During their last episode on TV5, the “It’s Showtime” hosts were in tears as they bid farewell and expressed their profound gratitude to the network for serving as their home for a time.

At the latter part of the show’s Friday episode, Vice Ganda spoke on behalf of his fellow hosts and likened their show’s departure from TV5 to an ending of a book’s chapter.


“Sa araw na ito, isang kabanata ng libro na iyon ang nagtatapos—’yung kabanata ng pagiging bahagi namin ng Kapatid network, TV5,” the comedian said. “Ito na po yung huling pagkakataon na mapapanood niyo kami sa TV5.”


He then thanked TV5’s Manny V. Pangilinan for opening their doors to the ABS-CBN noontime show, stressing that although their time together was rather short, Vice Ganda and his fellow hosts will always be grateful to the Kapatid network.

“Walang hanggang pasasalamat po ang gusto naming ibigay sa inyo. Hindi namin kakalimutan na minsan sa buhay namin, nagkaroon ng isang engrandeng pagdiriwang ang ‘It’s Showtime’ at ang Madlang People dahil sa ginawa ninyong pagtulong at pagkupkop sa amin,” Vice Ganda stated.

“Nakakalungkot man dahil hindi humaba ang pamamalagi namin sa bahay niyo, pero gayunpaman maraming-maraming salamat sa inyong lahat,” he added.

Vice Ganda addressed the viewers of the noontime show and noted that they are opening another chapter in their journey—the noontime show’s move to GMA’s GTV.

He then became emotional as he admitted that he, along with his fellow hosts and “It’s Showtime” staff, has gotten weary of everything that’s happening, but that they are soldiering on for each other.


“Hindi man buo ang kasiyahan natin ngayon dahil may bahid ng lungkot, pero buong-buo ang pag-asa nating lahat [na] patuloy pa rin nating itataguyod itong bahay na ito, itong pamilya na ito… Itutuloy natin lahat ng nasimulan natin kung saan man—dito o doon,” he declared.

“Ilang beses niyong pinatunayan sa amin na kayo ang bumubuhay sa amin sa ilang beses naming paghihingalo,” he told the Madlang People. “Kakapit lang tayo at itutuloy natin ito.”

“It’s Showtime” is set to air on GMA’s GTV channel starting on Saturday, July 1.  /ra
