ABS-CBN's daytime "kilig-serye" "Be Careful With My Heart" recently reached a milestone rating, as it continued its winning streak in nationwide audience share since it debuted in July to "PrimeTanghali" viewers. 

According to the latest data of Kantar Media, the Jodi Sta. Maria-starrer, during its Tuesday (August 21) episode, reached its all-time highest rating of 26.4%, registering double the ratings of "Chef Boy Logro: Kusina Master", its competing show, which only got 10.7%.

Even with a timeslot during daytime -- it airs before noontime variety program "It's Showtime" -- "Be Careful With My Heart" has also managed to beat the ratings of other primetime shows of the competing network.

Breaching 40

On primetime, "Walang Hanggan" continues to be the No. 1 most-watched series in the country.

The Coco Martin-starrer once again breached the 40 percentage-point mark, as the wedding scene of the characters of Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta aired on  Wednesday (August 22).

The episode, according to data from Kantar Media, earned a 41.9% national TV rating, compared to its rival program “Makapiling Kang Muli”, which registered only 15.3% audience share.

Dedicated viewers of "Walang Hanggan" have another major scene to look forward to in the coming week, as the character of Eula Valdez, Black Lily, exits the series.
