It’s showtime host, Vhong Navarro, admitted that no one would surpass the status of legendary noontime show trio Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, Vhong said that while they decided to keep their competition with the Dabarkads by transferring to GMA Network, they said that they could not match TVJ.
“Una sa lahat, walang makakatumbas sa TVJ. Idol ‘yan eh. Isa sila sa mga nagsimula ng noontime show at sila ang pinakamatagal. Kumbaga, wala diyang papalit, susunod na lang,” Vhong said.
Meanwhile, another Its Showtime host Ogie Alcasid said that they have different style of entertaining people and they’re not trying to replicate the legendary trio.
“Ang ‘Showtime’ kasi meron din kaming ibang style. Kung ang TVJ may style, meron ding style ang ‘Showtime.’” Ogie said.
“Kumbaga sa pagkain, iba ‘yung adobo at iba rin ‘yung ibang putahe. Magkaiba eh. Mahirap ikumpara. At sang-ayon din ako kay pareng Vhong na OGs talaga natin ang TVJ. Sinasaluduhan natin ‘yan, hinahangaan natin,” he added.
People were now waiting for the clash between It’s Showtime and the upcoming show of TVJ on July 1.
Meanwhile, observers that the rebranded version of Eat Bulaga would also do something so they would not be overshadowed by the two noontime shows.
