“Eat Bulaga” mainstay Joey de Leon recently reacted to “It’s Showtime” host Vice Ganda joking about the recent influx of GMA artists transferring to the Kapamilya network. In his Instagram post, Joey said, “We don’t care where we belong. Ang iniintindi namin ay TO BE LONG!Or TO BE THE LONGEST!”
Joey was alluding to the fact that Eat Bulaga is the longest-running variety show in the Philippines. Joey made the comment amidst stiff competition between the two biggest networks in the country. He ended his comment by tagging the official accounts of Michael V and “Eat Bulaga.”
Joey de Leon also took to Instagram to say: “Kumbaga sa ikakasal prenup pa lang pala kami dahil LIFE BEGINS AT 40!”
Vice Ganda is one of the most prominent hosts of “It’s Showtime” – ABS-CBN’s noontime show that is “Eat Bulaga’s” closest competitor. Back in 2015, Vice clarified that the two shows are not rivals, but only provide “alternative entertainment.”
Vice Ganda admitted that “It’s Showtime” can’t beat “Eat Bulaga’s” longevity.
It certainly seems like a noontime variety show war is in the works! However this all plays out, we can’t help but be excited. Rivalries such as this often fuel innovation. One can only imagine what the two rival variety shows will pull off to stay a cut above the competition.
