- Julie Anne San Jose is ignoring the pressure about All-Out Sunday’s ratings
- All-Out Sundays is expected to match ratings of Sunday PinaSaya and beat ASAP Natin ‘To
- Julie Anne said that she and the show staff are open to criticisms and suggestions
Julie Anne San Jose chose to ignore the pressure on how All-Out Sundays is doing in the battle of ratings. Replacing Sunday PinaSaya, the new weekend show is expected to match its predecessor and keep up a good fight with rival ASAP Natin ‘To in terms of ratings.
According to data from AGB Nielsen,Sunday PinaSaya dominated in ratings against ASAP Natin ‘To, during its four-year run.
After the live telecast of All-Out Sundays‘ pilot episode last January 5, at GMA Network Center, Julie Anne gave her thoughts about the matter.
Julie Anne responded with a laugh, “For me, personally, I don’t feel any pressure right now! Hahaha!
“Kidding aside, instead of focusing doon sa pressure, I just feel like having fun kasi when you put too much pressure on something, mas hindi nagiging maganda yung kinakalabasan.”
Julie Anne explained that there is always pressure in a competition, but she opted not to focus on it.
“Kumbaga, di naman sa ayaw kong ma-feel yung pressure. Of course, merong pressure, but I don’t feel the need to focus on that: feeling that pressure.
“Kasi at the end of the day, iisa lang naman ang goal naming lahat, makapag-entertain, mapasaya mga tao every Sunday.
“Parang instead of thinking about it too much, overthinking mga ratings, blah blah blah… may competition naman talaga sa industry, but at the end of the day, kung ano yung makakapagpasaya sa audience talaga.
“Ako kasi, madali ako mahawa sa energy ng mga tao, like once na alam ko na masaya ang mga tao doon sa show, mas gaganahan kami to perform better.
“And then, in case naman hindi sila ganahan, di nila nagustuhan ang show, marami pa namang paraan para bumawi, mas mapaganda pa yung show.
“Lahat naman kami, hindi lang naman kami parang we have to think about the ratings or whatever. We focus on the quality of the show, the content,” Julie Anne stated.
Some viewers noted that All-Out Sundays is similar to Sunday PinaSaya because of its comedy-musical skits. While others also likened it to Kapamilya show, ASAP Natin ‘To, because of its musical production numbers. Julie Anne said that making comparisons is a usual thing
“Hindi naman po talaga maiiwasan magkaroon ng comparison or magkaroon ng sasabihin ang ibang tao, hindi po talaga natin maiiwasan yun.
“Lahat po tayo, entitled sa mga opinions natin, di ba? It’s just how we say it to the person or the people na nasa show mismo o nandon sa project na yun mismo.”
Julie Anne, along with the show’s cast and staff members, are willing to hear criticisms and suggestions.
“Kami naman, since we’re just starting, open naman kami sa suggestions. Criticisms, open din kami diyan.
“We’re trying our very very best to be open-minded about everything kasi yun nga po, since start pa lang ng show, parang madami pa rin kaming pwedeng gawin, marami pang pwedeng mai-offer sa show.
“Hindi naman siya like just because gusto namin ito, hindi namin papakinggan ito.
“We’re very open and people can make their suggestions naman externally. Internally, may mga brainstormers naman and yun nga, yung production mismo, sila nag-iinsist, ‘Ano gusto niyong gawin, just tell us, let us know kung ano mga gusto niyo gawin para sa show.’
“And I think it’s a healthy relationship within all of us kasi parang hindi na rin bago yung tingin namin sa isa’t isa dahil magkakakilala naman kami.”
The pilot episode of All-Out Sundays was declared a winner according to the data of AGB Nielsen. It gathered 6.1% while ASAP Natin ‘To only scored 5.7%.
Meanwhile in Kantar Media, All-Out Sundays only recorded 9.7% and ASAP Natin ‘To won with 11.7%.
In its almost 25 years on TV, ASAP has outlasted several GMA musical variety shows that were pitted against it.
In 1997, ASAP outlived GMA’s longest-running Sunday variety show at that time, GMA Supershow. It was then replaced by SOP (Sobrang Ok Pare). SOP was ASAP’s worthy competitor for some time since it was able to beat the latter in terms of TV ratings at times. But the show wasn’t able to match ASAP’s endurance since it ended after 13 years on air.
After SOP, GMA gambled with Party Pilipinas which didn’t last long as it bid farewell after just three years.
Sunday All Stars came next but it was still not successful in toppling ASAP. Sunday All Stars ended its run after two years.
Sunday Pinasaya was the 5th GMA Sunday afternoon variety show that was silenced by ABS-CBN’s ASAP.
