De Leon gave the title of the show Eat Bulaga in which eat is representing Lunchtime, and Bulaga is describing the main objective of the show, i.e., to fill the show with surprises. The slogan of the show Hangga’t May Bata, May Eat Bulaga! Was also design by Leon which means that Where there will be children; there will be Eat Bulaga. When the show was aired on television for the first time, there were many chances of cancellation. This show has faced a lot of challenges and hurdle to maintain its record of the longest running noon time show in Philippines. The rating of the show gradually increased in 1980. In 1989 the Eat Bulaga show shifted to ABS-CBN because of some critical issues which were released by sequestration of RPN. Eat Bulaga then later on moved to the GMA. Through GMA Network’s universal channel Eat Bulaga was circulated out of the blue worldwide in 2005. At the end of 2002, the sexbomb girls resigned from the show after a debate with her producer. In 2009 Eat Bulaga celebrated its 30th commemoration, which is also named as “Tatlong Dekads ng Dabarkads”. The members of the show then worked sincerely to help the exceptional individuals like assisting 30 needy NGOs. In 2011 the Sexbomb girls along with Joy Cancio (who is a choreographer) resigned again. This time they left the show for ABS-CBN’s Happy Yipee Yehey! Joey De Leon left the show after a misconduct with TVJ trio. The producer of Student Canteen took advantage of this opportunity and offered Joey to join his show. He almost accepted the offer, but at the last moment, he decided to stay with Eat Bulaga.
