Coach Chot Reyes Proud Of TV5's Primetime Ratings Soaring High With The PBA Games

TV5 HIT IT big in the ratings with the 39th Season of the PBA when the San Mig Super Coffee Mixers finally clinched their grand slam win over the Rain or Shine ElastoPainters in the do-or-die Game 5 of the PLDT Home Telpad Governors’ Cup Finals. The heated game placed it at the Top 5 of the most watched primetime program, based on overnight data from Nielsen Media Research.

The game averaged almost 4 million viewers or 9.5% AMR and 34.0% audience share in the National Urban TV Audience Measurement (NUTAM) from 8-11:30pm, equalling the high ratings reached during the Philippine Cup Finals last February. At its peak, the game was watched by 5.7 million viewers or 13.3%AMR and 56.8% audience share.

“What a perfect end to a record-breaking PBA coverage this season on TV5. It was a tightly-fought series between these two great teams with two of the best basketball coaches in the country. History was also made with the grand slam feat of the San Mig Super Coffee Mixers. It just goes to show how much Filipinos love the PBA,” Chot Reyes, Head of Sports5, said.

Gate attendance at the SMART Araneta Coliseum for Game 5 reached a season-high of 23,234 fans. The 39th Season of the PBA was presented by Sports5, the sports production arm of TV5. Sports5 will be also bringing Gilas Pilipinas games to Filipinos with the LIVE free TV broadcast of the 2014 FIBA World Cup games, which starts on August 30.
