Judy Ann Santos’ “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala” will be off the air soon despite good ratings!

Judy Ann Santos‘ top rating teleserye Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala will be off the air soon!

Despite having high ratings, from the start of the airing and up until now when it was moved to a later time slot, going head to head with Kapuso’s top rating bekiserye My Husband’s Lover. High rating still remains and advertisements are still abound.


ABS-CBN is planning to move the time slot again to make way for KathNeil teleserye Got To Believe which will start airing this month. And rumors have it, that Juday was reprimanded as the rating dips as it was transferred to a new time slot, but is now again back in the ratings game.

Judy Ann’s contract with the Kapamilya network expired last July. This means that she is no longer bound to work exclusively with ABS-CBN and can now work with other networks as well.

But, a reliable source said that Judy Anne is now open to talks with other network and that she is not keen on renewing her contract not unless big changes and offer will come.

The source even said that the only thing that changes in the contract of Juday is the date it was renewed and not has changed. Even though she is already with the network for more or less 20 years.

Is this the reason that Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala is mawawala na sa ere this early? Will she turn Kapatid or Kapuso?

Judy Ann Santos offered a new ABS-CBN show, will she take it or leave it?

Judy Ann Santos whose contract with ABS-CBN expired last July and her teleserye Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala  in the network is about to end barely two months on air is offered a new show.


Many people are wondering why Huwag ka Lang Mawawala which is enjoying a huge audience viewership despite being moved to a later time slot and is now up against the bekiserye My Husband’s Lover of Kapuso network is about to end in two weeks time.

It was earlier rumored that she was reprimanded by a TV executive as the rating dipped while they were on a new time slot but later even gained more audience share. Talks have it that the network even wants to move it on a much later time to pave way for Got To Believe, but then Juday decided to end the teleserye while it is still enjoying bigger share of audience. And since her contract expired last July, the network could not do anything about her decision.

Now, an executive of ABS-CBN is offering her a new show, now that her teleserye is about to end.

Will Juday take the new show and sign a new exclusive contract with the network or she will opt to transfer to another network?

What do you think?

Judy Ann Santos to turn Kapatid or Kapuso soon?

Judy Ann Santos‘ contract with ABS-CBN ended last July and she has not renewed her contract with the network yet!


We already know that her teleserye Huwag Ka lang Mawawala will end on the third week of August. It is just a very short teleserye compared to her past teleseryes before.

It was rumored that Juday got pissed off because the time slot of the said teleserye was moved to a later time and now they wanted to move it again to a later time slot. Thus, she decided to end the teleserye while they are still enjoying high ratings.

Juday’s talent manager said that she is set to talk with Manny Pangilinan of TV5 anytime soon and also with Kapuso executives. The reason is that if Juday will renew her contract with ABS-CBN only the date is new and the rest of the contract are still the same.

Does this means that her talent fee is not increasing that much in the past 20 years with the network?

Will Judy Ann turns Kapatid or Kapuso?

What do you think?
