(TV) Encantadia, Descendants Of the Sun Struggle in Nationwide Ratings

Results are out. The comparative pilot week of ABSCBN’s primetime bida versus GMA7’s telebabad now available for public consumption especially for those glued into their TV sets. Encantadia Remake finally aired with the same timeslot with the Primetime King Coco Martin’s Ang Probinsyano.


Encantadia appeared TOP Trending topic both worldwide and in Philippines on twitter on its pilot episode and registered higher compared to ABSCBN’s “Ang Probinsyano” according to AGB covering Urban Luzon. However, in a most comprehensive poppulation, Kantar Media’s Nationwide rating is telling otherwise. Ang Probinsyano recorded another 45% versus Encantadia’s below 20% mark from its pilot run. Here is the comparative AGB and Kantar Media results from Monday to Thursday.

Meanwhile, the much awaited South Korean TV series, “Descendants of the Sun” is now part of Philippine Primetime. GMA Network bought its right to televised a tagalized version of the most popular series in Asian. It debuted in Philippine primetime Television yesterday, July 25.


Descendants of The Sun ratings in South Korea is as crazy as its growing popularity. From 12.6% nationwide pilot ratings, it ballooned up to 35.3% on its finale week. However, the country’s most loved kiligserye, “Dolce Amore,” continues to rule its primetime slot amidst new rival program. According to data from Kantar Media, the ABS-CBN-produced series, topbilled by Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano, hit a national TV rating of 35% vs GMA’s “Descendants of the Sun” with only 15.5%.

Encantadia and Descendants of The Sun is GMA Network’s most popular entry to their primetime After Poor Senorita failed to keep up with Coco Martin’s Ang Probinsyano nationwide ratings. Ive been reading bad dubbing reviews from Descendants of the Sun but I think I will still watch it again. I’d like to watch it again.

  1. I thought maganda ang start ng ONCE AGAIN of JANINE GUTIERREZ and ALJUR ABRENICA, because maganda ang chemistry nila, kaya lang hindi magaling ang director. Then when the love team was just starting to heat-up, biglang pinutol ang story, biglang pinatay si Aldrin…biglang pumalit ang ENCANTADIA at DESCENDANTS OF THE SUN!…. wrong strategy for GMA! Lalong nainis ang viewers! Magaling talaga ang ABS-CBN, they give full support in every project, hindi kuripot, hindi tipid! They even resort to going abroad just to shoot some scenes, hindi rin tipid sa casting. Saan nga ba napunta yung mommy ni ALDRIN sa “ONCA AGAIN”? nawala na sya the latter part!
