Showtime returns on air after suspension

UntitledShowtime returns on air today  January 19 after seven days of being suspended byMovie and Television Review and Classification Board(MTRCB).

“ABS-CBN is happy to announce that the talent-variety program Showtime will return on-air starting tomorrow, 19 Jan 2010, following the issuance of a temporary restraining order by the Court of Appeals enjoining the MTRCB from continuing to enforce the preventive suspension order on the show.

“We welcome the CA resolution dated 15 January 2010, which states: ‘For reasons afore-stated, and as prayed for by petitioner, let a TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER be issued, as it is hereby issued, effective sixty (60) days from notice hereof, enjoining respondent MTRCB, including any and all persons acting in their behalf and under their command and authority, from continuing to enforce the Preventive Suspension Order dated January 11, 2010 issued against petitioner, pending the resolution of the instant petition.’”

Showtime’s suspension resulted after guest judge Rosanna Roces made a comment about teachers after one member of a group contestant failed to answer her question about National Hero Jose Rizal on its January 7 live episode.

The MTRCB also explained that this incident was already the second violation of the celebrity judge. The show was also warned about Rosanna’s remark about Showtime‘s resident judge Vice Ganda on its January 4 live episode.

Celebrities’ talents on ‘Magpasikat’

Due to the suspension of the talent-reality show “Showtime” for  20 days, Showtime replaced by “Magpasikat”. Unlike Showtime, this show will showcase the talents of celebrities.

The suspension rooted from the statement of Rosanna Roces pertaining to teachers. She said, they (teachers) are just repeaters.

Evening the same day, “showtime” made a public announcement that was broadcasted by Boy Abunda in his late night show “Showbiz News Ngayon” (SNN) saying the management of the show is suspending Rosanna Roces.

Even though self regulations were imposed, still they received suspension from MTRCB. And since the order is effective immediately, ABS-CBN stopped the airing of the show.

MTRCB suspends Showtime for 20 days

ShowtimeAng Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) ay sinuspende ng 20-araw ang hit na show na “Showtime” dahil sa mga di inaasahang statements ni Ms. Rosanna Roces na sa linggong iyon ay isa sa mga hurado. Binitawan ni Osang ang mga salitang patuon sa mga guro matapos tanungin ang isa sa mga contestant matapos magperform, ang naturang kalahok ay mula sa Calamba,Laguna.

Ang tanong ni Osang ay tungkol kay Jose Rizal, bakit daw ang buong pangalan ni Rizal ay Jose Protacio Rizal samantalang ang ngalan ng knayang ama ay Francisco Mercado at ang kanyang ina ay si Teodora Alonzo?,ani ni Osang. Nang hindi makasagot ang contestant ay sinaad ni Osang ang ganito,

“Murahin mo yung teacher mo, ha! Ako minura ko yung teacher ko nung hindi niya sinagot sa akin ‘yan. Oo, walanghiya ‘yang mga teacher na ‘yan, hindi sinasabi yung totoo sa atin, e! Ikaw taga-roon ka hindi mo alam.

“Pero mga kabataan,” patuloy niya, “huwag kayong makuntento sa itinuturo ng libro at ng teacher. Magtatanong po kayo, hindi masama iyon. Oo, dahil ang mga teachers, they were just repeaters. Itinuturo nila kung ano ang itinuro sa kanila. Hindi na nila itinuturo kung ano ang gustong malaman ng mga bata.

“‘Yan, isang trivia para sa ‘yo. Hanapin mo. I-Wikipedia mo, malalaman mo,” saad niya sa kalahok.

Ngunit sa parehong episode din ay ipinagtanggol ni Vice Ganda,resident judge sa Showtime ang mga guro.

“Bago ang lahat, gusto ko munang magpasalamat sa lahat ng mga naging guro ko nung unang-unang beses pa lang akong nag-aral hanggang sa natapos ako. Kasi napakahuhusay ng mga naging guro ko. At gusto ko lang sabihin na ang mga guro, mga tao rin naman, nagkakamali rin ‘yan, di ba? Kaya huwag nating lahatin. Pero siguro, may mga gurong nagkamali, pero napakarami rin namang mahuhusay lalo na sa Pilipinas.”

Dagdag ni Vice Ganda, “Kahit mga artista, hindi naman lahat napakahusay. Hindi naman lahat ng pulitiko, napakahusay. Meron din namang gurong hindi, pero nakaparami rin namang mahuhusay. At ang laki ng bahagi nila sa buhay natin.”


“In the spirit of self-regulation, ABS-CBN removed Rosanna Roces as a judge in SHOWTIME after she made statements against the teachers in the January 7 live show. But despite this, MTRCB still imposed a 20-day preventive suspension for the program.

“A preventive suspension is issued to stop further violations, if there were any committed, or for the interest or welfare of the public. Thus, the network questions the need for said preventive suspension when Rosanna Roces has already been removed from the program.

“SHOWTIME is a highly entertaining show watched by many Filipinos. It helps promote and showcase the creativity and talent of kapamilyas nationwide, uplifts their spirit and provides opportunities to improve their lives.”

ABS-CBN is planning to make an appeal to lift the suspension. The network was reportedly surprised by the MTRCB’s swift decision because they are set to meet on Thursday, Jan. 14, to talk about the issue.

Habang hindi pa naaayos ang issue hinggil sa suspensyon ng Showtime Live! pansamanatalang mapapanood ang portion ng Showtime na “Magpasikat” kung saan mga showbiz personalities ang kalahok sa programa.

Osang on a warpath against the Revillas . . .

According to Dream Factory’s writer Mario Bautista a recent episode of a TV 5 showbiz talk show “Juicy” hosted by IC Mendoza and Alex Gonzaga was screened by MTRCB, for its star guess Rosanna Roces made scandalous remarks to the Revillas. These statements were deemed not suitable for the public.

Roces pointed out the Revillas’ misgivings to her daughter Grace Adriano and Grace’s and Bong Revilla’s son Gab. She alleged that Bong never supported Gab for seven years and made several blatant statements on the Senator.

On the other hand someone within the Revillas commented on the words of the sexy actress. “She could be a tried for her libelous remarks” this person said.
