KALADKAREN DARES CELEBRITIES IN DIGITAL SHOW ON ABSCBNMOBILE.COM

Features Ogie Alcasid, John Pratts, Sue Ramirez, Andrea Brillantes, and Teddy Corpuz

Online sensation Kaladkaren gets up close and personal with celebrities, challenging them to spill their secrets while performing funny dares in her very own show, “Kikinangkinang Kasama si Kaladkaren,” on ABS-CBNmobile Exclusives.

The show features writer and producer Jervi Li as KaladKaren with ABS-CBN stars such as Ogie Alcasid, John Pratts, Sue Ramirez, Andrea Brillantes, Teddy Corpuz and JC De Vera among many others, in interviews with a twist. The show was inspired in part by Karen Davila, who is a veteran news anchor and journalist known for her in-depth interviews with high-profile personalities.

Catch celebrities Sue Ramirez showing off her hula-hoop skills, Ogie Alcasid sharing what makes his wife mad, Andrea Brillantes talking about her ultimate celebrity crush, Teddy Corpuz divulging his biggest fears, John Pratts talking about dad bods, and more, as guests gamely participating in more of KaladKaren’s challenges. Viewers can also catch up with past episodes anytime, anywhere.

New episodes of “Kikinagkinang Kasama si Kaladkaren” are uploaded on www.abscbnmobile.com/exclusives every Tuesday.

KaladKaren shares that the new show will be light, focusing on the entertainment genre as a way of spreading good vibes, especially for Filipinos stuck in the daily grind of traffic and commute.

“Since there are so many triggers these days—traffic, long commute lines, and so many different situations, we wanted to spread good vibes. We came up with the concept of interviewing famous celebrities and getting them to do challenges and show a side their fans don’t always get to see. This is also very different from a TV show in that the episodes are made short so you can finish a whole episode in 15 minutes or less,” said KaladKaren.

“This is just the start,” said KaladKaren. “We have challenges like tongue twisters while eating polvoron; “Shot up”—a Q&A with two shot glasses of patis and iced tea; on-the-spot trivia test, and more, and with all your favorite artistas. There’s so much more to come!”

The show is among the roster of new exclusive shows now available for ABS-CBNmobile subscribers. Aside from “Kikinang-kinang,” subscribers have exclusive access to shows starring celebrities like Maymay Entrata, Edward Barber, Kisses Delavin, and Marco Gallo; comedian and host Alex Gonzaga; kilig ambassadors Hashtags, and radio host Mr. Fu.

With short programs now available on abscbnmobile.com, Filipinos on-the-go have more moments to laugh, be entertained, and informed by their favorite Kapamilya stars.

ABS-CBNmobile Exclusives adds to the list of ever-expanding services available to ABS-CBNmobile subscribers, as ABS-CBN rapidly transitions into an agile digital company with a growing list of digital platforms and the biggest online presence among Filipino media companies.

To access ABS-CBNmobile Exclusives, ABS-CBNmobile users must have an active SIM with internet connection (3G/LTE). Subscribers can subscribe to KSURF promo loads to get value for their money. ABS-CBNmobile load is available in all SM branches, 7-11, Puregold, Ministop and  Globe Load Retailers.

5 REASONS WHY ABS-CBN TVplus IS THE PERFECT EARLY CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

 

Besides doing an early Christmas shopping to avoid the hassle, here’s another Christmas gift hack: you don’t need to scour bazaars and malls to find the perfect present for every important person in your life. A great gift is something that the whole family will use and enjoy all-year round, just like an ABS-CBN TVplus box.

Here are five reasons why ABS-CBN TVplus is a perfect early Christmas gift that fits the bill.

1.   ABS-CBN TVplus FEATURES ICONIC KIDDIE SHOWS, FUN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

Kids will love to spend their weekends and after-school free time watching ABS-CBN TVplus’ YeY, an all-day children’s channel that features some of the most iconic cartoon shows such as “Peppa Pig,” “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron,” and “Dora the Explorer” among others.

YeY is also home to the award-winning local children’s show, “Team YeY,” an all-kids variety show that introduces kid-friendly activities including storytelling, arts and crafts, singing, dancing, sports, and food preparation.

