The Stepdaughters' Of GMA Vs. 'Asintado' Of ABS-CBN, A Fight Between Starstruck Discoveries According To Program Manager Hazel Abonita

GMA PROGRAM MANAGER Hazel Abonita is quite ecstatic because her new show, “The Stepdaughters”, started well in the ratings in its first few episodes. “Yes, panalo po tayo!” she says. “For a while, siempre, kabado kami kasi ang lakas ng sinundan naming ‘Impostora’. Ang finale ratings nga nito, doble nung sa kalabang programa. But then, we’re happy na na-sustain naman ng ‘The Stepdaughters’ ang high ratings ng ‘Impostora’. Nag-trending din kami at pinag-uusapan online sa social media kaya we’re so glad na puro magagandang comments ang nababasa namin.”

She says that “The Stepdaughters” and its rival “Asintado” is a battle between Starstruck discoveries. “Nasa ‘The Stepdaugthers’ sina Megan Young na from Starstruck 1, Katrina Halili from Starstruck 2 and Sef Cadayona na from Starstruck 5. Sa kabila naman, kasama sina Aljur Abrenica and Paulo Avelino na parehong Starstruck graduates din.”

The ever fashionable Hazel is also the program manager of the much loved romcom, “The One that Got Away”, on primetime which is also doing well in the ratings game.
