• ‘It’s Showtime’ challenges ‘AlDub’


    Will Kapamilya love teams beat Yaya Dub speaks?

    In a bid to topple—or at the very least challenge—the AlDub phenomenon on another big day Saturday, ABS-CBN’s It’s Showtime will be televised live from the Araneta Coliseum at noon in a free concert for its loyal “madlang people” (the hosts’ moniker for their fans).

    Said to be the show’s opening in the lead up to its sixth anniversary celebration on October 26, mainstays Vice Ganda, Anne Curtis, Vhong Navarro, Billy Crawford, Karylle, Kuya Kim Atienza, Jhong Hilario, Jugs Jugueta and Teddy Corpuz, Coleen Garcia, Ryan Bang, and Eruption have been tasked to pull out all the stops for today’s episode dubbed, “It’s Showtime Kapamilya Day: The ANIMversary Kick-off.”

    To help them along, the noontime show will also feature live performances from ABS-CBN’s leading prime time block love teams in Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (#KathNiel), Nadine Lustre and James Reid (#JaDine), Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil (#LizQuen), and Kim Chiu and Xian Lim (#KimXi), whose own hashtags are regular trending topics in social media particularly on Twitter. The question is, will they collectively beat #AlDub’s 12 million tweets (#AlDubMostAwaitedDate) tweets from September 19’s “Kalyeserye” episode? Or will Eat Bulaga, from the comforts of the show’s home in Broadway Centrum in Quezon City, beat the record themselves what with talks that Yaya Dub will finally speak beyond the four words she has uttered on the show all week?

    Needless to say, ABS-CBN’s move to pit their unbeaten prime time gems with the power of AlDub is a risky move. For, if their trending talents fail to make the slightest dent in the numbers by day’s end, it will be a bit of a shame.

    Besides ABS-CBN’s top love teams, Queen of All Media Kris Aquino, Primetime King Coco Martin, Pangako Sa ’Yo stars Jodi Sta. Maria, Ian Veneracion, Angelica Panganiban, and Andrea Brillantes, as well as Nathaniel child stars Marco Masa and Yesha Camille will also grace the stage of It’s Show Time at the Big Dome.

    1. kung love team lang kasi ang panlalaban ng ABS CBN sana naman historical version,. para hindi puro kilig ang usapan sa mundo.

    2. kung solid kayo sa showtime suportahan niyo dahil hindi nakakasupport yang pagiging bitter niyo. kapag na kick-off yan. mawawalan ng saysay yang pakikipagtalo niyo!!! ang eb. kahit ilang showtime ang ifeatures. mananatiling eat bulaga yan mga BITTER mukhang amplaya na na mga kulubot ang mukha

    3. sino pala kalevel niya? i heard na sinabi niya rin dati na hindi niya kalevel dolphy and vic sotto? sino kalevel niya? OTB o yung mga katulad yiong bitter?

    4. Tama si Vice, hindi nya ka-level ang Aldub. DAhil si Ben 10 ang tumalo sa kanya ayon kay B.A.Y.A.W. nung nagpunta sya sa UPDiliman

    5. Not to demean ABS-CBN or It’s Showtime, but their moves were really pathetic. And for Vice Ganda to say that theirs (6.something tweets) were organic or real, that too was arrogance to the highest level. See? Real entertainment? won over lousy lipsynching. And they call themselves world class? Duh.

    6. I always salute those kapamilya stars who also support ALDUB, at least they’re not hypocrite not to accept the fact that this season is ALDUB’s tamang panahon… I mean EAT BULAGA owns the beacon. Oras oras lng kasi yan eh.. kung baga walang consitent sa ratings minsan showtime ang nangunguna minsan EB, pero ngayon coz of ALDUB, naging consistent talaga ang ratings ng EB kaya nga inamin ni boss Joey na isang BAEYAYA ang pagdating ng ALDUB sa kanila.. EB has been a noontime show for 36 years kaya kabisado na nila ang taste ng masa…di na ako ngtaka kung bakit sumikat ang ALDUB.. ang kalyeserye segment is very patok..between an ordinary girl having a crush sa iniidolo niyang artista..akalain mo yun sa EB pa sila nagkakilala… all i can say is that.. ABS-CBN should play the game fairly otherwise magmumukha silang ka cheap cheap sa masa…

    7. nayon alam nyo 25.6M lang naman ang dapat nyong habulin “Its Closetime” Better think fast abs-cbn or else your gonna eat the dust of aldub

    8. puro lang naman silang gaya ang showtime na yan eh walang originality. magisip kasi kayo ng sarili nyo wag lang kayo gaya ng gaya no????? bitter!!!

    9. Ahhh…too bad. “ABS CBN’s risky move to pit their unbeaten prime time gems with the power of ALDUB” has FINALLY PUT THEM TO SHAME… their trending talents FAILED MISERABLY to make the slightest dent in the numbers by day’s end. TOTAL EMBARRASSMENT I should say…

      They better think fast on their toes and come up with more original ideas to beat this ALDUB PHENOMENON…otherwise, they should just accept defeat, sit back and wait until the phenomenon has subsided… say five years from now.

    10. 21 million tweets..
      15 kami sa pamilya at lahat may Twitter. nagkatwitter dahil sa aldub..

    11. LOL…apat na love team na may kanya kanya ng movies laban sa isang love team na walang movie at puro dubbing sa noontime show in 30 mins na portion. Pero talo pa din kayo sa rating at twitter…kakahiya kayo ABS, magsara na kayo. Hahaha.

    12. Hinakot na ng ABS CBN ang lahat ng loveteam nila para pan laban sa ALDUB, kakatawa, halatang kabado hahaha
