The new year entails new shows for TV5. Three shows recently bade farewells.
Chika BESH (Basta Everyday Super Happy) had its final episode on Friday, January 8. Luchi Cruz-Valdes‘s Usapang Real Life also took its final bow on Saturday, January 9 (to be replaced by a new show, Wanted: Ang Serye, developed by Cignal Entertainment). Lastly, the Sunday afternoon drama series–I Got You also ended on Sunday, January 10, with 13 episodes.
Chika BESH first aired on August 17, 2020, presented by three different women in three different generations–ka-chika hosts Pauleen Luna-Sotto, Ria Atayde, and Pokwang. The morning talk-magazine show was known for entertaining its audiences with good vibes and insights on discussions, weekdays every 7:30 a.m.
According to Pauleen, the reason for its farewell was the non-renewal of the program.
It was immediately replaced by new shows Ben 10 (7:30-8:00 a.m.) and Courage: The Cowardly Dog (8:00-8:30 a.m.) on the succeeding weekdays on January 11 and 12.
Usapang Real Life (URL) had its last episode on January 9, Saturday evening. The program first aired on August 15, 2020, as part of the Network’s weekend lineup. It also made an international debut on November 7, 2020, on Kapatid TV5 with delayed telecasts.
The primetime block was replaced by her co-journalist, Raffy Tulfo‘s newest program.
I Got You, which was launched on October 18, 2020, also bade goodbye on January 10, with 13 episodes with stars Beauty Gonzales, Jane Oineza, and RK Bagatsing.
Meanwhile, Christmaserye’s Paano ang Pasko? extended the series to the second book as Paano ang Pangako?
New shows like Born To Be A Star by Viva, Daddy Show hosted by Ryan Agoncillo, Dear God series with Piolo Pascual, and a sitcom, John En Ellen are in the works for its audiences to watch out for.
