AFTER one month of no-show, Willie Revillame is back on primetime television with brand new program.
The Kapatid Network's variety show "Willing Willie" will be replaced by "Wil Time Bigtime" starting Saturday, May 14, 2011.
It promises bigger and livelier segments, fun and bigtime prizes to enjoy, and the comeback of "Willing Willie" main man Willie Revillame.
"We're very optimistic with what the new show has to offer. 'Wil Time Bigtime' becomes TV5’s strongest link to the masses and we’re offering them a whole new TV viewing experience with the technology we’re utilizing in the show,” said Roberto Barreiro, TV5 executive vice president and chief operating officer.
The program will also use state-of-the-art set with a full high-resolution LED floor for full entertainment experience.
"Ang Wil Time Bigtime ang programa ng mga tao. Ito ay inihahandog namin para mapasaya sila, tulungan silang kalimutan ang kanilang mga problema kahit sa ilang oras lang, at bigyan din sila ng pagkakataon na magkaroon ng magandang buhay," Revillame said.
Valenzuela City Councilor Shalani Soledad is also expected to join Willie in the program.
To recall, Revillame decided to cancel airing "Willing Willie" for two weeks after the controversy on the March 12 episode of the show.
"Willing Willie" earned criticisms from television viewers, celebrities and even government officials over the sexy dance rendered by six-year-old boy Jan Jan on live national television
The show did not return after the two-week break and later on received the one-month suspension order from the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).
The board allowed the variety program to return on May 9, 2011, but placed the show on probation, or on a per-episode permit basis.
Catch "Wil Time Bigtime" this Saturday at 5 p.m. and weeknights at 6:30 p.m. on TV5. (Sunnex)
