Eat Bulaga hosts Isko Moreno and Paolo Contis greeted E.A.T hosts Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon during their Saturday episode.
According to them, July 1 was a special day, not only for them but also for their competitors and televiewers.
However, Paolo clarified that they’re not planning to have competition with E.A.T and It’s Showtime which also celebrated their first episode on Kapuso Network.
“Mga Kapuso, espesyal tong Sabadong to para sa Eat Bulaga! dahil masasabi natin, eto ang bagong era ng noontime television habit ninyo. Alam naman natin, alam ko updated kayo sa mga nangyayari at nag-aabang kayo. Gaya ninyo, excited din po kami.” said Paolo.
“Para sa karamihan, isa itong malaking kumpetisyon. Pero para sa programa gaya ng Eat Bulaga! na 44 years na po na nagpapasaya, hindi po ito kumpetisyon, pero ito po ay aming inspirasyon,” he added.
Isko then greeted the legendary trio during the show.
“Tito Sen, Vic, and Joey, and their Dabarkads, congratulations sa inyo. Masaya kami may bago na kayong tahanan. Masaya kami kasi marami nang pagpipilian ang tao. At least, ang noontime show ngayon, para nang buffet, marami ka nang choices.” the former Manila City Mayor stated.
“Taus-puso, sampu ng aming mga kasama, staff, production, the mangement TAPE Inc., we warmly welcome and congratulate Tito, Vic, and Joey. Congratulations po sa inyo!” he also said.
It can be recalled that TVJ, together with their hosts and staff, left Eat Bulaga on May 31, 2023, after having problems with TAPE Inc.
The two also greeted It’s Showtime, calling them as ‘neighbors’.
