“Yes, we listen. abangan this June!” he wrote.
It’s Showtime, received criticisms from Netizens, who claimed that the show is turning more of a ‘talk show’ than a variety show.
They said that the hosts and staff of the show are becoming lazy as they do not have new segments to boost the viewers.
Currently, It’s Showtime has four segments: Name It To Win It, Tawag ng Tanghalan (TNT), Hide and Sing, and Versus.
Netizens mentioned that the hosts are prolonging the interview with the TNT contestants–it made the show boring.
I’m a Solid Showtimer. Last studio visit ko, guest list ni Angel nung 2014 (thru Ate Claire) nung nag sub muna siya kay Anne. I love the show sobra kaso pansin ko nga rin na medyo matamlay ngayon sa pag-iisip ng bagong segments and pag prolong ng chikahan sa TNT.

I get it. Kailangan magtipid pero kaya ring makapag-isip ng exciting new segments na may variety kahit limited budget. Content is KING. Kaya nila yan. Diyan sumikat ang IST. Sana wag masamain ng staff at makinig sila sa feedback. I have suggestions in mind. Tweet ko on Sat.

Some Netizens said they would try to watch other noontime shows from the rival networks like GMA’s Eat Bulaga! and TV5’s Lunch Out Loud.
Maganda ang LOL ng TV5. Wala kami A2Z. Ayaw namin ng EB, so sa LOL kami haha
Ang natatawa ako na segment is the HOPE iyong dating game nila using real life ex-couples hahaha

Meanwhile, some Netizens requested for It’s Showtime to bring back their old segments like Miss Q&A, Kalokalike, and I Am PoGay.
Others asked for a new set in the show and for Anne Curtis to return as host.
Pwede naman kayong mag ka virtual audience daily Mon-Fri kahit 50 na audience. Kapag Sabado 100 audience. Ibalik ang KalookAlike at Iam PoGay kung Hindi pwede ang Ms.Q&A sa A2Z. Bawasan na parang awa niyo na Ang kaka talk show ni Vice Ganda sa TNT. Interviewuhin na lang ang mga

sana makabalik na rin si @annecurtissmith tapos miss q&a or kalokalike 🥰 for me, no need naman ireformat eh, masyado malawak ang term. just one segment lang na papatok 💯 no live audience really took it's toll on the hosts kaya humahaba ang chikahan. pero kaya naman ma-control.
