AGB Mega Manila TV Ratings (April 7-13): TV specials and re-runs dominate Holy Week viewing

Marian Rivera portrayed a battered wife who became fond of Dennis Trillo's mentally challenged character in the APT special Lenten presentation Sugat ng Kahapon.

A TV-drama marathon, a romantic movie, and a movie made for television were the top choices among viewers from Maundy Thursday (April 9) to Black Saturday (April 11) when regular TV programming gave way to Holy Week offerings.

Last Maundy Thursday, ABS-CBN aired a marathon of the family drama May Bukas Pa, which is about a young boy who has a gift to heal. It posted a rating of 27.2 percent to lead all programs.

The re-run of the romantic GMA Films' movie The Promise, which starred Angel Locsin and Richard Gutierrez, grabbed the No. 1 spot last Good Friday with 28.2 percent, followed by another marathon run of May Bukas Pa (22.2 percent).

The TV special Sugat ng Kahapon, starring Marian Rivera and Dennis Trillo, was the most-watched program last Black Saturday. The said APT Lenten presentation posted a rating of 28.7 percent. This was followed by four movies—My Best Friend's Girlfriend (27.7 percent), Mulawin: The Movie (22.5 percent), Lab En Kisses (22.3 percent), and Ngayong Nandito Ka (21.5 percent).

In regular programming, Totoy Bato continues its winning streak in the weekday primetime race. Zorro slipped from second to fourth place last April 13.

Paano Ba ang Mangarap? managed to pull a victory over Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin? last Monday (April 13).

Lastly, Kap's Amazing Stories and Joey's Quirky World topped the primetime and daytime race, respectively, last Easter Sunday (April 12).
