PBAVIDEOS share some characteristics and have similar roots with classic soap operas and telenovelas, yet the teleserye has evolved into a genre with its own unique characteristics, often working as a social realist reflection of Filipino reality. Teleseryes are aired in prime-time, afternoon, five days a week. They attract a broad audience crossing age and gender lines, and command the highest advertising rates in the Philippine television industry. The series last anywhere from three months to a year, or even longer, depending on their rating. Other forms of Philippine dramas include "serials" and "anthologies", which are usually shown on a weekly basis. These dramas are also intended to air a finite number of episodes usually lasting one season depending on the ratings.
