EAT.. BULAGA is Moving... Again?.. from 9 to 2 to 7 to..



IF the rumors are true then Eat...Bulaga may relocate to ABC 5 in a few months' time. The longest running noontime show (its silver anniversary this year) on Philippine television has made several networks its home in the past (RPN 9, IBC 13, ABS-CBN 2--and its present network GMA-7).

Our friend Paeng has heard some rumors (placed in the comments here) similar to those heard by Oscar Jerome: that the new management of ABC-5 is trying to pirate The Probe Team, Mike Enriquez and Eat...Bulaga.

2004 is the end of Eat...Bulaga's contract with GMA-7. If they move, then most likely Daisy Siete will move with them (and Walang Hanggan, Oyo Boy Sotto's soap opera). If Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon move to ABC-5 (where you have Wow, Mali! and Allan K's Sing Galing, does that mean that Nuts Entertainment and Daddy Di Do Doo will also move to ABC 5?

If this all happens then ABC-5 will rise in the ratings, but at the expense of the Kapuso network, GMA-7.

If Eat...Bulaga moves then this means that they'll have to change studios and relinquish hold of Broadway Centrum and relocate to the ABC Studios in Novaliches City. This will cause problems for many Kurimaw and Chihuahua Boys (most of whom live in the vicinity of Broadway Centrum). Plus business establishments in the vicinity of Brodway will lose its loyal showbiz patronage, like the spa the Sexbomb Girls frequent when they go for massages.

Wonder if the homeless who make Broadway Centrum their home will relocate to Novaliches City. But I'm certain, they won't be allowed to live in the ABC Studios.

But then some people say that GMA-7 is readying a new noontime show using the Bubble Gang tandem of Michael V (who's now with Eat...Bulaga) and Ogie Alcasid.
