Party Pilipinas will be axed after next Sunday's episode entitled Take A Bow. Mainstay Ogie Alcasid announced in the last segment of their episode today.Ogie Alcasid, with the whole cast of Party Pilipinas on stage with him, said that today was the last episode of Team A, Mark Reyes and crew, and next Sunday would be Team B's last episode, Rico Gutierrez and his crew.
In the past days, fans have been talking about this after a column in a newspaper came out that GMA Network will cancel three shows from their Sunday afternoon slot. The two other shows that the article talked about were HOT TV, axed already, and Teen Gen-- the comeback of TGIS.
What's next for GMA Sunday noontime?
Our guess, GMA Network Entertainment group is yet again reformatting it to get rid of unnecessary artists. Our guess, the network will highlight the younger generation of divas and famous singers with the likes of Christian Bautista and Julie Anne San Jose to be the banner bearer of the new show. The problem with Party Pilipinas is that it still lives in the shadow of SOP which they say "pinaglumaan."
Since the veterans have lost their charisma over a fresher audience, the network may have decided to offer a fresher flavor, a more relevant one at that.
Here's one hoping that there will still be a Sunday competition after it gets axed. ASAP is excellent but the network has to challenge it to up the quality of Sunday viewing.
Final word: Party Pilipinas kudos for revolutionizing the quality of production numbers as far as Team B is concerned.
