New Talk Shows to Shine on ABS-CBN, GMA

Rival networks ABS-CBN and GMA are set to premiere new morning talk shows in the summer.

On the Kapamilya camp, the trio of Karla Estrada, Melai Cantiveros and Jolina Magdangal are busy preparing for a still-untitled talk show. A teaser for this program was aired recently, with its timeslot and premiere date yet to be determined.

This talk show is expected to replace ‘Kris TV’, whose run ended during the Holy Week but have continued to air reruns due to a lack of an immediate replacement. Kris Aquino herself admitted that she was saddened by the continuous replays of ‘Kris TV’ even though it had already been concluded.

Initially, a new talk show solely hosted by Karla Estrada was rumored to take over ‘Kris TV”s timeslot, but the Kapamilya actress denied the rumors. Just last week, however, she announced that she will indeed host the show alongside Melai and Jolina.

Over on the Kapuso side, Marian Rivera is also busy preparing for a new talk show of her own. Titled ‘Yan ang Morning!’, a teaser for it was aired recently, as part of GMA’s summer programs plug.

‘Yan ang Morning!’ will be GMA’s first morning talk show since ‘Basta Every Day Happy’ two years ago. Its timeslot is also yet to be determined, though it may be likely that GMA will air the program during the mid to late mornings, as it was the case with ‘Basta Every Day Happy’.

For Marian Rivera, it will be her third upcoming or ongoing project since returning from maternity leave. Her two other programs are the soon-to-air ‘Encantadia’ requel and ‘Sunday PinaSaya’.

Whether or not the two talk shows will face each other in the same timeslot or not remains to be seen. Still, it will be interesting to see how will they fare in a block that does not usually make an impact in the ratings.

    On ABS: They supposed to have a title called “Morning Girls” (incidentally, it is one of the programs of Kris and Korina back in the day) but hindi nila gagamitin…

    On GMA: Two options for the timeslot is after Unang Hirit or a pre-programming of PITP and Eat Bulaga

    • With due respect to Kris and Korina, it’s good they didn’t use the Morning Girls name. We’ll just have to wait for a new name to pop out.

      As for GMA, it could be better if they place Marian’s morning show after UH, possibly around 7:00 a.m. The late morning slot is considered a death sentence for Kapuso morning talk shows. Just ask Chef Boy Logro.

  2. The Kris TV magic still worked on Dos kahit pinapaboran sa ratings ang pa rin Astig Authority ng GMA.

    I wish the new talk show will last 30 to 60 minutes para may pambatang programa, para sumaya ng kaunti si Marco Jonathan Rossi, pero malabo na. Especially the coming NBA Playoffs.

    I’m sorry to say this but ang sobrang bilis ang pace ng Dos towards digitalization kahit usad pagong sa isip ng mga viewers.

    For GMA, no comment o kaya’y “Good luck na lang.”

    • Well, it’s up to both networks to try to rekindle interest in the morning slot. Then again, there’s so much complications in that slot so let’s just wait and see what happens next.

  3. I would still wonder if ABS is willing to pre-empt the new morning show for NBA Eastern Conference Finals and NBA Finals (maraming fans na ang nagrereklamo sa delay, salamat sa Kris TV) now that Kris Aquino and her demands are no longer with ABS-CBN.

    Update via PEP: The Karla-Jolina-Melai talk show will be tentively titled as “Magandang Buhay” (one of the remarkable lines from the teleserye Dream Dad)
