ABS-CBN Corporation announced that it has topped TV ratings among urban and rural homes across the Philippines for the month of July. 

Data from Kantar Media reveal that ABS-CBN obtained an average national audience share of 42% for total day or a 12-point lead versus GMA’s 30%, which suffered a two-point decline in viewership last month.

In July, ABS-CBN surged ahead of its competitors in national daytime with an average audience share of 37%, higher by four points than GMA’s 33%. More notably, the country’s highest rating daytime programme Be Careful with My Heart on ABS-CBN had more viewers than GMA’s primetime shows.  

During primetime, ABS-CBN’s viewership soared to 49% or almost twice the number of households tuning to GMA that had 27% share.
