Paolo Contis denied that news that ‘Eat Bulaga’ was set to stop airing on July 29 amid the reports about the noontime show’s lack of sponsors.
In an interview with Pep.ph, Paolo debunked the rumor and even said that they’re preparing to celebrate the 44th anniversary of the show that would be held on the same date.
Paolo refused to elaborate on their surprises this upcoming 44th anniversary of Eat Bulaga.
But he already expected that they were going to receive criticism again from the netizens.
“Malamang maba-bash na naman kami,” the actor said.
Contis also said that Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE Inc.) officials were satisfied with the number of sponsors, the performance of their talents, and their talents so there’s no reason for Eat Bulaga to end.
It can be recalled that veteran columnist Cristy Fermin revealed the said information, asking TAPE Inc. to clarify the issue.
TAPE Inc. then released a statement saying that there was no truth about the circulating rumors.
“‘Eat Bulaga’ segments are doing great, lalo na yung segment ni Yorme [Isko Moreno] and Buboy [Villar],” Atty. Maggie Garduque of TAPE Inc. said.
“Ang ‘Eat Bulaga’ ay para sa tao at hanggang maraming manonood, ang tumatangkilik, patuloy ang ‘Eat Bulaga’ sa pagbibigay ng saya at tulong sa mga kababayan natin,” she added.
