According to Jimi Escala of Balita, a very popular show that has consistently topped the ratings for many years will be cancelled soon after the No. 1 TV network's big bosses decided that the time has come for it to be replaced.
MAY nakarating na tsika sa amin na nakatakda nang mamaalam sa ere ang isang very popular program ng numero unong TV station.
Ilang taon na ring namamayagpag sa ratings chart ang naturang programa. Isa ito sa mga programa ng istasyon na talagang ipinagmamalaki ng mga bossing ng network dahil talagang tinututukan ng viewers.
Pero sadyang may hangganan ang lahat.
Sa ilang taon nang pamamayagpag sa ere, hindi na mabilang ang mga itinapat na programa na natalo at napilitang sarhan ng kalabang network, nawalan na ng kakumpetensiyang show ang programang tinutukoy namin.
Pero ayon sa aming very reliable source, napagdesisyunan ng management na, “It is about time na mamaalam na ito sa viewers.”
“Mahigit isang dekada na rin naman ang pamayagpag ng ___ ____ (TV show), pero nakakagulat kung bakit kailangan na rin itong tanggalin,” sey ng kasamahan naming reporter.
Sa nakarating na tsika sa amin, may kapalit agad na programa ang main host ng show, same format, pero ililipat sa ibang timeslot.
Ang hindi lang malinaw sa amin kung ano ang mangyayari sa co-hosts na wala pa raw kaalam-alam sa plano ng network.
Is it 'The Buzz'? We think so, and we agree that the time is right for it to be replaced. Why?
The internet, blogging and social media has overtaken 'The Buzz.' While some of its reports are still entertaining, especially the interviews, many of its news items have already been reported and discussed days before on social media and other online venues. Moreover, 'The Buzz' has also become more of a promotions arms of the network with features on upcoming shows and movies.
'The Buzz' has beaten a number of its rivals in the ratings game for many years, and it still draws many viewers weekly. But some of its segments have become less interesting. It needs to be reformatted or replaced.
Hopefully, its replacement will still have Boy Abunda as on of the hosts. He brings a different perspective to many discussions and this is what sets him apart from the rest. Adobo Talk PH
