Where in the world do we not know the exact time-slots of our favorite TV shows?
Only in the Philippines. Only here do viewers get told to watch such-and-such a program after such-and-such a program, or during an unseen program (which is really a “block”) called telebabad. I remember when I first heard of that word a few years ago during a Magpakailanman advertisement: “Watch Magpakailanman after Telebabad.” I remember asking myself, “Telebabad? What show is that? How come I never see it?”
Or what about the daytime soap, Leya? I do not get to watch at noontime often, but I decided to take a look one time to see the premiere telecast. What did the advertisement tell me? “Watch for it after DaisySiyete (or whatever show that was).” What? I didn’t even know the time-slot of that one. How was I supposed to know?
Where in the world do supposedly 30 minute shows run for 45 minutes or even more? Where else are news programs capable of extending themselves to 2 hours just to pester the rival network?
Only in the Philippines. Only here has the Goddess of Discipline and Good Sense totally gone and taken all her blessings with her. You cannot tell when exactly a show will start. You cannot tell when it will end. To make sure you catch a specific program, you have to sit through two others before it, it seems. You can’t look at the clock and say, “Oh, Darna na!” I remember ONCE I turned on the TV late since usually, at that time, Extra Challenge was still on. But it turned out that Mulawin aired early that time to give way for a New Year’s Eve special. Just like that. No word, no warning.
And remember when both TV Patrol and 24 Oras went super, mega overtime when they interviewed Mrs. Susan Roces-Poe during FPJ’s wake? That was really the latter show’s fault, if I recall, because they were supposed to “share” the interview with the other networks but since they were first, they decided to make life miserable for the rival news program by making them wait for an hour. I think their interview of Roces ate up ¾ of their airtime that night. Of course, TV Patrol was not to be outdone. I think Mulawin and other shows were delayed by about 2 hours because of that.
And where in the Philippines do the networks jumble their programs faster than a gambler shuffles cards?
One week it is this, next week it is that. For once, ABS-CBN did something I liked: those guys moved their primetime news show to the 6 o’clock slot. I was impressed because their shows always finished in time---for a week. Then next week, it went back to 6:30 and so on. And don’t blink! The show you watch at such and such a time can be gone the next day! No joke!
It’s this kind of undisciplined programming that needs to change. It’s as if the AGB Overnight Ratings were Holy Writ. A lightning that strikes from heaven bringing tele-damnation if you don’t act fast enough. Look at what happened to NAKS and Bubble Gang Jr. If my memory serves me well, the former was only slightly behind Goin’ Bulilit when GMA 7 sacked the show and replaced it with its own hastily and ill- prepared child sitcom. Everyone is in such a hurry to demolish everyone else. The TV Ratings have become to the networks what the stock market is to businessmen.
Of course, the ratings matter. That’s how you tell what the viewers want. But does that give them a license to drive us crazy and ruin our day while still making us pay in the process? They can’t even tell us when exactly a particular show is going to air, and for how long. Who are they making a fool of? I really wish that there’d be more superpower TV networks. Maybe then these two giants would come to their senses.
And by the way, it’s such a stupid move to insert Attic Cat before the telefantasya series. What a joke. And they told us once that they moved the two shows to an earlier time-slot for the sake of young viewers who need to go to school. Yeah right. Then why did they do this in the middle of the school season?
The GMAT exam helps you stand out during the admissions process.

The GMAT is offered by appointment, at your convenience, almost every day of the year. You will be required to register online before making an appointment.
You can register online for the GMAT at mba.com. The cost—or “appointment fee”–to take the exam is currently $275 in the United States, but the price varies from country to country. The Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC) takes personal checks, money orders, and most major credit cards.
If you’re re-taking the GMAT, just follow the same procedures. However, keep in mind that you are not allowed to take the GMAT more than once in any 16-day period.
Choose a Testing Center
Before you register, find a testing center that’s convenient for you and determine whether that site has available seats. Each testing center operates on its own schedule and can accommodate varying numbers of test takers. To locate a testing center near you, go to mba.com
Register and Schedule Your Appointment
Available time slots change continuously as people register for the test. You will find out what times are available at your chosen testing center when you register. You may be able to schedule an appointment within a few days of your desired test date, but popular dates (especially weekends) fill up quickly. Admissions deadlines for business schools vary. Check with the schools and make your test appointment early enough to allow your scores to be reported before the schools’ application deadlines.

The Day of the Test
Gma Telebabad Time Slot 2019 World Series
You should arrive at your testing center 30 minutes before the time of your scheduled appointment.
You must complete a number of security measures before you will be allowed to take the exam. A late arrival (15 minutes or more) may result in you being turned away from the testing center and forfeiting of your test fee.
Identify Yourself Correctly
When scheduling your test appointment, be sure that the spelling of your name and your stated date of birth match the ID you will present at the testing center. If those do not match, you will not be permitted to take the test, and your test fee will be forfeited.
You will be asked to present ID—no exceptions. The following are the only acceptable forms:
- Government-issued driver’s license
- Government-issued national/state/province identity card (including European ID card)
- Military ID card
If you aren’t a citizen of the country in which you take your test, you’ll probably need your passport. In some countries, a passport will always be required. Visit mba.com for the current requirements. The ID must be current (not expired) and legible, and it should contain all four of the elements listed below. If you do not have one ID with all four of these elements, you will need to bring a second ID (also from the list above) that shows the missing elements.
- Your name in the Roman alphabet. It must be exactly the same as what you provided when you made your appointment, including the order and placement of the names.
- Your date of birth. The date of birth must also exactly match the date provided when you made your appointment.
- A recent, recognizable photograph
- Your signature
If these elements do not match what the test administrator has on file for you, you will not be allowed to take the GMAT, and your test fee will be forfeited.
Before you schedule your test appointment, make sure you understand all the requirements that are particular to your situation and have acquired or renewed the ID you will use. Also, note that if your ID is found to be fraudulent or invalid after you take the exam, your scores will be canceled and your test fee forfeited.
