Darna also flying high in US

Darna is flying high not only over the Philippine islands, but also over the area of responsibility of the USA.

That’s the latest report from Funfare’s Big Apple correspondent Edmund Silvestre.

“Although there’s no media research or official figures attesting to the smoldering popularity of Marian Rivera’s Darna on GMA Pinoy TV (counterpart of ABS-CBN’s The Filipino Channel or TFC), numerous TFC viewers in the New York-New Jersey area (and elsewhere in the US) admitted they now have included Darna in their daily viewing habits along with their favorites May Bukas Pa, Tayong Dalawa, Only You, TV Patrol and Wowowee.”

Darna rated more than 44 percent on its initial airing. The rating went up to 46-plus percent after only a few days.

“Trailer pa nga lang exciting na dahil ang sexy ni Marian, nakakagigil na Darna,” Edmund quoted Alfred Aldana, a Jersey City nurse and father of two college kids, as saying. “I’ve been glued to it since the first episode.”

“The (Aug. 10) pilot is very interesting and I think I will follow it ‘til the finale,” said businesswoman Felicita Go of Long Island, New York. “Sana lang ma-maintain ang quality at hindi mapabayaan. Lalo na yung effects and story line, sana maalagaan.”

Grace Yago-Tiburcio, an office employee and mother of two from Nashville, Tennesse, said she has always been a Darna fanatic, no matter who dons the sexy, red costume.

“I watch all the Darnas,” she said. “I was still in Batangas when Angel Locsin became Darna. Hindi ko pinalampas ‘yon hanggang matapos. Now, it’s me and my three children who watch Darna here in America. My husband (Nelson) likes the first episode; mukhang promising daw.”

Marietes Mancego-Carreon of Toronto, Canada, said there’s something in Darna that is so endearing to the audience. “Especially when the heroine is as beautiful as Marian,” Edmund quoted Carreon as saying. “She is the perfect representation of a modern Filipino woman — brave, intelligent and strong but loving, just and compassionate.”

GMA Pinoy TV has been giving a full-blast promotion for Darna as early as June, with colorful flyers and Darna’s life-size cut-outs displayed during Fil-Am events, such as the Philippine Independence Day celebration in Manhattan, the biggest Filipino Independence Day gathering outside the Philippines.

Said Edmund, “It remains to be seen, however, if Darna and GMA will be able to steal for good loyal TFC viewers. After all, TFC has a very strong line up of shows both in the entertainment, and news and public affairs departments and the Kapamilya network will definitely give a fight. As of now, it is safe to say that TFC still enjoys wider viewership than GMA Pinoy TV among US Filipinos. But based on the buzz the new Darna is creating even among TFC fanatics, ABS-CBN must do something to steal Narda’s stone.”

Edmund’s punchline?

“Better yet, TFC people should strike a deal with Valentina (played by Iwa Moto) to eliminate Narda pronto, or ask Santino to seek Bro’s divine help.”
