January 16, 2013 by TV5
Willie Revillame revealed the details on his upcoming noontime show “Wowowillie” during TV5’s trade show on Tuesday, January 15, at the Resorts World Manila’s Performing Arts theater.
In its continuing efforts to beef up all-day viewership, the Kapatid Network positions Willie Revillame‘s new variety game show “Wowowillie” in the noontime slot starting January 26, Saturday, 11:30am to 2:30pm.
TV5 teams up with Wil Productions to raise the bar in noontime viewing with a new show for Filipinos here and abroad. “We’re very excited to bring Wowowillie to every household because this is TV5’s first daily noontime variety show. The management feels that the Network is ready to field Wowowillie in the noontime slot in our mission to provide more options to our daytime viewers,” said Perci Intalan, TV5’s First Vice President for Creative and Entertainment Production.
Via a recorded message, Revillame gave a sneak peek on Wowowillie’s new studio, its new and exciting games and segments. Two weeks prior to its pilot episode, excitement is already running high for millions of Filipinos who long for Kuya Wil’s return to daytime. Kuya Wil dominated Pinoy noontime TV for years until he transferred to TV5 where he changed the shape of primetime with “Wil Time Bigtime.”
The upcoming daily noontime show will introduce new segment formats that will bring fun and excitement to daytime in its new home, the Wowowillie Theater along Quezon Avenue. Once built, the studio is expected to house 1,100 guests coming from different parts of the Philippines with its location that is better accessible to public transportation.
