Director Maryo De Los Reyes Proud That Ratings Of 'Nino' Has Picked Up

DIRECTOR MARYO DE LOS REYES and the whole cast of “Nino” are grinning from ear to ear these days. And why not? “Nino” is soaring high in the ratings. “Lahat kami sa show, natutuwa talaga dahil nag-pick up na ang ratings namin,” he says. “Our efforts have paid off. Having a show that imparts values education, good moral lessons and respect for positive human behavior has always been considered as contradictory to commercial success. At least now we can say that the audience are the ones clamouring for these. Parents, teachers, the religious are all endorsing the show. What a fulfilling feeling! We are very thankful and hope that children and the general public will continue to be inspired by the show as much as we are also challenged to continually bring them good entertainment values that bank on faith, hope, love of God and in the goodness of men.”

This week, Miguel Tanfelix as Nino learns how to write with the help of a Special Education teacher and remains friends with Katrina Halili as Hannah, who continues to yearn for her missing son and gets depressed each time the boy’s birthday nears, not knowing it’s no one else but Nino who calls her Mama Hannah. Meantime, the people in Barangay Pag-asa has found hope in the spring of water that helps them in their “koprahan”, a blessing from the Sto. Nino who is Nino’s Tukayo, played by tot actor David Remo.
