“We can’t beat ‘Eat Bulaga’, but we’ll still be here [to continue making] people happy.”


This was Vice Ganda’s admission on Saturday at the height of “Eat Bulaga’s” most tweeted episode of its “kalyesere”.

AlDub’s “Tamang Panahon” event at the 55,000-seat Philippine Arena broke records on social media and probably making history as the most attended variety show on the noontime slot.

Vice Ganda said he’s thankful for “It’s Showtime” reaching the sixth year in the business. He recounted “It’s Showtime” used to be a morning show and when network executives at ABS-CBN asked him and his co-hosts to be moved on the noontime slot, he said back then he readily admitted he can’t beat “Eat Bulaga”.

“We told our bosses we don’t want to be on the noontime slot. We can’t beat ‘Eat Bulaga.’ Even if we put our powers together, even if I make cartwheels infront of the camera, we can’t,” he said in Filipino.

He said the ABS-CBN bosses told him they were moving “It’s Showtime” not to beat “Eat Bulaga” but to join them in making more people happy.

“Samahan nyo lang sila sa pagpapasaya,” Vice Ganda said.


“It’s Showtime” used to be on the late morning slot before the defunct “Wowowee” of controversial host Willie Revillame.

Vice Ganda also advised fans of both shows not to fight, especially on various social media like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, because he said the hosts of “It’s Showtime” and “Eat Bulaga” are friends in real life.

“In fact, they are our idols,” Vice Ganda said. TVJ