Kids and teens can find ways to have a fun learning experience via the Knowledge Channel on ABS-CBN TVplus. Here, they get a better appreciation of the lessons they have in school with shows like “MathDali,” which teaches students simple techniques to solve math problems so they can overcome their fear of learning math.

“Sesame Street,” the long-running American children’s show that is home to well-loved characters Big Bird and Elmo, also airs on Knowledge Channel so Filipino kids can read, write, and speak the fun way.

2.   ABS-CBN TVplus AIRS MOVIES ALL DAY LONG

If your family likes classic, old-school movies, ABS-CBN TVplus’ CineMo has got you covered as it airs timeless action and comedy movies top billed by Dolphy, the country’s King of Comedy, and Fernando Poe Jr., the one and only King of Philippine Movies.

CineMo also features Karla Estrada and Bayani Agbayani in the hit sitcom, “Funny Ka, Pare Ko,” which was named as Best Comedy Show in Gawad Tanglaw. In between shows, audiences also get a treat from “Lakas Tawa,” the comedy show of Laugh Factory’s “Funniest Person in the World” finalist, Alex Calleja.

3.   ABS-CBN TVplus OFFERS THE BEST SPORTS EVENTS

Dads who are always looking for their sports fix will be happy with the various sporting events that air on S+A (Sports + Action) like the NBA, ONE Championship, Top Rank Boxing, UAAP, NCAA, V-League, and the Philippine Azkals.

Besides the action, dads will be delighted with inspiring stories of Filipino athletes who are the epitome of hard work and determination that are featured on S+A.

ABS-CBN IS MOST WATCHED NETWORK IN MEGA MANILA, METRO MANILA, NATIONWIDE IN OCTOBER

The Kapamilya network outshined its rival network in every part of the country, particularly in Mega Manila where it registered an audience share of 36%, beating GMA’s 34%, in Metro Manila where it scored an average audience share of 41%, compared to GMA’s 27%, in Total Luzon where it recorded an average audience share of 43% versus GMA’s 34%, in Total Vizayas as it hit 53%, beating GMA’s 28%, and in Total Mindanao as it registered 50%, while GMA only got 33%.

Multinational audience measurement provider Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,610 urban and rural homes that represent 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population.

“FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” kept its reign as the most watched program in the country as it hit a monthly average national TV rating of 39.9%. Cardo’s (Coco Martin) mission gets even tougher now that his enemies have joined forces to put him down, gripping more and more viewers every night.

“TV Patrol” (34.4%), on the other hand, brought relevant news stories and public service to Filipinos nationwide and is still the most preferred newscast in the country, while its rival program “24 Oras” only managed to record 20.8%.

Hit primetime teleserye “La Luna Sangre” (33%) also brought excitement to viewers after Angel Locsin’s character Jacintha Magsaysay was revealed as a vampire with a mission to defeat the Supremo.

The talented kids with heartfelt stories of “Little Big Shots” (31.3%) also continued to mesmerize viewers every Saturday and Sunday night.

Meanwhile, Ivy Aguas’ death and Lily Cruz’s (Maja Salvador) resurgence in “Wildflower” (28.9%) bolstered the show’s ratings and became a huge trending topic online last month.

Viewers were also treated to values-oriented stories and whimsical tales in “Wansapanataym” (27.5%) and the true-to-life and inspirational stories in “MMK” (27.1%).

Kapamilya comedy shows “Home Sweetie Home” (27.1%), and “Goin’ Bulilit” (24%) also brought fun and entertainment to families nationwide.

Meanwhile, the Kapamilya network also performed well across all time blocks, particularly in the primetime block (6PM-12MN) where it recorded an average audience share of 50%, or a 21-point lead over GMA’s 31%. The primetime block is the most important part of the day when most Filipinos watch TV and advertisers put a larger chunk of their investment in to reach more consumers effectively.

ABS-CBN also enjoyed high national TV ratings in the morning block (6AM-12NN) with an average audience share of 39% versus GMA’s 32%, in the noontime block (12NN-3PM) with an average of audience share of 47%, compared to GMA’s 33%, and in the afternoon block (3PM-6PM) where it recorded 42% versus GMA’s 39%.
