Despite its controversies and new hosts, the rebranded version of GMA Network’s Eat Bulaga still outperformed its competitors last Monday, June 5.
According to the report, Eat Bulaga gained a 5.2% rating on Monday against TV5’s It’s Showtime which got 3.2%.
It failed to fulfill the prediction of some experts that the Kapuso noontime show would not get good ratings after legendary trio Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon left the show, together with other original hosts.
However, some critics said that Eat Bulaga possibly get a higher rating because of the curiosity of some televiewers about its new hosts.
They believe that the true ratings of the said noontime show would appear in the upcoming days when the hype was over.
This is what other netizens also said.
“Syempre curious yung tao. Panonoodin talaga para malaman kung paano kayo i-bash,” netizen Eds said.
“Channel 7 lang kasi talaga ang malakas ang reception ng signal!” netizen Avicane commented.
“Curious lang ang mga tao sa mga Host nila kaya maraming nanood, puro negative naman lahat ang comments nila wala man lang nagsabi na maganda ung show!” netizen Edna remarked.
Meanwhile, people are waiting for the next show of the original Eat Bulaga hosts on TV5.
