Critical responseEdit

In March 1992, Angela Stuart Santiago of the Manila Standard criticized the show's lack of professionalism, stating that "Jim, Danny, and Boboy rarely know the lyrics of the songs they sing; often their numbers with guests and female co-hosts turn out like amateur karaoke affairs, out of tune and out of synch [sic]."[1]
