    Ikaw Na Sana was the network's answer to Claudine and Rico's Mula Sa Puso. It went back-to-back with the first run of Gobingo na nakalaban naman ng Esperanza. It was funny because there was a contest on Channel 2 na ang title is "Mula sa Puso ni Esperanza" and may ad naman ang GMA na "Ikaw Na Sana ang manalo sa Gobingo!"

    Then came Angelu De Leon's controversial pregnancy. Siya pa dapat ang magiging lead actress ng next GMA-Viva TV drama na Ganyan Kita Kamahal, a story about two warring families. Carmina Villaroel took over her role, while Gladys Reyes, who played contravida in Ikaw Na Sana, also played antagonist to Carmina.

    After that short-lived TV drama, nag-venture ang GMA and Viva sa isang adult-themed drama series, Halik Sa Apoy. Nakitaan nila ng potential si Ynez Veneracion in Ganyan Kita Kamahal so she played lead opposite Carmina Villaroel. Tirso Cruz III was father to Dino Guevarra and Kim Delos Santos played the role of Carmina's sister. The networked capitalized on the popularity of Kim and Dino who were launched in TGIS and who later had a movie Ikaw Lamang.

    Di Ba't Ikaw replaced Halik Sa Apoy in the primetime block of GMA. Yes, it was the first network-produced soap. Starring Jessa Zaragoza (Patrice of Villa Quintana), I remember Alfie Lorenzo even comparing her with a figure-less Claudine. As the show was short-lived, GMA decided to replace Di Ba't Ikaw with Ghostfighter when the series ended in November.

    Mia Gracia was shown before Saksi. I remember Mike Enriquez promoting the show as a Filipino Telenovela. Ito ang sagot ng TAPE sa Marimar ng RPN 9 which aired at a later timeslot at 6:30 PM. Eventually, GMA acquired two Latin telenovelas, Agujetas De Color De Rosa and in the new year of 1997, Pobre Niņa Rica.

    I was a bit confused with Di ba't Ikaw. They aired a promo, one was that they launch the series with a telesine-version on a Sunday night with the series proper premiering the next evening. I was a bit confused with that (in the sense that they had the series all wrapped into one TV movie before going on as a regular soap opera the next day). Then again, I could be wrong (i wasn't able to watch the telesine neither was I able to finish the soap's run).

    teleserye_analyst: Davao, Cebu and Boracay was re-aired too quite recently (around 2007) on RPN's short-lived noontime block "RPN USA". Along with its roster of classic telenovelas (before the word "teleserye" became the generic term for succeeding Pinoy soaps) are old comedy hits like the one with Redford White and Eric Quizon as well as John en Marsha (which continued on 2 years ago with the spin-off, "John En Shirley")

    Speaking of teleseryes, sino nakakalala sa sopa ng GMA noon. One of the supporting characters there was the gay guy assistant of Dingdong Dantes' character in Dyesebel. the title ends something like "...Bintana". Back then, I thought that guy was Ariel Ignacio's look-a-like (except that he looks taller). Recurring scene I notice is the one with the staircase outside one of the character's houses.

    -----
    Rerunning soaps and anthology series is quite rare in our local TVlandia. So far, some old GMA-produced soaps circa 2000-2004 as well as (Sana ay Ikaw na Nga, Ang Iibigin ay Ikaw, GMA Telesine all in QTV with the latter renamed as "QTV Gems"), RPN (Cebu, Boracay, and Davao), and ABS (Spirits on Studio 23, Super Inggo, Marina, Pangako Sa'**, Wansapanataym, and Komiks), and TAPE (Connie Reyes on Camera on Zoe TV) were re-aired recently.

    Sana magkaroon rin tayo ng sariling version ng SOAPnet gaya ng sa US in order for us to relive those unforgettable shows from the past. So far kasi, ABS-CBN's TFC channel, Kapamilya Channel, is the only one that airs old ABS-CBN shows but it airs overseas.

    About Di Ba't Ikaw: The Sunday night premiere, dubbed as the world premiere of the soap, was actually four episodes long. It was the first four episodes of the series. The following day, nagsimula naman bale ang episode 5.

    I think the soap opera you're referring to is Villa Quintana, starring Donna Cruz, Keempee De Leon, Jessa Zaragoza, Isabel Granada and Lander vera Perez. Philip Lazaro, Dingdong Dantes' assistant in Dyesebel, was a nilupak vendor and friend of Keempee (Isagani in the soap). And yes, it did have a lot of those scenes with the staircase. The same house was used in Anna Karenina, after the owners sold the house to the Monteclaros. Of course, Lynette and Isagani took their own lives as Romeo and Juliet did.

