The weekend experience on ABS-CBN just got better.

This weekend will mark the return of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ to the small screen. Now on its fifth season, the biggest and grandest reality talent show in the country got a big boost with the addition of Vice Ganda into the team of judges, which also consists of Freddie Garcia, Angel Locsin and Robin Padilla.

The ‘Golden Buzzer’, introduced in the Asian, British and American ‘Got Talent’ franchises, will also make its debut on ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’. The ‘Golden Buzzer’ will determine the performer who deserved to go to the next level and avoid elimination in the process.

Let’s just hope that with the ‘Golden Buzzer’, ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ will not be a one-sided ‘singers’ show’ as they did in past editions. Trying to balance things out will be a big challenge for this season.

Season 5 of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ will be hosted by Billy Crawford and Luis Manzano, and will air every Saturday after ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’, and Sunday after ‘Rated K’.

Speaking of Luis Manzano, his other weekend show will now be seen twice. Starting this weekend, ‘Celebrity Playtime’ will not only air every Saturday, but also on Sundays as well.

This means that every day on ABS-CBN will have Luis Manzano on the small screen. In addition to ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ and ‘Celebrity Playtime’, Luis also hosts ‘Kapamilya Deal or No Deal’, which airs weekdays.

Sunday episodes of ‘Celebrity Playtime’ will take over the timeslot vacated by ‘Luv U’, which ended last Sunday. Thus, ‘Celebrity Playtime’ will now face two different GMA programs: ‘CelebriTV’ on Saturdays, and ‘Juan Tamad’ on Sundays.

One of ABS-CBN’s top-rated shows, ‘Celebrity Playtime’ now hopes to carry over its success on Saturdays into Sundays. As they usually say, ‘the more, the better’.

    GMA naman will air long movies on GMA Blockbusters while the Kapuso Network prepares its replacement show for Wowowin, Dear Uge with Eugene Domingo.

    • Probably they could do two for the price of one for three hours if no long movie is available. But enough of that, because that’s too obvious of a filler, and because you only care for articles that relate to Sundays.

    • Kahit si Anasco nainis sa kanya. This was his talk to Mr. Sunday on Facebook some weeks ago. I’m reposting this just so you know.

      His lack of entertainment sense is just too much to bear. Perhaps it’s about time to ban him from this blog for good. As far as we’re concerned, Mr. Sunday’s a liability here, since he only cares to comment on articles that relate to Sunday shows.

      Pwede silang magtabi ni Mr. Scared-It-All JC Domondon.

    Ralph, I’m sorry for everything I have did to make you mad. I appreciate your blog as much as I do. And those obnoxiously long and ‘scared’ comments that I posted are just my ways to express what I thought about TV and the media itself. If you’re going to ban me on this site and don’t want to talk to me again, I’m willing to accept it. But hope you accept my apology.

    • If I were you, I’d rather not talk about this out of respect to others who were seriously giving their thoughts on the articles. Best way to apologize is to just keep quiet. The others who made unrelated, biased and out of context comments simply stopped commenting, so it’s best that you do the same.

      • Here’s a little advice to you. We usually call James Ty Mr. Sunday because of his incessant posts of Sunday programming. And yet, he doesn’t complain about it in his comments. If you were really insulted, better ignore it. You’re making this a little too personal, which is not allowed here.
