‘It’s Showtime’ host and UNICEF Philippines national ambassador, Anne Curtis extended her support for ‘Eat Bulaga’ and its hosts.
Kapamilya actress and ‘It’s Showtime’ host Anne Curtis, paid tribute to rival noontime show, ‘Eat Bulaga’, whose main hosts, Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon, recently parted ways with the show.
During her renewal of commitment to UNICEF Philippines as one of the national ambassadors, Curtis expressed her support for the show. She acknowledged it as a pioneer in the industry.
“We will always look up to Eat Bulaga. You know (that) they are the longest-running noontime show in the Philippines, and we look up to them,” she said when asked about her thoughts on the current crisis the show has been in in the past few weeks.
‘It’s Showtime’ and ‘Eat Bulaga’ have been fierce noontime rivals for fourteen years. However, that streak came to an end—or at least that’s how it seems at the moment—last Wednesday, May 30 when the three main hosts, TVJ, bade adieu to their audience. The rest of the hosts, and apparently, much of the creative team behind the show, also resigned from TAPE Inc., the producer of the show. This is now under new management.
Curtis also expressed her support for Eat Bulaga’s TVJ, underscoring the legacy they have built in the industry.
“What a journey they have had, right?” she noted, adding, “We’ll always idolize them and they have set the benchmark for Philippine noontime shows”.

The Kapamilya actress has been with ‘It’s Showtime’ since its pilot episode in 2009. She remains part of it today, hoping for more years on air to make the “madlang pipol” happy.
