Eat Bulaga! became the first Philippine variety show to be franchised by another country when Indonesia's SCTV network adapted a version of the show entitled as Eat Bulaga!

HistoryEdit

On March 9, 2020, APT Studios we're suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. [2]

SegmentsEdit

The Broadway Boys (also known as ON3) is a group of young singers who perform every Saturday on the show.[3] The group includes Joshua Torino, Joshua Lumbao, Benedict Aboyme, and the ultimate Champion, Francis Aglabtin. They are the finalists and winner of the Eat Bulaga! contest in 2017 "Lola's Playlist" which is also part of Kalyeserye. They were named "Broadway Boys" because of the location of the studio where they first sang together called Broadway Centrum.
