TV5’s New Shows Premiere This Quarter of 2015

The blanks have been filled once again on TV5.

Two brand new shows premiered on the Kapatid network today. ‘Happy Wife, Happy Life’, hosted by RR Enriquez, LJ Moreno-Alapag, Danica Sotto-Pingris and Jeck Maierhofer, and ‘Solved na Solved’, hosted by Arnell Ignacio, Gelli de Belen and TV5 legal expert Atty. Mel Sta. Maria, debuted following the conclusion of the network’s coverage of Pope Francis in Manila earlier this morning.

Tomorrow will see two other shows make their way into the TV5 lineup. The local version of the Australian kids’ show ‘Hi-5’ premieres at 8:30 a.m., while ‘Healing Galing’, a spinoff of the Radyo5 program hosted by Dr. Edinell Calvario, will air at 10:00 a.m. with Hayden Kho as co-host.

The Padilla brothers (Robin, Rommel and BB Gandanghari) will join forces on the sitcom ‘2 1/2 Daddies’, which will air starting this Saturday at 8:00 p.m.. Another sitcom, this time starring Derek Ramsay and Empoy Marquez, will be titled ‘Mac and Chiz’ and will air starting this Sunday at 8:00 p.m.

A pair of talent shows will also spice up TV5’s weekend programming. ‘Move It’, a dance show hosted by Jasmine Curtis-Smith and Tom Taus, premieres this Sunday at 7:00 p.m., while ‘Rising Stars’, a singing competition show hosted by Ogie Alcasid and Venus Raj, will be aired next month.

A new season of ‘Wattpad Presents’ will also see the light of day, as new love stories featuring television’s rising young talents will be featured starting tonight at 9:00 p.m. And for those in need of love advice, call Papa Jack and his new show ‘Call Me Papa Jack’, which airs starting this Saturday at 10:00 p.m.

Still to come for the Kapatid network are:

  • ‘E5’, a showbiz, lifestyle and fashion show hosted by KC Montero, Grace Lee, Tim Yap, IC Mendoza and Divine Lee
  • ‘Extreme Challenge: Kaya Mo Ba ‘To’, an adventure reality show hosted by Derek Ramsay and features select teams of ‘The Amazing Race Philippines 2’
  • ‘No Harm No Foul’, a sitcom starring Ogie Alcasid, Ritz Azul and several PBA players
  • ‘Kontrabando’, a news satire show hosted by Ramon Bautista, Lourd de Veyra, Jun Sabayton and RA Rivera
  • ‘Last School Standing’, a game show featuring the top high schools in the country

This is definitely a good start for TV5 in 2015. That said, expect the network to plug in more holes as the weeks go on, as they look to stabilize their programming lineup for this year.

      Jason, what is that? Teen Wolf the 1985 movie starring Michael J. Fox? Will Aksyon Tonite change its timeslot to compete with Bandila and Saksi?

      How about TV5’s subpar (according to many) coverage of Pope Francis in the Philippines, aside from taking advantage of the timeslots normally allotted to cartoons and movies? Did TV5’s coverage take commercial breaks while the Pope was outside (read: not in the Philippines’ Apostolic Nunciature), like ABS-CBN channel 2?

      New TV5 Saturday Primetime Schedule:
      7pm – ???
      8pm – 2 1/2 Daddies
      9pm – ??? (rerun?)
      10pm – Call Me Papa Jack

      New TV5 Sunday Primetime Schedule:
      7pm – Move It
      8pm – Mac and Chiz
      9pm – ??? (rerun, marathon, or movie?)

      The four new TV5 morning shows mean less cartoons on weekdays, although TV5 is thinking about airing new anime (or rather East Asian animation) and asking for fan feedback on social media. Movies on afternoons will not die on that network though.

      The local dub of ‘Game of Thrones’ named ‘Laro ng Trono’ will come soon to TV5. (?)

      • Wala pang announcement regarding Game of Thrones local version. Remember the ill-fated Pretty Little Liars?

        We’ll have to wait and see what will be TV5’s next move, both in the programming lineup and the shows that will come next.

        As for their coverage of the Papal visit, sorry, pero naka-Channel 2 lang ako. We have to ask those who watched TV5’s coverage.

    Speaking of the arrival of these fresh programs from the network along Greenfield District, I noticed this early Tuesday morning na parang may pagbabago na rin sa early morning timeslot nila. I used to watch Aksyon sa Umaga every 06:30AM or 06:45AM kasi, right after I wake up. But today, when I turned on the TV at 06:30AM, hindi ko na naabutan ang Aksyon sa Umaga. Disney block na lang ang naabutan ko. My clock isn’t late naman.

