Tito Sotto admits that Eat Bulaga executives wants founding producer Tony Tuviera to leave the noontime show

Eat Bulaga host Tito Sotto admitted that he was disappointed in what was happening in the longest-running noontime show in the Philippines.

In an interview with Nelson Canlas, Sotto confirmed that there were internal issues happening in Eat Bulaga and revealed some of the reasons behind it.

According to Sotto, one of the biggest reasons for the issue surrounding Eat Bulaga was the plan of some executives of Tape Inc. to remove one of the founding producers of the noontime show Tony Tuviera.

Aside from Tuviera, Tape Inc., led by the Jalosjos family, wanted some of the production team members of Eat Bulaga to resign or be removed as part of their plan to fix the budget of the show.

“All the way, from 1979 up to the present, ‘pag merong iki-clear na portions o pinag-uusapan, they clear it with Tito, Vic and Joey and Tony Tuviera. No one else. All of sudden they are saying it has always been cleared with them. I’m surprised paanong masasabi ‘yun?,” Sotto said.

Sotto insisted that Eat Bulaga doesn’t need any fixing.

“Nagugulat kami na after 43 years, going 44, na biglang magkakaroon ng kontrobersiya na, ika nga nabulabog ang Eat Bulaga samantalang nananahimik and everything was doing well. There were ups and downs but generally, it was fine, even until about January of 2023,” he stated.

It can be recalled that Tuviera reportedly receive support from most of Eat Bulaga hosts and staff and was even rumored to leave the noontime show if Tape Inc. ever insisted on their alleged plans.
