“We Wil Be Back!” – this is what the banner says on the website of Willie Revillame‘s new show.
Yes folks! Willie Revillame is making a comeback on primetime television but not through “Willing Willie” but with a similarly formatted show titled “Wiltime Bigtime.”
This was announced by Cristy Fermin on TV5’s daily showbiz program “Juicy! Express” this morning. The showbiz news reporter and tv host also said that the date of Revillame’s return and the premiere of the new program is on May 14, this coming Saturday.
Contrary to rumors that Willie’s new show will be transferred to the noontime slot competing against GMA-7’s “Eat! Bulaga” and ABS-CBN’s “Happy, Yipee, Yehey!”, “Wiltime Bigtime” will have the same time slot as “Willing Willie” – Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and weeknights at 6:30 p.m.
TV5 Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan, in an earlier interview, mentioned that it’s highly possible that “Willing Willie” or Revillame’s new show will start airing on May 14. The Kapatid Network, on the other hand, will release an official statement regarding this matter on May 12, 2 days before the target date of the Wiltime Bigtime‘s pilot episode.
It can be recalled that Willing Willie was suspended by the MTRCB because of its controversial March 12 episode (CLICK HERE FOR RELATED ARTICLE) which coincidentally happened on “Wiltime Bigtime” segment of the show.
