It’s Showtime will join force with LOL
ABS-CBN’S noontime show It’s Showtime and TV5’s Lunch Out Loud (LOL) are set to have their “Sanib-Pwersa.”
The tradition of noontime shows in the history of Philippine television has been existing for many decades now. Noontime shows come and go and every TV network in the country has followed the format of variety show in this timeslot.
Although It’s Showtime and LOL are rivals in the past, they are now going to be one team. To recall, former Kapamilya host Billy Crawford and director Bobet Vidanes were part of the noontime show of ABS-CBN and currently, they are working in the noontime show of TV5. Now, they are going to work again with their former colleagues.
In a report from News5’s YouTube channel, it was confirmed that the “sanib-pwersa” of the two noontime shows is set to happen soon.
“Mas palalakasin pa ang samahan sa tanghalian,” the report stated regarding the merging of the two shows this July.
This announcement garnered various reactions from netizens. There were those who said that they don’t want the merge to happen while some said that it would awkward since Billy and Direk Bobet already left It’s Showtime. Here are some of the comments posted on the popular showbiz site.
Previously, it was reported that ABS-CBN and TV5 is going to have a 50-50 partnership deal. When TV5’s head Manny V. Pangilinan was asked about this, he said that there was nothing final yet.
On the other hand, in a recently released station ID, stars from both networks were featured. Several shows of ABS-CBN are already airing on TV prior to the surfacing of reports about the 50-50 partnership deal.
