Mark Neumann's 'Baker King' Ratings Affected By Overtime Airing Of PBA Games

MARK NEUMANN and Shaira Mae are happy that the pilot week of “Baker King” on TV5 rated satisfactorily and got very positive feedback in social media. “We’re glad kasi maraming nagsasabi sa amin na talagang they follow our show every night,” says Mark. “Shaira and I really want to thank them all and we promise na mas gaganda pa ang future episodes so just keep on watching.”

We’re not surprised as it’s well directed by Mac Alejandre, who treated it like it’s a movie and not just a soap on TV. The script is well written with good dialogue and credible characterizations. The pacing is very fast so you won’t find it tedious viewing. Each scene is also expertly mounted and the acting of all the actors is very competent.

But for “Baker King” to establish a devoted following of regular viewers, they should make sure the show comes in on time. The problem is that the PBA Games can be unpredictable and often goes overtime, so they’re not really sure as to when they’re coming in. And before them, viewers will have to first “Wattpad Presents” which this week features the story “How to Break Up with a Bad Boy” starring Martin Escudero, Vin Abrenica and Mitch Liggayu of the Jamich youtube sensation in her first acting role. Often times, “Baker King” comes in at around 10 PM and viewership is already waning by that time. That’s just too bad for a good show that has great potential of being a toprater.
