No wonder we don’t have a TV Guide
For the last few weeks, I’ve been trying to catch the GMA 7 show “Pinoy Abroad.” The problem is finding out what time it’s on. Sounds like an easy enough problem but I’m afraid finding out the timeslot of a show on a local channel these days is anything but easy.
Whenever I see an advert for “Pinoy Abroad” during a commercial break I wait for them to tell me the time it’s on but instead they just say, “Pagkatapos ng ‘Saksi’ (After ‘Saksi’).” Then for a nanosecond you can see the lineup of evening shows. No time, just the name of the shows. So it’s after “Saksi,” and “Saksi” is after “Nuts Entertainment,” and that’s after “Sassy Girl Chun Yang,” which is after “Sugo,” and the list goes on until it hits “Extra Challenge.” Now the question is: what time does “Extra Challenge” start?
This is so frustrating.
I just checked the website and it says “Pinoy Abroad” is on at 11:55. You’d think that by stating that the show is on at 11:55, that GMA keeps to their schedule. But it’s almost 10:20 and “Sassy Girl” has just begun. The website says that “Nuts Entertainment,” the show after “Sassy Girl,” is on at 9:55. Sheesh. No wonder they don’t announce the timeslots on TV. That would be false advertising since none of the shows begin and end the same time every single day.
At this rate, “Pinoy Abroad” will air way past midnight.
