The continuing saga of Bella/Marimar and Sergio in the GMA-7 soap opera Marimar is still the country's most-watched TV program.


While Marimar and four other primetime Kapuso programs are comfortably safe in their positions as the Top 5 primetime shows, the slots for the rest of the Top 10 are occupied by Kapamilya shows, but with some movements.

Marimar is still the undisputed queen of primetime shows as it topped the overnight ratings from December 3 to 6, while the second to fifth slots were occupied by Kamandag, Zaido, 24 Oras, and La Vendetta, respectively.

The highest rating Marimar posted this week was 45.4 percent last Tuesday, December 4, and its lowest was on Wednesday, December 5, with 41.7 percent. The Marian Rivera-starrer's rating has never dropped below 40 percent since November 2.

The ABS-CBN soap opera Pangarap na Bituin is showing strength on its final week. After finishing seventh overall behind TV Patrol World last Monday, December 3, the musical moved to No. 6 from Tuesday until Thursday (Dec. 4 to 6). Its final episode tonight is expected to top the 28.5 percent rating it posted last night.

Starting Monday, December 10, Pangarap na Bituin will be replaced by the much-awaited Book 2 of Maging Sino Ka Man featuring a powerhouse cast led by John Lloyd Cruz, Bea Alonzo, Anne Curtis, and Sam Milby.

Meanwhile, three shows occupied the No. 1 slot in the daytime race this week.

Kapamilya, Deal or No Deal (20.1 percent) topped the race last Monday, Whammy! Push Your Luck (19.8 percent) last Tuesday, and Eat Bulaga! stole the top spot last Wednesday and yesterday by virtue of its 21 percent and 22.6 percent ratings.

The rest of the Top 10 was occupied by the same shows, except Thursday when SiS (No. 9, tied with Couple or Trouble) and Prinsesa ng Banyera (No. 10) moved into the winning circle because of a tie in second place (Daisy Siete and Deal or No Deal) and in ninth place.

Here are the top 10 daytime and primetime programs from December 3 to 6 based on the overnight ratings conducted by AGB Nielsen Philippines among Mega Manila households:
