ABS-CBN is Most Watched TV Network in 2015

ABS-CBN ended 2015 on a high note after the network ruled nationwide ratings from January to December last year (excluding Holy Week) with an average national audience share of 43% versus GMA 7’s 36%, data from Kantar Media says.
ABS-CBN also kept a stronghold of the primetime block whole year round as it scored an average national audience share of 50% compared to rival’s 31%. This means half of the Filipino viewing population in combined urban and rural homes tuned in to the top-caliber programs offered by ABS-CBN on primetime.

The primetime block is the most important part of the day when most Filipinos watch TV and advertisers put a larger chunk of their investment in to reach more consumers effectively.

Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes that represent 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population, while the other ratings data supplier AGB Nielsen reportedly has only 1,980 homes based solely in urban areas that represent only 57% of the Philippine TV viewing population.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN shows also dominated the top 20 list of most watched programs for 2015, 19 of which were produced by the network.

Topping the list as the most watched program last year is “The Voice Kids” (41.7%) followed by “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” (38.8%), “Nathaniel” (34.6%), “Pangako Sa’Yo” (33.5%), and “MMK” (30.5%).

Having aired for over a month since it premiered last November, “Dance Kids” still managed to land on the sixth spot with an average national TV rating of 30%. It is followed by “Dream Dad” (29.9%), “Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 1” (29.8%), “Forevermore” (29.2%), and ABS-CBN’s flagship news program “TV Patrol” (28.2%) in the tenth spot.

Other programs in the top 20 are “Wansapanataym” (27.9%), “Rated K” (25.2%), “Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2” (25.1%), “Home Sweetie Home” (24.2%), “The Voice of the Philippines” (23.2%), “Pasion De Amor” (23%), “Bridges of Love” (22.2%), “Goin Bulilit” (21.4%), and “On the Wings of Love” (21.3%).

ABS-CBN also fared better than its competition in other territories such as Balance Luzon (areas in Luzon outside Mega Manila), where it scored a national average audience share of 45% versus GMA’s 36%; in Visayas with 55% versus rival’s 27%; and in Mindanao with 54% versus GMA’s 28%
