Kris Aquino's 'The Price is Right' Moves To a Saturday Timeslot

The Price is Right, Kris Aquino's daily pre-primetime game show program on ABS-CBN will be moved to a once a week Saturday primetime schedule starting April.

The reason: poor ratings.

The Price is Right premiered last February 5, 2011. Although it is a hit in the US, the show didn't seem to interests the attention of Pinoys. As a matter of fact, the game show only gathered 14.93% viewership ratings from Kantar Media-TNS National Household for the period March 17-21. This is far lower than the 19.26% ratings of its rival show Magic Palayok of GMA-7.

While in the 18-21 data of AGB Mega Manila People Ratings, The Price is Right only got an average of 4.55%. Magic Palayok, however, got 9.85%.

The Price is Right will be replaced by the remake of Mula sa Puso starring Kapamilya young stars Lauren Young, Enrique Gil and JM de Guzman starting Monday, March 28.

Here is the official statement released by ABS-CBN through Mr. Bong Osorio, Head of ABS-CBN Corporate Communications:

Price Is Right will now air on Saturdays starting April to better serve the majority of its viewers. Its original weekday schedule will be taken over by Mula sa Puso starting March 28, Monday, before TV Patrol."
