It’s Showtime possible to change timeslot to give way to the new show of Eat Bulaga Dabarkads in TV5

TV5 was rumored to be the new home of the newly resigned hosts of Eat Bulaga being led by Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon.

On May 31, 2023, the legendary trio announced that they’re already parted ways with Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) Inc. which is owned by Romeo Jalosjos.


According to a report from, Bacolod City Mayor Albee Benitez who owns Brightlight Productions already talked with TVJ to handle them amid their possible transfer to TV5.

Meanwhile, the current noontime show of TV5, It’s Showtime led by Vice Ganda may give way to the Dabarkads once they completed the process of transferring networks.

It was reported that It’s Showtime may change their timeslot to the evening so they would not clash with Eat Bulaga.

The two shows compete for ratings in the past years and putting both of them in the noontime slot may not be a wise move for the TV5 management.

It can be recalled that It’s Showtime and Eat Bulaga hosts shared friendly banters in the past weeks, including the birthday greeting of Joey to Vice.


As of writing, TV5 has yet to confirm any talks with TVJ.

Fans are also waiting on the next move of TAPE Inc. who vowed to continue airing Eat Bulaga with their new hosts.


TV host Willie Revillame who just resigned from AllTV was also reportedly being considered to fill the shoes left by the legendary trio.

They’re also expecting a legal battle between TVJ and TAPE for the rights of ‘Eat Bulaga’ branding.
