In one of their It’s Showtime segments, Vice Ganda gave hints of ABS-CBN’s possible return to free TV.
He initially started the show in good spirits with the exciting news that he wanted to share.
“Nako! Nako! Abang abang lang kayo jan,” said Vice.
Vice then continued that he doesn’t want to spill the beans yet because he will get reprimanded.
“Ayaw ko na lang magsalita baka mapagalitan ako,” Vice continued.
He then highlighted his tweet from the day before.
“Di ba sabi ko sa inyo madlang people, better days are coming,” Vice highlighted
Better days are coming. Yes better days!!!!!

Then later on in the segment, he said that they would be seeing the madlang people again.
“Abang abang and Kitakits! I’m sure na eexcite kayo kung anong sinasabi kong kitakits, talagang ako finefeed niyo para ako mapagalitan,” said Vice.
And then in one of their later segments, Vice gave a more concrete hint about what made him excited.
“Two-two, eh kung one plus one equals two, edi one and one equals eleven,” said Vice.
