TV5 Happy Their Saturday Night Programs Rate Well: 'Lola Basyang', 'Parangnormal Activity' & The Well Loved Sitcom 'Kano Luvs Pinay'

TV5 IS HAPPY that their Saturday evening programming is rating well with shows like “LolaBasyang.com”, “ParangNormal Activity” and the newest addition, “Kano Luvs Pinay”, starring Tuesday Vargas and American actor Lee O’Brian. A lot of viewers can identify with the humorous situations in the rollicking sitcom, like names that are repetitions of just one syllable like Jonjon and Bongbong, gaudy fiestas, extended families, nosey neighbors and its unique and hilarious takes on the realities of interracial relationships and unique Filipino culture and family values.

Viewers also find endearing the unlikely romance between the witty and smart Cookie (Tuesday) and the loving Matthew (Lee), or “Matchew” as she fondly calls him, who keeps mispronouncing a lot of Filipino words. A rap song they sing in one sequence is now a big hit on youtube as it’s really done in a very entertaining way. Don’t miss “Kano Luvs Pinay” every Saturday night at 9PM on TV5.
