The real competition is about to begin in “Pinoy Boyband Superstar” as the Top 40 aspiring heartthrobs who passed the audition will finally be put under intense scrutiny in the competition’s Middle Rounds this weekend (Oct 22 and 23) on ABS-CBN.
For the first time, the boys will be assembled into groups and perform together in front of the superstar judges and fans in hopes of securing a slot in the Live Shows.
But first, the superstar judges Vice Ganda, Sandara Park, Yeng Constantino, and Aga Muhlach will deliberate on the boys and pick the Top 20 singing heartthrobs, who will be then clustered into four five-member groups.
It will not be the end of the road for the Bottom 20 because they have to prove themselves once again when they perform – in two ten-member groups – in front of the judges.
From there, five contestants will be selected to make up the last and fifth group that will compete against the four groups earlier selected by the judges.
The five groups of boys will then have to pull out all the stops and show off their talent, excellence, and overall appeal because even though they will perform together, they will judged individually by the superstar judges and fans.
From the Top 25, the judges and fans will select their Top 12 favorites who will move on to the Live Shows.
Which wanna-be boyband members will be able to take one step closer to their dream? Whose performances will stand out for both the judges and fans?
Don’t miss the journey of aspiring boyband members as they make their dreams come true in “Pinoy Boyband Superstar,” which airs on Saturdays at 7:15PM and on Sundays at 7PM. For updates, visit boyband.ph, like facebook.com/BoybandPH on Facebook, and follow @BoybandPH on Twitter. (TV Series Craze)

Partnering with Samsung and GrabCar, FOX will offer passengers an opportunity to experience their ride immersed amongst ‘walkers,’ as zombies are commonly referred to in the series, using Virtual Reality technology, promising a ride they will never forget.
Charo Espedido, Head of Marketing and Programming at FOX Networks Group Philippines, said the campaign aims to excite new and die-hard fans alike.
“This campaign was created specifically for fans in Southeast Asia with all the VR content shot in the region as well. We wanted to bring new fans into The Walking Dead world but also heighten the anticipation amongst the fans who have been following the series over the last 6 seasons, especially given the massive cliffhanger in last season’s finale episode. Fans will be mesmerized by the VR experience, and avid fans will also notice certain hints and references to the series storyline that we’ve purposely dropped in. Make sure to look for them!”
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead is an award-winnning drama series and a global phenonmenon, following Rick Grimes and his group as they navigate life and dangers after a zombie apocalypse.

For the first time, Angel Locsin, Sam Milby and Zanjoe Marudo come together in a movie about an unlikely set-up of a love, an old flame and second chances in “The Third Party,” airing in key cities worldwide this October via TFC@theMovies.
Graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB), “The Third Party” tells the story of Andi (Locsin), a woman who is still not over her ex-boyfriend and high school best friend Max (Milby). After some years, their paths cross again and Andi hopes that this becomes the perfect time to rekindle their romance. Her hope crushes after Max introduces her to his partner Christian (Marudo).
Andi is ready to move on again until in an interesting twist of fate, an untoward incident forces her to run back to Max and asks if she could live with him and Christian. As Andi tries one more time to win back the heart of Max, Christian is determined to do everything to keep him.
The multi-awarded Locsin said in an interview in “Tonight With Boy Abunda” that everyone can surely relate to the film, especially those who have had their hearts broken before. Locsin explains: “Kasi lahat po tayo ay nagmahal at nasaktan, nagmaganda at umasa pero minsan, may kapalit na.”
Kapamilya Heartthrob Milby’s character Max who may have taken the break up badly at the start, has already moved on and is now in a tight relationship with Christian. This is the case until he sees ex-girlfriend Andi and feels his heart beat for her again. Milby says it’s about taking a bit something from the past to learn how to deal much with the present and what could be the future. “It’s about making mistakes but realizing that those mistakes will become good blessings,” Milby says.
Christian, played by another Kapamilya Heartthrob Marudo, who is settled with Max, will find Andi’s entry, albeit accidental, very intrusive. “Hindi puwedeng ganoon kasi dalawa kayo sa relasyon,” Marudo says of his character’s perception.
In the circus of it all, Andi trying to win Max back and Christian doing everything to keep their relationship – whose love will prevail?
Find out by watching “The Third Party which also stars esteemed actors Odette Khan, Carla Martinez, Al Tantay, Alma Moreno and Cherry Pie Picache; talented actresses Beauty Gonzalez and Matet de Leon; and the new generation of actresses Maris Racal, Katrina Legaspi, plus child star Chun Sa Jung.

