I don't really rely on surveys because they are paid agencies what I do believe in is the number of people claiming they watched wowowee and even I myself witness the outbreak during lunch break when I got the chance to watch in on canteen or outside my workplace wowowee is the show they are watching. I really feel that wowowee innovative idea to help the people is a one good thing that makes the show Number 1 in the heart of masang pinoy it is the noon time show for them and regardless who the host was I was not looking what is superficial I was more on the essence of the show and helping less fortunate and seniors are the show top priority and hearing different stories make us more thankful of what life we had. What makes me teary eye on that show is when they went abroad and in particular show there is one kababayan who was not fortunate enough to make a living on that place but what happened next many filipino helped her and gave her financial assistance and even visa assistance to made her way home to pinas. It is the sincere idea of helping makes wowowee reach out to more pinoys and no wonder it will reign number 1 in every heart of masang pinoy.

First of all congratulations on this thread, I like the idea of a homegrown discussion appearing on mylot. Specially if it comes from someone from my referral, hehehe. I am a solid fan of eat bulaga before. But after living in with my partner which is a solid channel two fan, I was not able to view EB anymore. But I don't regret it since Wowowee is really very entertaining not to mention that it has more prizes than EB and Willy I could say is doing his best in hosting but likewise in his married life.

Yes and no. Any GMA Network show, when pitted against a rival ABS-CBN show, has a huge disadvantage in terms of overseas accessibility. ABS-CBN's The Filipino Channel (TFC) has a wider reach than GMA, so in that regard, yes, Wowowee has surpassed Eat Bulaga in terms of viewing. Locally, however, I'd have to say no: Eat Bulaga still rules the air. Wowowee is the product of several trials and errors in ABS-CBN's attempts to match Eat Bulaga (I've read that EB's closest rival was GMA's Salo-Salo Together back when EB was still on ABS-CBN), and it has gone leaps and bounds to improve upon its predecessors, but majority of the Filipinos still recognize the pop institution that is Eat Bulaga as their number one noontime TV destination.
