Ka-Shake TV5 is Giving the Kapamilya and Kapuso TV Networks a Strong Competition

With telecom magnate Manny V. Pangilinan at the helm, TV5 is determined to give ruling networks ABS-CBN and GMA-7 a good strong competition. The station is on a recruitment mode, luring talents from the top two networks. First, Paolo Bediones, from GMA-7, and now according to source, might be Willie Revillame's turn. An executive position is also being offered to Roselle Monteverde, daughter of Regal Films' Mother Lily Monteverde.I. Also being eyed is a popular ABS-CBN showbiz field reporter. The baits: better pay, better future and better working conditions.

From way back, even during the time of Edward Tan and then Tonyboy Cojuangco, TV5 has been coming up with innovative shows later reinvented by other channels. GMA�s top-rating gag show Bubble Gang started as Tropang Trumpo on TV5 (then known as ABC 5), and so did Eezy Dancing that inspired ABS-CBN to put up Keep on Dancing (hosted by Dayanara Torres who was later replaced by Charlene Gonzalez) and is back on TV5 as Shall We Dance? hosted by Lucy Torres.

TV5�s Talentadong Pinoy, hosted by Ryan Agoncillo, seems to have given the two top networks an idea to come up with their own versions, Showtime (ABS-CBN) and It�s Showwwtime (GMA). Even Pinoy Records, also on GMA hosted by Chris Tiu and Manny Pacquiao, has adapted the Talentadong Pinoy format.
