MANILA, Philippines – It has only been a week since “Two Wives” started airing on television, but it has already become the newest primetime habit of Filipino viewers with its fast-paced storytelling, gripping plot, memorable lines, and provocative scenes.

Data from Kantar Media show that the unusual infidelity story offered by the Koreanovela remake ruled its timeslot from October 13 to 17 with an average national TV rating of 19.7%, or seven points higher than its rival program “Hiram Na Alaala” ( 12.8%).

“Two Wives” has also been a consistent trending topic on social media. Last Friday (Oct 17), the program got five out of the ten trending topics on micro-blogging site Twitter that include its official hashtag for the episode #TwoWivesBigMistake, the characters’ names Victor, Janine, and Yvonne, and one of its lead actresses Erich.

Netizens, through their tweets, condemned Victor (Jason) for being vulnerable and giving in to Janine’s (Erich) sexual desires. Yvonne (Kaye), on the other hand, received sympathy and pity from online fans.

This week, Victor and Janine face the consequences of their acts. How will Victor make it up to his unknowing wife Yvonne? Will Victor and Janine cut their ties or will they turn their family role-playing into reality?

Don’t miss “Two Wives,” weeknights after “Ikaw Lamang” on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida.
