ABS-CBN’s newest primetime drama “The Story of Us” drew strong viewership and beat its rival program in its pilot telecast Monday (Feb 29), according to data from Kantar Media.
Kim Chiu and Xian Lim’s return to primetime was warmly welcomed by viewers as “The Story of Us” garnered a national TV rating of 18.2%, compared to its rival program on GMA, “Because of You,” which only hit 14.1%. The pilot introduced viewers to the endearing Tin (Kim) and Macoy (Xian), whose friendship will be strengthened even more as they grow up and face life’s challenges together. As a kid, Tin grew up timid, longing for the affection of her mother (Zsa Zsa Padilla), who suddenly left her and her father. She found a friend in Macoy, a diligent kid who is eager to please his dad (Gardo Versoza). The pilot episodes of the Kapamilya show did not only get strong ratings but was also talked about online as the show’s official hashtag #TSOUWorldPremiere trended on Twitter.
