Coco Martin still holds the primetime king bragging rights, as his "Ang Probinsyano" topped the TV ratings for this past year. 

The beloved cop drama, which has been on-air since 2015, came in first with a 38.6% average nationwide rating for the past 12 months, data from Kantar Media released Thursday showed. 

The family-friendly reality talent contests, "Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids" (35.7%) and "The Voice Teens" (34.4%), were second and third, respectively, followed closely by Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo's fantasy series, "La Luna Sangre" (33.8%). 

"TV Patrol" (31.3%) was fifth in the list, which featured only shows from the Kapamilya network. 

The sweep led to ABS-CBN being the top network for 2017, with an average audience TV rating of 46% compared to the 34% of its closest rival, GMA-7. 

The figures were based on Kantar Media's measurement, which uses a nationwide panel size of 2,610 urban and rural homes that represent 100% of the total television viewing population. 

To compare, other ratings data supplier AGB Nielsen reportedly has 2,000 homes based in urban areas that represent only 57%. 

In 2016, ABS-CBN also swept the Top 10 most watched shows with "Pangako Sa 'Yo" joining "The Voice Kids" and "Ang Probinsyano" at the summit.
