On Saturday, a record-breaking 600 thousand posts flooded Twitter with hash tag #AlDubWeBelongTogether. On the same day, Eat Bulaga registered a 300 percent increase in its TV viewership.

Ratings data from AGB Nielsen say that the GMA Network show was the most watched program on Aug. 9, which was also its premiere telecast. Its rival show, ASAP, which paid tribute to Sharon Cuneta, garnered 11.5 percent ratings or just half of what Sunday PINASaya registered on the same day.

To run, or not to run – that is the question. Vilma Santos’s son is torn between his showbiz career and his political dreams. He said he still has until October to decide. We are sure he has a valid or even a genuine reason if he chooses to be in the political arena. But please leave showbiz completely. People hardly respect celebrities who can’t identify whether they are politicos or showbiz clowns.
