Vice Ganda emotionally recalled how the phenomenon of AlDub conquered their noontime show back then.
In an episode of It’s Showtime during their segment Tawag Ng Tanghalan, the comedian had some reminiscing.
Vice admitted that it came to the point he accepted on himself that It’s Showtime was coming to an end because of AlDub.
AlDub was the unexpected love team of Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards. It all started in their “kalye-serye.”
At that time, the ratings of Eat Bulaga was really on the top leaving their rival noontime show of ABS-CBN It’s Showtime at the bottom.
Vice felt so threatened at that time that he will lose his job and the management will give up their show.
This was brought up during Tawag Ng Tanghalan and asked about the thing in his life he wouldn’t want to happen.
He said that he can’t bare if the time comes that It’s Showtime will come into an end.
Vice then started recalling how AlDub conquered the tv ratings at that time.
“Panahon ng AlDub, feeling ko wala nang nanonood ng Showtime.
“Parang buong Pilipinas, nakatutok sa AlDub.”
The Unkabogable star also said that he kept on fighting but deep inside him, he already accepted what could happen.
“’Tapos ako, laban na laban pa din ako. Pero dumating ako sa punto na habang lumalaban ako, tinanggap ko na, feeling ko, anytime soon, tatawagan ako ng management at sasabihan ako na, ‘We are cancelling the show.’
However, the ABS-CBN didn’t give them up.
“‘Tapos hindi nangyari. Hindi ginawa ng ABS-CBN.
“Hindi ako nilaglag. Hindi nilaglag yung show.”
After going through this, Vice promised on himself that he will never leave his home network no matter what. The AlDub phenomenon really affected him back then.
