Imortal finale nears, only 4 weeks away!

Imortal, which stars Angel Locsin and John Lloyd Cruz, is now down to its last 16 episodes.

As early as March, it was already being talked about that Imortal is going to end this April.

And now it's indeed happening as it's set to end on April 29, that's 4 weeks from now.

That's kinda sad.

Imortal reportedly is going off air because of declining viewership.

There may be truth to that, but 7 months on air? That's quite an achievement already.

Let's remember that Imortal was the one which paved the way for ABS-CBN to re-claim primetime supremacy in Mega Manila.

Since "Agua Bendita" ended in mid-September 2010, ABS-CBN's primetime line-up became weak and GMA had a much stronger line-up of shows led by Survivor Philippines Celebrity Showdown.

But the supremacy went back to ABS-CBN when Imortal premiered in October 4 and debuted on top spot.

AGB Mega Manila ratings, October 4, 2010:
1. Imortal (ABS-CBN) - 15.1%
2. Survivor Philippines Celebrity Showdown (GMA-7) - 13.5%
3. 24 Oras (GMA-7) - 13.3%
4. Noah (ABS-CBN) - 13.1%
5. Ilumina (GMA-7) - 12.7%

Even if a new show (Mara Clara) became part of ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida (starting in October 25), Imortal still continued to be on top.

AGB Mega Manila ratings, November 30, 2010:
1. Imortal (ABS-CBN) - 13.2%
2. 24 Oras (GMA-7) - 11.9%
3. Willing Willie (TV5) - 11.8%
4. Mara Clara (ABS-CBN) - 11.6%
5. Bantatay (GMA-7) - 11.3%

Mara Clara only dominated primetime race starting in February.

AGB Mega Manila ratings, February 1, 2010:
1. Mara Clara (ABS-CBN) - 14.8%
2. 24 Oras (GMA-7) - 12.1%
3. Imortal (ABS-CBN) - 11.7%
4. Bantatay (GMA-7) / Dwarfina (GMA-7) - 11.5%
5. The Baker King (GMA-7) - 11.1%

  1. Imortal is dabest among the telesiries. It is to sad it end is near, sayang naman because it is the best. Sana mga one yera pa sana. Ang pagbaba ng rating ay manupulated lang many people said, to bring John Lloyd down sapagkat maraming inngit lalo si boy gurang and his sis.

  2. planned na talaga that Imortal will end in April and the ratings is not a factor especially when considering its timeslot and advertisement load, it still is very much a success

  3. sad to hear kasi ito lang ang lagi kong inaabangann dito sa virginia, usa kaya malungkot talaga sana nag extend pa sila hanggang december this year or follown up teleserye uli for angel kasi bihira na naman namin sya makikita sa tv. abs cbn please make another teleserye for angel...namimiss ko talaga si lia at mateo...sana may karugtong pa ito. congrats to imortal dahil malakas ito dito sa usa. we will miss IMORTAL.

  4. If Imortal doesn't get an Emmy Nomination this year! I will Protest! It's one original classic from ABS-CBN! They can make another Chapter and its an ANGEL TRILOGY! LOVE IT!
