Eat Bulaga! (commonly known as EB!) is a long-running noon-time variety show from the Philippines. It airs weekdays at 12:00 PM to 2:30 PM and Saturdays at 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM. The show premiered on July 30, 1979 and it's currently celebrating its 33rd anniversary in Philippine television.[1]

Eat Bulaga! became the first Philippine variety show to be franchised by another country when Indonesia's SCTV network adapted a version of the show entitled as Eat Bulaga!

The Broadway Boys (also known as ON3) is a group of young singers who perform every Saturday on the show.[3] The group includes Joshua Torino, Joshua Lumbao, Benedict Aboyme, and the ultimate Champion, Francis Aglabtin. They are the finalists and winner of the Eat Bulaga! contest in 2017 "Lola's Playlist" which is also part of Kalyeserye. They were named "Broadway Boys" because of the location of the studio where they first sang together called Broadway Centrum.