      • Nameless says:

        That’s what I like about tv5. No pressure to compete. “Sports” lang talaga sila with other networks, tulad ng kanilang sports-minded na Chairman. But as they roll out their new programs, sana ganun na rin ang gawin nila sa AKSYONtv, para hindi maging katulad ng “News” TV. And as PBA’s 1st conference is about to end, sana ibalik nila ulit sa orig. timeslots ‘yung ilang news programs nila.

      • Won’t be long, though. Malapit na rin yung Commissioner’s Cup so it’s very likely that the timeslots during PBA games will stay the same once the import-laced tournament begins.

  2. James Ty III says:

    The Commissioner’s Cup opens on January 27, Tuesday next week. As for the Sunday 9 pm time slot, there will still be Wow Mali.

  3. James Ty III says:

    Here is the new Sunday sked of TV5 starting Jan. 25:

    2 pm SPORTS 360 (Starting Feb. 1)
    3 pm PBA COMMISSIONER’S CUP (Starting Feb. 1)
    7 pm MOVE IT
    8 pm MAC AND CHIZ

  4. James Ty III says:

    And it won’t be long before these shows I mentioned eventually move into mainstream free TV. This is what TV5 needs to establish a strong sports presence versus ABS-CBN Sports+Action — where Mr. Nathanielsz used to do some sports coverages before.

      • Nameless says:

        Fushigi Yuugi was aired first on tv5, during the management of Cojuangco & Media Prima (a Malaysian investee of the network before Sir MVP came). But I saw a teaser this morning on tv5 that this anime will be back. Hindi ko lang napansin kung ano ang timeslot niya. About that “TV5 Animega” term, I doubt that Mr. Lorenzana will use this for a cartoon block, as they want to be different ffrom how Cojuangco handled the network.

        Meanwhile, napansin ko lang na parang nawala na rin ang Cartoon Network block ng Kapatid network, after 4 years and 3 months. It seems that the contract is ended na for that.

      • Well, TV5 have to move on. Mukhang nakinig na sila sa mga hardcore anime fans. They realized that Western animation on a big, alternative network will do them no good.

    • And even sa Aksyon TV dapat mag simulcast pa ng mga shows mula sa Radyo5 kasya sa mga paulit-ulit ng mga News5 produced shows, kaya pagdating ng tanghali pagkatapos ng Metro Sabado tuwing sabado at Healing Galing tuwing Linggo ay dun nag sisismula na ipalabas ang mga replay shows imbes ng magpasimulcast mula sa Radyo5. I hope na i-simulcast na sa AksyonTV ang Oplan Asenso, Iba ‘Yung Pinoy, Showbiz FM, Aksyon Sports at lalo na ang nga music shows at kahit bawas-bawasan man lang ang mga paulit-ulit na mga News5 Produced shows kasi nakaka boring talaga pagdating ng tanghali hanggang ng talaga nothing new lalo pag walang PBA Games na nakaschedule.

      • You said that too many times now. Kung ako sa ‘yo, puntahan mo na lang yung Reliance office ng TV5 and try to talk to any of the executives there, lalo na si Mrs. Luchi at si Sir Noel Lorenzana, kung may guts ka.

    • Might as well see an NCAA without TV coverage for the first time since the early 2000s. Even the other MM leagues plus those in the Visayas are thriving without TV coverage, baka mas better na lang for them to have none.

      • James Ty III says:

        That’s the problem when a college league has so many teams and many students aren’t interested.

      • Yeah. NCAA can just thrive without TV coverage. Period. Just ask CESAFI in the Visayas. They’re not a mainstream collegiate league, but they are thriving.

      • Nameless says:

        Aray. It’s so hard for me to hear that thing that this oldest-but-humble collegiate league will not be on TV soon. Kung hindi pa siguro nakipag-deal ang 9TV sa CNN, eh di sana may chance ang NCAA to move to that station. I remember, when Cabangon-Chua created that 9TV, his group said in some reports that they will be focusing on business and sports programming.

        Kung may natitira pang pera ang GMA sa kanilang wallet, they can go either into sports division-making or collaborate with Solar Sports, by junking a News channel in favor of a sports-centric TV station.

        ‘Yung CeSAFI ng Cebu (UAAP/NCAA prov. counterpart), pinapalabas siya dati sa kanilang CCTN-47, but now ay sa livestream na lang daw ine-ere ang games.

      • It may hurt, pero like I said, NCAA can thrive without TV coverage. They have too many schools now, and in the event na magbebenta sila uli ng TV rights, chances are it may complicate matters even more.

