ABS-CBN’s newest Asianovela “Black” instantly enthralled Filipino viewers during its pilot telecast Monday night (January 8) and debuted strongly on primetime with a national TV rating of 11.3% compared to its rival program with only 7.2%, according to data from Kantar Media.
“Black” opened its riveting tale with the story of Sarah, a woman who can see the shadow of death behind people who are about to die. Tension rose halfway when Sarah panicked and caused a scene inside a plane that was about to take flight after she saw shadows all over the place a sign that everyone in the plane only had a few hours to live.