RTL CBS Entertainment brings the latest seasons of hit series ELEMENTARY and SCORPION to audiences in the region. The fifth season of ELEMENTARY starring Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller in the modern retelling of the classic Sherlock Holmes story premieres on primetime October 12, Wednesday at 9:55pm (8:55pm JKT/BKK). Starring Elyes Gabel and Katharine McPhee, SCORPION season 3 airs its first episode last October 4, Tuesday at 9:00pm (8:00pm JKT/BKK), first and exclusive on RTL CBS Entertainment, same day as the US.
Aside from saving the world from the biggest technological threats, there are so many things to look forward to with Scorpion’s latest season. At the recent 2016 Comic-Con event, Scorpion season 3 executive producer Nicholas Wootton revealed that the upcoming season will be packed with action and emotion-filled episodes, not to mention more mind-blowing revelations. The producer added that the characters will take a massive personal turn while Happy's revelation about her previous marriage will agitate the team. Scorpion season 3 will tackle Walter's pursuit for emotional maturity.
Storylines for this new season include Cabe’s new love interest, as well as on Ralph’s role as a translator for a boy with autism who can't speak; plus the developments on Walter and Paige’s blossoming relationship.
In the Season 4 finale of Elementary, Morland Holmes became the new leader of Moriarty’s syndicate, fired his team of henchmen, and left for England—not before promising Sherlock that the group would withdraw from New York. Some serious questions have left us hanging. Was that the last we saw of Morland? Will Sherlock ever get past the things his father has said? (TV Series Craze)
SCORPION, inspired by a true story, is a high-octane drama about eccentric genius Walter O’Brien and his team of brilliant misfits, who are the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age. As Homeland Security’s new think tank, O’Brien’s Team Scorpion includes Toby Curtis an expert behaviorist who can read anyone; Happy Quinn, a mechanical prodigy; and Sylvester Dodd, a statistics guru. Pooling their extensive technological knowledge to solve mind-boggling predicaments amazes federal agent Cabe Gallo, who shares a harrowing history with O’Brien. However, while this socially awkward group is comfortable with one another’s humor and quirks, life outside their circle confounds them, so they rely on Paige Dineen, who has a young, gifted son, Ralph, to translate the world for them. At last, these quirky masterminds have found the perfect job: a place where they can apply their exceptional brainpower to solve the nation’s crises while also helping one another learn how to fit in. Scorpion stars Elyes Gabel, Robert Patrick, Katharine McPhee, Jadyn Wong, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Ari Stidham and Riley B. Smith. (TV Series Craze)
ELEMENTARY stars Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson in a modern-day drama about a crime-solving duo that cracks the NYPD’s most impossible cases. Initially sober companion and client, Watson and Holmes' relationship evolved into a symbiotic professional investigative partnership, until he chose to end their association and accept a job with MI6 in London. Upon Holmes' return, he learned Watson started her own detective agency and was the NYPD’s primary consultant, working regularly with Captain Thomas Gregson and Detective Marcus Bell. Further complicating their relationship was Holmes’ new enigmatic protégé, Kitty. While still drawn into one another’s investigations and lives, the duo mostly worked apart, until an adversary from Kitty’s past caused them to join forces to apprehend her enemy. When Kitty departed, the duo strived to repair their partnership and friendship, but ghosts from their pasts threatened their reconciliation. Watson was unmoored by the murder of her boyfriend at the hands of her criminal nemesis, while Sherlock was subjected to a series of machinations by a former associate that caused him to relapse and end three years of sobriety.

Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, who famously played roommates Joey Tribbiani and Chandler Bing, respectively, on Friends, will have a reunion of sorts when their shows start airing on their new home, RTL CBS Entertainment.
The Odd Couple, starring Matthew Perry, will have the premiere of its third season on October 21. Matt LeBlanc’s new show Man With A Plan is set to premiere on October 28.
As both shows go on air this October, viewers can look forward to Friday night fun watching two different but humorous takes on the domestic challenges faced by modern guys.
Is ‘Daddy’ Fun Times really having fun?
Le Blanc’s new role in is a seeming departure from Joey Tribbiani’s womanizing as his equally hilarious role in Man With A Plan looks into the challenges that fatherhood pose.
In this new series, LeBlanc plays the role of Adam Burns, a contractor who finds himself taking care of his three kids when his wife, a stay-at-home Mom for 13 years goes back to work. While Adam wanted to call himself “Daddy Fun Times,” he discovers that parenthood is not always a smooth and easy ride.
As Adam gets to perform his new role as head of the household, he finds himself dealing with his kids’ internet addiction, untidiness, and the need for their wishes to be constantly indulged.
Among Adam’s misadventures is only having Listerine strips to offer when his kids look for snacks while on the way to school. Adam also forgets a universal sentiment among kids – that cleaning up and doing chores is no fun.
Adam also offers up some timeless fatherly advice. After his youngest daughter tells him that kindergarten frightens her, Adam says: “Honey, you should be worried – kids are mean. But just know, if you ever feel uncomfortable, just start swingin’ – a punch in the nose could be a real problem solver.”
Faced with these mounting pressures, can Adam really be the great father that his wife expects him to be?
For better or for worse
LeBlanc played a womanizer in Friends but it looks like he has passed on that role to his real-life buddy Matthew Perry, who is back on The Odd Couple as playboy sportswriter and radio sports host Oscar Madison. On the show, Oscar ends up living with his college friend, Felix Unger (played by Thomas Lennon), in a disorderly bachelor apartment, after his ex-wife divorces him for being thoughtless.
Going for a second shot at real love, Oscar copes with his new life together with Felix, a clean freak whose desire for a clean apartment puts him at odds with his divorcee friend. And even as Oscar begins dating other women, he never quite moves on from his previous marriage.
As Oscar and Felix try to get past their differences, will they finally find their dream romance by season three?
Catch The Odd Couple’s season three premiere on October 21, 9:30PM, and Man With A Plan’s series premiere on October 28, 9:00PM, exclusive on RTL CBS Entertainment. (TV Series Craze)
