As expected, the new noontime show of former Eat Bulaga hosts on TV5 led the rating contest on July 1, 2023.
According to the data released by Nielsen, NUTAM Overnights Data, TVJ’s E.A.T gained an 8.4% average program rating and also reached 11.86% during its peak minute.
It also reached an 8.2-M audience during its almost 3 hours of airing yesterday.
Meanwhile, E.A.T’s closest competitor, ‘It’s Showtime,’ which recently transferred to GMA Network’s GTV Channel, reached a combined of 3.94% rating.
The former show of the ‘Legit Dabarkads’ Eat Bulaga was the least-watched among the three, getting only a 2.62% rating.
Aside from getting a high rating, E.A.T also broke the record of achieving the highest number of concurrent viewers on social media for a noontime show that was recently held by ‘It;s Showtime’.
Observers already predicted that ‘E.A.T’ would lead the rating contest because of the issues that happened around them in the past several months.
However, they’re more excited about whether E.A.T would maintain the lead over their competitors, especially since TV5 has a fewer television reach than GMA Network, where two of its competitors were airing.
Netizens were also surprised that Eat Bulaga still got a decent rating, despite having two competitors at the same time.
