"Nationwide" and not the usual Mega Manila, ratings of primetime shows were furnished to Pilipino Star Ngayon yesterday from GMA 7 Network. In the latest ratings covered January 27 – February 2, it emerged that four out of the top six primetime shows were of the Kapamilya network.

1. Kung Fu Kids 37.1%
2. Lobo 36.3 %

3. Marimar 32.7%
4. TV Patrol World 31.6%
5. Palos 29.3%

6. Kamandag 27.8%

The ratings were based on AGB Nielsen's Nationwide Urban TV Audience Measurement (NUTAM).

In the last Mega Manila ratings dated February 4-5, GMA-7 still ruled the top 5 in primetime offerings, with "Marimar" as the overall number one show with its 40-plus ratings.

In related news, PSN also reported that ABS-CBN big boss, Gabby Lopez, was not disappointed with the supposed dismal rating performance of its newest programs, Kung Fu Kids, Lobo at Palos, according to a TV executive.

The TV executive, who refused to be named, also said that even if detractors of "Lobo" star Angel Locsin continue to say that "Lobo" has not been rating, the upcoming three TV commercials of the controversial actress are going prove otherwise.

The TVCs are sure to surprise fans because they will partner Angel with other leading men, added the TV exec.

As for the latest ratings, the TV exec said that AGB Nielsen has stopped giving them ratings.


Dinagsa ng napakara-ming tao ang motorcade ng Team Kapamilya featuring the cast of Kung Fu Kids, Palos (lead by Jake Cuenca and Bangs Garcia) at Lobo with no less, Piolo Pascual and Angel Locsin noong Huwebes ng umaga sa mismong selebrasyon ng Chinese New Year.

Maaga pa lang ay nasa Binondo na ang cast ng tatlong programa para maki-saya sa mga nag-aabang sa kanilang parade. Bandang 10 a.m. nang magsi-mulang umusad ang sinasakyang float ng mga artista. Pero, hindi pa man nagsisimula ang parada ay na-pakakapal na ng tao sa da-an.

Nakasakay kami sa float ng Lobo with Piolo and Angel kaya kitang-kita naming kung gaano kaiinit ang pagtanggap ng mga Chinoy at ka-puwa Pilipino sa mga bida ng Lobo.

In fact, Lyka at Noah ang tawag ni-la kay Piolo at Angel. Ito ang mga karakter na ginagampanan ng da-lawa sa Lobo.

Walang sawang ku-maway at nakipagkamay sina Piolo at Angel sa fans. Nagpakuha rin sila ng pictures sa ibang fans na umaga pa lang ay nag-aabang na sa kanila. Ang lakas-lakas pala talaga sa fans nina Piolo at Angel. Imagine, kahit mga lalaki ay sinisigawan si Piolo ng "I love you, Piolo".