    The first GMA soap to actually be under the helm of GMA Telebabad was Ikaw Lang Ang Mamahalin (Angelika Dela Cruz, Sunshine Dizon, Cogie Domingo, Sherwin Ordoņez, James Blanco, LJ Moreno and Mark Anthony Fernandez). They were having problems looking for a pair for Angelika Dela Cruz, so she was paired off with different men: Sherwin; a model named Russell C Mon who later became a soft porn actor; Mark Anthony Fernandez who was killed in the series because he got into drugs and drag racing after the Claudine Baretto breakup; and James Blanco, whom she ended up with in the end.

    Because of the popularity of Pangako Sa **, GMA decided to put up a soap that will rival the show. It was Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga, co-produced with Viva. They were pitting Dingdong against jericho and Tanya against Kristine.

    The third soap of GMA on its Telebabad primetime block was Kung Mawawala Ka. Cogie Domingo was killed off in Ikaw Lang Ang Mamahalin, where he was briefly paired off with Chynna Ortaleza after Sunshine Dizon left the show. The following Monday, he was Carlitos Valiente, son of the town's representative to Congress played by Orestes Ojeda.

    The fourth soap of GMA on Telebabad was Ang Iibigin Ay Ikaw. It had Alice Dixon, Lani Mercado, Christopher De Leon and Richard Gomez as the leads, but it also had AJ Eigenmann and Karen Delos Reyes. Karen was killed, but later it was revealed that Alice and Richard had another child who was stolen by Rio Locsin. That daughter was portrayed by Angel Locsin who was briefly paired off with Polo Ravales in the second season, Ang Iibigin Ay Ikaw Pa Rin.

    After Ikaw Lang Ang Mamahalin, Angelika was paired off with victor Neri in Habang Kapiling Ka. This marked the comeback of Snooky Serna to the small screen. Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga was later replaced by Twin Hearts which also had Karylle and Dennis Trillo.

    thanks for the info about "ganyan kita kamahal"...while i was typing that whole bit about the co-produced soaps GMA had in the '90s, hindi ko maalala 'yung title nung isa pang viva-GMA soap that definitely had carmina as the lead...

    i also remember 'yung "agujetas..." and "pobre niņa rica", which were, i think, the first two latin soaps that GMA ever acquired--especially with the advent then of "thalia mania". that was also the time na GMA pitted its entire daytime-to-evening line-up as a whole primetime block (they called it "11/11 GMA primetime", dahil from "katok mga misis" at 11am until the end of "GMA network news" at 11pm ang itinuring nilang primetime) against what ABS-CBN called then as their "primetime 5:00-to-sawa" line-up.

    mabanggit ko rin, still on the subject of soaps...may isang afternoon soap din (na co-produced) which GMA "transplanted" to the early-evening slot in january '97--it was "lyra", starring a very young (and very cute) shaina magdayao in the title role.

    i didn't see much of "de buena familia" myself, but i loved how the gil-eigenmann family (rosemarie, cherie, mark, michael) was a casting coup in itself.

    actually, this drama series (which i don't consider as "just" a soap, being that it was a weekly program--parang "a notch higher" ba?) came after "boracay," "cebu" and "davao" (which were also big RPN productions themselves).

    si mark gil lang ang nasa "boracay", if i remember right...dina bonnevie naman was the lead female there, at sa club panoly ang exact setting nila doon. "cebu" was the first RPN drama that had the gil-eigenmann family as leads. pero ang mga bida naman sa "davao" were dawn zulueta, julio diaz and rustom padilla, along with marita zobel and the late eddie rodriguez. if i'm not mistaken, the peque gallaga-lore reyes tandem directed all three series, which were among the last big in-house productions RPN ever had before they became what they are now...

    So far, RPN's back with at least some of its well-known shows like X-Files but nevertheless, being under the blocktime of Solar. I'm really hoping that the guys from RPN themselves would be able to find the time to improve their facilities and not just rely solely to Solar. No wonder RPN now goes under the name C/S 9 now, glad that the RPN identity is still being kept alive by its lone news and public affairs group, they still have to be at par with its fellow news programs from the other networks, technology and delivery-wise.

    Same goes to IBC, which I think have gone good to average to worst for almost 20 years since it sequestration.

    Guys, have you remembered ABS's attempt to try live-simulcasting its former noontime variety show, MTB with Studio 23? That was really a huge event, not only was it the premiere of ABS-CBN's then newest noontime show. Not sure how it turned out though, the 12nn simulcast was largely discontinued, except for its live airing of Myx from cable.

