GMA NETWORK WINS ANOTHER LEGAL BATTLE!

17 comments

The Caloocan City Regional Trial Court Branch 126 has junked a civil complaint filed by a certain Ronald Virola against GMA Network and one of its anchors, Mike Enriquez, over two episodes aired on “Imbestigador” nine years ago.

Virola’s complaint—in which he claimed that “Imbestigadors”’s broadcast of a raid in his Caloocan abode in its Dec. 14 and 28, 2002 episodes, was malicious and had caused him severe humiliation and anxiety—has no merit, according to presiding judge Lorenza Bordios in a 26-page decision dated Nov. 10, 2011, GMA News Online reported on Dec. 29.

GMA NEWS BINATIKOS ANG "ENTENG NG INA MO!"

49 comments

"Enteng ng Ina Mo" (MZ, Octoarts Films, and APT Entertainment) is just too much, an excess, that it is not anymore amusing but simply toxic to the mind and spirit. That this movie is the "second best" in the Metro Manila Film Festival this year is a big riddle for me. I watched "Manila Kingpin," the grand winner, and I cannot fathom the distance between the best and the second best. It is a wide—as wide a universe maybe—and dark laughing space.

ABS-CBN FIGHTS BACK! POINTING GMA-7 TO STAY OUT OF THE ISSUE!

50 comments
As reply, ABS-CBN's corporate communications head, Bong Osorio, sent this brief text message : "Why is GMA making a comment when it is not party to this case?"

It may be recalled that the issue between ABS-CBN and AGB Nielsen started in 2007, when ABS-CBN accused GMA-7 of ratings fraud in the areas of Bacolod and Iloilo.

AGB was the ratings service provider to both stations at the time.Former employees of GMA-7's regional group, interviewed by ABS-CBN's TV Patrol, claimed that Regional GMA (RGMA) president Miguel "Mike" Enriquez was involved in the alleged ratings fraud.

SEGUNDA MANO INCHED CLOSER TO PANDAY 2 IN THE 2ND DAY! BATTLE CONTINUES!

However another Star Cinema production lead by Ms. Kris Aquino is fast approaching with Panday 2 with over P17 million in sales.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow accelerated to the 5th place with P8.7 million.  

MVP OFFERS TO BUY GMA NETWORK FOR P500 B?!

30 comments

Online reports are buzzing out yesterday about the rumored take over of TV5 Chairman Manny Pangilinan to the country's No.1, ratings wise, TV Network, GMA Network.  But what keeps us astounded is the circulating amount of the deal! The offer according to reports amounts to a mind blogging P500 billion!

Personally, TV NETWORK WAR, thinks this figure is way too exaggerated considering that the company's current value according to PSE only totals to P30 billion. If this P500 billion figure is true, then MVP might be risking too much attempting to buy a company 17 times its current market value!

Business wise, GMA Network should be not be valued greater than its current market value of P30 billion because its revenues and net income are expected to contract in the coming years with market share in the advertising market expected to shrink courtesy of new competition from TV 5 and the awaiting entrance of San Miguel via IBC 13 and RPN. Also, the country's impending digital shift may also pose threat to the company's revenues as more channels will be made available in the free-to-air market.

If the rumored buyout is true, we are betting that MVP's offer  is somewhere close to P50 billion, a far cry from the P500 billion. This amount (P50 billion) is still  60% above GMA's market price and company owners might consider this a good deal considering the contraction that is waiting for the company in the near future.

KC NAGSISI SA GINAWANG PAGSISIWALAT?

3 comments
MAY NAGBULONG sa amin na matapos isiwalat ni KC Concepcion ang galit nito kay Piolo Pascual, nakakaramdam daw ngayon ng pagsisisi ang dalaga dahil napatunayan niya sa sarili na hanggang ngayon ay mahal pa rin niya ang aktor, na dahil sa kanyang kadaldalan ay nadungisan ngayon ang pagkatao.

Ang hindi pag-imik at pagbibigay-komento ni Piolo sa usapin nang kanyang gender ay nakatulong upang mapagtanto ni KC ang nagawa niyang kamalian sa lalaking kanyang minahal. Feeling ng aktres ay talo siya in the end, dahil nasira na ang kanilang relasyon ni Piolo, nanatili pa ring mahal niya ito.”

 MANILA, Philippines - Diversifying conglomerate San Miguel Corp. (SMC) plans to buy one of the government-sequestered TV stations.

On the sidelines of the Cyber Bay Corp. annual stockholders meeting on Wednesday, Ramon Ang, SMC president and chief operating officer, said the company was interested to buy either IBC 13 or RPN 9 if the government would be ready to auction these off.

