Here is the full statement:
There is no truth to rumors that “It’s Showtime” will be replaced. ABS-CBN is neither replacing “It’s Showtime” with another program nor moving it back to its earlier timeslot.
In fact, “It’s Showtime” today, April 30 kicked-off the launch of its new segments starting with the multi-talent showdown among Filipino families following the inter-town grand finals last Saturday, April 28.
The viewing public can look forward to the launch of new entertainment segments in the coming days as ABS-CBN continues on its mission to bring fun and hope to the Filipinos here and in TFC markets worldwide.