  12. #1032
    yeah, that's true, malaki ang naitulong ng solar sa RPN throughout the past 2 or 3 years that the company has "blocktimed" for the network, although the local content they tried to produce (under the "kasama mo" slogan back in '06--anyone remember "dalawang tisoy" with freddie webb and eddie gutierrez, pat-p daza's "showbiz ka!" or ruffa's "philippines' next top model", among many others?) failed quite miserably. at mataas pa naman ang expectations ko noon na may talagang magtatagal among those local shows they made.

    nakakapanghinayang lang siguro, in my opinion, that the quality and output of the post-EDSA/late '80s-early '90s RPN was totally gone by the 2000s--perhaps, mainly due to that whole sequestration thing. their old in-house shows that time like "buddy en sol", "young love, sweet love", the big dramas (as we mentioned earlier here), or even nora aunor's long-running "superstar" are all but memories now, dahil parang "tumandang paurong" ang RPN--even more with IBC.

    as far as their news coverage is concerned, given that both networks are still closely identified with the government (though not as much as NBN which is government-owned, period), siguro hindi maaalis na may bias pa rin sa gobyerno ang pagbabalita nila as long as both networks aren't privatized. and as long as they're not privatized, even their news gathering facilities would still be pretty much backward, at maiiwan at maiiwan lang sila sa kung ano'ng meron sila ngayon sa broadcast city (which was once one of the most modern broadcast facilities in the '70s and '80s).

    Shaina's mom in the series was Eula Valdes. Both transferred to ABS-CBN afterwards.

    parang "hybrid" na rin siguro 'to ng mga naging programa nila...for one thing, there was "tough hits 2000", based on the TVJ "tough hits" segment noon sa "discorama" (which also spawned several volumes of "tough hits" albums). there also was "alam ba news?", their spoof news segment ("anchored" by vic, joey and val sotto)--something which was also done in "TODAS" ("TODA[y']S news").

    aside from val sotto, kasama rin sa cast sina yoyong martirez, ali sotto, candy pangilinan and jenine desiderio. special participation din ang referee ng "alaxan gladiators" segment noon ng "eat bulaga", known to audiences as "referee tauro pwisto" who "refereed" the "kwistyuuun!" Q&A-style jokes segment on the show (tauro talaga ang last name niya, but i forgot his first name...the "pwisto" came from his pronunciation of the word "pwesto" sa "alaxan gladiators").

    GMA replayed this during the early-morning hours back in 2000, as part of their 50th anniversary back then.

    ito, medyo random uli...

    i'm sure a lot of you remember VTV on IBC-13--what was originally known as VTV primetime network, then vintage television after a year...

    of course, their "prime program" was the PBA, alongside other sporting events such as the marlboro tour, boxing ("blow by blow") and billiards. but--especially when they were known as vintage television--they also had a good share of entertainment shows.

    among them were "wow!" and "goin' bayabas"--both which, ironically, came about after the departure of al tantay and edgar mortiz from ABC (where they handled "wow mali!" and "tropang trumpo", respectively). "wow!" became their version of "wow mali!", pero a little bit on the "sexier" side (given that rosanna roces, and later, ara mina, hosted the show...ara mina was paired with keempee de leon when she took over). "goin' bayabas" naman was, obviously, their answer to "tropang trumpo" with smokey manaloto--a former "tropa" cast member--leading the cast...

    there was also "rebyu", a youth-oriented magazine show hosted by RX93.1's chico and delamar (this was their first regular TV show during the height of their radio popularity), "takot ka ba sa dilim?" (not to be confused with "erik matti's kagat ng dilim", another horror series on the same channel a couple of years later), a horror anthology which was, if i'm not mistaken, co-produced with viva television (which would merge with VTV later to become vivatv), and "sine VTV", a telesine block-cum-drama anthology hosted by boots anson-roa (who, incidentally, would become IBC's president at the time VTV still had their blocktime contract with the network).

    and true to vintage's nature as a sports program producer, they had weekly sports shows, too, like "hot stuff" with anthony suntay and chino trinidad, the horse-racing magazine "KKK: kabayo, karera, karerista", and of course, the "blow by blow" boxing matches (kung saan unang nakilala bilang boksingero si manny pacquiao).

    curiously, during the first week of VTV as vintage television in 1998, muntik nang magkaroon ng falling-out between vintage and IBC--this was, if i remember right, due to IBC (then under the management of retired soldier mitch templo) airing/simulcasting ABS-CBN's MBA (metropolitan basketball association) especially during its inauguration, kung saan naapektuhan 'ata ang dapat sana'y airing noon ng birthday special ni robert jaworski which VTV produced.

