Kathryn, Feels Like a Royalty with the Success of ‘Princess and I’

Kathryn Bernardo is thankful for the unrelenting warm support of TV viewers for ABS-CBN's 'royal drama,' “Princess and I.”

“I am grateful that we have consistent high TV ratings and now it’s even getting higher. So I really hope that the viewers continue to follow the adventures of Mikay every night because we are all doing our best to make it much better,” shared Kathryn.

Based on the latest data of Kantar Media, the trending and top-rating drama series topbilled by the ‘primetime princess’ Kathryn together with its powerhouse cast Albert Martinez, Gretchen Barretto, Precious Lara Quigaman, Dominic Ochoa, Enrique Gil, Daniel Padilla, and Khalil Ramos gained a national TV rating of 31.7%, or almost 15 points higher than the 16.8% national TV rating garnered by its rival program in GMA, “Biritera.”

Kathryn dedicated the success of their show to its first-of-its-kind story and the commitment of their team. She said, “Aside from the fact that our story is very light with a touch of drama which Pinoys love; one of ‘Princess and I’s big success factors is the great working relationship of the team especially with our directors, Dado Lumibao and Francis Pasion, because they closely monitor our characters, ensuring we execute it right.”

With Kathryn’s show shining in the Primetime Bida block of ABS-CBN, viewers cannot help but compare her with ‘Mara Clara’ co-lead star Julia Montes, who is currently one of the lead stars of another Kapamilya top-rating primetime teleserye, “Walang Hanggan.”

“Julia is really like a sister to me, so there was never a time that competition became an issue to us,” said Kathryn. “I’m super proud of her because I know very well that their show is doing great too in the ratings. Actually, I’m a fan of ‘Walang Hanggan.”

Meanwhile, along with her hardships to get her father (Dominic)out of prison, Mikay’s (Kathryn) heart will be put to test too with the coming of three ‘princes’ in her life. Who will win Mikay’s love–his bestfriend Kiko (Khalil) who just confessed his love for her; Jao (Enrique) who visits the Philippines to look for himself and for the girl who took his heart; or ‘bad boy’ Gino (Daniel) who irritates Mikay at every encounter?

Don’t miss “Princess and I” weeknights after “TV Patrol” on Primetime Bida. For more updates, log on to www.abs-cbn.com or follow @abscbndotcom on Twitter.

    According to the website
    Box Office Mojo, the movie’s domestic total as of May 13, 2012 is $56,692 or
    approximately 2.42 million pesos.

    GMA-7 critics has this to
    say: [via Facebook]

    GMA Films’ much hyped
    horror movie, THE ROAD, which debuted in 50 US cinemas has failed to lured
    interest from American viewers as it only raked P2.6 million or $61,200
    according to the international tabulator BOX OFFICE MOJO. Although the Film
    allegedly received positive reviews from international critics as claimed by
    GMA, it has somehow failed to appeal even to almost a million Filipino citizens
    residing in US and Canada. Is the hype for the said movie simple media frenzy?

  7. yun plang the road, 1 showing 1 day sa ilang mga sinehan sa US at ilan lang sa canada. ipagtanong nyo sa mga relatives nyo sa US kung may nblitaan sila ganito sine, and if ever there is, nanood b cla?  gma, NGANGA, dagdag lugi p ito sa kanila dahil ung kinita e kulang p pambyad sa promotion nito…ito po ang totoo.

  8. ang genre ng princess and i e pra sa young adults, kya hit n hit..congrats, kathryn

    Kaya ka nga Kapuso dahil wagas ang pagiging BOBO mo. Bwahahaha

  13. Carlo68 // May 14, 2012 at 11:29 pm //

    Ang laki ng pinagdadaanan ng bading na to. Anong magagawa mo kung ikaw lang ang nauto ng GMA-7? At least proud ka dahil ikaw lang ang nagtataglay ng titulong “Ang Nag-iisang Uto-uto sa GMA”. Kaya ipagmalaki mo yan at huwag ikahiya. Malay mo, balang araw, lumuwag luwag na ang buhay mo at makakabili ka na ng ticket para may manood naman ng mga GMA movies kahit papano.

  14. oh?? the road na naman ang bida? hahaha flop namn sa US… hahahha $61.2k hahah!!

  15.  Bakit isiningit ang The Road. Ang primetime hit na Princess and I ang bida dito, tumaod sa Bungisngis ng GMA.
