MANILA – The Philippine’s undeniably most popular love team of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, more commonly known as “AlDub,” has yet again broke records in Twitter and TV ratings.
Eat Bulaga’s October 24 episode which aired the “Sa Tamang Panahon” (In The Right Time) much-awaited concert garnered over 41 million tweets with its official hashtag #AlDubEBTamangPanahon in micro-blogging site Twitter. It started to trend since October 23.
Prior #AlDubEBTamangPanahon, the show’s previous hashtag #AlDubEBforLove also set a record-breaking 25.6 million tweets just last month.
Aside from trending worldwide, AlDub also dominated the television as Eat Bulaga posted a 50.8 percent rating from AGB Nielsen among Mega Manila households on October 24. ABS-CBN’s daily noontime show, It’s Showtime, only got 5.4 percent rating that day.
Prior the “Sa Tamang Panahon” concert, Filipino boxing icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao’s fight versus Timothy Bradley in 2014 registered the highest ratings in television with 48.9 percent. Eat Bulaga’s October 24 episode now topped the list of highest-rated shows.
The “Sa Tamang Panahon” concert was held at the Philippine Arena – the world’s largest indoor stadium. In the show, Lola Nidora, portrayed by Wally Bayola, finally gave her blessings to Alden and Yaya Dub’s onscreen relationship.
