TV5 Pushes Through With Misterless Misis, Plus Fate of Vacated KISPinoy Slot

TV5’s 9:00 p.m. slot on weekends will have a different look this week.

On Saturdays, it’s back to good ol’ Tagalized foreign films through ‘Movie Max 5’. As mentioned in a prior article, ‘KISPinoy’ was abruptly cancelled due to financial losses on the part of blocktimer YU&IQ International.

In the past, TV5’s 9:00 p.m. Saturday slot was filled by either a game show, a sitcom, a reality show, or reruns of former programs. Now with no other options, they decided to go with ‘Movie Max 5’, though it could have been better if they continue to air more recent Filipino films like they did more recently on Sunday nights.

As a result, ‘History with Lourd’, formerly of the defunct KBO block, will move to 10:30 p.m., right before ‘Kaya’. The lone survivor of the KBO block currently airs new episodes since July of this year.

Here’s how TV5’s Saturday primetime schedule will now look like:

7:00 p.m. – LolaBasyang.com

8:00 p.m. – #ParangNormal Activity

9:00 p.m. – Movie Max 5

10:30 p.m. – History with Lourd

11:00 p.m. – Kaya

Then on Sundays, a new sitcom will make its way into the Kapatid network. Titled ‘Misterless Misis’, the series will feature six actresses who will try to cope up with the problems of being single, widowed and divorced women.

‘Misterless Misis’ stars Andi Gomez, Lorna Tolentino, Mitch Valdes, Ritz Azul, Gelli de Belen and Ruffa Gutierrez. The sitcom will be directed by Mark Meily.

In total, two sitcoms will air on TV5 every Sunday night. In addition to the upcoming ‘Misterless Misis’, TV5 also airs ‘No Harm No Foul’, a sitcom starring Ogie Alcasid and a host of basketball stars.

Here’s how TV5’s Sunday primetime schedule will now look like:

6:00 p.m. – Nike Rise

7:00 p.m. – No Harm No Foul

8:00 p.m. – Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

9:00 p.m. – Misterless Misis

10:00 p.m. – Sports 360

This should be an interesting weekend for TV5 and its loyal and happy viewers. Good luck.

Three TV5 Shows Off the Air This Weekend

The Clear Dream Match will highlight TV5’s weekend slate of programs this week.

Three TV5 shows will not be seen this weekend for various reasons.

The Clear Dream Match, pitting the teams led by James and Phil Younghusband, will be aired live on TV5 tonight at 8:00 p.m. The all-star football exhibition match will also feature two English football legends: Manchester United’s Paul Scholes and Andy Cole. The match will be held at the University of Makati Stadium.

Due to the Clear Dream Match, ‘One of the Boys’ and ‘Celebrity Dance Battle’ will be preempted for this week. New episodes for both shows will resume next week.

Meanwhile, TV5 also reported that the second episode of ‘JasMine’ will not air tomorrow. According to the report, the taping for that particular episode last Friday was halted after one of the production staff members allegedly had an unpleasant experience with a stalker. Director Mark Meily then ordered its staff to pack up, after which TV5 executives held an emergency meeting. A statement regarding its suspension has yet to be released.

The suspension of ‘JasMine’ was surprising, considering the series starring Jasmine Curtis-Smith had an auspicious debut. Now viewers must hope that its suspension will not affect the momentum that ‘JasMine’ generated from the previous week.

And for viewers of News5 programs, it was decided that TV5 will only air one newscast during weekends. This means ‘Aksyon Weekend’ will be the lone news program on Saturdays, while ‘Pilipinas News Weekend’ will be the lone news program on Sundays.

It should be an exciting and promising weekend for the Kapatids at TV5, as the Younghusbands attempt to break the tie in tonight’s Clear Dream Match.
