GMA's prime time series, IGLOT, starring the well renowned actress Ms. Claudine Barreto, will finally bid goodbye in mid-November 2011 to give way for the debut of Survivor Phils which will be hosted by Richard Guttierez! Iglot currently ranks to be the weakest kapuso program in prime time lagging behind both in TV Ratings and total Ad minutes. It consistently gained poor support from the advertisers despite its well funded cast composed of former kapamilyas Claudine Barreto, Jolina Magdangala and Marvin Agustin.
Time of My Life will also bid farewell as reality programs Survivor and Protege invade the kapuso network's line of primetime programs in the last quarter. Like Iglot, Time of My Life is a weakling both in the ratings game and in total ad minutes, although its competing program in ABS-CBN experienced the same fate.
GMA Network earlier disclosed weak earnings in the third quarter, presumably caused by poor advertiser support from these two programs and an advertising cut by multi-national companies. However with the elimination of IGLOT and Time Of My Life, GMA hopes to redeem advertiser support and bounce back in net earnings with Survivor and Protege in GMA TELEBABAD!
