The first episode of the new noontime show of Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, Joey de Leon and other former Eat Bulaga hosts was considered a success.
It can be recalled that hosts and some staff left Eat Bulaga and GMA Network to be with TVJ on May 31, 2023, but it seems that not only them followed the legendary trio.
Some familiar advertisers can also be seen supporting the show, including grocery giant Puregold.

Meanwhile, the competitor of E.A.T, ‘Eat Bulaga’ has reportedly had problems with their sponsors, and some of them demanded to return the money they paid after the sudden rebranding of the noontime show.
Having problems with sponsors might become a valid reason for TAPE Inc. to cancel their contract with GMA, as they’re paying millions of pesos every month to air their show on the Kapuso Network.
Meanwhile, observers believed that GMA has not problem with replacing Eat Bulaga as they’re also having contract to air ABS-CBN’s top-rated noontime show ‘It’s Showtime’ which already competing with TVJ for many years.
