ABSTRACT
Reflections on the nature of the Filipino soap opera can lead to valuable
insights on the Filipino television mass audience.

While the soap opera is primarily a means of entertainment and profit,
some would ask how it could be made it an instrument of liberation and
empowerment. The more significant question, however, should be how the
structures of society could be transformed such that people have better
education, job security, and purchasing power. Only then would the
Filipino television audience want a form of entertainment different from
what proliferates nowadays.
