of Showbiz Central beat the first part of the month-long ninth anniversary of The Buzz, 10.4 percent against 9.7 percent.
The primetime race belonged to Mel & Joey, which posted a rating of 23.8 percent. It was followed by Ful Haus (23.2 percent), All Star K (22.8 percent), Pinoy Idol (22.1 percent), and Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus (22 percent).
Yesterday, June 2, saw Dyesebel once again swimming its way to a comfortable lead against the competition. Perhaps shaken by Babangon Ako't Dudurugin Kita's brave stand last week, the legendary Filipino mermaid regained it composure to take an imposing 41 percent rating.
The heavy drama show appeared to have lost steam a bit as they slipped to No. 3 with a 30.6 percent tally behind the resurging Joaquin Bordado, which registered 36.8 percent.
Four ABS-CBN shows notched the fifth to eight spots. Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus gained momentum, securing the fifth slot via its 27 percent rating. My Girl followed with 22.8 percent while The Singing Bee and TV Patrol World scored 22.6 and 18.1 percent, respectively.
