MANILA — The teens edition of “The Voice of the Philippines” made a triumphant comeback over the weekend as its pilot ranked first among the most watched programs across the country.

“The Voice Teens” registered a nationwide rating of 28.9% last Saturday, February 8, while its competing show, “Daddy’s Gurl,” trailed with only 15.7%, according to Kantar Media.

The ABS-CBN program maintained a wide viewership the following night. Its national TV rating of 23.9% on Sunday placed “The Voice Teens” third in the list of biggest raters for that day.

The first two episodes of “The Voice Teens,” which saw the superstar coaches recruiting artists through the Blind Auditions, also dominated social media conversations, with its official hashtags topping Philippine trends on Twitter.

The debut saw the first use of the new “Power to Block” among the coaches. The mechanic allows each coach two opportunities each, during the Blind Auditions, to block another from recruiting an artist.

Sarah Geronimo, a frequent winner across editions of “The Voice of the Philippines,” was, as expected, the first coach to be blocked from pursuing an aspirant whose genre aligned with hers.

Of the regular, kids, and teens editions of “The Voice of the Philippines” since 2013 — a total of 8 seasons — Geronimo was on board for six of those runs. Across those six seasons, Team Sarah produced four winners.
