JUDY ANN TURNS DOWN MILLION-PESO DEAL!

7 comments
May offer pala kay Judy Ann Santos na mag-endorse ng isang brand ng detergent at kahit maganda ang offer pati ang talent fee, hindi pa rin niya tinanggap ang offer.

Ang katuwiran ni Judy Ann, hindi maniniwala ang tao na magkaibang brand ng detergent ang gamit nila sa bahay dahil nauna nang nag-endorse si Ryan Agon­cillo ng detergent. Pinatunayan ng aktres na hindi lahat ng bagay ay nakukuha sa pera.

In the same way na hindi rin tatanggapin ni Ryan ang movie offer ng Unitel Pictures na entry sa December filmfest kung matutuloy si Judy Ann sa movie nina Sen. Bong Revilla, Jr. at Vic Sotto.

PRIMETIME QUEEN NG GMA-7, HINDI NAGRARATE ANG SHOW!

20 comments
Napapatawa ang amiga namin when Marian Rivera was introduced in a musical variety show as Primetime Queen.

Actually, our friend feels that it was a misnomer to call Marian as such dahil hindi naman nagre-rate ang kanyang soap opera with Dingdong Dantes.

Entonces, hindi puwedeng tawaging Primetime Queen si Marian dahil kakarampot nga naman ang televiewers ng show nito.

TALENTS NG TV5 NAGREREKLAMO NA!

10 comments
FEELING daw ng ilang talent ng TV network ay malulunod na sila dahil sa pagbaha ng maraming talento sa naturang istasyon na hanggang ngayon ay patuloy pa rin sa pagtanggap kahit nagsisiksikan na sila.

Lunod nga naman ang career ng iba kapag ganito kabait ang istasyon. Saang programa nila isisiksik ang mga ito kung parang mga kabute itong panay ang sulputan? Tanggap sila nang tanggap. Salo nang salo sa mga itinatapon ng ibang TV station. Kaya sa konting panahon pa, magkakapalitan na sila ng mga mukha. Hahaha!

Ang hirap pa nito, kung sino ang huling pumasok siya ang paborito. ‘Yung mga nagtiyaga unti-unting naiitsapuwera.

P10 BILLION OPTION TO BUY GMA NETWORK HOVERS THE CORPORATE WORLD!

6 comments
THERE is a buzz going the rounds of financial executives regarding the offer of a possible buy-in into GMA 7 network of a big conglomerate that could alter the media industry’s landscape in the country. The buzz about the planned buy-in was reportedly sparked by the payment of the conglomerate of P10 billion.

The reports gained traction with the pronouncement earlier of GMA 7 top honcho Felipe Gozon that another conglomerate, outside of the group of Manny V. Pangilinan, is interested in the network. The MVP group is said to have offered between P40 billion and P45 billion for the company.

Wala pang advisory ang GMA 7 kung kailan ibabalik ang Magpakailanman, ang drama anthology hosted by Ms. Mel Tiangco, pero tama ba ang nadinig naming nagti-taping o malapit na itong mag-taping?

As a matter of fact, ang dalawang episodes ng Magpakailanman ay ididirehe ni Maryo J. delos Reyes. Ito muna ang gagawin ni Direk Maryo habang hindi pa sinisimulan ang taping ng next soap niyang Sana Dalawa ang Puso Ko.

MAY nabasa kaming item na kabado na raw ang ABS-CBN sa pagmi-merged o pagsasanib puwersa ng GMA7 at TV5.

Saka ilang dekada na ba sa ere ang Dos at isama mo na rin diyan ang hindi na mabilang na pinasikat nilang mga artista, ang TV5 ba may na-build-up na sumikat? Waley pa!

Ang kuwento pa ng komedyante, “Ewan ko kung dapat kong sabihin. Siguro mahal na mahal ni Manny Pangilinan yung Eat Bulaga kaya niya binibili yung Siyete. Nabalitaan ko iyan sa kanya mismo, e.

