Five new shows debuted yesterday, February 16; three from GMA-7 and two from ABS-CBN.
From the Kapuso network, the shows that started yesterday were Sine Novela Presents Paano Ba ang Mangarap?, which reunites the team-up of Jennylyn Mercado and Mark Herras with Hero Angeles; the dubbed original Argentinian series Lalola; and the new Taiwanese romantic series Fated To Love You.
ABS-CBN, on the other hand, had the new morning talk show Ruffa and Ai hosted by Ruffa Gutierrez and Ai-Ai delas Alas, and the primetime showbiz talk show SNN: Showbiz News Ngayon, hosted by the tandem of Boy Abunda and Kris Aquino. Boy and Kris used to host the daily show Boy & Kris, which was replaced by Ruffa and Ai.
Paano Ba ang Mangarap? placed third in the daytime race on its pilot episode with 21.9 percent, behind leaders Saan Darating ang Umaga? (a whopping 28.1 percent!) and Eat Bulaga! (23.2 percent).
Lalola, which took the timeslot of the Mexicanovela Rosalinda, took the sixth spot with 14.7 percent, behind fourth-placer Daisy Siete (18 percent) and fifth-placer Wowowee (15.5 percent).
Although Ruffa and Ai failed to squeeze into the Top 10, it slightly edged out rival show SiS. The pilot episode of Ruffa and Ai got 8.8 percent while SiS posted a rating of 8.7 percent.
SNN, which acquired a 26.2 percent rating on its opening, managed to take the No. 8 spot in the primetime race where six shows reached the 30-plus mark. These are: Luna Mystika (37 percent), Ang Babaeng Hinugot Sa Aking Tadyang (33.2 percent), Gagambino (32.4 percent), May Bukas Pa (31.6 percent), 24 Oras (30.3 percent), and Tayong Dalawa (30.3 percent).
Three other Kapamilya shows occupied the rest of the Top 10: I Love Betty La Fea (No. 7), TV Patrol World (No. 9), and Pinoy Fear Factor (22.6 percent).
Overall, Kapuso shows still dominate the daytime and primetime race. Luna Mystika, Saan Darating ang Umaga? and Eat Bulaga! led the pack among weekday programs. Among weekend shows, SOP, Mel & Joey, Imbestigador and Eat Bulaga! were the top-raters
