What do you think of the new VIVA TV coverage so far?

BuLoyBuLoy Member PExer
hey folks, its been about 2 months now that the PBA 2000 has been going on. so what do think about the new coverage? like the influx of movie stars at halftime making it look like a "variety show" of sorts. and how about the new commentators... like that brief stint of Bong Agustin ... who is now replaced by that Benjie guy... whatever his last name is .. i forget.. and how about that Tommy Manotoc and his son .. Bj? tama ba? i told you im bad with names...basta sila ni Paolo Trillo yung young ones there.. and Anthony Suntay finally does some Anchor work sometimes... what you guys think? ill throw in my thoughts after a few of you have responded. whadya tink guys?!! :)

    Gimmick talaga nila na super daming artista yung nipapa-watch nila live...para ma-enganyo yung masa manood.
    Personally, I enjoy watching the PBA live because I enjoy watching basketball...not beause of some stupid tv & movie personalities. In fact, mas naiirita nga ako manood pag nakakakita ako ng feeling na artista, eh! Feel nila sila yung pinapanood ng PBA fans! Haayyy, minsan pag iniisip ko na baka makita ko si Carlos Agassi or si Antoinette Taus sa philsports, parang gusto ko na lang ibenta yung ticket ko sa scalper! Sana naman tigilan na ni Vic del Rosario tong gimmick niya na 'to...!

    Anyway, regarding the coverage, ok lang...pero honestly, parang mas gusto ko pa din yung sa vintage. Wala nang arte-arte pa, tapos yung mga analysts mas marunong. Parang mashadong madaming ka-artehan yung sa viva, eh. I agree with you, parang variety show nga talaga! When will they realize that most of the basketball fans watch the PBA because they like BASKETBALL and not SHOWBIZNES??

    Para sa akin, halos pareho lang yung coverage nila, nag iba lang yung ibang commentators. Nakakainis yung mga halftime pa cute shows.

    Si Noli Eala, mayabang ang dating palaging mali young grammar pag ingles.
    Dr. J pa rin pinakamagaling mag analyze pero masyadong boring yung commentary niya. Parang wala siyang gana.
    Quinito sobrang over exag pa rin.
    Gusto ko si Tommy Manotoc. OK yung mga insights niya.
    Si Ed Picson maganda pa rin ang voice.
    Si Paolo Trillo dapat mag ingles. Parang bakla magtagalog.
    Si TJ Manotoc medyo OK na. Nung una hindi ko siya marinig kasi kinakain yung mga sinasabi pero mukhang nasasanay na. Paano nga ba siya nakapasok na analyst kaagad? Wala naman siyang experience.
    Anthony Suntay should stay on the sidelines. Trying hard pa ang commentary niya. Baka masanay rin pag marami na siyang games na cover.
    Pero favorite ko pa rin si Janelle So!

    okay si tj manotoc...tommy manotoc puwede na rin...kaya lang yung mga comment niya minsan...ah basta...the old ones like ed picson and andy jao are great...anthony suntay and paolo trillo should do the pregame...i feel mas bagay sila doon...they can't really analyze the game kasi...i hope they get the other coaches...joaqui trillo did the espn coverage in the smb-tanduay game

    Michael: i heard kaya kinuha si Paolo at TJ na maganalyst kahit young pa sila kasi gusto ng Viva ng maghalo na ng young and new faces. kasi puro nalang mga gurang tulad ni Andy Jao at Ed picson. si Quinito ok pa, pero medyo over exag lang. si Andy naman, tama ka, parang inaantok, tuloy inaantok din yung mga viewers sa gana na. personally i think its about time they added some new faces. its a fresh change, i mean you cant expect Andy, Ed, and Quinito to be doing the games even if they're on wheelchairs already. kahit mga bata pa at walang experience yung mga bago, they'll learn naman eh. we're just too young to remember but Quinito and company were all rookies once :) More power to the PBA!!!

    miss nyo ba si chino trinidad? ;)
  • michaelmichael Member PExer
    woverine,
    that's one thing that makes the VIVA coverage much much better now!!!! Wala nang masyadong commentary si Chino. I'll take the new guys over this guy any day.
  • hangtimehangtime Member PExer
    tama si michael,

    id rather Janlelle So anyday rather than Chino :) have any of you seen her in person?
  • wolverinewolverine Ang pagbabalik. PExer
    excuse me... com. chino trinidad na nga pala.

