Moreover, throughout its 15-week run on TV, the all-new Batibot also proves to be the most preferred show among kids aged 2-12 years old in Mega Manila during its timeslot (Saturday at 8:30 to 9:00 am) with an average audience share of 31.5% audience share, leaving its rival programs far behind: GMA’s 22.8% audience share and ABS-CBN’s 21.1% audience share. This is according to Nielsen Media Research data from November 27 to March 5.
This Saturday (March 12), Batibot will kick off a four-week special to feature some of the highlights of the show.
Batibot was first introduced by the Philippine Children’s Television Foundation, Inc. (PCTVF) in response to a demand for local educational program that would provide smart teaching tools for Filipino children. “After more than a decade we are trying our best to reach out to a new generation of children, introducing Batibot to them in a different time and media landscape, fully conscious of the fact that they have to make their own choices about what TV shows they enjoy. The ratings show parents are watching alongside their children. That is truly encouraging,” shared Feny de los Angeles-Bautista, PCTVF executive director and producer of Batibot.
Catch Batibot every Saturday from 8:30 to 9:00am with five-minute daily shorts at 9am and 4pm on TV5 Kids.
