Am I so glad there is a new kind of television programming. The warring networks had come up with real quality drama productions that are not just entertaining but educational as well. I feel that most of our people, the common tao, are beginning to learn much about who we are, our culture, our character, our identity as a race. And we have so much to be proud of. I am also thankful that some channels decided to air international news for free. At least our people now are attuned to what is happening globally.

Yeah. Local television is beginning to go back to when they produced quality tv shows which are considered classic until now. I admit I was never a fan of prime time tv specially when the koreanovelas are peaking. But just recently I just saw the new show of channel 2 and I admit, it was really nice and it peaked my curiousity, so I find myself watching a local channel at night (which I have not done since I was in elementary!) I do hope that this would go on and more new quality shows will be shown.

since the first two inputs here mentioned TV5, i will add more with our now favorite network. i feel so glad that the Kapatid network started a lot of new shows, not to mention the AksyonTV Channel they have just opened (Channel 41 in Manila which showcases News and Public Affairs, I guess). Alagang Kapatid (airing on Saturdays and Sundays in the morning) helps the needy in terms of health and other medical issues. I am proud of the show, not only because they helped us with my son's surgery (tonsillectomy at St. Luke's), but I personally feel and experienced how Ms. Cheryl, the staff and crew care for their subjects.

yeah madam, cheryl is a wonderful girl and is a very kind person. we really feel how she cares for the people who needs help, the cases they get into... as for Zayzay, he's doing very great now. no more signs of apnea and we all sleep very well at night now. he's back to his hyperactivity and you could really lose sanity at times.

That's really true. It's been quite a good run that these tv networks are not only making tv shows for money but also for good quality. I think since TV 5 had started making really great shows that are competitive, the other two networks (the bigger ones) have started making a revamp on most of their shows. The standards are way better than before. I hope that this will continue so that our local shows can be something we can be proud of in the long run.

Competition is a good thing, huh! And while they are at it, I do hope these networks also begin the audition trending for their programs. There are so many untapped talents, and I am just too tired of the Guttierezes pervading the airwaves. Enough of sons and daughters of showbiz oldies. Let's have a new breed....

And to add , not only GMA and ABS are making good shows. TV5 is fast going up in terms of programs viewed. The government channel is becoming good too. My husband and I are at night would be viewing some of TV5's gag shows and we do have a good laugh from them before we go to sleep.

I saw that gag and had a good laugh! TV 5 has a good concept in the morning news. But I detest the Fermin and company paparazzi.

Okay. I'm not a fan of Philippine telvision in the past (as you might read from my previous posts) but I will admit that these days the networks do have good program concepts and good storylines. That takes a lot from me since I am an advocate of Cable TV for some years now. Even though I don't exactly and directly watch these shows, I hear the episodes when I am trying to work at my computer. The occasional TV gossip at work usually fills me in the story so far of both ABS and GMA programmes. I guess I have congratulate the creative team and the network in producing these quality shows. I know it is this teh ratings war but if you could have a good story unraveling before your eyes, would you complain? The networks goal is to entertain the masses while making money based on ratings. If a ressurected heroine does the trick, it's a win-win situation for both the audience and the network. But i stll love my cable, thank you.
