The new show led by Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon on TV5 was considered one of the most awaited shows right now as it might end the domination of Eat Bulaga on noontime ratings.
It can be recalled that the legendary trio, together with other Dabarkads announced their resignation from Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE Inc.) because of several issues, including unpaid talent fees and the planned removal of production staff.
TVJ then announced their decision to transfer to TV5 and Brightlight Productions to form their new show after leaving GMA Network.
According to some sources, the title of TVJ’s new show is ‘This is Eat’, but some reports also indicate that TVJ might change their title back to Eat Bulaga if ever they win the rights for the branding of the longest-running noontime show.
It was expected that Pauleen Luna, Paolo Ballesteros, Jose Manalo, Maine Mendoza, Ryzza Mae Dizon, Wally Bayola, Ryan Agoncillo, and Allan K would appear on the new show as they decided to leave TAPE with TVJ.
Meanwhile, the current show that was occupying the noontime slot on TV5, It’s Showtime might change their timeslot soon or possibly leave the network to maintain their schedule.
TAPE Inc. executives also vowed to watch the new show by TVJ.
