It’s Showtime, binigyan lang ng tatlong buwan para lagpasan ang Eat Bulaga?

Cristy Fermin’s co-host, Wendell Alvarez, claimed that GMA only gave It’s Showtime 3 months to prove that they’re worthy to stay on their network.

In their show, “Showbiz Now Na!” Wendell disclosed that It’s Showtime only received a short contract.


“Mayroon akong mga naririnig na para bang ibig sabihin pinapabayaan lang sila, ‘sige ibibigay namin ‘to sa inyo, gusto niyo ‘to diba’ kasi aim na talaga nila noon na mapunta sa GMA,” said Wendell. “Syempre sasabihin ng mga negosyante, ‘sige ibibigay namin sa inyo, pero gawin ninyo ang nararapat’,”

Cristy then added that the network wanted It’s Showtime to maintain a good rating.

Wendell then added that It’s Showtime also allegedly ordered to knock Eat Bulaga down.


There were reports that the Kapamilya noontime show was also pressured due to the challenge of maintaining a high rating.

It’s Showtime’s pilot episode on GMA last Saturday was considered successful after the surpassed their competitor Eat Bulaga’s rating.

According to GMA Network, It’s Showtime led the ratings at 6.8% vs. 4.4% of Eat Bulaga.


The good start of It’s Showtime may reduce the pressure on the hosts and the renewal of their contract was a big possibility.
