The decision to suspend It’s Showtime for 12 days is confirmed.
The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) suspends It’s Showtime for 12 airing days.
In a statement released by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) this Monday, September 4, suspension for ABS-CBN noontime program Its Showtime is hereby issued.
To recall, this suspension is not the first time to be imposed on the show.
This decision is a response to the complaints filed by viewers regarding the July 25, 2023 episode of the show. Accordingly, the hosts of the show acted indecently in the segment called “Isip Bata”.
The incident was the one that happened between Vice Ganda and Ion Perez’s “cake” joke and such was summoned by the MTRCB. This scene accordingly violated Section 3 (c) Presidential Decree No. 1986.
“In accordance with the Presidential Decree (P.D.) No. 1986 (MTRCB Charter), the respondents may file one Motion for Reconsideration (MR) within fifteen days after receipt of the decision. Should the Board’s Decision be adverse to the respondent’s MR, they may appeal to the Office of the President within fifteen days from the receipt of the decision on the MR,” the statement read.
As stated, there are two additional warnings to the noontime show:
Case no. 1: “Inappropriate utterance of the word “G Spot” by hosts Jhong Hilario and Vice Ganda.”
This was during the January 24, 2023 episode which violated the Section 2 (B), Chapter IV of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of Presidential Decree (P.D.) No. 1986.
Case no. 2: “Inappropriate utterance of the word “Tinggil” by host Vhong Navarro.”
This was during the June 3, 2023 episode of the show which violated Section 2 (B), Chapter IV of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of P.D. No. 1986.
