Viewers nationwide tuned in to the highly anticipated wedding of Anton (Ian Veneracion) and Andeng (Bea Alonzo) as the episode hit a new all-time high national TV rating for “A Love to Last” last Friday (June 16) and generated buzz online.
The ‘kilig’ moments in the so-called wedding of a lifetime scored 24.3% nationwide from combined urban and rural homes compared to its rival program, which only recorded 12.8%, according to data from Kantar Media.
Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,610 urban and rural homes that represent 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population, while the other ratings data supplier AGB Nielsen reportedly has only 2,000 homes based solely in urban areas that represent only 57% of the Philippine TV viewing population.
The show’s official hashtag that night #ALTLTheWedding also topped the trending topics on Twitter as netizens expressed how Anton and Andeng’s love for each other touched and inspired them.
“Kudos to ALTL for reminding us the value of family and keeping traditions. This show is for everyone. We do learn a lot,” said Twitter user @Leanna_Yzabelle.
@conermata101, meanwhile, shared, “TonDeng wedding is such a goal. Yay, age doesn’t matter for real.”
@alovetolastfans voiced her opinion, “The wedding is so realistic and heart felt. Grabe ang kilig full of love, hands up to all who made this episode.”
As the story continues this week, watch out for the other half of the wedding as well as their reception and honeymoon. What other challenges will Anton and Andeng face as newlyweds?
