It’s undeniably the number 1 Philippine drama series of 2012, ABS-CBN‘s Walang Hanggan is not only dominating Kantar Media TV Ratings Nationwide but also AGB Nielsen Metro Manila Household or People Ratings. Due to its high ratings, the Kapamilya network extends its supposed to be end of broadcast to October of this year. This paves way to Eula Valdes as Black Liliy’s grand entrance!
The Coco Martin–Julia Montes starrer accomplished 40% above rating nationwide by the end of June as the story peaks to its climax where Miguel played by Noni Buencamino is being chased out by Daniel (Coco Martin) as the prime suspect of Jane Montenegro’s death played by Rita Avila who undergone surgery and transform later to Jean Montenegro (Eula Valdes). The twist is ordinary and boring since viewers knew already that Jean is actually Jane. Another flaw of the drama is when Marco (Richard Gomez) was shot by a gunman which is ordered by Miguel to warn them to stop the engagement ceremoney of Marco and Emily (Dawn Zulueta) or else someone will have to die. Killing Marco is advantageous for him.
“Kung ayaw niyang magkatuluyan sina Marco at Emily eh di sana matagal na niyang pinatay si Marco. Wala naman kasi siyang mapapala in the first place, buhay man o patay si Marco. Mas beneficial pa sa kanya if patay na si Marco dahil wala ng magaganap pa na kasalan. Bukod dito, wala na ngang pakialam si Emily kay Miguel”.
The twist of Walang Hanggan (Black Lily appears) misses to sustain the remarkable high ratings from 44.3% highest rating to 36.6%! A 7.7% drop!
But even though ratings are declining, the said series remains undisputed as no. 1 Philippine TV series for 2012. It presently tackles a very controversial issue of adultery, abuse, violence and rape with lead stars Coco, Paulo Avelino and Julia Montes.
Walang Hanggan airs in ABS-CBN right after Princess and I.
