TAPE Inc. Reacts to Claims that Eat Bulaga is Ending in July

Eat Bulaga is not ending in July according to TAPE Inc.

TAPE INC. – The production company behind the noontime show “Eat Bulaga,” has refuted claims that the show will end in July. Lawyer Atty. Maggie Abraham Garduque, representing TAPE Inc., dismissed the rumors and stated that there is no reason for such an assumption.

The speculation about the show’s possible cancellation emerged online due to its low ratings, particularly on July 1 when rival programs “It’s Showtime” and “E. A. T.” premiered on GTV and TV5, respectively. However, Garduque clarified that while the ratings were affected that day due to the audience’s anticipation of the new shows, the ratings of “Eat Bulaga” have since rebounded.

According to ratings reports, the viewership of “Eat Bulaga” increased by at least 0.7% as of July 3 and has continued to rise until July 5. Garduque highlighted that the show’s segments, including those featuring Isko Moreno and Buboy Villar, are performing well. She also mentioned the newly launched segment “Hey! Mr. Rider,” which has garnered significant popularity among motorcycle association members, with celebrity riders set to appear in future episodes.

Regarding the rumors, Garduque mentioned as per GMA News that their legal team will investigate whether they should file complaints against those responsible for spreading false information. She emphasized that the essence of “Eat Bulaga” is to bring happiness and assistance to Filipinos, and as long as there is an audience supporting and enjoying the show, it will continue to fulfill its purpose.

Earlier in May, Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, Joey De Leon, and several other hosts resigned from TAPE Inc. However, “Eat Bulaga” returned to the airwaves in early June with a new lineup of hosts, including Paolo Contis, Betong, Buboy Villar, Mavy and Cassy Legaspi, and Alexa Miro.
