ABS-CBN SHOWTIME BACK ON AIR



ABS-CBN's popular morning show "Showtime" is set to be back on air on Tuesday.

In a phone interview with abs-cbnNEWS.com, Mr. Bong Osorio, head of ABS-CBN Corporate Communications, confirmed that the network got hold of a temporary restraining order (TRO) from the Court of Appeals allowing the resumption of "Showtime" on January 19.

"Bukas na po (babalik ang 'Showtime').  May TRO effective for 60 days. The preventive suspension order against the program has been lifted," Osorio said.
"Showtime" was given a 20-day preventive suspension by the Movie & Television Review & Classification Board (MTRCB) due to controversial remarks made by actress Rosanna Roces against teachers.

ABS-CBN's official statement on the TRO says:

"Natanggap ng mga abogado ng ABS-CBN ngayong umaga ang resolusyon ng Court of Appeals dated January 15, 2010 na nagsasaad sa huling bahagi nito and we quote, "For reasons afore-stated, and as prayed for by petitioner, let a TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER be issued, as it is hereby issued, effective sixty (60) days from notice hereof, enjoining respondent MTRCB, including any and all persons acting in their behalf and under their command and authority, from continuing to enforce the Preventive Suspension Order dated January 11, 2010 issued against petitioner, pending the resolution of the instant petition." Ang ibig sabihin nito mapapanood na muli ang SHOWTIME sa dati pa ring oras simula bukas, January 19, 2010."

"Showtime" hosts Jugs Jugueta, Teddy Corpuz, Kim Atienza, Anne Curtis, Vhong Navarro, and resident judge Vice Ganda became emotional and cried after they announced the news on Monday that the country's hit talent show "Showtime" will be back.
The announcement was made during the latter part of "Magpasikat," a talent show that temporarily replaced "Showtime."
