MANILA - The launch of ABS-CBN's newest reality dance competition "Dance Kids" will cause some changes in the Kapamilya network's weekend programming.
For one, "Celebrity Playtime," which has celebrities competing in various parlor games, will now air at 10:30 p.m., after "Your Face Sounds Familiar." It previously occupied the 6:15 p.m. Saturday timeslot.
The change also meant that Luis Manzano, the host of "Kapamilya Deal or No Deal," will replace Billy Crawford as the host of the program.
In a statement released on Tuesday, ABS-CBN explained why the change had to be made.
It read: "Following these programming changes, ABS-CBN and Billy Crawford's management ALV Talent Circuit Inc. have decided for Billy to relinquish his hosting job in 'Celebrity Playtime' to Luis Manzano."
"Billy would love to continue hosting the show but unfortunately, he can't be seen in two consecutively airing programs."
"ABS-CBN thanks Billy for his dedication to 'Celebrity Playtime.' He remains as one of the most respected hosts of the network, and his fans can still watch him in 'Your Face Sounds Familiar' on weekends and 'It's Showtime' from Mondays to Saturdays."
Hosted by Alex Gonzaga and Robi Domingo, "Dance Kids" will air every Saturday at 6:15 p.m. and Sundays at 6 p.m. It will also feature Vhong Navarro, Georcelle Dapat-Sy, and Andy Alviz as judges.
