Philippine Idol aired its first episode last Sunday 30 July 2006 to the delight of Filipino televiewers. I guess they really waited for the show to air since the announcement that a Philippine franchise would appear on ABC5. I wasn’t one of them since I’m not really a fan of American Idol or any talent search program (maybe except for Starcircle Quest 1). However, as a person with no cable tv, having new shows on tv excite me since it could provide me a much needed break from the monotony of local tv viewing. Philippine Idol did it for me and I guess I’ll be a regular viewer. I would think lots of people would do the same thing and be regular viewers of this young but amazing tv program.
