Vice Ganda: Rivalry with ‘Eat Bulaga,’ ‘AlDub’ ‘healthy’
Comedian Vice Ganda, one of the hosts of the ABS-CBN noontime show “It’s Showtime,” has admitted that he sees competition in rival show “Eat Bulaga” of GMA-7 amid the phenomenal popularity of “Kalyeserye” segment featuring love team “AlDub.”
AlDub, the pairing between actor Alden Richards and newcomer Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza, has been credited for the recent surge in ratings of the 36-year-old noontime show.
“Bago pa naman nagka-AlDub, talagang may kumpetisyon na ang ABS at ang GMA,” Vice Ganda was quoted in a report by the Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP).
(Even before there was AlDub, ABS(CBN) and GMA already had a competition.)

“Hindi lang naman Showtime saka Eat Bulaga. Teleserye nila, kakumpitensiya ng teleserye namin… lahat.
Kaya napakaipokrita, napakaipokrito na pagka sinabi ko, ‘Naku, walang kumpetisyon!” she said.
(It’s not just Showtime and Eat Bulaga. Their teleseryes and our teleseryes…everything…(are rivals). I don’t want to appear a hypocrite and say that there is no competition.)
“May kumpetisyon ‘yan, and it’s a healthy competition (There is competition and it’s healthy),” she added. IDL
