TNS National TV Ratings (August 4-6): Coverage of President Aquino's funeral watched by millions

Top military men salute to the coffin of former President Cory Aquino at the steps of the Manila Cathedral before the funeral march to Manila Memorial Park.

As expected, the coverage of former President Corazon Aquino's funeral last Wednesday, August 5, was closely monitored on television by Filipinos who weren't able to make it to the funeral.

Regular programming was momentarily scrapped to give way to the coverage of the last night of President Aquino's wake and her funeral the following day.

But all went back to "normal" last Thursday, August 6, as ABS-CBN's Wowowee and May Bukas resumed their No. 1 positions.

Here are the comparative ratings of ABS-CBN and GMA-7 programs from August 4 to 6, based on the overnight ratings of Taylor Nelson Sofres (TNS) among national households:
