While technically speaking, ALDUB‘s first teleserye “Destined To Be Yours” was slightly above rival show, My Dear Heart, the numbers are truly not that impressive. Considering this is the supposed phenomenal love team’s 1st show on Primetime, the expectations were high and their fans surely boasted it will break all records. The ratings on the other hand says otherwise.
The ratings tied on Monday March 6th with both shows getting 20.2%, DTBY bounced back on Tuesday with a .9 lead then .1 on Wednesday.
Thursday’s ratings showed My Dear Heart taking over the lead with 21.9 versus 20.7 for DTBY.
Their loyal fans have pretty much blamed everyone as the culprits. From the time slot(which BTW is the best one on TV) to Encantadia to Encantadia’s airtime, to AGB allegedly being paid why God knows who, to GMA Network, to lack of promo which couldn’t be farther from the truth, to Kapuso King Dingdong Dantes and Queen Marian Rivera(even though they’re not even part of the show). What they’ve neglected to blame though are their actions prior to DTBY premiere, the wattpad-like storyline, the similarities to Kalyeserye, the acting from the leading lady as well as Alden whom we all know can deliver so much more but I suspect has no choice but to tone it down to minimize the obvious, and the HD resolution showing huge contrast between the female lead and the supporting cast. But you know, they don’t care basta kiniKILIG sila.
