Vice Ganda Talks about "Showtime's" Rivalry with "Diz Iz It"


vice-gandaVice Ganda, judge of the top-rating “Showtime” is being confronted by so many intrigues and gossips as he is also steadily rising up on his showbiz career.

Most recently, he is being intrigued with his comments about their show’s rival program on GMA7 “Diz Iz It”; that some people who have heard his comments were offended.

GMA7 came up with its own talent show entitled “Diz Iz It” and placed it on the same time slot with ABS-CBN’s “Showtime”. Many of these who have watched the new show pitted against that of ABS said that it is really a copied program just to rival the popularity of “Showtime” and maybe gain back a big chunk of viewership.

To this issue Vice Ganda said:

…Nung um-absent ako sa Showtime, mayroon na akong chance na mapanood sila, tiningnan ko sa ‘Net, wala, e, walang file, walang nag-upload. So, nagre-rely na lang ako sa mga hearsays, sa mga nakapanood, sa mga nagkuwento. Base sa mga kuwento nila, sa mga napanood nila, wala naman palang dahilan para ma-offend kami. Unang-una, wala akong binaggit na Diz Is It, wala akong tinukoy na Kapuso o GMA 7. Wala akong tinukoy na ganun. Gaya ng sinabi ko, hindi ko sila napanood. Ang sinabi lang sa akin, ginaya nga raw yung konspeto, tapos pareho pa ng timeslot, talagang tinapat.

Vice said that at first he was very nervous with the news of having a program that will rival theirs on the same time slot.  But with what he heard from friends comparing the two show, he said further that he is just so flattered that if indeed “Showtime” was copied, it only thus meant that their show is really good.

But also left at the same some words full of meaning:

Kaya lang, kung ang panggagaya sa iyo ay nakaka-offend, parang binababoy naman kami, hindi mo kami binibigyan ng tribute kundi binababoy mo kami.

Do you think that what Vice Ganda said about “Showtime” being copied was indeed offending?  Between “Showtime” and “Diz Iz It”, which is the better show?
