Marian Rivera's Bampirella rates high

THE PEOPLE behind “Startalk” has reason to be alarmed. They’re often beaten in the ratings game by their rival, not it’s not “Entertainment Live” of ABS-CBN that rates lower than them. The toprater in their slot is TV5’s “Sabado Sineplex”, full length Hollywood flicks translated into Tagalog. Last Saturday, “Startalk” got 3.7%; “E Live”, a measly 1.8% and “Sabado Sineplex” featuring “Iron Man” got a high 5.2%. It’s good GMA is able to recover in the ratings game with the perennially well loved “Wish Ko Lang”. Their new primetime show, Marian Rivera’s horror-comedy “Spooky Nights Bampirella” is also a winner. It rated 11.4% against “Maalaala Mo Kaya” that got 9.3%.
