TNS National TV Ratings (Aug. 7-10): Darna almost steals No. 1 slot from May Bukas Pa

Marian Rivera's (left) new telefantasya, Darna, came very close to snatching the No. 1 slot in the primetime race from perennial leader May Bukas Pa, which stars child sensation Zaijian Jaranilla (right).

It was a very close fight for the primetime leadership last Monday, August 10.

GMA-7's new telefantasya Darna, starring Marian Rivera, posted a 37.5 percent rating on its pilot episode, a mere .1 percent lower than topnotcher May Bukas Pa, which generated 37.6 percent.

Darna's pilot episode which ran for over an hour went up against ABS-CBN'S May Bukas Pa and Only You. The latter program starring Angel Locsin got 32 percent to take the No. 5 spot, behind fellow Kapamilya shows TV Patrol World (35.9 percent) and Tayong Dalawa (34.9 percent).

Darna's second-place finish was able to break ABS-CBN's sweep of the Top 5 slots in the primetime race.

Occupying the rest of the Top 10 are: Boys Over Flowers (25.9 percent), 24 Oras (23.7 percent), Rosalinda (23.6 percent), The Wedding (20.4 percent), and Adik Sa 'Yo (19.3 percent).

Despite the absence of main host Willie Revillame, ABS-CBN's noontime show Wowowee maintained its No. 1 spot in the daytime race with 24.4 percent; followed by Kambal Sa Uma (20.4 percent), Eat Bulaga! (17.6 percent), Precious Hearts Romances (17.3 percent), and Kung Aagawin Mo ang Lahat Sa Akin (15.4 percent) to complete the Top 5.


Last Friday, August 7, May Bukas Pa also ruled the primetime race with 39.6 percent; followed by fellow Kapamilya shows TV Patrol World (36.9 percent), Only You (35.4 percent), Tayong Dalawa (35.1 percent), and Boys Over Flowers (27.6 percent).

The final episode of GMA-7's action series Zorro came at No. 6 with 27 percent; followed by 24 Oras (23.1 percent), The Wedding (21.9 percent), Rosalinda (20.4 percent), and Adik Sa 'Yo (18.6 percent).

Wowowee once again topped the daytime race with 24.7 percent.

Saturday viewing was ruled by Maalaala Mo Kaya (primetime) and Wowowee (daytime), while Rated K (primetime) and ASAP '09 (daytime) ruled Sunday viewing.
