While Eat Bulaga remained the number one noontime show in the country as of writing, experts already noticed that Its rival show, It’s Showtime might take the crown soon.
In the data posted by NIELSEN, it was noticeable that the rebranded version of Eat Bulaga started strong compared to its competitors, getting 5.2% versus 3.2% gained by It’s Showtime.
But as the days passed, Eat Bulaga’s rating slowly decreased and last June 8, it was revealed that Eat Bulaga only gained 3.5% compared to 3.4% by It’s Showtime.
It’s not yet known if the move made by Eat Bulaga to invite Isko Moreno and Herlene “Hipon Girl” Budol would help them to recover this Saturday.
It can be recalled that experts already expected that the longest-running noontime show would face rating problems after its original hosts consisting of Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, Joey de Leon, Paolo Ballesteros, Jose Manalo, Maine Mendoza, Ryzza Mae Dizon, Wally Bayola, Ryan Agoncillo, and Allan K resigned on May 31, 2023.
TAPE Inc. might face more problems if ever the original hosts of Eat Bulaga finally start to air their own show on TV5 and become their new competitors.
