AGB Mega Manila TV Ratings (July 3-6): Rosalinda does well, but falls short of expectations

Geoff Eigenmann and Carla Abellana are paired for the first time in GMA-7's new primetime series, Rosalinda.

Many have high expectations for the latest primetime series of GMA-7, the local adaptation of the hit Mexicanovela Rosalinda. When the original Mexicanovela series was aired on ABS-CBN, it became one of the highest-rated shows ever.

Now, in the local version of Rosalinda, the new tandem of Carla Abellana and Geoff Eigenmann take on the roles of the title character and Fernando Jose, played originally by Thalia and Fernando Carrillo.

Rosalinda premiered on Philippine television last night, July 6, with a modest 26.3 percent to rank sixth in the primetime race. This output is relatively lower compared to the pilot episodes of the Kapuso network's high-profile primetime shows; like Mulawin (33 percent), Encantadia (40 percent), Darna (47.1 percent), Captain Barbell (37.5 percent), Marimar (36.6 percent), and Dyesebel (44.9 percent).

Rosalinda's premiere episode, which ran for almost an hour, was pitted against ABS-CBN's Only You and Tayong Dalawa. Both Kapamilya programs rated higher than the new Kapuso show. But hopes are still high for Rosalinda to improve its rating as the show progresses.


GMA-7 regained the top spot in the primetime race, thanks to 24 Oras, which generated a 32.3 percent rating. ABS-CBN's Tayong Dalawa was a close second with 31.7 percent.

These were followed by Zorro (31.1 percent), May Bukas Pa (29.4 percent), and Only You (27.5 percent) to complete the Top 5.

The rest of the Top 10 was taken by the following shows: All My Life (23.5 percent), TV Patrol World (23.4 percent), Adik Sa 'Yo (23 percent), and Boys Over Flowers (21.9 percent).

Eat Bulaga! once again topped the daytime race with 24.6 percent, followed by GMA-7 afternoon soaps Kung Aagawin Mo ang Lahat Sa Akin (20 percent), Ngayon at Kailanman (18.5 percent), and Daisy Siete (17 percent).

Wowowee and Hole In The Wall tied for fifth place with an identical 14.2 percent rating.

Rosalinda replaced the timeslot of Totoy Bato, which ended last Friday, July 3. The last episode of the Robin Padilla action series topped the primetime race with 30.4 percent, followed by Tayong Dalawa (29 percent), Adik Sa 'Yo (28.3 percent), Zorro (28 percent), and May Bukas Pa (27.7 percent).


Eat Bulaga! was the runaway winner in the daytime race with 28.3 percent. Second-placer Kung Aagawin Mo ang Lahat Sa Akin only managed to get 20.8 percent.

Saturday (July 4) viewing was ruled by Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (primetime) and Eat Bulaga! (daytime).

TV5's Talentadong Pinoy moved from fourth last week to third this week after generating a rating of 24.6 percent, behind Imbestigador's 25.8 percent.

Another TV5 show, Midnight DJ, once again made it to the Top 10.

Mel & Joey and SOP again topped the primetime and daytime races last Sunday, July 5.
