Vice Ganda has decided to mock those who criticize “It’s Showtime” for wanting to go overtime on TV5.
As part of the block time deal with Manuel Pangilinan’s network, the noontime show is only aired from 12:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m, but A2Z Channel and others allow it to conclude.
During its debut on TV5, the ABS-CBN program was replaced by another on TV5. This prompted viewers to call on the network to extend It’s Showtime duration on the channel while others argued that it’d be unfair to other shows.
In his vlog dated July 24, host Vice Ganda made banter out of the issue. He first gave his followers a peek inside the newly renovated It’s Showtime studio.
He showed the LED screen in the DJ booth before jokingly blasting his co-hosts.
“Puwedeng tanggalin yung DJ Booth, puwedeng tanggalin yung LED walls diyan, pero ito, hindi pwedeng tanggalin.
“Dahil diyan lumalabas kung overtime na ang Showtime! Because Showtime is overtime, gano’n!” he said.
He joked that his co-hosts have no discipline.
“So, nakikita niyo naman sa loob ng ilang taon, ako ho talaga yung dahilan para ma-control ko yung pag-o-overtime nila dahil walang kadisi-disiplina yung mga kasamahan ko!
“Walang ginawa kung hindi magngangawa nang magngangawa nang magngangawa, wala nang katorya-torya yung sinasabi nila.
“Nag-o-overtime talaga, nakakahiya sa susunod na programa. No-no talaga sa akin iyan, that’s very unprofessional.” Vice Ganda added.
The comedian then lets off a smile, indicating that it is usually because of him that the program goes overtime.
It’s Showtime debut on TV5 was on July 16. Tropang LOL precedes the show. A variety of shows that many believe should be canceled due to their boring segments.
Tropang LOL host Bayani Agbayani earlier took a shot at It’s Showtime’s desire to get an extended air time on TV5 but Vice Ganda had none of it.

“Kaya dapat hindi lahat nakikisali ha. May kilala tayo nakikisali. Mga nagpaparinig, ba’t ka nagpaparinig, hindi ka naman kasali?,” Vice jokingly said in a previous episode.
“Kasi may napanuod kami, nagpaparinig. Kaya nag-usap kami, hanga tayo rito. Nagpaparinig siya, hindi naman siya kasama sa isyu,” Vice added.
