ABS-CBN accused its rival station GMA-7 of being involved in the rigging of the ratings for television in the Bacolod Area by means of paying households with AGB meters in order to favor watching their shows over the other station.
The ratings in this area was temporarily suspended after the court issued a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) over the ratings outfit. The fight even grow deeper when a supposed video leak of the rehearsal of the show Wowowee of its game Wilyonaryo was uploaded and shown over YouTube and was even advertised by Eat Bulaga during its airing.
It seems that there will be a lot more stories to come in the days to come as the two embattled for the truth in this first ever ratings scam on television.
