Fight of Zanjoe, Bela, Ria, Coney to save Heart in “My Dear Heart” draws more viewers

More viewers nationwide tuned in to and showed support for the family of Jude (Zanjoe Marudo) and Clara (Bela Padilla) with Gia (Ria Atayde) and Margaret (Coney Reyes) in “My Dear Heart” as they raced against time to save Heart (Heart Ramos) from her worsening condition, as it kept its lead in national TV ratings over its previous and new rival shows last Friday (May 26) and Monday (May 29).

The episode last Friday where Heart continued to fight her illness after her sudden breakdown garnered a national TV rating of 26.9%, while the finale episode of “Destined to Be Yours” only got 18.6%, according to data from Kantar Media across urban and rural homes.

Viewers’ intense support was also felt last Monday after Gia discovered that someone secretly poisoned her daughter, as the show hit a national TV rating of 28%, compared to the pilot episode of “My Love From the Star” (19.2%).

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 2,000 homes based in urban areas that represent only 57% of the Philippine TV viewing population.

Netizens also witnessed the thrilling scenes in the Kapamilya series and shared their praises online, making the show’s official hashtags #MDHKapitLang and #MDHSalarin trend on Twitter and garner thousands of tweets.

Meanwhile, now that Jude, Clara, Gia, and Margaret know that someone wants to put Heart’s life in danger, they will do everything to find out the truth and make the culprit pay for his sins. However, Francis (Eric Quizon) will make sure that no one finds about his plans and continues to manipulate them with his lies.

What will they do once they discover that Francis is the one behind all of this? Will they be able to save Heart before it is too late?
