‘Lunch Out Loud’ tramples ‘It’s Showtime’

Lunch Out Loud (LOL) is ahead of the game when it comes to viewership and ratings, even against It’s Showtime, which has been on air for almost a decade. 

The cast of TV5’s noontime variety show ‘Lunch Out Loud.’
LOL, launched on October 2020, is hosted by Billy Crawford, Alex Gonzaga,  Bayani Agbayani, KC Montero, Ariel Rivera, Wacky Kiray, and K Brosas. Their energy, chemistry and banter are on point: just the perfect combination to get viewers hooked on the noontime show.

Despite being new on the scene, TV5’s LOL has surpassed long-running noontime shows in the Philippines. From December 2020 to March 2021, LOL took the #1 spot on ratings, getting ahead of It’s  Showtime, which airs on A2Z. In January, LOL garnered 816K Average Minute Ratings (AMR)--the highest on record for LOL. In comparison, It’s Showtime garnered 559K AMR in the same month. 

LOL showcases relatable segments; from H.O.P.E, which gives hope to couples that have broken up; to the ‹funtastic’ singing competition KanTrabaho; to the colorful lipsync contest, Drag Queendom. 

Viewers and contestants alike look forward to the ginormous cash prizes given out in Pera Usog. The wish-granting segment, Sagot Mo, Sagot Ko with Billy Crawford is a hit among the LOL-kada and has helped many people out through their financial troubles. Re-scan your digital boxes to  enjoy the best viewing experience for LOL and the other new shows on the Kapatid Network
