Filipinos warmly welcomed the return of Angelito (JM De Guzman) on afternoon television as the premiere of “Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto” hit a national TV rating of 13.5% last Monday (July 16), beating its rival program with only 10% based on the combined urban and rural TV audience measurement data from Kantar Media.
The show also consistently beat its rival show in the succeeding days, making it a very strong contender in the afternoon block.
Viewers first followed Angelito’s struggles as a single dad in “Angelito: Batang Ama” which was the number one afternoon drama series in ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Gold. As his story continues in this new chapter, Angelito also confronts new challenges in his life as a family man.
He recently discovered that Rosalie’s dad Delfin (Al Tantay) has another family after bumping into Rodel (Aldred Gatchalian), Delfin’s son out of wedlock. Angelito has also yet to learn about Jenny (Kaye Abad) bearing his child which will surely rattle his marriage with Rosalie (Charee Pineda).
How will Angelito face all these problems? Don’t miss “Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto,” Mondays to Fridays, after “It’s Showtime” on ABS-CBN. For more updates, follow the show’s official Twitter account (@Batang_Ama) and like it on Facebook (www.facebook.com/AngelitoBatangAma).
