“It’s Showtime” is making a big comeback to give Filipinos good vibes and relief and help them recover from the impact of the pandemic through livelihood opportunities as it returns to TV on Kapamilya Channel and Jeepney TV starting this Saturday (June 13).
Through “It’s Showtime’s” new segments, hosts Vhong Navarro, Jhong Hilario, Karylle, Amy Perez, Jugs Jugueta, Teddy Corpuz, Ryan Bang, and Vice Ganda will reach out to different families and barangays to foster unity and help them improve their lives.
The highly anticipated segments include “Super Fiestars,” which will rally the superstars of different local barangays to showcase their talents, provide entertainment to viewers, and contribute to their community’s recovery efforts.
Filipinos will also be given a chance to apply for a job live on the show via “1Ted: Now Hiring,” where two ‘applicandidates’ will go face-to-face each day for a job opportunity. After three rounds, the employer decides which one of them is the winner and will go home with the cash prize.
In the game segment called “Pamilyanaryo,” the show will pay tribute and offer rewards to families nominated by different barangays to have done great contributions to the community. In each episode, two members per family will join the live show, and one family gets to move on to the jackpot round with a chance to win P1 million.
The vocal showdowns at noontime will also resume in “Tawag ng Tanghalan: Tapatan ng Barangay.” In this new edition, two amateur singers representing two barangays will battle it out in two rounds to become the daily champion and compete in the weekly finals.
