MANILA - ABS-CBN swept the list of the most watched TV programs in the Philippines in 2014, according to Kantar Media, making the Kapamilya network the far-and-away leader in nationwide ratings last year.

Leading the top 20 programs with the highest average rating during its 2014 run was "The Voice Kids" with 34.5%. The singing competition for kids and teens, which crowned 10-year-old Lyca Gairanod as winner, ran for two months until July.

Notably, all shows in the top 20 either aired in a primetime slot (between 6 p.m. to 12 midnight on weekdays) or evenings of Saturday and Sunday.

The rest of the top-five shows were primetime series -- "Honesto" (31.7%), "Dyesebel" (30.1%), "Ikaw Lamang" (28.4%) and "Got to Believe" (28.3%).

Anne Curtis starred as the titular mermaid in 'Dyesebel,' which ran for four months until July 2014. ABS-CBN

"Hawak Kamay" ranked sixth with 28.1%, followed by "Maalaala Mo Kaya" (28%), "Dream Dad" (27.7%), "The Voice of the Philippines" (27.5%), and "Wansapanataym" (27.1%).

"TV Patrol" placed 10th with an average nationwide rating of 27%. Trailing ABS-CBN's flagship newscast were "Forevermore" (26.8%), "Annaliza" (22.9%), "Rated K" (22.7%) and "The Legal Wife" (22.4%).

Completing the top 20 were "Bagito" (22.1%), "Pure Love" (21.6%), "Home Sweetime Home" (21.5%), "Mga Kwento ni Marc Logan" (21.1%) and "Two Wives" (20.9%).

The strong ratings performance of these shows bolstered ABS-CBN's lead over rival networks throughout 2014. From January to December, the Kapamilya network had an average audience share of 44% nationwide, while GMA only got 34%, and TV5, 9%.
