MANILA - The much-talked about love scene between actors Jericho Rosales and Arci Muñoz which opened ABS-CBN's newest primetime drama, "Magpahanggang Wakas," proved to be a hit with viewers.
Data from Kantar Media showed the new teleserye topping rival show, the Dingdong Dantes-starrer "Alyas Robin Hood," by nearly 6 percentage points in terms of nationwide ratings. "Magpahanggang Wakas" received 25.1 percent opposite the 19.3 percent of the GMA show.
Meanwhile, other Kapamilya primetime offerings scored similar wins. Coco Martin's "Ang Probinsyano" continued its dominance over fantaserye "Encantadia," notching up 36 percent against 22.2 percent.
The new timeslot of "Till I Met You," which now airs after "Magpahanggang Wakas," didn't seem to affect the series' overall ratings. The drama topbilled by James Reid and Nadine Lustre had 16.7 percent, while rival program "Someone To Watch Over Me" got only 10.3 percent.
