Today in Billboard Hot 100 History – September 27

As far as you have heard, Brigada News FM National recapped the #1 hits of Billboard Hot 100 throughout its history on the segment “Powercells Flashback #1 Song” during the program “Brigada Balita Nationwide sa Umaga.” Listen to that program every Mondays-Saturdays, 7:00-7:15am on Brigada News FM stations nationwide. As for the Sunday edition, I will post the hits that were #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 era.

We’ll take you back to 1975. The #1 song on Billboard Hot 100 on that day was “I’m Sorry”/”Calypso” by John Denver.

“I’m Sorry” was John Denver’s final number one pop hit released throughout his career, while “Calypso” was written as a tribute to Jacques-Yves Costeau and his research ship Calypso. Both tracks lasted one week on the top of Billboard Hot 100 charts.

We’ll also take you back to 2008. The #1 song on Billboard Hot 100 on that day was “So What” by P!nk.

“So What” is a song recorded by Pink for her fifth studio album “Funhouse.” It was written by Pink, Max Martin, and Shellback, and produced by Martin. The lyrics of that song was based on Pink’s separation from motocross racer Carey Hart, which occurred six months before the song’s release. It became Pink’s highest selling single in the United States, with sales of over four million downloads. It lasted one week on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

That’s it for now. I will post Today in Billboard Hot 100 History every Sunday and it will be my new tradition on this blog. For the current Billboard Hot 100 charts, go to this blog. Special thanks to Billboard for Today in Billboard Hot 100 History.

Billboard Hot 100 – October 3, 2015


Capitalizing on AlDub’s success, GMA is now trying to air a rerun of Alden Richards’ old historical drama Illustrado, which was produced by GMA News (credits: GMA Network)

Call it desperate.

Capitalizing on the recent success of the accidental love duo AlDub (Alden Richards and Yaya Dub), the so-called #1 News Channel on Free TV will air another teleserye rerun after Amaya. Enter Illustrado.

This historical drama series failed to impress on its initial run on GMA as more viewers are tuned in to its rival Two Wives. Even the mature scenes on Two Wives were way more interesting to viewers and netizens alike, unlike the historical value of Illustrado. It was produced by GMA News and Public Affairs as its first venture on GMA Telebabad.

GMA hasn’t moved on from Alden’s past blunders, hence with AlDub getting more popular as of late, here we are with this rerun.

Let’s see if the rerun of this historical series will make an impact on a struggling News TV, especially on GMA’s loyal viewers and Alden’s new fans.

This rerun will start this Monday, September 21, 3:00pm on GMA News TV.


AlDub Hype Gone Worse

AlDub is becoming more and more popular right now, especially with the new commercials featuring the duo: McDonald’s and Talk ‘N Text.

But the hype is gone worse.

GMA News is way too focused on AlDub nowadays, with Kalyeserye summaries part of news items of all GMA newscasts, as well as GMA News TV’s newscasts.

And it doesn’t help GMA at all. Their other talents are now in limbo once AlDub is now in spotlight. And to make matters worse, AlDub is already overexposed at the expense of GMA’s own talents, thanks to GMA News. GMA News is the only one doing an episode summary as a news item on TV kind of thing, according to Ralph Domingo’s From The Tube WordPress blog. Its rivals ABS-CBN News, News5, and CNN Philippines doesn’t do that.

GMA News was once the most trusted news source in the Philippines. With AlDub being in the news item almost everyday on GMA News, I think that AlDub is already overexposed.

AlDub Hype Gone Worse

My View About The Kalyeserye

I actually missed the first month of the phenomenon that shook the country by storm: Kalyeserye, a split-screen romance between Alden Richards and Yaya Dub (portrayed by Maine Mendoza). Back then, I was glued with Showtime, with Funny One as the cream of the crop. I started watching this accidental romance at about August 17, the same time Showtime launched its controversial segment “Twerking Girls.”

After watching back and forth, I started to stick with Eat Bulaga. After a few days I stay tuned to Kalyeserye almost everyday.

Staying strong for almost two months now, Kalyeserye is now giving Eat Bulaga a huge boost on its ratings, making Showtime panicked with emergency meetings almost everyday.

With the upcoming showdown between Alden and Yaya Dub looming this Saturday on “Bulaga Pa More Dabarkads Pa More” Wildcard, I’m pretty sure that more and more televiewers will watch the showdown unfold between Alden and Yaya Dub. Who will be the winners and losers? Find out this Saturday at Eat Bulaga, 11:30am on GMA.
