The Buzz goes off air, scared of Willie's new show?

'The Buzz' vs Willie Revillame's new show 'Wowowin' every Sunday isn't gonna happen (yet), now that "The Buzz", hosted by Kris Aquino, Toni Gonzaga & Boy Abunda, has already went off air.

Easter could mean rebirth, but "The Buzz" chose to air its farewell episode yesterday, April 5, which was an Easter Sunday, after almost 16 years of being part of the Filipinos' Sunday viewing habit.

The Buzz has been one of my fave Sunday shows on ABS-CBN, along with ASAP and GGV as well as any reality shows that aired on this day, such as Pinoy Big Brother, The Voice Philippines and the one that's still airing, You're Face Sounds Familiar. My Sunday will never be the same, now that The Buzz will no longer air starting this Sunday (but only temporary).

Over the weekend, ABS-CBN made this surprise announcement that The Buzz will take a break after more than 15 years of being on air. It will definitely be back, but there was no mention of its comeback date. Is it after 3 months? After Toni Gonzaga's June wedding perhaps?

The Buzz unexpected farewell led people to believe that the
showbiz-oriented show is scared of or avoiding a time slot battle against Willie Revillame's new variety show WOWOWIN which will premiere in the rival
network GMA 7 this April 26, reportedly in the same timeslot as The Buzz (supposedly).

In business, I think it's not being scared, but it's a strategy, to be better prepared for the new competition. ABS-CBN probably might study first how 'Wowowin' is gonna shake off our Sunday viewing habit.

In the meantime, Kapamilya Blockbusters is most probably the one taking over The Buzz timeslot and clash against that of Willie Revillame's new show. -
