MANILA, Philippines - TV5 Entertainment and Creative Services head Perci Intalan finds it flattering that the station’s strategic approach to the competition is said to be causing a shakeup in the news programs of two rival networks, ABS-CBN. TV5 switching to be a No. 1 Kapatid Network.

What we said about changing the TV audience’s viewing habits is finally coming true, Intalan told the Inquirer on Friday.

TV5’also known as the Kapatid network has a new set of game show, the all-new Wil Time Bigtime, which airs with the new timeslot at 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on weekdays and 5:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. on Saturdays.

TV5’s longest-running flagship newscast, Aksyon, airs with the new timeslot at 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. It competes head-on with TV Patrol and 24 Oras of ABS-CBN and GMA 7, respectively.

Marissa Flores, senior vice president for news and public affairs of TV5’s other rival, GMA 7, commented: Our observation is that it is largely the audience of TV Patrol that Aksyon and Wil Time Bigtime are eating into. She pointed out that 24 Oras remains ahead in Mega Manila ratings.

News5 recently announced Paolo Bediones return to co-anchors of Aksyon last October 3, 2011.

Paolo Bediones were returned as co-anchor for Aksyon and Cheryl Cosim and Erwin Tulfo were retained as anchor for Aksyon.

Meantime, starting Sunday, TV5’s showbiz program Paparazzi Showbiz Exposed was moved to the 4 p.m. time slot in direct competition with ABS-CBN’s The Buzz and GMA 7’s Showbiz Central.