    ;)

    Good riddance to Bong Agustin.

    Benjie Santiago is a veteran of the PBA radio broadcasts and PBL coverage.
  • michaelmichael Member PExer
    hangtime,
    She attended a pinoyexchange christmas party last year yata. I think. So some of the PEx posters have met her.

    i dont think its changed so much, pero thank God wala ng interview si Dong sa mga best player. useless din. nagmumukang RX 93.1 ...parang, if you play well enuf, well ask you really dumb questions so you can greet your family and friends for free!! ... da new commentators are alright. tama si michael, da Manotocs have been improving. i guess nasasanay na sila. si Tommy naman, i guess with what he's accomplished he has the right naman to his opinions, as viewers we dont have to neccesarily agree with him. just take his 2 cents worth i guess. at least its a fresh change from the boring Andy Jao, or the over hyper Quinito.. si TJ ang ok sa kanya wala syang bias. he just gives it as it is. pero its so surprising na kahit bata pa sya, marami-rami na syang alam, baka natuto sa erpat. si Bong Agustin... forget it... tapos na daw ang 1st conference? :) accdng to Bong, 2 mins nalang ang 1st conf. dyus ko. nice to see a bunch of different faces doing the games now. more variety. but we sure do miss the great smoking Joe, God bless his soul. tuloy, we'er always looking for a cardiac finish ...
  • yUCK_Fou!yUCK_Fou! Boo Yah! PExer
    so far, ok naman. kase i'm a billiard freak. napapansin ko na panay ang coverage nila ng mga pool events. and knowing Boss Vic, alam ko billiard fanatic rin yun kaya ok ang Viva TV para sa akin.
  • yehveybey_14_gsmbyehveybey_14_gsmb *represent!* PExer
    well..for me okayz naman ang viva tv, mag kasama din naman sila eh---viva-vintage minsan ang sinasabi nila hindi lang viva,pero i miss the commercial of vtv yung nag-drive yung guy papuntang house tapos may kakantang girls "if you want me today,i have your night,when the night is alive" vtv na!!! hehehe! pareho parin.....and si quinito medyo biased every game ng alaska [maka-alska kasi yun eh halata naman] parati nyang pinupuri talaga ang alaska mas-alo na yung championship ng governor's sabi pa nya nung naabutan na ng alaska ang smb..."now, it is our time to celebrate!" ano yun??? basta si ed picson and and jao tandem parin ako!!! anywayz, ive seen janelle so in person already.....okz lang....ang puti nya sobra! and i think bf nya si trillo...yung baguhan! :)

    dag-dag lang:

    kilala ko kasi si antoinette and tom, parati talagang na nonood si toni dahil maka-purefods talaga sya, alam ko binibigyan sila ng ticket ng purefoods eh......
  • stephsteph schizophrenic! PExer
    hmmm...parang mas ok pa rin yung coverage ng vintage before compared to ngayon na nandyan na yung viva...tama c xiaoyu eh..parang puro showbiz na sinisingit!! :o

    yung celebration last night sa araneta ang dami munang song and dance numbers. pero d people who watched wanted to see the awarding and not these viva artists naman... :confused:

    para tuloy dragging dba? o well...ganun talaga gmik nila e..k lang naman cguro as log as there's still basketball, and yun yung inuuna nila right?! :)

    Sarap
    Maging
    Beermen fan!!

