BEATING ASAP: Two of the main cast members of “Sunday PinaSaya” claim they still can’t believe their show continues to topple competition in ratings.
Ai-Ai de las Alas and Marian Rivera exclaim they didn’t imagine it could happen, but it just did. For the longest time, any Sunday noontime show aired side by side channel 2’s ASAP either changed titles or folded up after a few seasons, until this game-changer came along.
Credit goes to the program’s creative team led by Andrew del Real that has embarked on an alternative type of programming to level up with, topple competition.
Going comic has paved the way for GMA to regain supremacy on the Sunday noontime slot.
