Two New GMA-7 Shows Debut Impressively On April 8Two new TV shows debuted on GMA-7 last April 8. According to TV ratings released by AGB Nielsen Philippines, ‘The Ryzza Mae Show’ and ‘Love and Lies’ debuted strongly in terms of audience viewership ratings over Mega Manila households. The two shows managed to beef up the ratings to favor GMA-7 in their respective time slots.
‘The Ryzza Mae Show’ aired 11:30 in the morning and served as the pre-programming of GMA-7’s top-rating noontime show ‘Eat Bulaga.’ The two shows are produced by Tape, Inc. The new 30-minute talk show puts the 7-year old Ryzza Mae Dizon as the youngest talk show host on Philippine TV these days. It took the No. 1 spot for its timeslot on that day, garnering 17.5% viewership rating against its competing ABS-CBN program ‘Minute to Win It,’ which posted a 17.1% rating. Overall, this new show was ranked as the No.3 daytime show for the same day, trailing behind ‘Be Careful with My Heart’ (23.4%) and ‘Eat Bulaga’ (20.1%), which took the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, respectively.
Meanwhile, after the successful finale of ‘Temptation of Wife’ last April 5, GMA-7 placed its bet on its latest primetime offering, ‘Love and Lies.’ The new TV drama stars Richard Gutierrez and two new leading ladies, Michelle Madrigal and Bella Padilla. It was also the more watched show on its time slot garnering TV ratings of 22.8% compared to 19% of ABS-CBN’s ‘Apoy sa Dagat’. It was the No. 4 primetime show that night, behind ABS-CBN’s ‘Ina, Kapatid, Anak’ (26.5%) and Juan dela Cruz (25.2%) and GMA-7’s ‘Mundo Mo’y Akin’ (23.7%).
Meanwhile, another new TV show failed to post impressive ratings on the same day. ABS-CBN’s new action/drama series ‘Dugong Buhay’ failed to beat the rival program on its time slot in the afternoon block (3:30 p.m.). It posted ratings of 7.2% against its rival program, GMA-7-s ‘Bukod Kang Pinagpala,’ which had a 9.6% rating.
During the same day, TV5’s controversial TV talk show ‘Face to Face’ moved to an afternoon schedule (4:30 p.m.) from its original morning slot (10:30 a.m.). It failed to rule on its new time slot as it posted ratings of 5.8% against GMA-7’s ‘Forever’ (9.6%) and ABS-CBN’s ‘Pinoy True Stories’ (5.9%).
