TV5’s E.A.T still considered the ‘king’ of noontime shows as the newest program produced by former Eat Bulaga hosts Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon led the rating contest on July 1, 2023, Monday.
According to the data released by AGB Nielsen on July 4, 2023, ‘E.A.T’ got a 6.3% rating, while their other two competitors, Eat Bulaga and It’s Showtime, which both aired under GMA Network, achieved a rating of 3.3% and 3.0%.
But despite the higher rating, several netizens complained that E.A.T seems ‘boring’ because of the lack of segments.
Observers also noticed that despite the limited reach of TV5, E.A.T still achieved to get a higher rating, a sign that TVJ’s fanbase followed them.
They’re also surprised that Eat Bulaga still surpassed It’s Showtime which was a good sign that the noontime show produced by TAPE Inc. was still getting decent ratings.
However, they’re more curious if It’s Showtime would get a higher rating if they ever switched places with Eat Bulaga.