    yey!! =D
  • aLLysH*aLLysH* Member PExer
    basically same comment... super showbiz na ang dating. the silver anniversary turned out like an entertainment variety show. yung mga song and dance numbers nakikita na natin lagi pag mga anniversaries ng mga shows... parang nanood ako ng eat bulaga or mtb eh :confused:

    and what abt MYSTICA's (?) halftime number few wks back?! that drew a big roar from the crowd, but i read somewhere that viva-vintoage was admonished by the PBA. i felt it was obscene na... disgusting... soooo gross... grabe! :o

    as for the technical aspect of the coverage, ok lang, pareho pa rin ng dati.

    the best thing that happened to the TV broadcast panel is TJ MANOTOC. he's young and good-looking, and he surely got lots of potential. he's very knowledgeable of the game. and has a very good command of both english & filipino. ok and ok cya! :D
  • BuLoyBuLoy Member PExer
    tama ka aLLysH*, :D i think TJ Manotoc has been the best additition to the broadcasrt panel in a long time. actually, nung start nya medyo ang hina ng voice nya at bululol yung mga words nya minsan. but to my surprise he has been improving so much lately. parang every game nasasanay na sya at gumnagaling sya. nice to have a young analyst. :cool: mas nakaka relate tayong mga Gen-X. and i think its about time they start merging in some young blood.. pero balita ko naggaling daw sya ng MBA? reporter ata sya for awhile don? ... hmm.. im sure those pipol in ABS must be scratching their heads now kung bakit nila to binitawan. ... pansin nyo na he's been doing all the out-of-town games? :)
  • HotcHickHotcHick Member PExer
    has anyone noticed that Ryan Gregorio can be seen almost everyday now? he does a lot of the PBA lately, plus, he almost always does the PBL. medyo over-exposed na ata sya ha?! :) tapos minsan naririnig din sya ng driver ko sa radio! over! kinuha na nya lahat!! :) pero cute naman sya :) kaso medyo short lang sya eh :D

    I used to get really pissed off pag si TJ Manotoc yung analyst sa game. I used to think kasi na he lacked the basketball smarts of a Quinito Henson and the magnetism of an Ed Picson. Pero now, grabe, sobrang laki ng inimprove niya! Two thumbs up for this guy, I swear.
    Paolo Trillo and Anthony Suntay should stick to their day job...maging courtside evers na lang sila. Mashado pang raw...hindi pa pwede maging analyst.
    Borgy Manotoc's eye-candy, no doubt about that...but man, PLEASE LANG ANO, paki-turuan nga yang batang yan. I used to have this huge crush on him kasi he was interviewed once and he seemed really articulate and smart...pero when he joined the Viva team...:rolleyes: Sorry pero nung binigay ni Lord sa Manotocs yung talent sa sportscasting, naka-payong ata sha. Cute na kung cute, articulate na kung articulate...pero hello, saksakan sha ng boring. Sobrang monotonous ng voice niya, sabay walang kabuhay-buhay yung expression niya! Turuan niyo muna, please lang. I remember one time ni-interview niya si Juday. So, he goes "Hi Judy Anne! I hear you just released an album(or something to that effect)? Can you tell us something about that?"...and then, he forgets to give her the mic! So parang bumubulong ang kawawang Juday sa tv. That's, like, the most basic thing that an "interviewer" should know! Wala lang...I don't want him to be sacked or anything like that...I like him. Turuan lang sana...and sana maging mas emphatic sha. Medyo boring talaga, eh.
    Ayoko kay Tommy Manotoc. No particular reason...basta ayoko sha. Bad sha. Ever. :angry: Sabi ba naman niya Shell's not deserving of being in 1st place daw!!! Hmph. Hate ko na sha for life dahil sa statement niyang yan.
    Tsaka balak ba niya dalhin yung buong angkan niya sa PBA?? Pano naman ako?? Pano ako makakakuha ng trabaho niyan?? :angry:
    :D
