Format

There are three groups, each made up of ten to twenty-five members (with no age limit), performing a single performance, whether it is a song and/or dance number or an acting performance. Before the performance, at least one member of the group is given 20 seconds to make an introduction in any way that reflects the group, but should end with the clause "It's Showtime!", but in the All Star Barangayan edition, their barangay will be given 30 seconds of their introduction but same process and the barangay with the best introduction will win P10,000. After the performance, the judges, as well as members of the audience, rate the group from 1 to 10. Audience ratings do not count, but can influence the ratings to be given by the judges.

A fourth competition spot is randomly given to one of three groups who did not pass the auditions, but are still worthy to perform in the show. After the group's performance, the judges would give a collective yes or no to the group. If the judges give a yes, the group is considered part of the main contest, with the judges' scores to the group's performance to be included in the calculation for the winner. A no would, of course, mean exclusion of the group from the main contest. This segment was removed during season 2. In season 3, during the February 16, 2011 episode, the said segment was returned but no random selection, instead the group automatically performs on stage.

The group with the highest average score from the judges wins and proceeds to the weekly finals. All winners throughout the whole week perform in the weekly finals. Whoever wins in the weekly finals will get the chance to compete in the monthly finals. Lastly, all the monthly finalists compete in a season grand finals.

Segments

Aside from the group competition, Showtime also showcased performances from local and international celebrities in a talent portion called "Magpasikat!", which basically translates to "Show What You Got". "Magpasikat" was later replaced with "Kantaranta," a segment similar to The Singing Bee. The show's presenters would play a song and then asking random audience members to fill in the missing lyric/s. The audience members who guessed correctly would win P1000 each and move on to the Bonus Round, where they get to play for P5000. This segment was continued during season 2 until it was replaced with the "I Know U" segment, a quiz portion wherein 25 random audience members will participate in the game. There will 5 stations composed of 5 members each, vying for the 20,000 pesos cash prize.

Current segments

Sample Mo, Premyo Mo

After the audience rates the group, the hosts may randomly choose a person to show off their "sample" talent (Singing, Dancing, Acting, etc.) Depending on entertainment, humor, and other factors, the random five-digit money screen will stop on how much the person wins. The maximum winnings is P25,000.

Himigsikan

This musical segment runs every Friday featuring co-host Jugs Jugueta of Itchyworms and Teddy Corpuz of Rocksteddy.

Magpasikat: Gig 'Mo To!

This musical segment runs every Saturday featuring unsigned bands performing.

Discontinued segments

Year Game Name Game Description
2010-2011 Hulihin ang Bituin, Kampihan Kapamilya

This segment was hosted by K Brosas and Pooh and aired in Saturdays and pre-taped in barangays. Fifty contestants battle out in mini-games for P100,000. There are six types of mini-games whether it is simply correctly identifying a played song, or taking part in a physical dare. After the cancellation of Pilipinas Win Na Win, this segment was carried over for a few more weeks. The Grand Draw of Hulihin ang Bituin was held Jan. 22, drawn 4 winners of P100,000 and 1 winner of P1,000,000 from all entries sent nationwide during the promo period.

2010-2011 Sample Sample Sample

Sample! Sample! Sample! is a segment wherein contestants can showcase their talents to the judges and audience. Whoever wins either an individual, duo, or group win P20,000 based on judges' highest average score and comes back the next day as a defending winner. If the contestants' win streak is at least three days, they automatically win P100,000 and a chance to compete in the segment's grand finals. The first grand finals was held on December 25, 2010 and the second grand finals was held on February 5, 2011.

2011 Arte Mo!

In the Arte Mo! elimination round, fifty random contestants (ten from a local city and forty from the studio audience) play in a last-man standing game. A multiple choice question about music, television, movies, etc. with four possible answers will be asked to the contestants. A cast member of the show will act a possible answer. Contestants will line up to the answer they think is correct. The last person standing wins P10,000 and advances to the I Know U jackpot round for a chance to win P200,000. The segment discontinued due to time limitation.

2011 I Know U

The winner of Arte Mo! advances to I Know U for the P200,000 jackpot prize. Two minutes will be given to the contestant and six random audience members he/she chooses for extra help to guess the mystery person. This mystery person can be anyone, and the contestant is given one hint of the mystery person. During the two minutes, the contestant must ask simple questions to narrow down the guess of the mystery person. Vice Ganda would light up Yes, No, or both Yes and No to narrow down the guesses. Also during the two minutes, the contestant will be given money offers that he/she will win if the guess is right, the offers can go up to P200,000. The contestant has to say "I Know U" before he/she says a guess of who the mystery person is. If the contestant identifies the mystery person, the six random audience members he/she chose earlier will win P5,000 each and he/she will win what he/she was offered. If the contestant does not correctly identify the mystery person after two minutes is up, the contestant only wins P10,000. The segment discontinued due to time limitation.


Judges

Five judges will be present for a whole week from Monday to Saturday. They will grade the group performances from ten being the highest, and one being the lowest possible score. Judge Vice Ganda is the only judge who can present his score right after the performance.

Every week, one or more judges will be voted off. In this portion called Hurado o Burado (lit. "Judge or Erased"), the audience and the viewers may evict judge/s through SMS. If a judge gets more than 25% of the total votes, he or she is evicted. Vice Ganda (as a permanent judge) is the only judge who is exempt from all public votes. The permanent judge was initially a spot for Long Mejia, but during the mock competition, Vice Ganda (who was supposedly a guest judge) was hired as the permanent judge.

Controversies

MTRCB suspension

Showtime was suspended by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) for 20 days. This was due to comments uttered by guest judge Rosanna Roces against certain groups, especially on teachers, heard live on 7 January 2010. As a form of self-regulation, ABS-CBN relieved Roces of her jury duty, but suspension was still served against the show effective 11 January 2010, thus returning on February 1. In the meantime, a placeholder show called Magpasikat would take over Showtime's timeslot.<ref>{{{author}}}, MTRCB suspends Showtime for 20 days for Rosanna Roces's statements against teachers, Philippine Entertainment Portal, January 11, 2010.</ref> Magpasikat is basically the same show except the competing groups are composed of celebrities, Vice Ganda is included as a host than as a judge, and a quiz portion for audience members is added.

The suspension period, however, lasted only six days after the Court of Appeals issued a 60-day temporary restraining order against the MTRCB on 15 January 2010. The issuance of the order, and therefore the return of Showtime was announced later in Magpasikat.<ref>{{{author}}}, 'Showtime returns on air tomorrow, Philippine Entertainment Portal, January 18, 2010.</ref><ref>Showtime will be back on air today retrieved via www.abs-cbn.com 1-19-2010</ref><ref>Could ‘Showtime’ be airing its final episode?. ABS-CBN.com (2010-03-27). Retrieved on 2010-12-08.</ref>

On 26 March 2010, MTRCB ordered a total 1-month suspension of the program because of the incident, including the replacement "Magpasikat." The MTRCB also directed the filing of criminal charges against Florida Tan, ABS-CBN vice-president for programming, and other officers "responsible for the violation."<ref>by crix on Fri, 03/26/2010 - 19:08 (2010-03-26).
