It’s More Fun with Philip TV Show

Philip Abadicio Adds More Fun to Sunday Night TV

If you are like me who have enough of what’s airing on television these days, fret no more. There’s a new TV show that will surely add fun to your Sunday night viewing.

TV5’s news channel, Aksyon TV, adds color to your viewing experience with its all-new  lifestyle magazine and talk show called “It’s More fun with Philip.” The show is hosted by media meister Philip K. Abadicio.  Airing every Sunday from 10 to 10:30 pm, the show tackles the latest lifestyle news—be it dining, travel, fashion, well being, fitness, beauty, arts and anything and everything that makes you feel good about life.

The “more fun” element is injected into every segment with exciting challenges, treatments, and interviews. This 30-minute show is poised to be funny, exhaustive, and honest as Philip engages the audience in an informative and entertaining way with his freshest gimmicks weekly. “I wanted our lifestyle tv show to be appreciated and accessible to people from all walks of life, a show that informs but entertains at the same time,” shares Philip.

You’ll never know what’s coming with It’s More Fun with Philip because each episode features a mix of different segments. Bentang Bago showcases the hippest trends, newest dining options, chill spots, fitness forays, and other fab finds in the metro that will keep you on-the-know of what’s hot and not. Bentang Bago also gets more interactive as Philip gives the viewers a chance to sample the featured items by simply tweeting or sharing their comments on social media.

Napasubo Ka! is a segment where “guinea pigs” (people from different walks of life) personally tries the featured products or services while Ang Hamon poses a daring challenge to Philip—may it be doing odd jobs or finishing a specific task. Galaw-galaw gets Philip or his guest hosts moving as they take a shot on physically challenging sports or activities. And towards the end of every episode, Philip’s guest co-host is subjected into a spill-all interview, which shall be done under the blanket.

This interview segment is called Kwentuhang Kumot and it banks on the motto: Iba ang kwentuhan sa loob ng kumot. Even the show’s bumper segments give its own snappy dose of fun. I Saw the Sign features the funny and interesting things that we see around us—may it be signage, billboards, or even cloud formations. Whatchathink? gets the crew on the streets to ask passersby on their thoughts about trivial questions. Ano Kaya Kung… features short and snappy challenges that we usually think about but never tried.  And to get to know the latest on the net, Weblog shall discuss the news bits featured in The headlines shall be reported by web enthusiast, Fred da Web.

The TV show is unique because it’s a lifestyle news talk show but with a comic/ reality twist. It is created for the audience to try what are being featured. Philip adds, “we give away food that we recommend from the restaurants we feature, spa and salon treatments,
frocks and froufrou from designers, gift cheques for stays at recommended hotels and resorts, consumer products and services, and a whole lot more via, twitter and facebook.”