AGB'S HOUSEHOLD RATINGS RELEASED BACK ON PUBLIC!

17 comments
With improved and overwhelming  Television Ratings for GMA-7, Philippine Entertainment Portal, a subsidiary of GMA Network, now revived the release of AGB Nielsen's Household Ratings. It can be remembered that a few years ago the said Internet Portal rested the release of the Household Ratings in favor of People Ratings amidst strong competition from ABS-CBN. But with GMA's renewed strength in Mega Manila, the public may now enjoy AGB's Household Ratings which is more comparable with Kantar Media's National Urban Household   Ratings.

ABS-CBN, GMA-7 AT TV5 PALAKIHAN NG OFFER PARA MAIKONTRATA SI JESSICA SANCHEZ!

Wala pa ‘yung “American Idol Finale” ay may kani-kaniya nang representative ng ABS-CBN, TV5 at GMA-7 ang umaawit sa kampo ni Jessica Sanchez para maikontrata ang singing idol.

Pero wala kaming balita kung sino ang may pinakamalaking offer at ang nagwaging istasyon. Dahil ang totoo rin, ipagpapatuloy ni Jessica ang kanyang career sa US bilang recording artist at ang sabi nga ni Thalia (aka Marimar) sa kanyang twitter account: “Wow! Great news! Tommy Mottola just call me from American Idol and he is confirmed to work in the first Jessica Sanchez CD!”

LUNA BLANCA'S DEBUT SCORES A SLIM WIN IN MEGA MANILA!

11 comments
GMA-7's newest primetime series, LUNA BLANCA, has made a fine debut in Mega Manila, scoring a trivial lead over closest rival, Princess and I. AGB Nielsen reported Luna Blanca (LB) garnering 26.3% household rating, up by 0.5 percentage points from Princess and I with 25.8% in Mega Manila. However this might just be a temporary success as series debut usually has a slight boost in viewership due to viewer's curiosity. The real score of the battle is to be seen in the coming days as LB's plot progresses.

6 comments
Pagkatapos ng Wako Wako, magpo-focus muna si Ai-Ai sa susunod niyang project sa ABS-CBN, ang Pilipinas Got Talent Season 4.  Kung gagawa man daw siya ng teleserye, posibleng sa susunod pang taon.
 Sabi ni Ai-Ai, “Usually, once a year lang ang teleserye ng artista.  Unless, kasama sa kontrata mo yung dalawa o tatlo.”
 Binigyang-linaw din ni Ai-Ai na hindi na siya matutuloy na makasama sa gagawing pelikula nina Vic Sotto at Bong Revilla. 
Silang tatlo sana ang magkakasama sa pang-Metro Manila Film Festival entry nila ngayong December 2012.

ABS-CBN emerges as the worst performer based on earnings metrics among 38 firms in the Philippines, tracked by at least three analysts, Thomson Reuters StarMine data shows.

The broadcaster fares badly with an Analyst Revision Score (ARM) of 1 and an Earnings Quality (EQ) score of 6.

MANILA, Philippines - CIGNAL, the Philippines ’ fastest growing satellite TV provider and TV5 sister company, will launch the Weather Information Network ( WIN ) – the country’s first dedicated 24/7 weather and public information channel. The launch is opportune as the country prepares for the onset of the rainy season which according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) starts the middle of May this year.

PAGASA Chief Dr. Nathaniel Servando singled out TV5 and lauded its commitment to improving weather news broadcasting. “TV5’s continuing improvement in their weather broadcasting system and closer cooperation with PAGASA will contribute significantly to the reduction of damages and casualties due to severe weather events,”.  “The longstanding collaboration between PAGASA and the media, TV5 in particular has served the public very well specially during extreme weather events by communication accurate weather information in a timely and prudent manner to the public,” he added.

The merger will be cemented with a song in the heart and in the name of brotherhood.

