Like the favorite Pinoy dish adobo, viewers and netizens can’t seem to get enough of The Lost Recipe as the fantasy-romance series bannered by Mikee Quintos and Kelvin Miranda officially becomes the highest rating program on GMA News TV (GNTV) this 2021 and a constant top trending topic on Twitter Philippines during its first three days of airing.
The Lost Recipe not only contributed to the increased viewership of GNTV’s primetime block but even made it to the Overall Top 20 programs in Urban Phils. for the period Jan. 18 to 20 (based on Nielsen NUTAM overnight data).
Even prior to its airing date last Jan. 18, the GMA Public Affairs-produced series has already received praises from netizens for its visually stunning teasers. Its official trailer surpassed the one million view mark just days after it was released.
Its pilot airing became the top trending topic on social media last Monday–with the official hashtag #TheLostRecipe taking the number one spot on Twitter Philippines trends. Its dominance on the social media platform continued the following nights, with the hashtags #TheLostRecipeTimeTravel and #TheLostRecipeAppleVsGinger landing on top of Twitter Philippines’ trending topics last Jan. 19 and 20, respectively.
Viewers and netizens are hooked on the story of Harvey and Apple, with some already asking for a marathon recap of the pilot week and for the full episodes to be available online as soon as possible.
