Boy & Kris say their show will stay.
The country's King and Queen of Talk, Boy Abunda and Kris Aquino, belied reports that their morning show "Boy & Kris" will end because of poor ratings.
"Hindi po ito totoo. Sa aming timeslot sa umaga, we're a leader in that particular timeslot , nationwide ratings. At maraming salamt po at sinusuportahan tayo ng buong-buo ng sambayanang Filipino," Abunda said over ABS-CBN's weekly entertainment show "The Buzz" Sunday afternoon.
Abunda's statement stemmed from reports saying that his show with Aquino will be replaced by another talk show which will be hosted by three women.
The report also claimed that actress Lorna Tolentino is being eyed as one of the hosts of the alleged new show.
Aquino explained that the nationwide ratings of their morning show are even improving.
The actress-host added that their show has the support advertisers, aided by its popularity in the Visayas and Mindanao.
Aside from high rating of "Boy & Kris," the two said they are proud that the show has been recognized by different award-giving bodies.
Among the awards the show and the hosts have won are: Best Celebrity Talk Show Hosts and Best Celebrity Talk Show from the PMPC Star Awards; Best Celebrity Talk Show host for Boy Abunda from the UP Los Baños Gandingan Award; and, the Silver World Medal for Talk and Interview from the 2009 New York Festival.
