AGB Mega Manila TV Ratings (Aug. 11-13): Darna soars higher

Marian Rivera as Darna and Narda. The GMA-7 telefantasya has been doing very well in the ratings game since its debut last August 10.

After the stellar showing of its pilot episode last Monday, August 10, GMA-7's newest telefantasya, Darna, soars higher in the ratings game.

After posting a 44.1 percent rating on its debut, Mars Ravelo's Darna continues to lead the primetime race with a consistent 40-plus mark.

Last Tuesday (Aug. 11), Darna's numbers dropped slightly to 42.9 percent. It quickly recovered the next day, Wednesday (Aug. 12), when Marian Rivera made her first appearance as Narda. That generated a 44.7 percent rating. Last night (Aug. 13), Darna reached its highest ratings so far, recording 46.7 percent.

Darna's consistent strong performance is being credited by observers as the big reason why other Kapuso shows also began inching up the ratings ladder.

Rosalinda in particular, starring newcomer Carla Abellana and repackaged Geoff Eigenmann, enjoyed an improved showing. The Pinoy version of the the hit Mexicanovela moved up to third place, hitting 31.6 percent, the first time it has reached the 30-plus percent mark since it debuted last July 6.

GMA-7's primetime newscast 24 Oras came in second place last Wednesday and Thursday, while ABS-CBN's Tayong Dalawa took that spot last Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the GMA-7 romantic-comedy series Adik Sa 'Yo, starring Dennis Trillo and Jolina Magdangal among others, climbed to fifth place Tuesday and Wednesday, although it dropped to No. 9 Wednesday.

The other slots in the Top 10 are being contested by ABS-CBN's TV Patrol World, May Bukas Pa, Only You, and The Wedding, and GMA-7's All My Life and Cruel Love.

The daytime race, on the other hand, is still being ruled by GMA-7's noontime show Eat Bulaga!; followed by its afternoon soaps Kung Aagawin Mo ang Lahat Sa Akin, Daisy Siete, and Ngayon at Kailanman.


ABS-CBN's campaign is being led by its noontime show Wowowee.
