MANILA -- ABS-CBN delivered all 10 of the top ten most-watched shows last March, led again by its unbeatable primetime block. 

The 41.3% average national television audience share of "Ang Probinsyano," which added a slew of new characters recently, proved to be the largest for the month, data from Kantar Media showed. 

"Pilipinas Got Talent," which airs on weekends, was the second most popular. Last month saw some amazing acts during the show's audition rounds, and the start of its live semifinals. 

"La Luna Sangre" came in third, although it only tallied two episodes last month. The Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla-starrer concluded in thrilling fashion last March 2. 

For its debut month, "Bagani," an ambitious fantaserye that tells of five individuals who found themselves handed with superpowers, landed in fourth place. 

Another new show, "The Blood Sisters," an afternoon drama starring Erich Gonzales, sneaked in the top 10 with 21.3%. 

Below is the complete list of the top 10 most-watched shows for March: 

"FPJ's "Ang Probinsyano" - 41.3%
"Pilipinas Got Talent" - 38.1%
"La Luna Sangre" - 37.2%
"Bagani" - 33.4%
"Maalaala Mo Kaya" - 31%
"TV Patrol" - 30.7%
"Wansapanataym" - 25.8%
"Home Sweetie Home" - 24.4%
"Rated K" - 23.2%
"The Blood Sisters" - 21.3%

The impressive showing gave the Kapamilya network a total average nationwide television audience share of 46%. GMA-7, ABS-CBN's closest competitor, only managed 32%. 

The figure excluded ratings during Holy Week (March 28 to March 31), when networks pause their regular programming for movie reruns and religious shows. 

It was based on a nationwide panel size of 2,610 urban and rural homes, which Kantar Media uses to represent 100% of the country's total television viewing population.
