ABS-CBN sues AGB Nielsen Media (ABS-CBN News)
ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp. on Friday sued AGB Nielsen Media Research Philippines for continuing to release nationwide TV ratings despite information that metered households used to gauge nationwide TV ratings might have been tampered.
Wait! Akala ko ba leading ang ABS-CBN sa NUTAM/National Ratings? So ibig sabihin ang national ratings hindi totoo? OMG -- this just reeks of desperation. These are the very ratings that ABS-CBN uses to claim they are #1 nationwide, and then now they are questioning it's own validity. ABS-CBN just called themselves liars. Sweet.
Because of the Internet and the runaway success of Marimar, people in the Visayas and Mindanao are realizing that they have a choice outside of ABS-CBN. It may be that the South is finally switching channels and ABS-CBN is making a pre-emtive strike: just discredit everything so nobody knows what to believe, and ABS-CBN can just claim to be #1 without any third-party data.
