  • Non-celebrity Filipinos basked in the spotlight last Saturday (Oct 24) during the launch of “Showtime,” the newest tal­ent variety show on The Filipino Channel (TFC) hosted by comedian Vhong Navar­ro, actress Anne Curtis, trivia king Kuya Kim Atienza and band vocalists Teddy of Rocksteddy and Jugs of Itchyworms.

    “Showtime” is a showcase of delightful performances of Filipinos from all walks of life. “It’s a party where everyone is in­vited. It doesn’t matter how good or raw you are, you are welcome to show your stuff because ‘Showtime’ is your show, your time,” ABS-CBN business unit head Alou Almaden said.

    ordinary-folkOrdinary folks who have been dream­ing to be seen on TV had their time to show what they can do. While a group of tricycle drivers rapped, other contestants danced and even cross-dressed to bring laughter and amusement on stage.

    “Here, every Filipino can shine and get to entertain our kababayans worldwide. It’s all about Filipinos entertaining Filipi­nos,” Almaden added.

    The program also allows the viewers and audience to participate in the pro­gram in ways never before seen on Philip­pine TV. Usually, judges and viewers get to boot out contestants, but in “Showtime,” viewers can oust judges too! Judges are made up of four guest celebrities and a resident judge. Stand-up comic Vice Ganda who acts as the resident judge provides added comic relief.

    With a unique format, “Showtime” eas­ily won viewers’ hearts as proven by its remarkable rating of 14.1% last Saturday based on the TNS National TV Ratings.
