"Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho" (KMJS) from GMA is still the most watched news and public affairs program on Philippine TV and the most followed Philippine TV program on Facebook. For the fourth consecutive year, "KMJS" is the favorite Sunday viewing habit of Filipino families with a strong 19.4 percent average NUTAM (National Urban TV Audience Measurement) people rating, equivalent to 9.4 million viewers on primetime, based on Nielsen Philippines' data for 2021.

Furthermore, "KMJS" has 27 million followers on Facebook, the highest among Philippine TV program accounts in the country. Last year alone, its online engagements reached over 164 million. It is also the leading show that drives traffic to GMA Public Affairs’ YouTube channel. In 2021, KMJS’ videos generated over 6 billion combined views on Facebook and YouTube. Its topics continue to trend weekly on Twitter.

“Our goal is to continue connecting and interacting meaningfully with both our TV audiences and online followers and subscribers. But what we‘re really most proud of are the lives we helped change for 2021,” program host Jessica Soho said.

2021 has also been most rewarding for "KMJS". The program was a Finalist at the 2021 New York Festivals’ Documentary: Social Justice category for its “Babaeng Tinaga sa Mukha (The Woman Slashed on Her Face)” segment, and was given a Special Citation under the Best Adult Education/Cultural Program category last year in the Catholic Mass Media Awards after having been elevated to the Hall of Fame status as “Best News Magazine” in 2020. For the third time, KMJS was also named the Most Outstanding Magazine Show at the Gawad La Sallianeta Awards.

And like she has done for the past years, Jessica again pays it forward in 2021 by helping judge entries in two international award-giving bodies that champion good TV Journalism — the Emmy Awards and the New York Festivals Film and TV Awards.
