Marimar and Zaido both reached unprecedented heights in their respective primetime campaign. Last Tuesday, October 23, Marimar stepped on the gas further as it accelerated to its strongest showing to date, with a 47.9 percent rating.
Zaido also raced to its most impressive showing since its debut last September 24. Placing second behind Marimar, the Pinoy metal hero series amassed a 40 percent clip, keeping pace with the primetime leader.
Although their ratings dropped last Wednesday (Oct. 24) and Thursday (Oct. 25), Marimar and Zaido maintained their top two positions, along with perennial third placer 24 Oras.
While TV Patrol World placed fourth Tuesday and Wednesday, it slipped to No. 7 Thursday night; Hwang Jini took the No. 4 spot instead.
ABS-CBN's reality show, Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition Season 2, continues to make its presence felt as it consistently moves to the ratings chart.
Unfortunately, this cannot be said of Lastikman, which dropped to No. 9 last Tuesday and to No. 10 Wednesday and Thursday. This may be attributed to its timeslot change, which Pangarap na Bituin is now benefiting.
The daytime contest, on the other hand, continues to show some erratic activity.
On October 23 and 24, Kung Mahawi Man ang Ulap retained the top spot with ratings of 26.1 percent (it's highest to date) and 25.3 percent, respectively. But yesterday, the Dennis Trillo-Nadine Samonte soap opera dropped to second place as Eat Bulaga zoomed back to No. 1 with 21.7 percent rating, compared to Mahawi's 20.8 percent.
The pushing and shoving was actually a good sign as it kept the race from being too predictable.
After notching the second spot overall last Tuesday, Whammy! Push Your Luck dropped to No. 7 Wednesday and to No. 5 Thursday. Its rival, Kapamilya Deal or No Deal took the fourth spot last Tuesday and Wednesday before climbing to No. 3 Thursday.