The company is undaunted by RPN 9's huge arrears and tax deficiencies, saying they could easily take this on since SMC has a lot of tax credits, according to Ang.

“If these are bid out, we will join,” he said.

Just hours ago, the mega daughter, KC Concepcion, signed a 1-year contract with ABS-CBN...

When I saw her today she looked blooming, but for some reason I felt a certain kind of sadness was still lying within her.

News broke a few days ago that KC is no longer part of Sunday variety show, ASAP Rocks and talk show, The Buzz... The reason? Well, your guess is as good as mine.

KC TATANGGALIN NA SA THE BUZZ AT ASAP DAHIL SA PAGLIPAT SA VIVA!

8 comments

It's official! KC Concepcion is now a Viva talent. KC has just signed an official 3-year management contract with Viva Entertainment, the same talent arm who handles the career of her mom Sharon Cuneta. But after leaving Star Magic for Viva Talent Agency, KC Concepcion now also bid her two Kapamilya shows goodbye "The Buzz" and "ASAP Rocks". But the mega-daughter remains to be part of ABS-CBN upcoming primetime teleserye "Alta" opposite Gretchen Barretto and Angelica Panganiban.

Now that KC has moved to Mr. Vic del Rosario's talent management who facilitates Sharon's P1-billion contract with TV5, the possibility of her leaving ABS-CBN for TV5 is not far from impossible given the current situation of her personal life now with another Kapamilya's prized possession Piolo Pascual.

CORRECTING HISTORY. Kahit pitong taon na ang nagdaan, buhay pa rin ang pait sa mga mahal niya sa buhay na naniniwalang nadaya si FPJ sa presidential elections noong 2004.

Sa ulat nga ng ABS-CBN news programs na TV Patrol at Bandila kagabi, sinariwa ni Mary Grace sa kanyang talumpati ang laban na kinamatayan ng kanyang ama.

Hiling nga nito na sana ay maiwasto ang kasaysayan.

Ayon kay Grace, "Gusto ba ninyo na balang-araw pag binuklat natin ang mga libro ay nakalagay doon na 14th President, pero ito nandaya?

"Hindi ba mas okay na lang sabihin na naupong pangulo, pero ang talagang pangulo ay si FPJ?"

ABS-CBN AND KANTAR MEDIA'S CREDIBILITY QUESTIONED!

63 comments
ABS-CBN is ruling the ratings game, according to official data from Kantar Media. But how reliable is Kantar Media exactly? Industry insiders often refer to it as the “less experienced” ratings provider compared to AGB Nielsen Philippines.

Kantar’s three-year nationwide ratings survey has a smaller number of panel homes (1,370) compared to Nielsen’s nationwide ratings service (2,005 panel homes), which started 2007. Easily, ABS-CBN stands out as Kantar Media’s biggest client.

ABS-CBN – in its press releases – is claiming that Kantar services a total of 22 TV networks. Is this ABS-CBN’s way of trying to justify its use of Kantar figures – by claiming that Kantar has 22 TV networks as clients? But how come only ABS-CBN and NBN are mentioned in their press release? I’m very much interested to know what these other networks are. I have to admit that I can’t name 22 TV networks operating here in the country.

Actually, nasulat ko na dati na mismong si megastar Sharon Cuneta ang nakiusap kay Boss Vic na siya na ang humawak ng career ng anak since wala naman palang contract si KC sa Star Magi...c. Verbal lang daw kasi ang agreement ni KC sa Star Magic.

Ito ay after ng controversial na relasyon nila ni Piolo Pascual

TODO MAX POISED AS THE MOST WATCHED SITCOM NATIONWIDE!

14 comments
Proving that the concepts of the Kapamilya Comedy remain undisputed, its flagship sitcom “TODA Max” is now the No. 1 sitcom based on the data from Kantar Media.
“TODA Max” garnered 23% average monthly TV rating in November, the highest among all comedy programs.

Now that Angel has joined the sitcom topbilled by Robin Padilla, Vhong Navarro and Pokwang, more viewers are expected to be hooked in this family-oriented sitcom.

Angel said she’s now ready to show the funny or “kengkay” side of her. She revealed that besides studying her assigned role as Isabel Padausdos, she also brought out the comedienne in her.

“My role is Justin Bibbo’s (Vhong Navarro) girlfriend. I made sure that what Justin thinks of his leading lady is the same with how I look at my role, so we can have good chemistry,” Angel said.“TODA Max” was Angel’s first-ever sitcom on the Kapamilya network. It can be recalled that at first she was just a guest celebrity in the sitcom, but the network’s management  noticed her innate hilarity. No wonder she’s now a part of the No.1 comedy program in the country.

