      Showtime is really one of TFC The Filipino Channel best TV programs. It is fun and entertaining. Amazing Filipino talents throughout the show. We sometimes watch it over and over on our TFC box in Canada. TFC box allows us to watch the Showtime anytime we want and we can fast forward, rewind and replay. No commercials too so overall it saves us lots of time and very convenient so it easy to watch Showtime, Magandang Gabi, Vice, ASAP, other great TFC teleseryes shows as many times as we want. Love all TFC shows!

      Agree with Victor, this new Showtime format is boring. They should have changed the name because this isn't the same Showtime we know and have grown to love.

      The new SHOWTIME format can be described with one word.

      Sorry to say that. The old format was fine and MY GIRL was a real hit.

      I do not think your showtime is entertaining at all what a waste of 3 hrs watching non-sense entertainment and singers who cant even deliver what a joke!! it is totally waste of money paying for TFC. Your host Anne Curtis she is a big laughing joke to this 3rd world country! I will not watch your program...

      I love showtime but it would be really cool if tfc would show the entire show. The show today was cut and didn't even show if the contestant won the game or not. Seriously? What the heck!

      Well, I'm not so enthuse about this show. I enjoyed the previous show that had been replaced by Showtime. Please refrain from making fun of people, putting people down, making fun of skinny people, fat people, or even those that doesn't seem to look as good as everyone else. What I have notice many of this talk show people like Vice Ganda, Bong Navarro, Joseph Estrada, Pokwang... makes fun of people, just to be funny. let me tell you, it is not funny. It makes me feel very angry to hear how you all put people down to be funny. At the cost of someones self steem, you all try to be funny but you are not funny.

      SHOWTIME IS A FUN SHOW. HURRAY TO ALL THE CAST YOU MAKE ME HAPPY. ANN CURTIS CHANCE AND DOWN TO EARTH ATTITUDE IS A GOOD SAMPLE TO ALL THE YOUNG ONES TO FOLLOW. IT'S A SHOW TO ALL YOUNG, KIDS AND ADULT AS LONG AS YOU ARE GAME AND HAVE TALENT YOU WILL GET A REWARD.SHOWING THE BEAUTIFUL SPOT IN THE DIFFERENT PLACES IN THE PHILIPPINES WILL ATTRACT PEOPLE TO VISIT OUR COUNTRY.IT WILL BOOST OUR TOURISM INDUSTRY. SINGING BEE WITH ANN AS AN EMCEE IS EXCITING AND FUN.
