While negotiations are ongoing between Kris Aquino and a still-unnamed TV network, the so-called Queen of All Media still continues to observe and watch TV shows from all networks: ABS-CBN, GMA-7, and TV5.
In a July 4 interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other reporters, the actress-TV host reveals that she mandated her household to watch shows from all networks.
She noted that in the past, they only watched shows on one network, which was ABS-CBN where she was a contract star for 20 years.
Laughing, Kris said, "Nag-survey ako sa house and then nagmandate ako sa house kasi 20 years, di ba, we only watch one network?
"So nagmandate ako—'Kailangan manuod tayo ng mga ito para masanay tayo, para hindi ako tatanga tanga!'"
Among all the shows from the three networks, there were two shows that stood out: ABS-CBN's La Luna Sangre and GMA-7's I Heart Davao.
La Luna Sangre is topbilled by Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla which airs on the second primetime slot.
On the other hand, I Heart Davao features Carla Abellana, Tom Rodriguez, and Benjamin Alves. The show produced by GMA News and Public Affairs airs on the third primetime slot.
The 46-year-old actress quipped, "So now we watch three networks but I have to admit na I'm so hooked on La Luna Sangre.
"Talagang sabi ko, ang galing ni Kath[ryn]! Galing na galing ako sa kanila [ni Daniel]. Gandang ganda ako dun sa show."
At that time of the interview, La Luna Sangre had only been airing for two weeks.
She said, "It's been on two weeks, siguro I just missed three. Nagandahan talaga ako dun.
"Sa kabila naman, yung I Heart Davao, gandang ganda ako."
PEP pointed out that it's a good thing that the shows do not go head-to-head in terms of timeslots to which Kris agreed. "Thank you Lord, di ba? At least di nag-aaway."
Coincidentally, La Luna Sangre and I Heart Davao are also included in the Social Wit List published according to the New York-based international media business website WorldScreen.com.
Social Wit List features the top 10 most-buzzed-about programs worldwide.
It was in October 2016 when Kris first revealed that she has been watching all TV networks after she left ABS-CBN.
She had been regularly watching the Kapamilya rom-com series Till I Met You and the Kapuso programs Alyas Robin Hood and Karelasyon.
