The show that dominated the 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 nn time slot for almost 9 years, was finally beat by Showtime. It replaced D!

6. That’s Entertainment

That’s Entertainment was like a workshop for young actors on air. It was one of the most popular shows during its time where many artists came from like Lea Salonga, Billy Crawford, and Judy Ann Santos to name a few. The young actors were grouped into 5 (from Monday to Friday) and would have a production number on Saturdays. Although the show was still popular at the time, That’s Entertainment aired its final episode in March 1996. During that time, Ang TV was already on its fifth year and has dominated the ratings.
