From November 1 to December 31, 2021, GTV recorded 11.6 percent people audience share in Total Philippines, which surpassed TV5, its closest competitor, with 10.4 percent GTV’s ratings success was also bolstered by the network’s non-stop efforts to expand GTV’s reach and clarity of reception in areas outside of Mega Manila.
