TV Ratings Race
The Amazing race on Philippine television have it again now what’s on the neck to neck competition is ABS-CBN‘s TV Patrol and TV5 Willing Willie. For the difference on the TV ratings of these two TV shows is just a decimal point away from one another. Thus, to keep the respective shows going into the peak of the pyramid, each respective shows added enhancement or gave touch of reformats and brand news to watch for.
On ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol, ABS-CBN channel 2 have to shelve out two famous news anchors Julius Babao and Ms. Karen Davila from the show and replace them with another two famous news anchor that ABS-CBN channel 2 believe could enhance or improve TV Patrol’s ratings against the new TV5 show Willing Willie that is eating the audience share of TV Patrol. The new news anchor ABS-CBN channel 2 have put into the show are the former news anchor of TV Patrol namely, former Philippine vice-president Noli de Castro and Ms. Korina Sanchez, with a leap of faith that these two former TV Patrol news anchors could bring back the former glory of the news show and able to climb high away from TV5’s Willing Willie in the TV ratings.
Meanwhile, on the camp of TV5,the management of the show Willing Willie have added former romantic mate of his Excellency PNoy, Shalani Soledad as the co-host of Mr. Willie Revillame, as Willie Revillame himself personally requested and choose to be his co-host on the show.
The inclusion of Shalani Soledad on the show is surely sparks additional public curiosity on the new show, which indeed could drives greater viewership that elevate the new show ahead on top of the TV rating race and which could topple down former champions of the Philippine TV ratings.
Whoever wins in this another amazing race in TV ratings on the Philippine television, let us just hope that the management of the two respective shows should not only concentrate on how they could entertain and inform More with beyond mediocre, their fellow Filipinos who gave trust on their shows which in return boost their TV ratings and earn them revenues.
By the way, Mr. Willie Revillame of TV5 Willing Willie, Ms. Mel Chiangco and Ms. Pia Guanio of GMA 7 24 Oras were actually former talents of ABS-CBN channel 2 and owe their enjoyed popularity today because of ABS-CBN influence on their career; now it is ironic that these people compete with their mother (ABS-CBN) who nurture and gave them success.
