Call it desperate.
Capitalizing on the recent success of the accidental love duo AlDub (Alden Richards and Yaya Dub), the so-called #1 News Channel on Free TV will air another teleserye rerun after Amaya. Enter Illustrado.
This historical drama series failed to impress on its initial run on GMA as more viewers are tuned in to its rival Two Wives. Even the mature scenes on Two Wives were way more interesting to viewers and netizens alike, unlike the historical value of Illustrado. It was produced by GMA News and Public Affairs as its first venture on GMA Telebabad.
GMA hasn’t moved on from Alden’s past blunders, hence with AlDub getting more popular as of late, here we are with this rerun.
Let’s see if the rerun of this historical series will make an impact on a struggling News TV, especially on GMA’s loyal viewers and Alden’s new fans.
This rerun will start this Monday, September 21, 3:00pm on GMA News TV.
