Eat Bulaga “Nalulugi”? TVJ Has This Statement

TVJ has this to say about Eat Bulaga and the “nalulugi” rumors about the program.

EAT BULAGA – Is the longest-running Philippine noontime show “nalulugi”? The trio TVJ said this about the rumor.

Last year, the longest-running noontime show in the Philippines Eat Bulaga departed from the production company Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE). The separation happened after many decades of working together.

This event occurred in light of the supposed internal conflicts between the production company and the show’s mainstay hosts Vic Sotto, Tito Sotto, and Joey de Leon. They are collectively known as TVJ.

A month after the departing, the old set of hosts of EB found a new home on TV5 but initially, they were not using the name of the show. They struggled and for months, underwent a crucial legal battle over the trademark ownership of the EB name. At the end of the tunnel was the light for TVJ and they were able to claim the rights for the trademark.

Last January, the TVJ finally secured the EB trademark.

They are now using the name and in the middle of their peaceful airing and great ratings, a rumor has emerged. According to the rumors, they have low profit from the show which can possibly lead to cancelation of the show.

Is this true?

During the “Gimme 5: Laro ng mga Henyo” segment of the TV5 noontime show, it all started when the former senator expressed that he will add Php 10k to the prize for those who can guess the right answer.

Allan K asked him why and he quipped, “May mga sinungaling na nagkakalat na nalulugi raw tayo, at magsasara na raw tayo. Sabi ng mga sinungaling.”

De Leon seconded this and stressed that these people are just envious of their achievement. He even challenged them, “Tito, naiinggit lang ang mga yan dahil hindi sila kasali sa Top 5 longest-running show in the world. Eto na lang hamon ko, umabot lang kayo ng 15 years baka lumuhod ako sa harap nyo.”

To prove their claims amid the rumors, they will according release a copy of their filed income tax to the media.
