Talk show with Edu?

Talk show with Edu?

The talk format is getting to be an endangered format on Philippine free-to-air TV. It has sought refuge in cable TV channels, like ANC, which is hosting LSS: The Martin Nievera Showat 10:30 p.m. on Monday.

Nievera has been dying to get back on camera to show off his talk show hosting skills, and he’s happy that ANC, the ABS-CBN news channel, has given him another chance. 

I’ve seen some episodes of the show and still Nievera owns the screen, allowing only his guests to steal it once in a while.

But, what I am looking forward to watching on TV, whether free-to-air station or cable channels another talk show hosted perhaps by Edu Manzano. I remember in the late 1980s when he hosted Not So Late Night With Edu  on ABS-CBN. It was one of the funniest talk shows (local) I’ve seen in years, and I felt bad when in 1988 it was axed to give way to Tagalog shows.

Edu’s with and humor are nonpareil, and he always had fresh insights on issues that had the loudest buzz, especially, among members of the café society.

I don’t know if ANC, the ABS-CBN channel has ever thought of creating a talk format with Manzano, he is after all in the Kapamilya network now playing Vice President Lucas Cabrera in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.

Will I and Edu’s fans ever see him again in a talk show?
