AGB Mega Manila TV Ratings (June 30-July 2): Kapamilya Primetime Shows Conquer Mega Manila TV Ratings
Last June 30 to July 2, two ABS-CBN shows occupied the top slot in the primetime race: Tayong Dalawa (June 30 and July 2) and May Bukas Pa (July 1). This is based on the latest overnight ratings conducted by AGB Nielsen Philippines among Mega Manila households.
Although the Top 10 is equally divided between ABS-CBN and GMA-7 with five shows apiece, the Kapamilya network has two or three shows in the Top 5: Tayong Dalawa, May Bukas Pa, and Only You.
GMA-7's Zorro, which usually tops the primetime race, slipped to second place Tuesday (June 30) and Thursday (July), and even dropped to No. 6 Wednesday (July 1).
Totoy Bato and 24 Oras still give a very good fight for the Kapuso network.
Other slots are being contested by GMA-7's Adik Sa 'Yo and All My Life, and ABS-CBN's TV Patrol World and The Wedding.
Overall, GMA-7 still leads ABS-CBN in terms of channel ratings. Last June 30, GMA-7 had 17 percent compared to ABS-CBN's 14.2 percent; last July 1, GMA-7 averaged 16.6 percent against ABS-CBN's 13.4 percent; and yesterday (July 2), GMA-7 got 17.5 percent vs. ABS-CBN's 13.9 percent.