GMA NETWORK ADMITS 4TH QUARTER REVENUES ARE STILL BAD!

10 comments
The television station posted lower spending from its major advertisers, mainly multinational companies that were affected by the economic crisis in the US and Europe.

“Fourth quarter was bad, just like the third quarter. We were hoping in the third quarter that we would recover in the fourth but it did not happen,” Gozon said.

He said GMA Network just booked close to P1 billion worth of revenues in November, lower than last year’s over P1 billion. He said the company was still expecting revenues of less than P1 billion in December, a traditonally strong month.

“We were strong in the first half. I thought it will continue but something happened. Major advertisers reduced their spending. There is nothing wrong with our ratings, it is really the money available for advertisements,” Gozon said.

Sa unang pagkakataon ay nagsalita na si Rhian Ramos kaugnay ng kontrobersiya sa pagitan nila ng dating boyfriend na si Mo Twister.

Sa one-on-one interview ni Pia Guanio kay Rhian—na ipinalabas sa 24 Oras ngayong gabi, December 7—isiniwalat ng young actress ang kanyang saloobin sa naging relasyon nila ni Mo at sa alegasyong ipina-abort diumano niya ang kanilang anak.

Sa kabuuan ng panayam ni Pia kay Rhian, na nakasuot ng long sleeve na blouse at walang make-up, bakas sa mukha ng aktres ang pagkabalisa.

Ilang beses din napaiyak si Rhian habang kinakausap siya ni Pia.

PIOLO: HINDI AKO BAKLA!!

17 comments
UNTIL now ay wala pa ring humpay ang usapan tungkol sa break-up nina KC Concepcion at Piolo Pascual. Tila natabunan na nito ang pag-usad ng kaso  sa pagkamatay ni Ramgen Revilla. Sa pag-amin ni KC na hiwalay na sila ni Piolo, nabuhay muli ang gender issue sa actor.

Nakausap namin si Boy Abunda sa bagong bukas na restaurant ng kanyang kaibigan na si Boy So, ang Sir Boy Republique sa may Panay Avenue, tungkol sa resulta ng ginawa niyang explosive interview sa kapwa niya host sa The Buzz na si KC. Hindi nais ni Kuya Boy ang magbigay ng sarili niyang opinyon sa mga isiniwalat ni KC. Maging sa isyu kung dapat ba o hindi magsalita rin ni Piolo sa hiwalayan nila ni KC.

“Hindi ko alam,” bungad ni Kuya Boy. “Hindi ko masasagot ‘yan kasi ako ang nag-interbyu kay KC. At hindi ko rin masasagot ‘yan dahil interviewer ako. I would wish that he speaks. Kung hindi man sa akin magpa-intebryu, sa ibang interviewer, okey  lang. I mean, hindi lang naman ako ang nag-iinterbyu. And it’s not my call kung sa akin siya magpa-intebryu. Kung sa akin, fine. Kung hindi ako, okey lang din.’

Matatandaan na si Kuya Boy din noon sa The Buzz ang nag-interbyu kay Piolo kung saan diretsahan niyang tinanong ang aktor kung bakla ba siya. Sinagot din naman ‘yun ni Piolo na hindi siya bakla.

Manila, Philippines – AFTER Sharon Cuneta ay tatlo pang pambatong artista ng ABS-CBN network ang tiyak na raw na lilipat sa TV5. Dalawang sikat na artista at isang newscaster.

Ito ang tsika sa amin ng isang ABS-CBN insider. Ayon sa source namin, mukhang hindi na raw pipigilan ng “big bosses” ng Lopez-owned station... ang tatlo. Kahit na ano raw kasing pangungumbinsi sa tatlong personalidad na manatiling Kapamilya ay decided na ang mga ito, kaya suko na ang executives ng Dos.

ABS-CBN SUNDAY LINE-UP MASSACRES GMA RIVALS BOTH IN NATIONAL RATINGS AND TV ADS!

Judging from the result of National Ratings and Commercial ad loadings of GMA-7 and ABS-CBN, it can be inferred that the National Ratings now is the primary basis of TV Advertisement Placement in the Philippines. With prices now at par on both TV Networks, ABS-CBN now appears to have the upper hand in terms of  revenue shares as most of its winning prime time programs get to have a bigger share in the ad revenue.  Almost all winners in the National Ratings also saw its victory in the ads market, with the exception of 24 Oras which wins in the tv ads but slightly losses in TV ratings.
