No Reservations Philippines, February 16th!!!

Two weeks from now, the episode of No Reservations Philippines with Anthony Bourdain is scheduled to air at 10p.m., Eastern Time, according to the Travel Channel TV schedule posted on their website. I am so excited, and I can’t even watch it from the Philippines! :( But at any rate, more than 50% of marketmanila’s regular readers seem to reside in North America, so I am hoping that at least some of you will get to see it and hopefully leave me a comment that day if it was okay or just plain horrible (or if they cut out Cebu entirely)! Or better yet, if you know how, record it or segments of it (lechon?!) and put it on youtube… please? So mark your calendars now, Feb 16th, Monday, at 10 p.m. Eastern. There are nearly 4-5 million Filipinos in North America and I hope a whole lot of them get to see this episode. Start those chain emails/alerts to let everyone know… My fingers and toes are crossed. :)

  1. I’ve been scanning the travel channel website for any news on when it will be shown. I can (illegally) download it and put it on a DVD for you if you like

  2. siopao, oh, wouldn’t want you to do that… producers promised me a dvd, I’ll just have to wait for it I guess… but actually, the teen says I can buy the episode online and download it to my ipod! :) But thanks for the kind offer, siopao!

  3. Ooops, I apologize for the careless comment…

    We Bourdain junkies need our fix as quick as possible :-)

    Sorry again

  4. Hi, hi, hi, crossing your toes too huh! I’m so excited, I’m so excited. Feb 16 is also the day our builder will start building our dream home, a coastal home with waterview here in northwest Florida

  5. Oh oh oh…hope we get to see it here…how do we do that? Is there a way to get a feed on that episode?How? When?
    Would be a birthday treat for me sana…that’s my birthday!! Sigh..been waiting so long for that….waaaaaa…

  6. Thanks for the info. I just got my cable a week ago, and I have been checking Bourdain’s schedule everyday. Naku kahit pa 12 midnight sa amin ito, I will surely watched it. And of course will record it for my other relatives. They recently feature lechon in Puerto Rico, ano kaya ang pagkakaiba?

  7. Is there any streaming links? i like to watch it, even just a replay, I hope you guys can have a recording and upload it in youtube…..

    Im not in the Eastern region… Im in the South.. (philippines though… LOL)

  8. I’m so excited MM ! Yes, its available on iTunes usually just a few days after it airs — just $2.00 per episode. I don’t have an iPod (with a screen) but I can watch it from my pc (bigger screen too) again and again. Also, like Lee mentioned, there’s a youtube channel that uploads it usually by the week-end after an episode airs. I surprised (pleasantly) that the Travel Channel doesn’t have it shut down.

  9. woohoo! woohoo! i’ve been watching “no reservations'” new episodes every monday and checking if the philippines will be next. thanks for informing us! will mark my calendar! :)

    are they (travel channel) sending you a video copy at least for posterity? :)

  10. new episodes of the show get an instant replay afterwards, so if you missed it at 10PM EST, you can still watch it at 11pm! :)

    but i guess fans of the show already know this. :P

  11. yes, please record and upload it on youtube,especially for someone like me who doesn’t have cable or even a

  12. Do you think the schedule in North America jive with the schedule here in Manila under Travel and Living channel? Sorry, but I keep missing episode of the show due to the schedule conflict with my son favorite cartoon network. Anyway, will try to check every week till the 10th of Feb.

    oooohhhhh…I’m so excited….

  13. For those who susbscribe to Time Warner Cable in California you can watch NR (if you have HDTV)on Channel 452 at 7:00 pm and replays afterwards now I don’t have to wait 10:00 pm just to watch it i usually fall asleep but i do record it so I can watch it next day i just don’t know how to upload it on the internet.

  14. Jaja, Malou, et al, we tend to be about 1/2-3/4 season behind here in Southeast Asia, so I suspect it will be several months yet before it is shown on local cable. I don’t think I will be able to resist buying a video from itunes for $1.99 a few days after it airs. But that’s me. :)

  15. As far as I know it won’t be available on itunes if you download it from the Philippines. You’d have to ask someone from the US or Canada to download it for you and then send it to you

  16. I was wrong… you can buy it from iTunes as long as you’re logged on to the “US store” instead of the “Philippines store”

  17. i was quite perturbed when the Phil episode wasn’t aired yet in Jan..i’m here now in the phil, and even though i can have it recorded back home, i want to view it asap… i have to be happy to view it thru the above media here then…thanks for the info…CAN’T WAIT!!!

  18. I’ve been waiting for that, too. I get Travel and Living. I’m wondering if anyone knows when it’ll be aired in Asia.

  19. Don’t think there’s any way they’ll cut out the Cebu segment. This was the short description of the show on the Travel Channel schedule:

    Tony visits the Philippines, the “Land of the Lechon.” He stops in Manila, which is a diverse combination of Spanish and Chinese cultures. Then he heads off to Pampanga to sample some of their rare delicacies.

    Sounds more like yours will be the longest segment… :)

  20. Yup!

    It’s actualy 10pm across the board. It would be shown here in the West Coast at 10pm also (would already be 1am in the East Coast so East Coast folks get to see it first). Then reruns around 2am and Tuesdays.

    Unless you have one of those dish or satellites then you can view it at the same time as the East Coast Folks.

    Can’t wait, MM.

  21. Thanks for letting us know MM! I will DVR it. For those of you who can’t catch the first showing, they repeat it anyway. Just check the schedule.

  22. I can’t wait to watch this episode. I’m sure a lot of your readers are also eagerly waiting for you international TV debut!

  23. Mila: what a good idea!

    Onie, do you have a satellite dish? I will bring Pancit Malabon or your favorite, Sans Rival or whatever you want if you have a satellite dish!


  24. My dvr is already set to record all new episodes of “No reservations” Once i get it,,,i’ll make sure i’ll swing you a copy Betty Q.

  25. am watching A. Bourdain as i type this messages. Dressed on old confederate soldier and eating those plantation cooking it’s all about the south (South Carolina) i’ll record it on my dvd recorder and upload it in my computer then send thru emails as attachment in streaming videos . . i’ll do it. i hope Mr. Bourdain is not using expletive words on this one. He’s not popular here in the Bible belt country.

  26. We have Satellite TV and not cable, and Bourdain’s No Reservations is on Discovery Travel and Living. It gets me excited everytime I see a commercial for his show, I can’t wait too to watch the Philippine episode. :)

  27. Thanks for sharing that info Lee and Patrick…. Im so excited to watch the man do his thing.. ^___^

  28. To all Comcast subscribers in the SF Bay area, the “NR-Philippines” will be shown on 2/16, from 7-8pm, so get your dvr, vcr, or whatever means to get it recorded at that time.

  29. flip4ever salamat sa link mo. Wahhh, I might not have the cable connection comes Feb. 16. My hubby was not satisfied with the DirectTV connection we have, ayun pinatatanggal this week. Maki-ko hiram na lang ako sa mga inyo. Salamat in advance.

  30. We have been waiting for this episode! My wife and I (and all her relatives from Cebu) will be watching Bourdain in the Philippines next week. Looking forward to seeing Tony lip smackin’ and greased up from your succulent Lechon.

    Only wish we were in Cebu to enjoy it too!

  31. I was informed by my nephew there in the Phils. that the Philippines episode will show on February 18. So check out the TV sked now.

  32. Is there any video stream sites that show the full episode? Been checking since this morning and I can’t find any. Mga pinoy pa naman mabibilis mag upload. :(
