Magaling talagang mag-alaga ng talent ang ABS-CBN. They give their big stars and talents their own projetcs and moments kaya nasa-cycle sila at hindi concentrated sa iilan ang kasikatan at hindi pinagsasawaan ng mga tao tulad nila Angel, Piolo, JLC, Sarah, Bea, Claudine, Juday, Echo, Kristine etc. etc. etc. They do well-chosen quality projects and receive huge paychecks in the end.

Kumpara sa gme7, iilan lang at all hype no substance pa ang nabibigyan ng break...over-exposed na, kayod-kalabaw pa pero bakit tinitipid pa rin sa sweldo?
