GMA-7's latest primetime series Stairway To Heaven may not have reached heaven yet when it piloted last night, September 14, but is well on its way there. The romantic-drama series generated a 33.5 percent rating to place fourth in the primetime slot, based on the latest overnight ratings of AGB Nielsen Philippines among Mega Manila households.

Stairway To Heaven's pilot episode, which ran for almost an hour, went up against ABS-CBN primetime soaps Tayong Dalawa and Dahil May Isang Ikaw. Tayong Dalawa got a higher 34.4 percent to take the third spot, while Dahil May Isang Ikaw obtained 32.6 percent to secure the fifth place.

Stairway To Heaven, starring Dingdong Dantes and Rhian Ramos, replaced the romantic-comedy series Adik Sa 'Yo, which ended last Friday, Sept. 11. It posted a rating of 34.1 percent to take the third spot in the primetime race.

Kapuso network's fantaserye, Darna, took the top spot Friday and Monday, while the primetime newscast 24 Oras came in second.
