Survivor Philippines makes impressive debut

September 16, 2008 4:27pm
Two new shows went head to head last night, September 15: GMA-7's reality series Survivor Philippines and ABS-CBN's drama series Kahit Isang Saglit.

Survivor Philippines, hosted by Paolo Bediones, premiered with an impressive 31.8 percent to grab the fourth spot in the primetime race. Kahit Isang Saglit, starring Jericho Rosales and Malaysian actress Carmen Soo, debuted with a modest 22 percent; but it missed the Top 10 by placing 11th behind My Husband's Woman's 22.7 percent.

Aside from Survivor Philippines and My Husband's Woman, four other Kapuso shows made it to the Top 10: Dyesebel (No. 1), Codename: Asero (No. 2), Ako Si Kim Samsoon (No. 3), and 24 Oras (No. 5).

The rest of the Top were occupied by ABS-CBN shows: I Love Betty La Fea, TV Patrol World, Iisa Pa Lamang, and Dyosa.

Eat Bulaga! grabbed the top spot in the daytime race by hauling a rating of 23 percent; followed by Una Kang Naging Akin (21 percent), Wowowee (19.6 percent), Gaano Kadalas ang Minsan (19.5 percent), and Daisy Siete (18.9 percent).

The two-night finale of Pinoy Dream Academy (PDA), on the other hand, reigned supreme last weekend, September 13 and 14, topping the primetime race for two consecutive nights. PDA's Performance Night last Saturday raked in 31.8 percent while its Awards Night—where Laarni Lozada was declared the Grand Star Dreamer—the following night, Sunday, amassed a total of 36.1 percent.

The Performance Night of PDA was followed by four GMA-7 shows: Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (28.6 percent), Bitoy's Funniest Videos (28.6 percent), Imbestigador (27.3 percent), and Celebrity Duets (24.1 percent).

Completing the rest of the Top 10 were Maalaala Mo Kaya, Varga, XXX, Nuts Entertainment, and Sine Totoo.

Coming in second after the Awards Night of PDA is Tok! Tok! Tok! Isang Milyon Pasok with 26.6 percent; followed by Kap's Amazing Stories (25.3 percent), Goin' Bulilit (25 percent), and Mel & Joey (22.5 percent).

In the daytime race, ASAP '08 took the lead once again from SOP; 17.9 percent versus 16.5 percent.

In the battle of Sunday showbiz talk shows, The Buzz prevailed with 11.7 percent against Showbiz Central's 10.5 percent.

With ABS-CBN getting the top spots for both daytime and primetime, the Kapamilya network also edged out GMA-7 for the total audience share of the day, 15.7 percent versus 14.2 percent.

Eat Bulaga! topped the daytime race last Saturday with 23.1 percent; followed by Pinoy Records (20.4 percent), Wish Ko Lang (18.9 percent), Wowowee (18.6 percent), and Startalk (14.2 percent).

The longest-running noontime show also led all daytime programs last Friday, September 12, with 23.5 percent. It was followed by three Kapuso afternoon soaps: Gaano Kadalas ang Minsan (21.5 percent), Daisy Siete (20.5 percent), and Una Kang Naging Akin (20.4 percent). Completing the Top 5 is Wowowee with 17.5 percent.

Dyesebel, on the other hand, ruled the primetime race with a high 41.8 percent; closely followed by Codename: Asero with 39.9 percent. Completing the Top 5 are other Kapuso shows: Ako Si Kim Samsoon, 24 Oras, and My Husband's Woman.