  5. James Ty III says:

    Sports5 nga aired only the finals of the NCAA volleyball. Chances are, nobody will be interested to watch the NCAA Cheerleading Competition in March.

  6. Nameless says:

    Hmmm. Medyo hindi na bago ang pagbabalik-tv5 ni Ramon, for me. He had his own show there before, named “The WEAKend News” with Teddy Corpuz. It was aired also during Cojuangco-Media Prima era. Two years later, the show’s format was adopted by News TV for May Tamang Balita, at siya rin ang host.

    Pero in all fairness, tv5 tries to reunite some NU107 (Brewrats/Strangebrew) personalities in 1 show. Rivera, Sabayton, de Veyra & Bautista. Kung buhay pa sana si Tado, oh. And all of them yata are came from UP.

    • Yung fake news format, madalang lang mangyari. Before Ramon’s forays to that genre, Studio 23 aired Wazzup Wazzup with Toni Gonzaga and Vhong Navarro. Fake news had mixed success though, hence its rarity in Philippine TV.

  7. James Ty III says:

    Ralph, do you think Move It and Mac and Chiz will do well in the ratings when they premiere tomorrow? They will be up against tough competition.

      • James Ty III says:

        My observation is that Move It is like The Voice Ph, only it concerns street dance teams. Move It and The Voice will not compete against each other so this gives viewers a chance to compared both these shows. But The Voice has the edge because it’s an international franchise.

      • And Move It is another program that is capitalizing on the growing popularity of streetdance, so this is definitely another way to attract streetdance aficionados everywhere.

        Going back to last night, I’m surprised that TV5 still continued its rebroadcast of ‘Everyday Hapi’ after 2 1/2 Daddies. I was expecting to have the News5 documentary series ‘Kaya’ on that timeslot while Call Me Papa Jack would be an hour-long program. But the plan was altered to say the least.

  8. James Ty III says:

    UAAP streetdance is on Feb. 8 at MOA Arena. Another sign that streetdance is being taken seriously as a collegiate sport.

  9. James Ty III says:

    By the way, Who Wants to be A Millionaire Philippines and Quiet Please, both shows are on hiatus while TV5 is trying to renew its contract with the foreign company that owns their international rights.

  10. It’s too bad na ang NCAA Volleyball Finals at Football Finals ay pinalabas lang AksyonTV kasi sa TV5 panay tagalog dubbed movies ang pinapalabas nila imbes ng sports coverage NCAA, dapat they should get rid of lots of tagalog dubbed movies at i-air ang mga laro ng NCAA at di sa AksyonTV lang mapapanood kasi sayang naman at nakakabore talaga.

    • NCAA is not as popular as the UAAP, period, that is why TV5 backed off. And I won’t be surprised if the NCAA decides to not pursue an extension to their TV contract with TV5 next season. They’ll do fine without TV coverage.

  11. James Ty III says:

    Quiet Please was actually a joint project of TV5 and Fremantle Media, which also produces all other international versions of Who Wants to be a Millionaire. But with Quiet Please up against Rated K, The Voice and KMJS, I doubt if Fremantle will renew its tie-up with TV5 for another season of the show since Richard Gomez will be busy taping his new teleserye for ABS-CBN unless TV5 finds a new host for QP.

  12. James Ty III says:

    Papa Jack’s TV5 show will be aired on sunday nights at 10:30 pm beginning tonight right after Wow Mali with Joey de Leon, replacing the weekend marathon of Wattpad Presents.

    Derek Ramsay’s Extreme Series replays will come in at 11:30 pm.

    • That’s because of Rising Stars, the new talent search show which premiered yesterday on the former timeslot of CMPJ. I don’t understand why they still aired reruns of Everyday Hapi instead of placing Rising Stars on that slot instead. It doesn’t make sense.

  13. James Ty III says:

    Rising Stars was originally slated to air also on Sundays but there is already the PBA games and Move It, another reality show.

    • Kaya Saturdays kasi full na yung primetime sked nila every Sunday. The problem for TV5 though on the entry of that show was the decision-making regarding the timeslots. Everyday Hapi was supposed to be a temporary fill-in, kaso TV5 kept the replay of the show even though Rising Stars was ready to step in. The end result was Papa Jack moving to Sundays and the Wattpad marathon being cancelled, which definitely didn’t make sense.

  14. James Ty III says:

    Ralph, Call Me Papa Jack has been axed by TV5 and Wattpad Presents resumed its weekend marathon last night.

    Also, Who Wants to be a Millionaire will be back on TV5 on Sunday nights beginning May 3 at 8 pm replacing Move It whose Grand Finals was also last night.
