According to some, It’s Showtime Fans, the concept of Eat Bulaga’s new segment was similar to Expecially For You, prompting them to urge the longest-running noontime show to cancel it.

Some of them suggested that it would be better for Eat Bulaga to revive their classic segments, including “That’s My Boy,” or “Super Sireyna” instead of copying from their competitors.

“That’s My Boyfriend halatang ginaya ng Eat Bulaga ang Expecially For You ng Its Showtime
No originality at all and at the end of the day mas sikat pa rin ang segment ng its showtime!” netizen Rachel said.

“Please please stop with that’s my boyfriend and more time on sugod bahay,” netizen Sinclair commented.

Even some Eat Bulaga fans were disappointed by the segment.

“Sana that’s my boy n lang miss that potion than boyfriend .. found kinda boring haba ng segment sana mas masaya ung acting sa sugod!! Constructive criticism,” netizen Bevs remarked.

However, some netizens reminded that Expecially For You was also inspired by one of the segments of TV5’s now-defunct noontime show Tropang LOL.

TV Patrol, naiulat na magbabalik na sa channel 2 AllTV ni Manny Villar

ABS-CBN’s flagship newscast program was reportedly returning home after a successful deal between the Kapamilya Network and Manny Villar’s AllTV.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN fans expressed their joy at the said reports.

“Baka isang araw lahat ng show ng ABS ay pagsama samahin na sa All TV para sa isang network na lang sila makikipag collab, dati namang sa kanila yan. Syempre depende parin sa agreement nila, kung saan sila kikita ng husto,” netizen Alex remarked.

Others believed that Villar had no choice but to get content from ABS-CBN after its failed attempt to create its own shows, like Willie Revillame’s flop program Wowowin.

“Wala namang kakayahan ang mga Villar pagdating sa broadcast at entertainment industry kaya no choice sila kundi ibigay na lang ulit sa abscbn as block timer, kahit papaano kikita si Villar kesa puro palugi,” netizen Mark commented.
