MMK's Highest-Rating Episodes for 2017: Maricel Soriano's TV comeback breaks into Top 20

Advertisements
UPDATED on October 7, 2017: It's been a long while since Yves Flores' MMK episode took over the top spot in the list of Top 15 Highest-Rating MMK Episodes for 2017.

That was in July, and 6 more episodes followed, including the controversial Jake Zyrus' life story, but none of them managed to break out, all garnered below 30% ratings, failing to land a spot in the Top 15, or at least in the Top 20.

That 6-week streak of less than 30% rating for MMK finally ended last September 16 when it featured the story of Lola Pacing Piano, a retired teacher turned janitress.

The said episode with the title "Tungkod", which starred Ms. Chanda
Romero as Lola Pacing and new Kapamilya Aljur Abrenica (his MMK debut) as the letter-sender Anton, delivered a sterling 32.7% ratings performance based on Kantar Media national ratings survey to become one of the top-rating MMK episodes this year.

Congrats Ms. Chanda, Aljur and director Nuel Naval!

Time to update our exclusive list of Top 15 Highest-Rating MMK Episodes for 2017 to include the said September 16 episode, which amazingly is ranked 8th. I actually expanded the list to Top 20 and there you can find the Sep. 23 episode entitled "Baso", which starred the Diamond Star Maricel Soriano as her TV comeback, having 30.2% rating good for 18th spot, as well as the "Tulay" episode just last Saturday (Sep. 30) starring Jessy Mendiola ranking 12th.
