ABS-CBN Shenanigans

Do you have anything to share what are the shenanigans surrounding ABS-CBN? Well, I’m not damaging ABS-CBN’s reputation NOR I should say that it is the worst zaibatsu ever in the Philippines.

Well, here’s the question: What are the shenanigans surrounding ABS-CBN that you know/are familiar with?

  1. Sabihin na lang natin na magaling magpasikat ng talent ang ABS-CBN, and all of the things ABS-CBN is willing to spend for improvement of their shows na ipinagyayabang ng mga kapamilya fans, but they still suck at news department. I don’t need to explain the casting couch system in ABS-CBN since, if you check Celebrity Urban Legends in PEX? Hmmm…. Alam na.

    • True! Also, mababaw ang mga news articles ng TV Patrol at saka Rated K, plus with matching bias pa. Mas gusto ko pa manood ng Imbestigador, Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho.

      Onga, let’s make this blog post a discussion thread haha. Well, yes, there are more things for me to share:

      Once you enter ABS-CBN premises, nega vibes talaga ang mararamdaman mo mainly because crab mentality and prima donna people are rampant. If the boss knows you’re better than him (or lezzay, you got skill), he won’t acknowledge you but rather pull you down. Ganyan kalala ang crab mentality sa ABS-CBN, compared to DZRH (friendlier people, positive vibes).

        If you are going to tell my mom about that, she will say things that would look like she is defending ABS-CBN, kasi laging nanonood sa ABS-CBN ‘yun eh and most of the dramas she is watching is on ABS-CBN. How did you found out abut the crab mentality and prima donna atmosphere of ABS-CBN? Do you have any friends, relatives or mere acquaintances working there? Are there any threads in, let’s say, PEx, that gives you details besides the casting couch crap? Does crab mentality and prima donna stuff apply to newscasters only, or also to artistas as well?

        True story, friend! Musta naman ang XXX ngayon na pilit tapatan ang Imbestigador? Existent pa ba sa Dos? Malamang hindi.
        Oh wait! Kaka-check ko lang ng Wikipedia, heto ang nasagap ko about the two shows:
        > XXX: Exklusibong, Explosibong, Exposé = March 4, 2006 – February 18, 2013
        > Imbestigador = August 2, 2000 – present
        How pathetic! Ang show ng Dos na supposedly magpapataob sa Imbestigador, multi-awarded kuno, (waaah? Kwento nila sa pagong!) pero eventually, magbababu lang naman din, and seriously, the excuse “the network is just trying to provide fresh concept and shows to the viewers” is too lame to be taken. If your TV show is constantly being aired for a long time like no other, that shows the stability of your fans/viewers’ support to your show, your credibility, creativity, and genuinity.
        Wish Ko Lang is another example of a show that never ends to touch the hearts of viewers in any means possible. Ilan na ba ang gumayang ABS-CBN show diyan, pero in just a few months or few years…. BABUSH!
        Rated K is okay, just that Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho and Jessica Soho herself is far more respectable than Korina Sanchez. ‘Yun nga lang, may nakwento ang “bf” ko na may friend na nag-intern for Jessica Soho, and suplada at mejo “patayan”, “strikto” si Jessica Soho. Somewhat understandable, para hindi mo ma-diss-diss. But I like her way better than Korina. Mas malala pa si Korina, na-blind item pa nga si Korina na kapag hindi mahanap ang spraynet or mga anik-anik, nananaob iyan ng table. Isa pang blind item/article na isinulat sa kanya, sumigaw siya ng “Fuck You” sa airport. Siyempre, masasabing dubious ang article na iyan kasi, ang social media around 2004-2008, hindi tulad nitong age ng Facebook, Twitter, Instagram at mga Smartphones.
        Sa ugali ni Korina, hindi na ako magtataka kung bakit binangasan siya ni RG Cruz. Mas nagpalala pa sa karakas niya, kung paano tirahin ni Koring si RG Cruz.
        Hangarin ba naman ang ulo ni RG Cruz?!?!?!?
        Eneyen?!?!?! Mamamatay-tao ang peg?
        Hindi na ako magtataka kung bakit nagkaroon ng issue si Koring regarding sa pambubugbog ng katulong. I don’t think Bernadita Inocensio is bipolar/schizophrenic enough to throw and beat herself literally to make Korina Sanchez lookin’ sadistically evil.

