Success of 'One True Love' continues as viewers get hooked on series
June 21 2012
GMA Network's latest primetime drama, One True Love
, instantly captivated the hearts of TV audiences after posting high numbers during its pilot week, according to data from the industry's widely trusted ratings service provider Nielsen TV Audience Measurement.
Based on overnight household data recorded in Mega Manila from June 11 to 15, One True Love scored 38.4 share points, ahead of ABS-CBN's Dahil Sa Pag-ibig's 35.2 points and TV5's Runaway's 10 points. Mega Manila comprises 58 percent of total television households nationwide.
Viewers instantly fell in love with the characters of star-crossed lovers Tisoy and Elize played by Alden Richards and Louise delos Reyes. One True Love introduces Alden and Louise in their first starring roles on primetime, together with newest Kapuso Agot Isidro, Raymond Bagatsing, and Jean Garcia.
Proof to the overwhelming success and immense fame of Alden and Louise's loveteam were the thousands of screaming fans present during their recent mall show and campus tour in Cagayan de Oro and Bukidnon last June 17 and June 18.
Pandemonium broke out when Alden and Louise showed up and took the centerstage. The mere mention of their names drew ear-deafening screams and cheers from the audience who chanted "Tisoy" and "Elize", Alden and Louise's character names in the program. "Nakakataba ng puso ang naging mainit na pagtanggap sa aming lahat at masayang-masaya kami na tinatangkilik nila ang One True Love," Alden said.
The drama series is expected to set even higher ratings in the coming days especially when Tisoy (Alden) and Elize (Louise) start hanging out together and begin their special friendship. Troy (Lucho Ayala), on the other hand, despises the growing closeness between Tisoy and Elize, so he pressures Carlos (Raymond) to stop Elize from seeing Tisoy.
Will Elize follow her father's orders and end her ties with Tisoy? What will happen if Ellen (Jean Garcia) discovers the connection between Tisoy and Carlos? Will Tisoy eventually give up on Elize?
Expect more revelations and twists as the drama continues in One True Love weeknights after Makapiling Kang Muli on GMA Telebabad.
