When top-rating “Showtime” aired their episode last Friday (January 27), everybody thought it’s their farewell episode.
The controversial episode was discussed in all social networking sites, asking question if the Kapamilya show is really cancelled. Speculations were raised that it is not being cancelled but instead will be reformatted and will be transferred to a new timeslot.
Then there’s the “Unkabogable Party Party Bus” roaming around the Metro today (January 30) including EDSA, Ayala, Pasig, Luneta, Monumento, Quezon City, among others.
Now dubbed “It’s Showtime”, the newest noontime show will premiere on February 06 replacing Happy Yipee Yehey.
Here’s an official statement sent by ABS-CBN regarding Showtime:
