Dreamscape, an entertainment division of ABS-CBN meanwhile immediately congratulated It’s Showtime on their IG account showing the comparative ratings between the 2 noontime shows.
It’s Showtime’s success in Monday’s rating also helped their Tuesday’s as the show continues to dominate its competitor. On Tuesday January 12, It’s Showtime again scored higher than its rival getting 15.3% verus EB’s 15.2%.
The January 12 episode of Showtime features the 5th win of Tawag ng Tanghalan defending winner Dominador Alviola. Alviola now becomes the first Tawag ng Tanghalan semi-finalist after winning 5 consecutive days.
