Vice Ganda and the love team of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla are among ABS-CBN's most visible stars for the first half of 2018.




When a celebrity is considered reliable and bankable, it is not surprising for him or her to be tapped for television shows—whether for a teleserye or for a hosting job.

These multi-talented stars are allowed by their mother network to showcase their abilities not only in one TV show, but in as many programs as they can in order to hone their craft.

Some people might even ask: Are these celebrities already overexposed?

Definitely, fans of these celebrities are happy to see their idols more than five times a week.

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) lists down 10 celebrities from ABS-CBN who are seen in several TV shows six to seven days a week during the first six months of 2018.

To determine how visible these stars are in their network, PEP.ph used these parameters: total number of TV shows, total number of days their TV shows are airing (or were aired), and its total airtime and period of each show's run from January 1, 2018 to June 30, 2018.

This does not include commercials, endorsements, and guest appearances in anthologies and/or talk shows.

1. Vice Ganda

TV Shows: It's Showtime (Mondays to Saturdays, 2 hours and 45 minutes, present)
Pilipinas Got Talent (Saturdays to Sundays, 1 hour and 30 minutes, January 6 - April 29, 2018)
Gandang Gabi Vice (Sunday, 1 hour, present)

Vice Ganda tops the list as ABS-CBN's Most Visible Star since he appears in his two longest-running shows: the noontime show It's Showtime, which runs for three hours from Monday to Saturday, and his Sunday late-night talk show Gandang Gabi Vice.

From January 6 to April 29, Vice served as a judge in Pilipinas Got Talent's sixth season, which is why his fans were able to see him during weekends while PGT aired.


 

2. Billy Crawford

TV Shows: It's Showtime (Mondays to Saturdays, 2 hours and 45 minutes, present)
