No Replacement for Kris TV, For Now

Looks like ‘Kris TV’ is here to stay anew.

Even though Kris Aquino made it clear that last Wednesday’s episode of ‘Kris TV’ was to be their last (see video above), on Monday, March 28, ABS-CBN decided to continue airing the talk show as a series of ‘best of’ specials. ‘The Best of Kris TV’, as seen in the program plugs, airs on the very timeslot that ‘Kris TV’ once occupied, from 7:30-9:00 a.m. on weekdays.

The reason behind this decision is unclear, though it may be attributed to a lack of a suitable replacement. There were rumors that a talk show hosted by Karla Estrada would replace ‘Kris TV’, but the Kapamilya actress quickly shot it down.

With nearly five years and over 1,000 episodes to boot, ‘Kris TV’ ranks as one of the longest-running morning talk shows on Philippine television. While the show may not have been a ratings darling, its loyal following and Kris Aquino’s dedication to her craft helped ‘Kris TV’ stay on the air for as long as Kris’ body and mind allowed it to.

Still, with the show having closed shop, what’s next for ABS-CBN as far as its vacated timeslot is concerned? After all, they don’t want an already concluded show like ‘Kris TV’ to remain on the air, so they need to make a decision about it as soon as possible.

Hopefully the wait won’t be long. As for Kris Aquino, let’s just hope that she returns to prominence with her body and mind as strong as ever.
