MANILA, Philippines-
After only more than a month of airing, ABS-CBN primetime music-serye “Idol” will have its finale this week.

“Idol,” which stars Box Office Queen Sarah Geronimo, Sam Milby and Coco Martin, premiered on September 6 and will end on October 22.

An online report quoted Biboy Arboleda, “Idol’s” advertising and promotions head, as saying that high production costs - particularly the royalty fees of songs used on the show - and scheduling problems were the reasons for the early ending of “Idol.”

“Idol” was originally scheduled to air for 10-13 weeks, according to Arboleda.

Milby added that lack of time resulted in the early demise of “Idol.”

According to the actor, the cast and crew would usually tape an episode in the morning. The same episode would be shown later in the evening.

And with him and Geronimo doing shows abroad, shooting for “Idol” would be even more difficult, he said.

Rumor has it that “Idol’s” low TV ratings were pulling down ABS-CBN “Primetime Bida’s” over-all performance, prompting the network to pull it off the air. The staff of the program, however, refuted the speculations.

Saddened

Milby said he and the cast of “Idol” were saddened by the decision of the network to cut the show short.

The actor admitted that bidding goodbye to his co-stars is more difficult, especially now that all of them have grown closer together.

On the supposed budding romance between him and Geronimo, meanwhile, Milby denied it.

He maintained that he does not want to make a big fuss over his team-up with Geronimo. He also hopes that he and Geronimo will work again in the near future.

Milby, who was rumored to be dating international acoustic singer Marie Digby, added that he is still single.

Though he denied any romantic commitment, Milby confessed that he and Digby are still exchanging text messages from time to time.

    just a speculation... kaya siguro na-cancel ang IDOL ay hindi pumayag si boss vic sa ginawa ng ABS na pag-move ng timeslot ng show... lalo na nga't the show is targeting young audience... tapos yung sinundan nyang program ay heavy drama na talagang pang-adult ang tema... na dapat ay mas late ang schedule... di ba dapat 4 weeks ago pa na-move ang timeslot ng idol... kaso hindi na lang siya ginalaw... kaso, nung pumasok ang imortal... wala na sigurong nagawa si boss vic...

    for whatever it's worth, i just want to mention that aside from sarah, angel and kristine are also viva artists... there were probably big decisions to make... and boss vic would rather have the show cancelled than mabastos... isang wholesome / family oriented show, ginawa nilang pang nocturnal audience... kung kailan pa naman maganda na ang flow ng story...

    anyway... we will love and support you bebe...

    tama ka dyan ka popster ... [img]https://sarahgeronimo.com/uploads/ipb/style_emoticons/legacy/Emeng Uulitin.png[/img] alt=':Emeng Uulitin:' ]
    may di napagkasunduan ang bawat kampo ... VIVA & ABS ...
    kaya ganyang lumabas na over the budget ...
    ngayon ba sila magtipid ... eh sa casting lang ... ilang lang ang masasabing kilala na.. kaya siguro wala si SARAH sa asap xv .....o maging si sam (or maybe di ko pinanood ng buo ito dahil sa opening number wala na si Sarah kaya di na ko nakaconcentrate ...) sa awayan ng dalawang producer ang naiipit ay si SARAH????
    hhaaayyy .... kawawa naman bebe ko .... [img]https://sarahgeronimo.com/uploads/ipb/style_emoticons/legacy/Emeng Cryn2.png ] ANUMAN YAN BEBE KO ... ANDITO LAHAT KAMI .... DI KA NAMIN IIWAN ... WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH ... PAGSUBOK LAMANG YAN....[/img]

    well, maybe ur right.. ut i think they moved the time slot later because it has high ratings so people will still watch it. Pero hindi ko alam if Idol has high rating or not... all i know is... I LOVE IT SO MUCH AND I WATCH IT EVERY SINGLE DAY IT'S AIRED HERE SA TFC ^.^ lol