    My dad used to work there in ABS-CBN, and when we were not yet living in QC, yes, pumupunta pa kami doon dati, and my mom said that ABS-CBN has a negative atmosphere once you enter the premises. And yes, the casting couch thing–it was written in the RY Conspiracy article in my blog about Rico Yan, and I included casting couch in ABS-CBN that came from PEX–and it is confirmed that AA is doing casting couch nga, pati si FP naisulat pa nga niya ‘yun eh. And my pal said that Toni Gonzaga is undergoing the casting couch raw, he got this account from his buddy.

    Crab mentality and prima donna attitude… well, I cannot comment on the artistas and the usual newscasters, but even ordinary employees and employers ‘ata are snobbish raw. Pero ang nagpa-practice ng ganung attitude ay mostly the bossings of Dos.

    Rated K is okay, just that Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho and Jessica Soho herself is far more respectable than Korina Sanchez. ‘Yun nga lang, may nakwento ang “bf” ko na may friend na nag-intern for Jessica Soho, and suplada at mejo “patayan”, “strikto” si Jessica Soho. Somewhat understandable, para hindi mo ma-diss-diss. But I like her way better than Korina.

    Now I know why Jessica Soho reacted towards Vice Ganda’s joke about rape. Naiintindihan ko naman kung strikta si Jessica Soho, kasi at least she’s imposing discipline to the interns, lalo’t na’t she wants them to follow her example. Samantalang si Korina Sanchez, well, you got that right! There’s one account that she dissed a scriptwriter and threw bad words, saying, “Putang Ina ka!” That was one of my dad’s employees’ first-hand accounts. Hindi raw talaga approachable si Korina unless she happens to be a friend of someone you know personally, or a relative.

    Mas malala pa si Korina, na-blind item pa nga si Korina na kapag hindi mahanap ang spraynet or mga anik-anik, nananaob iyan ng table. Isa pang blind item/article na isinulat sa kanya, sumigaw siya ng “Fuck You” sa airport.

    Korina Sanchez for me, even though I like her in some way, well… actually may good side naman siya, but she rarely shows it. And THAT IS CORRECT… she’s one of the people in ABS-CBN with a prima donna attitude, way worse than Maricel Soriano (well, I believe she just used drugs kaya siya nagka-ganyan ganyan). Everyone preferred Kris Aquino because at least kahit dubious at hindi likeable ang ugali ni Tetay, she is more civil and less sadistic–but Krizzy’s diva attitude is somehow true, because I saw her in person, mukha nga siyang snob talaga. Pero yes, nothing beats Tita Koring’s attitude–talagang dubious unlike Jessica Soho na strict with substance, just like my professors who teach with substance.

    No wonder, no guy will ever go for her, but I was wondering with her marriage with Mar Roxas. Mar seemed nice and friendly, but why in the world did he choose Tita Koring rather than someone else… and even publicized the marriage? There are two things: Ayaw ni Tita Koring maging old maid… OR Mar married her for campaign reasons.

    Imbestigador and Wish Ko Lang are two shows that never fail to amaze the audience–at least, the news department of GMA is more analytical and not simply a mere magnifier of all things. I don’t think XXX should be Imbestigador’s counterpart. Unique ang Imbestigador in a way na they have PROOF and EVIDENCE rather than just mere facts. Also, with regards to Bistado, I still do not know whether it will par Imbestigador.

    Walang genuinity ang mga non-entertainment shows sa ABS-CBN. Having fresh concepts is just something that should be for NEWER and MORE UNIQUE shows rather than the same thing all over and over again.

    However, that does not only apply to non-entertainment shows. Actually, comparing Temptation of Wife vs. Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig is like comparing the audiences’ remarks about the shows.

    Temptation of Wife – The story ended gracefully despite the same concept of bida-kontrabida conflicts and a lot of loveteams, but at least, this show didn’t just show loveteams–it shows Marian’s character as a successful err… makeup artist/fashion designer (which one is true? haha) and Glaiza de Castro enters the scene as kontrabida. YES, I really liked this show not simply because of Marian but because of her more genuine improvement in acting. Hindi pa-cute, just simply more natural.

    Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig – Well, most Kapamilyas watch this because they like the Rafael Rossell-Denise Laurel loveteam. Obviously, AA’s acting is still stagnant, wala talaga gaanong improvement (I think she won an award because of casting couch! Hak Hak Hak!), puro na lang pa-cute and she’s just showing off her body and assets, period! Also, the story sucks ass, literally!

  3. For me, ABS-CBN is an oligarch network. Nilalaglag at sinisiraan ang mga Marcoses habang pinupuri ang mga Yellow Oligarchs! BOO!

    • Hahahah! Manood na lang tayo ng GMA or TV5.

      Hahaha, ang kinaganda ng TV5 over dos and siyete is their reception quality.
