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).

“May kumpetisyon ‘yan, and it’s a healthy competition (There is competition and it’s healthy),” she added. IDL