CLAUDINE DESPERATELY NEEDS PSYCHO TREATMENT, GABRIELA

2 comments
Lumapit pala si Claudine Barretto sa Gabriela para humingi ng tulong dahil nagkaroon daw ito ng emotional trauma sa nangyaring gulong kinasangkutan nila ni Raymart Santiago kay Mon Tulfo.Ayon kay Lana Linaban na Secretary-General ng Gabriela, humingi raw ng tulong sa kanila si Claudine kaya tutulungan nila ito.

Hindi raw sila makikialam sa kaso para alamin pa kung sino sa kanila ang nagsasabi ng totoo. Humingi lang daw ng tulong si Claudine kaya tutulungan nila ito kung kinakailangan nito ng suporta ng naturang samahan.

Kung talagang emotionally stressed daw ito, nandiyan daw ang Gabriela para bigyan ito ng tamang psychological treatment para mabalik sa normal na takbo ang buhay nito.

GMA-7 POSTS 6% DROP IN AD REVENUES DESPITE CLAIMING NUTAM LEADERSHIP!

29 comments
Publicly listed firm GMA Network experienced a 5% drop in airtime revenues to P2.707 billion for the first 3 months of 2012. This was despite claiming TV Ratings supremacy over close rivals ABS-CBN and TV5.
 
Core business unit GMA Channel 7, which accounted for 90 percent of total airtime revenues, fell 6% year-on-year to around P2.44 billion. 

This has caused the company to incur a 27% decrease in profits to  P388 million from P534 million netted a year earlier.  This has been among the lowest profit level of GMA for the past 9 years which is largely attributed to the maturing market and stiffer competition from TV5.


Rival ABS-CBN Corp. reported a 4% increase in airtime revenue and a 1% increase in recurring net income, while TV 5 remained red.

MANILA, Philippines - (UPDATED 2:15 p.m.) The chairman of GMA Network Inc. said another conglomerate is interested in acquiring the broadcast company.

During GMA Network's annual stockholders meeting, Felipe Gozon said a second company apart from the PLDT group has expressed interest in buying into the broadcast firm. He however refused to divulge the identity of the new suitor.

"There were others who expressed interest. Of course, Filipino conglomerate. GMA is very attractive and desirable not only to MVP," Gozon said, referring to Manuel V. Pangilinan, who chairs Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co.

The PLDT group has been reported to have offered to acquire GMA Network, but talks have stalled on an acceptable price for both parties.

With improved National TV Ratings in the first quarter of 2012, ABS-CBN has implemented a hike in adverting rates early this year, citing an article from ABS-CBN News. 

However, despite this increase (in ad rates) ABS-CBN managed to post a 4 % growth in airtime revenues from P4 billion in 2011 to P4.2 billion in the first three months of 2012.The increase in rates proved to be reasonable as subscriptions from large advertisers remained strong. 

GOZON WISHES TO SELL GMA-7: PROFITS CONTINUE TO DROP!

17 comments
An official of GMA Network Corp. said all major shareholder groups said have agreed to sell GMA-7 at the right price, as matured market and rising costs pull company profit down.

This profit drop was despite the company's effort to control cost and protect revenue flow through an early booking scheme which calls for advertisers to seal early subscriptions to GMA Programs for the entire year.

ABS-CBN ADMITS WEAK NOONTIME RATINGS HINDER REVENUE GROWTH!

12 comments
In a press briefing ABS-CBN chief finance officer Rolando Valdueza admits  that weak ratings in its noontime block offset growth in its advertising business. Valdueza stressed that in spite of  a 4% growth in its Advertising Income for the first quarter of 2012, the increase would have been better if not to the weak advertising income from its noontime block. ABS-CBN suffered drastic decrease in ratings on its noontime block in 2010 when it canceled Wowowee and Willie Revillame for the alleged disrespect to the Network's Executives. Since then ABS-CBN lost its National Leadership to rival GMA-7 due to the significant drop in Daytime Ratings.

Although the Film allegedly recieved positive reviews from international critics as claimed by GMA, it has somehow failed to appeal even to almost a million Filipino citizens residing in US and   Canada. Is the hype for the said movie  just  media frenzy?
