'Melason' loveteam boosts PBB weekday ratings

Apart from being the new primetime ruler during weekends, ABS-CBN's Pinoy Big Brother Double Up is now slowly conquering the primetime ratings race during weekdays.

According to the AGB Mega Manila Ratings released for December 28, 2009 (Monday), PBB Double Up is #1 again, beating GMA 7's "Darna" which was a consistent toprater.

PBB generated that night a ratings of 30.8% as against Darna with a very close 30.6%.

The episode shown then was the 100-second moment of Jason Francisco with her lola. It was actually a treat for the "Melason" loveteam because Melai Cantiveros was also there with Jason and his grandma.

The Top 5 primetime programs during that day were: 1. PBB Double Up (ABS-CBN) 30.8% 2. Darna (GMA) 30.6% 3. Full House (GMA) 29.7% 4. May Bukas Pa (ABS-CBN) 29.4% 5. 24 Oras (GMA) 28.9%

It's now the 5th time that PBB Double Up has ruled the primetime race in Mega Manila.


The first one was in December 8, 2009 when model Rocky Salumbides opted for a voluntary exit. The episode garnered 33.6%, which remains to be the show's highest ratings so far.

For the second time on December 22, 2009, PBB topped again with the episode showing the breakdown of Rica Paras and Sam Pinto during their Christmas Ball and of course, the romantic date of Melason loveteam on a ferris wheel.

And on December 23 and 24, when some of the households were not at home and busy for the Christmas rush, PBB managed to pull in ratings good enough for the #1 spot.

It was the time when "Super G" Annina Ucatis arrived from Germany to celebrate her birthday and Christmas with the Filipino housemates.

Dec 23 Top 5: 1. PBB Double Up (ABS-CBN) 30.7% 2. 24 Oras (GMA) 27.3% 3. Darna (GMA) 27.1% 4. May Bukas Pa (ABS-CBN) 26.8% 5. Dahil May Isang Ikaw (ABS-CBN) 26.6%

Some PBB followers are requesting if they could minimize the exposure of the Melason loveteam. According to them, Melai and Jason are not the only housemates of PBB Double Up.

But we cannot blame the people behind PBB if they continually show moments of Melason loveteam almost everyday because of the "high ratings" it draws for the show.

If I were to ask, I would love to see them everyday because of the great entertainment they bring to me. "Nakakawalang-antok" is the best word to describe them.
