With fresh content back on air, the channel has consolidated its leadership in PHGEC with a sharp growth from 218 GRP to 246 GRP, adding a 48% viewership gap with the nearest competition. It is evident that viewers are excited to have their favorite shows back, as the channel’s weekly reach has grown from 66 Mn to 71 Mn.
