The primetime series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano continues to mark new records in national TV ratings as more viewers nationwide get hooked on the journey of the policemen Cardo (Coco Martin).
Almost half of the households in the country tuned in to the Kapamilya primetime series last Tuesday (Feb. 2) and the show hit yet another all-time high national TV rating of 46.7 percent, a solid 30 point-lead versus GMA 7’s Little Nanay with only 16.9 percent, according to data from Kantar Media.
The episode, which set the highest national TV rating for 2016, broke the record held by another Probinsyano episode last Monday (Feb 1) that registered a rating of 45.9 percent.
It also marked the end of Cardo’s mission, which forced him to transform into Paloma, a seductive lady who used her beauty to lure the members of the syndicate. The appeal of Paloma did not only entice her enemies, but also the show’s viewers. Paloma also became viral as photos of her circulated online, and her character easily became a household name.
With the success of his action-series, Coco Martin continues to live up to his title as the Philippine’s Primetime King. But Coco does not only reign on television, because Beauty and the Bestie is now the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time with a total earnings of P528 million, according to Star Cinema.
Now that his mission as Paloma ends, Cardo is set for another mission as a new character joins the series. Who playsis this new? Will he or she be an ally or an enemy?
