Gandang Gabi Vice has officially signed off as it aired its final episode last Sunday, March 8.
But, did the now-defunct talk show win over its rival Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho in the battle of ratings?
GGV used to be pitted against The Boobay And Tekla Show but due to decline in audience share, the former changed to an earlier timeslot, this time against KMJS.
However, GGV ended wit the same fate.
Based on the viewership rating recorded by Kantar Media, the final episode of GGV garnered a TV rating of 11.3% while its rival program KMJS accumulated a rating of 26%.
With the numbers given, it shows that KMJS has again won the interests of many TV viewers.
Aside from GGV, the Kapuso TV news magazine show is also pitted against The Voice Teens Season 2 which registered a rating of 24.1%.
In the end, the Kapuso program still ruled its timeslot.
Hosted by Vice Ganda, Gandang Gabi Vice ended its nine-year run by featuring TV5 host and broadcast journalist Raffy Tulfo, whom he had known long before he rose to prominence.
During the show, Vice took the opportunity to thank Raffy and his family for supporting the former’s career even when he wasn’t famous yet.
He said, “Alam niyo po matagal na po kaming magkakilala. Bagito pa lang ako sa comedy bar ay sinusuportahan na ako ni Mr. Raffy Tulfo at ng pamilya niya noon pa. Hindi lang ako, kaming mga magkakaibigan sa comedy bar, kami nila Kiray, sila MC at Lassy, kaya matagal na kaming magkakilala. Naka-experience ako ng kabutihang-loob mo at ng pamilya ninyo. Ngayon po ay gusto kong magpasalamat muli sa inyo,” in which the TV5 host replied with, “Anytime.”
Towards the end of Raffy’s interview, he revealed that some people reported to him about Vice Ganda and his talk show and ordered to play the video containing the complaints against the It’s Showtime host.
These complainants had their faces covered while talking about their silly experiences with the Kapamilya show.
A woman shared, “Kasi po nung nag-guest ako sa GGV, pinakanta ako ng ‘Pangarap Ko ang Ibigin Ka’ ni Regine Velasquez habang nakadapa, habang nakaupo, saka habang naka-mouthguard.”
The mysterious complainant turned out to be Asia’s Phoenix Morissette Amon who had visited GGV several times.
With a laugh, she said: “Dahil sa challenge na ito, nag-start iyon ng mga challenges dito sa Pilipinas. I’m very, very grateful for the trust and opportunity. Ate Vice, maraming salamat. Love you! Thank you po.”
Another complainant also shared her experience and accused the comic host of disparaging her. The woman said: “Sinisiraan niya po ako, sinasabi niya sa lahat na lasing ako pag nagsasalita.”
The woman turned out to be Moira dela Torre, who also thanked the TV host-comedienne.
Another mystery complainant succumbed to Raffy and recalled her ridiculous moment when she guested in GGV.
She recalled: “Magsusumbong lang ako, kasi lagi akong nabubudol ng GGV. Lagi nila akong pinapapunta diyan kapag hirap na hirap na ako sa pinagdadaanan ko. Ang gingagawa po niyan, lalo na si Vice, pinagtatawanan lang kung anong nangyayari sa buhay ko kahit talagang hirap na hirap na ako.
“Tapos pinapaiyak niya ako para tumaas ang ratings ng show nila. Niloloko po nila ako, pinagti-trip-an nila ako. Pinagti-trip-an nila ang emosyon ko. Tapos sila lang naman ang nakikinabang talaga!”
It turned out that this complainant was Angelica Panganiban.
“Gustong-gusto ko talaga magpasalamat kasi naging venue ang GGV para kung ano man ang pinagdadaanan ko noon sa buhay, masaya man o malungkot, masakit, sila ang naging platform para pagtawanan ko o gumaan ang nararamdaman kong hirap noon.
“Siyempre, nadadaan namin ni Ate Vice sa kulitan na nauuwi sa iyakan minsan.
“Marami rin naman akong natututunan talaga kahit sa sarili ko. Hindi ko naiisip na aabot ako dun sa point na may mga tao akong mai-inspire dahil sa mga trahedyang nangyayari sa buhay ko.
“Maraming, maraming salamat sa GGV,” she went on.
Vice Ganda promised that GGV will comeback.
In the meantime, GGV will be replaced by the newest entertainment show of ABS-CBN, Everybody, Sing! which will premiere on March 15.
Everybody, Sing! is described as the “first community singing game show” which will be hosted by comedian Vice Ganda.
Meanwhile, Gandang Gabi Vice‘s rival program Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho filled the Sunday Night with fright and might as it featured Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and paranormal investigator Ed Caluag for the segment called “Maynila After Dark.”
In the segment Ed, Mayor Isko, and Jessica explored together some of the landmarks of Manila.
Their first stop was the famous dungeon of Fort Santiago, a historical place where our country’s national hero Jose Rizal was exiled before his execution in 1896.
Ed, a paranormal investigator admitted that he felt the disturbed spirits living in the dungeon.
Aside from the fort, the three personalities also visited the restored Jones Bridge.
This time, Ed revealed that he saw a white lady in the place and if her clothes will be the basis of judgment, the lady seemed to have lived in the ’70s or ’80s.
The last place they visited was the current office of Mayor Isko, the Manila City Hall.
The Mayor himself said that some of his staff members have already had scary experiences inside the building.
Ed then told Isko and Jessica that he saw the spirits of three soldiers inside the building. According to Ed, he also felt the spirit of a crying lady standing by the window of Manila City Hall’s clock tower.
