'Willing Willie', still off-air this week | 'Willing Willie' makeover, underway

'Willing Willie' , still off-air this week | 'Willing Willie' makeover, underway

The controversial host of Willing Willie, Willie Revillame previously announced that his show will be back in airing episodes on television after a self-imposed 2-week break following the pulling out of ads of its sponsors due to the alleged child abuse on its March 12 episode. However, fans have to wait longer since the break apparently has been extended.

The 2-week hiatus has passed but "Willing Willie" will not air tonight, according to recent reports. There is also no official and definite word yet on when 'Willing Willie' will return on television.

In a recent interview of Willie Revillame's co-host Shalani Soledad though, she said that they will be back soon. She added that their set has undergone a make over as well.

“Sa mga milyong-milyon na naga-abang kung kelan po babalik ang ‘Willing Willie,’ malapit na po. And of course, marami ang ginagawa, marami kaming ini-improve sa show para pag-balik natin mas lalo pang mag-enjoy ang ating mga [manonood],” Soledad announced on "Paparazzi", yesterday.

“Meron na tayong bagong flooring, which we are very proud [of]. This is the first LED flooring sa buong Pilipinas. So abangan niyo po ‘yan,” she added.

Meanwhile, here's a Noypistuff poll started a couple of weeks ago. The number of votes is nearing 5,000. You can still cast yours though since Noypistuff has extended it for another week.

With the recent turn out of events, Willie Revillame has announced that his show "Willing Willie" will be off air for two weeks or until he makes up his mind of continuing the show without the sponsors.

What do you think, guys? Should "Willing Willie" go on air once again? Or is it better for TV5 not to have the show anymore?

The controversial March 12 episode of "Willing Willie" where a 6-year old boy named JanJan Suan did a macho dancing act as his talent in a segment of the show, has been found to constitute child abuse by some government agencies.

The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board is currently investigating on the matter. Meanwhile, the show's sponsors have pulled out their ads on the show.
