Issues circulating about the longest-running noontime show Eat Bulaga kept coming.
In a report from Politiko, several networks expressed interest in taking Eat Bulaga from GMA Network when its contract with the Kapuso network expires.
It was reportedly that Manny V. Pangilinan, the owner of TV5 wanted to air Eat Bulaga together with ABS-CBN noontime show It’s Showtime.
Meanwhile, Net25, the current network of Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon also expressed interest in giving a timeslot to Eat Bulaga.
However, some netizens doubt that GMA would allow Eat Bulaga, one of the top-rated shows to leave their network.
The said rumors circulated amid the internal issue happening between the executives of Eat Bulaga.
It was also reported that Eat Bulaga may undergo ‘rebranding’ that may result in the removal of its current staff and hosts.
It’s up to the executives of Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE Inc.) led by their chairman Romeo Jalosjos Sr. if they’re going to end the 28 years relationship between Eat Bulaga and GMA.
The contract between GMA and Eat Bulaga was set to expire in 2026.
