MANILA — ABS-CBN remained the No. 1 TV network in the Philippines at the start of a new decade, bolstered by its primetime and weekend offerings, according to data from Kantar Media.

In January 2020, the Kapamilya network registered an average audience share of 38%, ahead of GMA’s 32%.

ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida programs continued to draw a large viewership across the country. “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” (30.3%) topped the list of most watched programs, followed by “Make It With You” (27.5%) and the recently concluded “Starla” (27%).

Other Kapamilya shows that ranked in the top 10 were “TV Patrol” (24.5%), “Your Moment” (20.7%), “Maalaala Mo Kaya” (19.9%), and “Rated K: Handa Na Ba Kayo?” (19.7%).

ABS-CBN pulled away from its closest rival during the primetime block (6 p.m. to 12 midnight), where it drew an average audience share of 41% versus GMA’s 33% in January.

The Kapamilya network also led the morning (6 a.m. to 12 noon, 34% versus 27%), noontime (12 noon to 3 p.m., 37% versus 33%), and afternoon blocks (3 p.m. to 6 p.m., 39% versus 37%).
