#ZG16: The Turf’s 16 Philippine TV Memories of 2016


ANOTHER YEAR will come to a wrap — two days to be exact but 2016 was not sweet as it meant to be but it tasted too sour and too bitter — be it in the aspect of entertainment, sports and local & global politics.

And the Turf understands about it but before we say “good riddance” or any uttering to release such frustrations from this annus horribilis, let’s all recall the top 16 moments that transpired over television in the Philippines.

Hold on to your judgments because it’s a hell of a bumpy ride.



#TheFilipinoDecides2016: PiliPinas Debates 2016 Post-Mortem

Pilipinas Debates 2016 will continue on its second leg on TV5 this Palm Sunday (March 20).

PiliPinas Debates 2016 ended yesterday. How does these debates will each participating network learn and need to learn for the Election Day broadcast in two weeks?

FOR THE PAST two months, you were able to watch at least one of the first COMELEC-organized debate series after 24 years — three (3) presidential and one (1) vice-presidential.

After yesterday’s final leg of the PiliPinas Debates 2016, you already decided who to vote for President and Vice President on May 9 but if not, don’t worry, the Turf says, “Take your time.”

In this post, how did each leg of the debate played out? Will this assessment pose their respective better coverage on Election Day itself? Let’s analyze them in detail.

NOTE: The Turf did not include the Harapan ng Bise on ABS-CBN that happened last April 17 because they’re not organized by COMELEC.
