PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
“IT’S SHOWTIME TRIUMPHS OVER NEW RIVAL PROGRAM IN NATIONAL TV RATINGS. It’s Showtime registered high TV ratings yesterday (January 28) when it recorded a national TV rating of 12.3% across urban and rural homes in the country, based on data from Kantar Media. It beat TV5’s new program Wowowillie, which only got 6.5% and suffered a three-point drop from the 9.1% TV rating of its pilot telecast last Saturday (January 26).
"The fans of It’s Showtime, meanwhile, remained glued to the Kapamilya noontime show because it got a national TV rating of 12.1% last Saturday. It’s Showtime’s new offerings include the celebrity edition of “Bida Kapamilya” featuring the famous celebrity families, “Kalokalike,” a search for people who can best imitate their popular showbiz idols based on appearance, behavior, and performance, and “Makina Matibay,” where a group of people competes with a machine to determine which of them does better certain mechanical tasks such as scraping coconuts and crushing ice.
"Party with the beefed up It’s Showtime with hosts Anne, Vice Ganda, Vhong Navarro, Billy Crawford, Karylle, Kuya Kim Atienza, Teddy Corpuz, Jugs Jugueta, Jhong Hilario, Ryan Bang, Coleen Garcia, at Eric ‘Eruption’ Tai, Mondays through Fridays at 12:30 PM and on Saturdays at 12NN on ABS-CBN. Watch it from Mondays to Fridays at 12:30 PM.
