The week-long celebration and talent battle consistently beat its rival program, GMA’s “Eat Bulaga” with a national TV rating of 14.3% vs 13.2% (Oct 21); 15.9% vs 13.2% (Oct 22); 16% vs 13% (Oct 23); 18.5% vs 12.8% (Oct 24); and 18.2% vs 13.3% (Oct 25).
“It’s Showtime” even pulled away in the ratings game on Saturday (Oct 26) when the team of Karylle, Jugs Jugueta, and Teddy Corpuz was declared the Magpasikat champion. That day, “It’s Showtime” registered a national TV rating of 19.6% against “Eat Bulaga,” which only got 12.1%.
The trio won P200,000 for their chosen charity for their much talked-about and impressive performance in which they sang the “It’s Showtime” theme song in reverse.
Coming in second place was the team of Vice Ganda and Kuya Kim Atienza, who bagged P150,000, and in third place the team of Billy Crawford, Vhong Navarro, and Coleen Garcia, who received P100,000 for their chosen charity.
The Anne Curtis-Jhong Hilario and Ryan Bang-Eruption Tai tandems, meanwhile, received consolation prizes.
