‘The Boobay and Tekla Show’ gave a big ‘thank you’ to its televiewers for its high rating last Sunday; beating its time-slot competition, ‘Gandang Gabi Vice’ by a significant margin.

According to Super Tekla, one of the co-hosts, to continually give the show something fresh, they often talk with the staff and producers for new ideas for upcoming episodes. He also assures the viewers that the pressure motivates them to push the show to new boundaries.

‘Pepito Manaloto’s’ ratings are sky high this January – thanks to the loyal fans of the show! Six seasons and a re-launch after, the show is still not showing signs of going stale.
The fans have credited the show’s success to its simple storytelling and chemistry between its co-stars. The genuine friendship between the actors has made their character portrayals much more believable.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d actually believe the actors were a married couple; bantering and arguing. When it came down to the ratings, it was inevitable for Filipino televiewers to compare it to its time-slot rival show on ABS-CBN, ‘Home Sweetie Home’ which, according to netizens, across all social media platforms, felt more “scripted” when compared to ‘Pepito Manoloto.’

#VictorMagtanggolAngSimula has trended on Twitter when its pilot episode of GMA Network’s new primetime series starring Alden Richards. The Kapuso show went abuzz since the network has revealed the teasers of the said action-fantasy show.
PILOT EPISODE TV REVIEW: GMA Network’s “Victor Magtanggol” narrates the events beyond ‘Ragnarok’
The hashtags for the first and second episodes reached the top of Twitter Philippine trends, however, it seems like Victor Magtanggol has failed to beat the strong ratings of its rival FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
According to the Kantar Media, the national rating of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano is at 42.4% and Victor Magtanggol is at 20%. While the Nationwide Urban Television Audience Measurement (NUTAM) has also revealed its ratings with 14.7% for Ang Probinsyano, and 12.4 for Victor Magtanggol.
This means that Ang Probinsyano is still on the top of the game when it comes to the urban and rural ratings in the country.
Noel Ferrer stated that Victor Magtanggol is currently feeling a lot of pressure since it’s sandwiched between two winning GMA Network shows. It showed, however, that the result is not too bad as they still managed to snatch a portion of Ang Probinsyano‘s viewership.
Ratings aside, the Victor Magtanggol star Alden Richards is thankful for all the support the show has received from the viewers and his fans alike.
