The first episode of the rebranded episode of Eat Bulaga went viral on Monday, but not mostly for a good reason.
#EatBulaga has been trending for several hours now on Twitter and most of the comments were negative as they didn’t like the new environment of the longest-running noontime show after its original hosts like Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon left.
Some netizens even posted a video to show their disappointment over the new hosts of Eat Bulaga, Paolo Contis, Kim Atienza, Buboy Villar, Cassy Legaspi, and Marvin Legaspi.

A netizen even switched networks in the middle of the show because of being dissatisfied with the new Eat Bulaga.
“Ilipat mo, ang pangit nito,” the netizen said.

Most netizens expressed support for the original hosts, saying that TAPE Inc. cannot replace TVJ.
“You can use the logo, you can use the opening song, you can even use the terms and words TVJ uses, but these new wannabes will never personify the term Dabarkads. Not in the slightest. And we all know that certainly, this is fake,” netizen Gerald said.

However, some Twitter users expressed satisfaction over the changes that happened to Eat Bulaga.
“Parang mas okay tong bagong eat bulaga na mamimigay araw araw ng iphone 14, mas may mapapala ang taumbayan kaysa mapupunta lang ang budget sa mga matatandang hosts na ang mahal mahal ng TF tas nakaupo lang naman,” netizen Miss Scor remarked.
Meanwhile, fans are waiting for the new noontime show of the TVJ in TV5.
