TV5 host KC Montero reacts to 'joining forces' of 'It's Showtime', 'Lunch Out Loud'

KC Montero is very much welcome to the idea of two competing networks joining forces in this season of change.

In a report by ABS-CBN News published yesterday, July 7, the "Lunch Out Loud" host shared his two cents over the recent announcement that the ABS-CBN noontime show "It's Showtime" will air "back-to-back" with the TV5 variety show that he's part of.

“It’s a sign of the times. We just have to adapt with the political environment that’s been thrust upon us," he told ABS-CBN News.

“Why not put together more people for more ideas and better creations, sama-sama!” he added.

TV5 newscast “Frontline Pilipinas” first reported about the joining forces of the two noontime shows last July 6, to bring “back-to-back” entertainment for all the viewers.

“Ang dating magkatapat, ngayo’y magkapatid na," MJ Farfori said in her report.

ABS-CBN, however, has yet to release an official statement, as of writing.

KC, who previously starred in “FPJ’s ang Probinsyano,” currently hosts “Lunch Out Loud” alongside Billy Crawford, Bayani Agbayani, Alex Gonzaga, and other artists.

Meanwhile, "It's Showtime" is hosted by Vice Ganda, Anne Curtis, Vhong Navarro, Ogie Alcasid, Karylle, Jhong Hilario, Kim Chiu, Amy Perez, Jugs Jugueta, Teddy Corpuz, Ryan Bang, Jackie Gonzaga, and Ion Perez.

Prior to the announcement, several Kapamilya shows have already been airing on TV5 in addition to ABS-CBN platforms, including "ASAP Natin 'To", "FPJ: Da King", "Idol Philippines", and the entire “Primetime Bida” teleserye block.