    as a result, vintage sports' commentators all wore a black band as a sign of "protest", and never mentioned IBC's name during their coverages (whereas, prior to that, they would always say "VTV on IBC"). pero mukhang naging maayos ang lahat especially when boots anson-roa took over as IBC president...she managed to squeeze in some in-house programming during VTV's hours on primetime, and also enlisted the help of vintage/VTV to provide sports news--and even a main anchor (in the person of the former attorney noli eala)--for their late-night newscast back then (at that time, it was already known as "IBC balita ngayon").

    Who can remember Entertainment Today with Lyn Ching, or ETChing? It started out as a segment of Saksi, tapos naging semi-magazine show, semi-showbiz program. They first aimed to produce a showbiz proram that does not discuss chismis, kaya nga yung ending theme nito, may lyrics na "walang chismis ang ETChing, tapat na showbiz balitaan..."

    Nung nag-end ang almost decade-long run ng Movie Magazine which eventually became Channel S, naging Saturday na ang ETChing, Sundays naman ang Startalk against Channel 2's Showbiz Linggo. Nagpalit ng timeslot ang dalawang show because ni-request ni Osang na gusto niya ng Sunday off, kaya nung napunta sa Sunday ang ETChing, naging S Files na ang name nito.

    ^I read that in Butch Francisco's column a few months ago. Lyn Ching had to leave the show kasi magpapakasal na ata siya that time(?), her co-host Paolo Bediones was left manning the show which was renamed S Files. Best tandem siguro ng S Files non ay an-g quartet nina Paolo, Richard Gomez, Joey Marquez, and Janice de Belen. Ironically, Paolo's three co-hosts are subjects of showbiz gossip and controversies, siya lang iyung hindi (so far).

    Something happened and Janice have to leave the show, thus she was replaced by Pia Guanio. Richard also have to leave the show for last year's senatorial elections. He was replaced by still-ABS-CBN talent John Lapuz (since up til now, he's being managed by ABS-CBN's Star Magic).

    Eventually, the show was cancelled last year and was replaced by Showbiz Central. Intact from S Files are Pia and John, in addition to Raymond Gutierrez, Ruffa Mae Quinto and Mo Twister.

    Sa Startalk, di ba Lolit Solis, Boy Abunda and Kris Aquino were the original roster of host for that show? When I found out about that, it's kinda feel weird when I see Boy and Kris hosting the Buzz every Sunday, ironic it's like Startalk minus Lolit who still stayed on as host for the show which rules Saturday afternoon.

    Kiss muna yung movie nina antoinette, sunshine, dingdong and polo

    anyway...'yang sitcom na "kiss muna" 'ata ang isa sa mga naging "mitsa" ng pagkaka-develop-an nina jomari at ara, lalo't dahil mag-"love interest" ang mga respective characters nila. gary estrada was also part of the sitcom (his character's name was versanti--an obvious play on versace), pero bowed out after a month or two.

    "Sana ay Ikaw na Nga" also had an all-star cast to back up Dingdong Dantes and Tanya Garcia. They had Jaclyn Jose, Tirso Cruz III, Eric Quizon, Roxanne Barcelo, Angelu de Leon, Bobby Andrews (actually Angelu and Bobby were considered as second leads), Elizabeth Oropesa, Chinggoy Alonso, Wendell Ramos, Ryan Eigenmann, Meryll Soriano, Red Sternberg, Tita Munoz, Maricar de Mesa and Chito Ponce Enrile. However, the biggest casting coup that "Sana ay Ikaw na Nga" made was the inclusion of comedian/TV host Joey de Leon in the series as Dr. Ricardo Peron, the long-lost father of Tanya Garcia and the true love of Jaclyn Jose's character. Nabigyan ng maraming dramatic highlights si Joey sa show and this was one of the reasons why tinutukan ito ng marami.... pati na ako.

    Joey's inclusion in "Sana ay Ikaw na Nga" prompted ABS-CBN to include MTB main host John Estrada in "Kay Tagal kang Hinintay" opposite Lorna Tolentino. However, unlike Joey who re established himself as master TV host/comedian after his stint in the GMA drama, John Estrada stuck to the soap opera genre at tuluyan nang iniwan ang noontime TV hosting stint....

    My all time favorite gag show aside from "Bubble Gang" is "Mixed NUTS" which marked Vic Sotto and Joey De Leon's comeback to GMA in 1994....
