MANILA - Thirteen out of the 15 spots in the list of the most watched programs in June were nabbed by ABS-CBN programs, putting the Kapamilya network firmly in place as the No. 1 TV station for the month, according to Kantar Media.

Based on data measured using a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes, ABS-CBN scored a total-day viewership of 45% in June. GMA-7 and TV5, meanwhile, got 32% and 11%, respectively.

Bolstering ABS-CBN's consistent lead are its primetime and weekend offerings, led by "The Voice Kids," which was the overall No. 1 show in the Philippines last month with 35.6% in average national TV ratings.

"Dyesebel," a Primetime Bida offering, ranked second with 31%.

Other primetime shows in the top 15 were the drama series "Ikaw Lamang" (third with 30.7%), the much-talked-about "The Legal Wife" (fifth with 28.8%), and ABS-CBN's flagship newscast "TV Patrol" (seventh with 25.8%).

"Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon," the new series starring Bea Alonzo as two different characters, broke into the 10 with an average viewership of 21.4%, good enough for ninth place. "Mirabella," which will conclude on Friday, ranked 11th with 19.6%.

With the strong ratings of its line-up, ABS-CBN's primetime block (6 p.m. to 12 midnight) had an average audience share of 51% in June. GMA-7 and TV5 only registered 30% and 9%, respectively, in this block for the same month.

Aside from "The Voice Kids," six weekend programs of ABS-CBN made the list of the Philippines' top shows, with the long-running drama anthology "Maalaala Mo Kaya" ranking fourth with an average nationwide rating of 30%.

The popular fantasy anthology "Wansapanataym" (sixth with 28%), magazine show "Rated K" (eighth with 23.3%), sitcom "Home Sweetie Home" (12th with 18.8%), kiddie gag show "Goin' Bulilit" (13th with 18.7%), and the Saturday edition of "It's Showtime" (14th with 16.5%) were also weekend top-raters in June.

The only two non-ABS-CBN programs in the list were "Magpakailanman" and "Nino," which placed 10th and 15th, respectively.
