There are different variety TV shows in the Philippines that give entertainment to the public. These variety TV shows give viewers a chance to watch different singing and dancing performances of celebrities.
While some of these variety TV shows like ABS-CBN’s ASAP and GMA’s former Sunday variety show, SOP, just shows live performances of celebrities and give tribute performances to OPM legends.
On an almost daily basis, except every Sunday, we get to watch shows like It’s Showtime, and Eat Bulaga every lunchtime. These shows are filled with different celebrity hosts.
They also have many segments that give people the opportunity to showcase their talents like Tawag ng Tanghalan for It’s Showtime and Miss Millennial Philippines 2018 for Eat Bulaga.
In Eat Bulaga, one of their most famous segments is still on-air, Juan For All, All for Juan. This segment of the shows gives people money and many other freebies that they could instantly win.
Before having It’s Showtime, ABS-CBN had Magandang Tanghali Bayan and, of course, Wowowee.
Who could forget the iconic game of Hep Hep Hooray that was played so many times in birthday parties and other special events?
Of course, the man who carried this show is comedian, actor, TV host, and businessman, Willie Revillame.
